Happy Tuesday Friends ☀️
I'm late this week, but still wanted to pop in and say hello. I hope your week is starting out right! Summer is in full swing here and all that busy that goes with it. Relatives coming to visit. Family reunions coming up. Summer hockey. Summer holidays and times with friends. And I'm here for it all. ☀️ We've already had cozy thunderstorms. My flowers are thriving. I've watched fireflies out on the hill on perfect warm nights. Ruby even chased a bear up a tree! That hasn't happened in a few years...but just another sign of the season around here. Lol
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
gray and sounds like thunderstorms coming in so no sun shining in right now - I'm listening to praise and worship music and I can hear that dryer thumping along
I have been jumping between some end of life doula literature I recently picked up, and a book about ending long term relationships that goes in tandem with my therapy
ON THE TV TODAY:
AGT , The Chase, The Hustler, (the kids and I like to watch these shows together), I've been binge watching some vlogs on youtube but mostly bingeing the Handmaids Tale on Hulu, food network and HGTV shows
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
Since it's mainly Annie and I, there is so much less formal cooking going on to really share a weekly menu right now. So instead I will try to share a recipe here each week.
TO RELAX THIS WEEK I WILL:
scrapbook, read, watch a show, sip a glass of wine out on the deck on a perfect night, go to lunch with a girlfriend
TIPS OR SOMETHING TO SHARE:
FROM THE CAMERA:
My summer quaint box came the other day. Lots of fun goodies!
Ruby chased a bear up a tree and he stayed up there for over 10 hours!
My FB memories keep getting me right in the feels. I miss my MIL so much. She was one of my best friends in the whole world. And what's so sad is I know if she had been able to be here, life would have been so different. Ad was so close with her and her alzheimers truly began his depression and downfall. It hurts so much knowing how incredibly sad and disappointed she would be with what has happened with our family...and especially with Ad's current choices and how it brings continued pain to his kids and I. 😢🙏 I believe she's up there praying for us all though.
I pray for an end to this virus. For peace, healing and unity in our world. I pray for anyone sick, suffering, isolated, and afraid - for their peace and comfort. Please Lord give strength to those fighting the virus on the frontlines. 🙏 And may the vaccines continue to help the numbers go down and life continue to become more normal. For special intentions. For an Uncle with a recent cancer diagnosis.
