Do you ever sit down and say "I'm so happy, I completely love my life"?
I find myself doing that quite often. I'm not rich in the wealthy, money kind of way, but I am absolutely filthy rich in love from my family. I don't think there is anything that I would change about who I am and where I live....well maybe that part yes, you know I really don't like Arizona LOL....but other than that I'm content and I'm happy and I am thrilled to be on this roller coaster we call life.
I try to live every moment to the fullest, try to live without leaving anything undone or put off for a better day. So far I think I've succeeded in becoming one of the happiest women alive. No really, I'm not joking, that's how I feel. Do you ever get that feeling?
So I'm sitting here this morning and my back is feeling so much better, after a hot bath Curt rubbed some Icy Hot on the painful areas and I took to bed....what a difference it made. Thank you for your well wishes :)
I've done no housework today, other than the small things like cleaning up after breakfast or throwing in a load of laundry, thankfully with all my cleaning done the previous days, I can get away with a day or two of minor tidying up, which is just what I need right now.
But you know, I couldn't pass up the opportunity of picking some fresh lemons for a Lemon Pie later today. My tree is over filling with ripe, yellow, citrusy scented lemons, so much so that some of the lower branches are dipping to the ground.
Let's take our bowl and go pick some nice ones for our pie, shall we?
Oooohhhhh I'm already drooling just thinking of that pie for dinner....but you know what? This picture made me realize that my camera lenses has a dirty spot. See it there on the middle right? Looks like a smudge doesn't it? Guess I'll be cleaning that before I forget.
I updated the food blog with another recipe this morning, Creamy Oven Chicken and later today I'll have the one for tonight's dinner up......I'm making Beef and Bacon Pinwheels. Yum!
Now let's talk, a couple of you have asked me how I get so much done during the day and quite frankly I don't know how to explain, see for me, I don't think I'm getting much done, I think that over the years I've come up with a Daily Routine that works for me and as the kids get older and start school etc, I just adjust it to whatever is going on. As a matter of fact, my routine sometimes changes from year to year according to what is happening around me.
For the most part though, it remains the same, here it is for those who were curious. One trick I've learned over the years.....ALWAYS schedule in time for yourself, give yourself an hour to do whatever you want, be it reading or knitting or crafting or just sitting down with a big bowl of ice cream watching trashy TV. It works and it recharges you during the day and does wonders for your attitude....try it.
And don't think that if I veer off the schedule the earth will end, it won't....some days I don't need to do laundry do I use that time for something else, or there will be no errands to run, so I'll do yard work or look through cookbooks or plan my menus or something.
One thing is for sure, I don't leave any minute of the day free.
Right now I have laundry finishing up and I'm going to figure out some lunch for Curt and I, he goes in to work in about two hours.
Thank you for stopping by and chatting with me for a bit.....
