I've been a bad blogger.
Things have been so incredibly busy around here lately that I haven't been able to write a good blogpost to save my life. So sorry, folks. I'll try to do better. Really. Maybe in my spare time...LOL! Anyway, this has been weighing heavily on my mind. I do want to do better! I really CAN write well, when I sit down and put my mind to it. So let's hope that the stars will align and I will be able to sit down long enough to get a couple of well-thought-out lines down on this thing.
BUT, until then, here's what's going on around here:The baby chicks are babies no more. Now, it's starting to look like the majority of them are roosters, not hens. That, my friends, is a pisser. Why, you ask? Well, because we have these chickies to lay eggs, that's why!! And in case you aren't aware, roosters DO NOT lay eggs!!! So, we may have to get more chicks!! AGHHHHH!!!! At least this time we know not to get a mixed run...we'll get all hens.
Nothing makes me sigh like this vision out of the back of the house...what is it about a man on a tractor? Is it just me? It looks so peaceful out there...Barry mowing on his beat-up tractor, the leaves beginning to turn...sigh...
Noah and Kendall brought me some hand-picked flowers last night while I was cleaning up after dinner. Doesn't that make every mother's heart flip?Scout is so glad there is a slight chill in the air and the humidity is down. That poor pup has spent the entire summer in the house, laying on the air vents, but here lately, he has been full of energy... especially in the mornings and evenings. Isn't he just a big ol' baby?
I have a light week at work this week, but it's ok. I have plenty of things to do around here to keep me busy. I am weeding out this house. I am feeling that lingering anxiety that comes with having TOO MUCH STUFF. So, there is a huge load going to the HELP House this week, we have donated a few things to our college-age neighbor for her apartment, and quite a bit is going straight to the burn barrel and the trash! Burn, baby, BURN!!! Just get it out of my house! And then, of course, comes the organizing. T, I think I need you!!!
But alas, I am determined to make some headway. And after this past weekend, I feel like I am on a roll. I knocked quite a few things off my to-do list...things that have been sitting there for quite some time. I worked my butt off (too bad that is just a figure of speech!!!). Now that I have finished staining some of the pieces for Noah's room, I just may get it completed so I can post pictures...yeah, I'm talking about the room I started oh, I don't know, like 4 MONTHS ago!!! Teresa has probably written me off by now, haven't you, T??? Either that or your fingers are worn down to the second knuckle from drumming your fingers on your desk, waiting....heeheehee....!
Anyway...you all have a great week! Enjoy the weather!!
