I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. This week looks to be a bit stressful. Or, at least, stressfuller than usual. I’m just planning on going with the flow.
Do you have huge plans for the upcoming holiday? I don’t. I’m going to my BB’s and BSIL’s house. We are going to have a “one short” Thanksgiving. Our Peanut is not able to come home, so we will have our Lil Bit only this year. It’s okay, but we will miss our Peanut terribly. And, I think, our Lil Bit will miss her the most! My duties are to bring an appetizer, Swedish meatballs, and a veggie, Italian peas, and wine. I’m set. All I’m lacking is the cooking and it’s just a tad too early to do that.
The big boy, Grover, has come to a point of happiness and I’m not sure how he got there. I think part of it is that he isn’t stuck in the house for 9 or 10 hours at a time with no breaks. I also think he is finally at a point of not mourning my Mom. When Mom died, he no longer played with his stuffed squeaky toys. He would carry them around, but not pounce on them and bounce around. This weekend, he started playing again. He throws his squeaky toy and pounces on it (the floor just shakes). It’s so dear to watch. I’m grateful. It’s been 18 months since Mom died. That’s a loyal friend and it is interesting that dogs mourn much like we do.
So, I’m a bit dull. We had a spaghetti dinner at church on Saturday for a fundraiser for our utility fund mission. It was wonderful, but I worked the kitchen and I was exhausted when I got home. There was a cakewalk and a silent service auction and it was a huge success. I was so happy because it was also a fun time. Being a do-gooder is rewarding, but there is a seriousness about it that wears you down. Having a fun time (dinner included!) makes being a do-gooder more fun and it also builds a stronger community.
So, since I’m a bit dull (and repetitive), I will leave you with my soundtrack of the day. Here are the Stones and a favorite of mine. “Let’s Spend the Night Together”.
Have a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
