Sunny Sunday

I didn't expect it to be a lovely sunny Sunday, but it is. There's a country ham simmering on the stove, and sunshine streaming through the windows of this ancient home. When we first moved in, there were definitely elements of the previous owners in many forms. My kids know what I'm referring to here. But now, especially now that there aren't any troubled kids here, the energy is very positive and productive. It's a good feeling. I finally feel like I'm "home" even though there is a plan to move from this place in less than 5 years. I guess only time will tell.

Peppers, being exhausted, and so on

Today is the first time I didn't exuberantly welcome one or more of my children here. Frankly, I'm pooped. I feel like I'm pulling teeth sometimes. and that could be work or personal. Either way, my son Anthony called me this evening, and for the first time ever, I had to share that I was TOO POOPED to have him and Destiny over. I have an awesome dinner planned for tomorrow night, pot roasted beef, creamed onions, tomato salad (garden fresh tomatoes!) and cucumbers with sour cream. But tonight, I just couldn't do it. I think I am getting old. Or at least, acknowledging my age. My job is beginning to seriously impact my personal life, lol! So if I take my job, add my personal life = really worn out at the end of the day. I was able, however, through the grace of God, to prepare 9 sheets for drying = 2/peppers and 7 zucchini chips. God is good@

Oh boy, pictures!

I just figured out how to add a picture, and we go! This is Stiva showing Theo the baby he found. Clearly, Theo is the MAN, unless it involves babies, cats, or ladies. Bless his heart!


Well, looking back over the past posts, that's what I would appear to be. The NY Mets blankie sits unfinished, something dear Christopher doesn't deserve.

The garden is AWESEOME, no thanks to me, and as soon as I can figure out how to post those pictures, I will do it.

My dinner (broccoli, onion, bacon quiche) is almost done, so I had better go check the oven.
