{ That sad feeling when you finish a good book }

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

I finished the book, all 608 pages of it.  I think it was a bit of a record time for me to read a book in, considering I don't have much time to sit and really engross myself in a story without having to constantly stop.

I'm not going to say much about it right now, I do plan on reviewing it for you all because I truly think it's one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read.  But yeah, I will do a post on it sometime within the next few days.

Anyway, let me show you my day.  I'm trying to record as much as I can on camera, because I know that years from now I'll really enjoy looking back on my life, what I was doing, and so on.

For a while I preferred to stick to the subject on the other side of the lens, and to not include myself in them at all, but I've started to do the opposite, and to try hard to capture me going about my day, doing my chores or whatever else it may be.  Just think it's so much more interesting that way, though I do plan on continuing to take photos like I always have too.

Boy I can ramble on and on huh?  Hahah

Ok nevermind that, here's what I got up to today.

Morning starts bright and early at 6AM, I make coffee for my husband and then for myself.

I don't often eat a big breakfast or a lot for breakfast, I should say, but this morning I enjoyed one of my frozen breakfast sandwiches.  I make these and then freeze them, the kids and Curt love them as a quick breakfast or sometimes even a lunch or snack.

They're super easy to make, just English Muffins, Sausage, Egg and Cheese.  Yum!!!

You might have noticed two small sausage biscuits on my plate?  That's Mister Marley's breakfast.  They are tiny little sausage biscuits that my husband didn't like, I usually buy him one specific brand and when they didn't have them, I tried a different package.  That wasn't welcomed very well, he did not like the bread or the sausage or whatever, I don't even know.  But nothing is wasted in this house, so once in a while, the little Marley gets to enjoy them.

I checked the mail, said hi to the Alpacas and watched them go about their business for a while.  I could sit out there for hours just watching them.

Watered the plants, got a little more planting done {as you can tell by the soil bag and pots on the bench}, and got rid of yet another Wasp nest.  What is it with these pesky buggers this year?

My Lilies are growing and I'm quite excited to see them in bloom.

What is it with puppies and making a total mess of a living room?  Marley is constantly throwing toys around and pulling the stuffing out of some of his stuffed toys.  I think I spend more time picking up after him than I did picking up after my kids as toddlers.

July 26, 2017

The kids and I sat and chatted in the living room for quite a bit. You know as they grow and become their own people, I sometimes feel that I don't know them as well as I used to.  It's not like it used to be when they were little, and always around me.  I knew their likes and dislikes, their thoughts, what they wanted to do and so on.  Now it's a little more difficult, and they don't always like to talk to me or their dad, so I have learned to treasure these moments when they are talkative and enjoying my company.

I also started my menu plan for the next two weeks.  Friday is grocery shopping day so I need to have it done by then.  I'm trying to keep to easy meals, not too expensive and so on, but I also get a bit tired of the same things over and over and want to try a few new recipes.  We'll see how I do this time.

The dresser is coming along.  I removed the back board which was moldy and falling apart.  I also removed the inside boards behind those doors because they were warped from the water as well.  Then I remembered that I had some extra door handles laying around, so I put those on.  I'll show you the progress as I go along.

Curt is going to help me move the dresser to the driveway this weekend so that I can give it a good sanding and start painting.  I can't wait to show you all the finished result once I'm done with it.  I just hope that my vision of what I want, actually comes true.

I managed to get some more work done on my Blog to Book for 2012, I'm now in the month of August. While doing that I had a stupid craving for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You don't know understand, I'm not a big fan of sandwiches, or peanut butter and jelly, but once in a blue moon I will get a crazy craving and just have to make myself one. So that is what I did. And oh my word, did I enjoy it.

It was another good, busy, homemaking day for me.  And I apologize if I'm in any way boring you all with my homey posts lately, but I wish I could convey through this blog, just how much I love being a homemaker and doing what I do.  I get such immense pleasure out of these every day tasks, that some may find mundane or trivial.  They bring me such joy though :)

For dinner tonight I made an old favorite of ours, the Long Boy Burgers.  The recipe is on Full Bellies for you all.

Another day done and dusted.  And I do have to say that shower time and relaxing afterward is something I look forward to.

I don't have a lot planned for tomorrow, mainly because I have my Yearly Women's appointment in the morning.  It was supposed to be in September, but I don't like putting it off and would rather get it over and done with as soon as possible.  So tomorrow morning it is.  I just wish that I didn't get so nervous about it the day before.  I know there's not a woman out there who actually enjoys these appointments, they are awkward and a bit embarrassing but so necessary, and I've always been very good about going every single year and doing my part, I mean, after all it's my health that's on the line right?

Well I'm going to go and climb into this comfy bed.  Have a wonderful night friends!!!

  3. You reminded me I need to bake homemade english muffins. I've been so busy with my vegetable garden, that I haven't had time. Today I have to can. My cucumbers are coming in quickly this year. The girls are helping me with housework, especially now that I have a bum shoulder. Have a great rest of the week.
