Plain Pam's Blog: Last Respects...

While reading my daily blogroll I came upon this:

Plain Pam's Blog: Last Respects...: "One day the members of a large church were greeted with a sign on the front door. The sign said: 'The person who has been hindering your wal..."

Something to think about, eh?

Finally it's Friday

This has been one long week. Last night my daughter and her husband brought my grandbabies over. They are staying for a few days. JJ is almost 2 and Carol is almost 3. Talk about energy! I get tired just watching them run all over the house after their "Auntie Boo" (Heather). She is their favorite person in the world and they cling to her like glue. Grandma comes in a straight second. Oh well. What can I say? Heather is going to make a wonderful mama. Kids just love her.
We have a skunk in our neighborhood that has been spraying all over the place. It concerns me because we only smell it during the daytime. Skunks aren't supposed to be out during daylight, which tells me it could be sick- even rabid. That would not be good if it got one of the dogs or worse, one of the neighborhood kids. I hope it doesn't show up in my yard.

Mount Washmore is taking over!

I will admit it. There are days I just do not want to get out of bed because I know what I am facing that day. Today is one of those days. My alarm went off at 5:50 and I was sorely tempted to not get up. Today is laundry day. I got several loads of hubby's clothes washed yesterday, but today is a totally different thing. It is the day for kids' clothes and towels. Here in this house that means I will be at the washer all day. I am really thinking I need a laundry set-up like the Dugger's have. It would be nice to have 4 washers and 4 dryers, all super-sized. I would also like to have a clothesline, but there is no way that is going to happen with the dogs in the back area, so I will live without one.
My oldest son may be coming back to live here soon. I am really excited. I have missed him so much since he moved to Florida with his father last August. I think he is starting to realize it isn't what he thought it would be.
Today I will also be working in my garden. I spoke to a friend, Maggie, last night and she gave me some pointers that I will be implementing soon. I also need to plant more corn, as apparently it won't pollinate with as few plants as I have now. Long day today folks.
Everyone have a great day!

Scrubbing and Washing Today

Don't you just hate it when your cookie sheets have all that baked-on black stuff on them? I finally got some steel wool and took it upon myself to see silver cookie sheets again. Talk about tired. My arms ache, but there is a certain sense of pleasure there, seeing the silver shining again. Now if I can just get my kids to learn to not leave the sheets in the oven like that...
The other part of today has been spent working on chopping down the laundry pile. I am still working on that one. Lucky for me, dinner is in the crockpot and we have fresh bread in the bread machine so at least I can concentrate on getting the clothes washed and not worry about dinner.

Catching Up

Today was catch-up day. We worked on chores and got a lot done, but there still is more. Tomorrow Sean is testifying in a court case, so we will be out for most of the morning. Heather has school too. Hopefully we won't be in court all day and I can get more done here.
Since getting the garden in I have decided that I planned it poorly and I need to uproot the herbs and move them to pots so I have more room for food items.

I have decided to start this blog over. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with this unlike last time. I got too wrapped up with life.
