A year ago yesterday, my Mom left for a better place. I miss her and it can be quite empty in my heart sometimes, but not often anymore. I was blessed with a fabulous, caring, funny, loving and smart Mom and I thank the Lord for her every day. It is now time to move on with my own life. I’ve been claiming little bits here and there lately, but I feel free now to celebrate my days as I need and choose. I have sat shiva long enough. In fact, way long enough.
I did rip my Milkweed and restart it. I’m re-enjoying it, too;-P It really is fun to knit.
I have no pictures today, either. I have been too darned hot (I feel a song coming on) and this sudden onset of heat and humidity have taken the stuffing right out of me. It is supposed to moderate a bit this weekend, so I’m hoping I will feel a bit more like taking part in the outside world. I can’t even get Grover interested. I sent him to day-care on Monday to play with his friendz and picked him up about 4:30 p.m. I brought him home and fed him and took him out to do his “business” and he went under the dining room table and went fast asleep. He awakened at 8:15 p.m and went to his night-night bed (that’s the name we use here at Chez Silly). He did not rouse until 5:30 a.m.
And, I have poison ivy. It’s a tiny little patch on my right wrist, but it annoys me and irks me and I have finally caved on the gloves thing. I do solemnly swear that I will wear gardening gloves from now on.
I also had a realization. I really don’t like ironing and most of my spring/summer wardrobe needs ironing. It looks better and I feel better having done it, but I must remember to not buy fabrics that need ironing until I have my own maid. I would dearly love an entire wardrobe of linen.
This has been a truly random Wednesday post, but I forgot to use bullets. I wonder if that will disqualify me from the “Random Wednesday” bloggers’ club?
To send you on your way on this mid-week day, here is the magnificent Nina Simone and “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?”
Have a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
