Cold enough for you dear imaginary reader ? A couple more days and we will be complaining about the heat perhaps for the last time this summer - a sobering thought. Don’t think that I am quite ready for the cold if the last two days can be used as a measure.
TLOMIL and I had dinner with our friends Knight and Never Stops the other evening, always a good time...as usual my guy was his usual witty self; always ready with a story or a new joke (please be a new joke was my main thought or the evening shhhh, don’t tell him). We hadn’t seen them in a while, eventually we got around with catching up regarding our families and our selves - I wasn’t that great at sharing what I have been up to, what a surprise! Thank goodness Knight reads this (ok, so I know a couple of not so imaginary readers, though am thankful for all of you (3, haha) ! Anyhooo..the next day I had sort of the same conversation with Silly who by the way is rocking the new job, not there was ever any doubt. I thought to myself, perhaps it was time to reflect on progress and yes, avoidances.
This summer has been a busy one, the heat slowed us down but as my hipstagram account has been leading to, we finally finished chipping all the shake!
I have begun to move it around though the rain yesterday slowed my progress and currently I am avoiding the cold by writing this :). It is my hope that by the time I have all the gardens put to bed that I will feel caught up, weird I know but having to wait for the roof to be completed put us behind. Then the heat, then vacation, then avoidance again. Amazing what else you can find to do sometimes isnt it dear imaginary reader?
At times, I choose to torture myself by attempting to knit, I am not good at it and have been promised that at some point I will begin to enjoy it (really???????). I have been working on this small piece all since the end of June.
Due to technical issues this last week, I am joining this blog already in progress hahah!
As predicted above, it got warm again, have enjoyed our pool more in the last week then the whole summer. You no longer feel cooked when on the pool deck. The mulch is almost totally spread - our yard finally looks ready for summer just in time to close things up, sad but true. It is amazing how one thing can have a major impact on the rest of your plans. Love the new roof but.....
I found myself last week feeling scattered and rushed, in the end content with the forced break Weebly made me take. Feeling like you are running out of time is not a good feeling dear imaginary reader. The count down is on the TLOMIL’s hinge replacement, I’m feeling the need to be organized, everything in its place. My refrain for the week was once again, it doesn’t have to be perfect - just better. I had no idea how often I was saying that to myself until last week. I guess that’s the way I am handling one little part of self care.
So with that dear imaginary reader I must get back to some tasks already in progress..I have taken on a volunteer position along with the Boy and DC..more about that later. Take good care!
