What a beautiful day! The sunrise this morning was gorgeous and I decided to glory in what I *could* see instead of bemoaning the fact that I couldn’t leave the house to head to my better view. The humidity is only 35% and I have the windows open. Most of the morning work is done … Continue reading Glorious Day
(Patient in the ambulance) I’m exhausted, but there’s not really any good reason for it. Father took Duchess up to Dallas so she could surprise her boyfriend for his birthday. That’s a generous man, right there. They’ll be back tomorrow. This week we did the Canon of St. Andrew Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and the … Continue reading The week’s end
Yes, this is Tuesday and not the beginning of the week, but sometimes I get a late start.* There’s always so much optimism in the beginning of a week. I imagine how productive I will be, how I will stick to the diet, how I will wear my step-counter and exercise more, how I will … Continue reading New Week
My heart is heavy and I couldn’t get past it to write any blog posts. Just now I decided to face up to it and just post and get it over with. Friday we lost Smokey. He was hit by a car. I found out through a neighborhood post about a grey and white cat … Continue reading The past week
I didn’t even know these succulents bloomed. Look at the cool symmetry of this weed. New grass under the bird feeder. After posting these pictures I looked back over them and decided anyone could be forgiven if he thought it looked like a spring slideshow. Truth be told, it has felt more like spring than … Continue reading Rolling along
[Photo completely at odds with my disjointed state of mind] Moving is a pain. I mean, it's good, it has some good aspects, but overall it's dreadful. I'm very overwhelmed right now. The big girls have gone back to school so I can't reply on them to help with little ones. It's house blessing season … Continue reading Overwhelmed
I'm tired. It's been a struggle to accomplish anything lately. Sometimes life really feels like a hamster wheel. All I can do it try to put one foot in front of another. Keep praying. Distance myself from the news because it only drags me down. God knows my struggles. There's sunshine somewhere.
Father has wanted a fish tank forever. He decided to get one for his birthday, and Wednesday (his actual birthday) he got the first eight fish. Everyone has loved looking at them. We've been treated to some lovely sunsets lately. Here you can see the crescent moon too: Moppet has been longing for a BIG … Continue reading Bits and pieces
I have no shiny resolutions for 2019. I don't think it's that I'm jaded; I think I'm just in a day-to-day survival mode. After 10 or so days with not more than 2 consecutive hours of sleep, it happens. When small children are sick it consumes your life. I'm not so much pessimistic as I … Continue reading Collecting Thoughts
