Looking out my window…cloudy and still some rain lingering around. Supposed to warm up today but not as HOT as it has been. Yesterday was only 75*! LOVED it!
I am thinking…That time gets away from me so quickly these days.
I am thankful…that school has started! Our son was starting to get board.
One of my favorite things…a quiet rainy day.
I am wearing…black leggings, long blouse, and black heels.
I am creating…I’m still working on my scarf. It’s been a couple weeks since I have been able to pick it up. Can’t sit still that long and I’ve been running late for work (not late but no time to knit before hand).
I am reading…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow and 1001 Arabian Nights.
I’m listening to…The Apostle by John Pollock
I am hoping…to get the medical history from the doctor this week. I really need to get this paperwork turned in. I really don’t like delays. (Oh that crazy patience thing again!)
I am learning…to multi-task in grand fashion! 😉 I have always had more than one thing going on but I went through a phase of simplifying my life that caused me to get rather laid back. Now that things have picked up that are beyond my control I am having to learn to do many things at once again. Not really as good at it as I once was. Is it because I am getting older?
In my kitchen…
Monday – Meatloaf, sweet potatoes, and green beans
Tuesday – Lasagna with salad
Wednesday – BBQ Pork steaks, Hawaiian macaroni salad, baked beans
Thursday – Polish sausage, kraut, fried potatoes, and corn bread
Friday – Leftovers
Saturday – Pizza
Sunday – Fish sticks, Fries, and Mac & Cheese (missed this one last week)
Around the homestead (in place of the school room)…We had our usual vet come out on Tuesday last week. He said our cow
has had something called Hardware disease. She swallowed a piece of metal sometime in her life and it has affected her heart which caused the pneumonia. There was nothing that could be done for her but put her out of her misery. The hardest thing we’ve ever had to do as homesteaders. Dig a hole and shoot her! I cried for hours and my husband turned into a meanie! Men deal with that type of grief differently than women.
In my garden…Our flowers are looking really good with all the rain. I haven’t had to water for a long time.
Shared Quote…This is what I would really like to do!
A moment from my day Closing Notes: School has started for the last time for my young man. He is a senior in high school and if all goes well will be leaving for the Air Force next summer. I think I am ready for “empty nest” but then I have days when I am a total basket case. As in dealing with the multi-tasking that I used to do so well. Maybe I am just not in the frame of mind… Awe well, that is where I’m at right now. Trying to savor every moment.
