First, the sad part.
It is with much sadness that I share the news
that one of my favorite bloggers, Vee,
of A Haven for Vee lost her beloved husband, John,
who was called home to be with the Lord on May 28.
Please join me in praying for Vee and her family.
We were happy that most of our Memorial Day weekend
was sunny and nice. Hot and humid, but at least
the rains previously called for held off most of the time.
We've had lots of rain since I last posted. The soil at
the cemeteries was soft and made poking flowers in the
ground much easier. It is tradition in our area to decorate
the graves of our loved ones as well as those who died in the
service of our country.
Our daughter, Kim, celebrated a birthday recently. Among other
things, she received 2 beautiful bouquets of flowers. I know
that I took photos of them, but I couldn't find one while I
prepared this post. We met her and our son for dinner one
evening near KC to celebrate the happy occasion. We had lots
of laughs remembering some of the funny moments we've shared.
Brett and I still laugh and laugh when we recall
the time we saw a carload of women driving down the
walkway one night at the Landing in Branson. It was
a hilarious sight. We don't know how they got there,
it is not meant for cars! They must have mistaken the
wide brick walkway for a street!
Remember seeing this cat's photo? When it showed up at
our house in February, I thought it was a male. Well.....
She went away for awhile, but came back bearing gifts.
Er...kittens. Five of them.
We're not real happy about this new development, but I
have to admit...they make you smile when you watch them
playing. So cute!
It's the little things that so often make me smile. See the
double yolked egg? That is the third one out of the same
carton of eggs. I rarely ever see one!
This is an old photo from 2 weeks ago so it's hard to tell, but
my flowers are really taking off after the weather has
warmed up. I'm happy that I found the colorful rooster
this spring to add to that corner, he makes me smile, too.
Now I'm sure y'all have been waiting impatiently to find
out what has ruffled my feathers. Ha.
Well, I'm mad at myself. Me. Myself. And I.
Yes, I'm so aggravated that I've fallen into the ole
procrastination trap and I've been running here and there
ignoring all the little and not so little jobs that I had once
planned to have done by now.
Even though blogging has slowed down for me, it
obviously wasn't to work on those jobs, so I'm going to
take an extended blog break. I don't know how
long I'll be away and even though I won't take time to
comment much, I'll try to visit from time to time to catch
up on everyone.
Wish me luck in getting some much needed work done.
The spirit is willing, but the aging body
is wanting to do nothing more than sit in a comfy chair
with the laptop! It's easy to do when you have an old
ankle injury and a newly bum knee. But, I need to read
this article often and get moving as much as I can.
Take care and enjoy your day!
