Most unusual day

Sunday, June 13, 2010

We seemed to be under the clouds, drizzle, rain, drizzle machine most of the day. The sun came out very briefly (5 minutes) and the rain in moving in again tonight.
Today was my day of rest and I used it to my advantage. I took a nap, woke refreshed and
decided to plant the 8 raspberries bushes that SIL brought from West River. We toured the
farm, did chores, glanced at the garden (looks more like a lake) and came home. I put supper in the oven and packed a one gallon jar of asparagus to pickle. Took longer to pack than
the rest of the process but it will be good eats at State Fair time.
We're waiting for the neighbor to start his fire pit and we'll go sit outside for a time. Might even be that the bugs are taking the day off too.
A quote from FROSTY99's blog "Look forward to simple things, enjoy life and be happy for all
that you do have".
I am counting my blessings because there is someone else who is
struggling with greater issues that I can imagine.
I think my life is pretty good. emoticon
Thanks for stopping by!

    Thank you for the reminder - there is always someone worse off than you are. I was feeling a little sad with the loss of a dear aunt who reached the ripe old age of 89, but she lived a good life, and is in a better place. My life is pretty darn good, too!

Waiting, waiting

Saturday, June 12, 2010

for the sun to shine and the rain to stop. I have had the water on the stove for almost an hour so we could butcher some chickens. I've turned it down on low as it started raining just as
we were getting ready to do the deed. Hmmm! I'll work in the basement until then. I finally
have the pieces I needed for the shelves and want to get more set up AFTER the chickens are
cooling. So, I'll just some now. How quickly the worm turns LOL!
Focus on your goals! Life happens and we take a wrong turn down a different path. We'll
get to our destination eventually. It just makes the journey a little longer. But if we learn something on the way, maybe that's okay too. It's all in the attitude! So stay positive and
get to where you want to be. emoticon
Thanks for stopping by. I might just have more to muse on later.

Birthday boy!

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Here's my little smiling grandson at his 2nd birthday! We had a blast! He (and the other 3 grandchildren) really enjoyed his new sandbox that DS made in shop class at school.
Sadly, my camera's batteries were almost depleted so I only had 3 pics.
This was thebest one. Lots of new sandbox toys were included in his presents.
Fun times ahead for the summer when the sand dries out. We had
2 1/2 inches of rain here but I am sure DD saw much the same this morning.
I stayed in range thanks to all the fresh fruit and sugar free jello squares. Grilled
hamburgers for the kids, brats and german sausage and kabobs. I did pass on the potato
salad but fell victum to the taco salad. One little piece of birthday cake and a smidge of
ice cream and this grandma was happy!
Hope your skies are sunny and blue! Think positive, act positive and be positive! Life is more
fun that way! emoticon

Change of plans

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

The weather changed my plans for today. Little too damp and muddy for butchering the chickens so I folded laundry instead. Another busy day in the office. It was election day, too, so I voted early. Lots of errands to do today as well.
Last night I pulled a prime rib roast out of the freezer. It was enough to feed us, the 3 boys and DD and family. I baked potatoes and made asparagus. Oh, what a treat! I have a
wicked good recipe for prime rib that turns out every time.
DH had picked strawberries with his mom and I had 4 ice cream pails full that needed to
be made into jam. 16 pints of luscious red jam are cooling now. And it tastes good too.
Share a smile tomorrow and brighten someone's day. emoticon
Have a happy and healthy Wednesday!

Keep on moving Monday!

Monday, June 07, 2010

Today was a day to keep on moving to stay one step ahead. Full day of work, then out to do chores as DH was gone. Even took time to cut asparagus before the heavy rain that is forecast for tonight. Home for a quick salad for supper, then off to EMT class. Picked strawberries at oldest son's house and then back home to have a chicken breast sandwich
before locking up the chickens.
They may be spared another day. If it rains tonight, we will postpone butchering so we can
stay dry. We do most of the messy stuff outside and then finish up in the basement. Ah,
fun! They grow up so fast.
Balance your day with just the right amounts of food and activity. See where you want to be and work for your goal. Make a date with success! emoticon
Thanks for reading!

    It is rainy/drippy here so maybe those chickens get one more day of scratching and pecking.
Hope you are having a great week and SEE YOU TOMORROW!!
