I am not a television person
and do check the weather and news at dawn each morning.
Much is so depressing and realize more and more the issues
I am dealing with at this time of life are nothing compared to what is
going on world wide.
Have finally cleared 2 desks of much mail and clutter, keeping home organized
but garden is full of weeds. A school boy is helping once a week
after school and most now under control.
Have found many who say they will help when I have an emergency
do not show :(
Trip to the market this morning and purchased a rotisserie chicken just off the grill.
Will make a big salad, add some black grapes, tomato, avocado and cucumber.
My one big squash plant is still producing and turnip greens are growing and I will be able to
pick a serving next week.
The tobacco barns are smoking, love the scent and always a reminder of Fall.
Corn in front of cottage will probably be cut in about 2 weeks and once again will be able to see the distant road.
My girls are all busy with their schedules this weekend and seems traveling soccer is always going on.
Looking forward to my favorite New York Times in the morning.
So this one is better
but not where she was months ago.
That's alright because I realize more and more
that my time left on earth is a gift from God
and want to use it wisely. Will just keep moving and doing all I can.
My pleasures are so simple at this time of life,
my books, writing, gardening, flowers (outside and a plant is in every room of this cottage), cooking, healthy food. Must have a mango every other day, yogurt, tea
and a treat of Lavender hand lotion and soap, and
hearing from children and grandchildren so I know all that is going on in their lives.
They are busy and just the way it is suppose to be at this time of their lives.
So at the moment it is starting to rain
and temperature will drop.
Settled in for the weekend
and thank you to all who thought of me....
