It’s been a heck of A WEEK!
Well hey there dear imaginary reader, I hope your week has been a fun filled as mine has!
I haven’t shared with you yet about a couple of really cool things that have been happening here in the middle of nowhere lately, and they have been keeping me busy this week. First of all a couple of months ago DC and the boy got engaged, that’s right, I am going to be MOG! It is very exciting for our families, I am happy to share that LLB, Baby girl and I were invited to go dress shopping last night. It was so much fun and of course DC looked amazing in everything she tried on. At one point we three girls and DC’s Mom and soon to be SIL had a group cry..we got poor DC going as well. Yes folks, I am a big cry baby looking for a place to happen, its true, I admit it.
Point two is this - several weeks ago Baby Girl asked me why her name was what it is in this Blog - my response “well it is your position in the family”. We agreed I would change her name to one more fitting “the grown ass woman that I am Mom” when she got a job. Low and behold - Baby Girl has morphed into Teach! Yes sir - got her first real live teaching job to begin this fall. So exciting, so proud of her!
Another note which makes me happy for strange reasons is that the love of my immediate life has decided (for a little while at least) to become unretold! He is having fun working out some business issues for a company and that makes his heart sing most days. I like it because I can accomplish what ever I want, when ever I want around here. I have actually had the bed to myself for a couple of days, its been great! Now just between me and you I am ready for him to come home.....
This week has also brought on the task of proof reading letters for LLB as she applies for a position to article. My fingers and toes are crossed for her - she will be an amazing lawyer.
The gardens are coming along, I thought today that as a gardener I will never be happy. I had to remind myself that it is only the first pass through my back gardens this year, I need to be happy with better and not perfect. I guess I could say that about more than just my gardens. I shared a couple of pictures on Instagram yesterday, they are coming along. It has been brutal working in this heat, but it has to be done before we get going on more mulch.
Ya know, it seems only yesterday that I was struggling getting the new car seat hooked on to a grocery cart while wrangling the two older kids. Now, they are all moving forward, a good thing but perhaps a tad unsettling for me as well. It’s a bit of a maze but then...I like puzzles dear imaginary reader.
I leave you with a picture of Oli, he who only wants to come in when he is good and ready these days...
