I got up this morning and feel pretty good. I have a project for today – cleaning the lower kitchen cabinets. I finished the upper cabinets yesterday. They are pretty bare but they are clean and ready for groceries. I called my big strong hubby to check out a spider which was definitely a black widow. She was busy making herself a home in the back of the top shelf. Steve squished her with a sun screen bottle. Ew. Any other kind of spider and we’d have caught and carried her outside.
I walked out and checked my new seedlings – it’s chilly and they are growing slowly. It should warm up again in the next couple days.
I have coffee. The Goddess is is vibrant BLUE this morning!
I’m going to make out a good grocery list today to use on the 11th. OMG that’s tomorrow!
Speaking of the 11th. My blessings to everyone on that day. We were all effected. 10 yrs ago, I wanted to gather my family around me and stay at home. It took every bit of strength I could muster to let us emerge from my cocoon thoughts. I guess the media thinks remembering all the tragedy visually, is the way to go. Every year, terrorists try to cripple us with fear. We allow it. We are forever changed. I think we should keep our memories and share them in our homes. The Cherokee people were storytellers. We taught through our stories; remembered through our stories; and walked forward with our stories. Whipping the fear and sadness back up each year upsets me badly. It’s not the right way to remember. It’s like, the difference between watching a story and reading a story. I don’t think we need the visuals to accomplish the understanding. Yeah well, what do I know?
I have 2 panels finished of the 8 I need to make G’s new afghan. He needs a blanket to crawl under this winter. I remember last winter and how cold we were – it’s still gonna be cold this year. lol No money appeared to fix the heater so I am preparing. The blanket will be very “Army” looking.
We won $50 cash last night. I’m going to insist Steve get shoes and we pay the tag/taxes on the Jimmy. AND we won $50 house cash. Two firsts in a row.
The little dog cookies I made lasted 2 weeks! Jackie settled into accepting them without too much coaxing. $1 for 2 weeks of treats. Wonderful trick.
There is fish for dinner tonight. I’ll fry it I think. we’ll have potato soup and a mixed green salad. Actually, I can’t wait.
So what else? Say a prayer for my youngest girl. She’s got a hell of a day ahead.
– aside from being dry enough to plant the rest of the seeds, I think that’s it. Just good stuff this morning. Good stuff.
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ oh yeah, our autumn girl has been active weaving her magic outside the front window. Isn’t she lovely?
