A day in the life - Tuesday, August 25 20151:40 PM
Hi ladies, welcome to another Day in the Life.
My days are pretty consistent, I tend to keep the same routines, but once in a while, depending on what is going on in my life at the moment, things are added or removed. Lately, my life has seen an increased surge in sewing, painting and armor making, as if I didn't already have enough on my plate, right?
Anyway, come along with me and let me show my yesterday.
5:30 AM....I am up with hubby to make him coffee before he heads off to work. Most days I get right on with computer work, but sometimes, if I'm not feeling well or my Sciatica is kicking up, I lay on the couch with Miss Lola and try to get back to sleep until about 7AM.
7:00 AM....up and at 'em. Get dressed, make myself some breakfast, clean up the kitchen. You know I always walk into my kitchen in the morning and find remnants of my children's late nights. Ramen noodles wrappers, Nerf guns, bowls and glasses etc. Annoying, but I also know that one day I'll miss waking up to these things.
8:00 AM.....let the girls out to go potty.
I've been upping my water intake again, the past few months with the moving I haven't been very good at drinking water and have overdone the soda. Time to get back on track.
10:00 AM....went to check the mail and took a little walk around the front yard, we figured out that we have 5 Pecan trees in our property, so excited. These little guys were on the ground.
We had one of our trees break and the realtors sent out someone to take care of it. They were kind enough to chop it all down for fire wood and left us two piles, one in the back and one in the front. This weekend, Curt and I will move them to a designated spot, I know it may seem a bit early to be doing this, but I think if we start now we'll have plenty of wood for the upcoming winter.
One thing I've also noticed is that we have a huge amount of butterflies in our property, beautiful, big bunches of butterflies fluttering around all over the place.
12:30 PM....lunch time. Usually it consists of sandwiches or leftovers, but yesterday I was craving something sweet and something different, so I went for this instead...
3:00 PM....bread rising for homemade hotdog rolls.
In between all these homemaking chores, I also have my daughter's cosplay armor going which is taking up a lot of my time. One nice thing about it is that it's enabled me to get my sewing machine back out and some much needed sewing therapy going, right in front of the big living room window.
And that my friends, is basically how my day went. It was a busy flurry of tasks going on, I feel like the moment my feet hit the ground it's non stop until bed time, unless you count the time I sit down to compose this post.
I'm still loving where I'm at, I know I've said that so many times but I truly haven't felt this way in many years.
I've tried to be happy where our lives have taken us, and sometimes I felt successful in that and other times I didn't. True contentment wasn't always found in my life, but I must say that right now, this is pretty close to being absolutely and 100% content. I'll take it!!!
The Lord always knows exactly what we need and where we need to be, and I believe he places us in those places throughout out lives, so that we may learn some valuable lessons.
I thank Him every single morning and night, for blessing us and for where we are right now.
Is life perfect at the moment, do I have a good financial stability, are there stresses and outside factors affecting us? No life is not perfect, no we do not have financial stability right now, and yes there are many stresses and outside factors affecting us, but it's all part of the journey we're on, and though not always welcomed, they are to be embraced and learned from.
So, I'm off to make some pizza dough for tonight's dinner, then I believe I have more painting and sewing ahead, life is fast paced lately and I'm counting down the minutes until it all slows down. For now though, I'll just knock back another cup of coffee and roll with the punches.
