A comfortable place to sit, and enjoy the day…
This is my banter for Tuesday August 20th..
Hello all you beautiful people:: Monday has come and gone and we are starting our walk through the week. I hope your Monday was prosperous, and fun for all you came in touch with.. Last night it rained a lot, and for along time.. I went out in the morning with the puppies and stepped into a puddle of water.. I didn’t expect there would be any water on the porch rug.. As I looked towards the stairs, the rug was dry and so were the deck boards.. I think the coolness of the water startled me, as I turned to see what the wet was from.. It was the kind of surprise you get when you are walking around, looking out for doggie bombs.. You watch so carefully, missing everyone you see.. As you turn one doggie bomb gets ya, as it squishes between your toes.. ‘That kind of surprise’.. And, yes.. I have found a few of those, doggie bombs over the years.. The feeling makes your whole body shiver. The water did surprise me.. The air had a coolness to it, yet it was hot. That could be because of the direct sun light we get on our patio doors. I have thermal, black out curtains, and they seem to do a pretty good job. The sun does shine full out on the windows for the better part of the day.. But, any hoo the day was starting out pretty darn nice.. I even found time later in the afternoon to sit on the porch, and play my game..
Beautiful peach colored Begonias..
This game drives me insane.. All I want to do is master the cards, so I can win.. The saddest part of the game is that half the time, there are cards that come up and you can’t use them anywhere.. It’s crazy when you are doing good, and you run into a deck that hinders your winning.. It’s very frustrating.. I have had a couple games that if you purchase points you will win.. But, is that all worth it.. I like to keep going on and trying to out smart the game.. Somedays all you can do is win, then there are those days when the game messes with your mind.. I am not a gamer, just a solitaire, yatzy, and cribbage player.. Helps me pass the time when there is nothing to do.. It calms me down, then heats me up again.. My hubby will laugh at me sometimes, as I talk to the game. ‘Yup, that proves it.’ ‘I am going loony.’ It’s a space filler in between loads of laundry. ‘Yes today was the day for doing the laundry.’ ‘I didn’t have much, which was nice.’ That was done and over with long before dinner time.. The couple next door had their grand-daughter through out the day.. They were in their yard, and my two little dogs barked at the little girl.. They would never hurt her, they just act tough.. I have this house that emits a sound they don’t like. I turned it on high and two little dogs stopped barking went inside the house.. It’s nice when things work like that.. Tiny flowers…
As I have said before, picking out something to make for dinner is stressful.. If it was just me I would have a grilled cheese, or egg salad sandwich. That would be good for me.. Unfortunately, that won’t feed two hungry fellas.. There has to be something else to fill the hunger.. Tonight, it was pork tender loin on the barbeque, potatoes, and some kind of veggie.. Right now, I can hear my mind thinking about tomorrows dinner.. ‘Hey, how about Kraft dinner??’ Not in this house.. I’m the only one who would eat it.. I have a meat and potatoes kind of hubby, and grandson.. Once in while a sandwich with fries will hit the spot.. I like to cook, but just sometimes I want a break away from the stove.. I had no idea that Princesses had to work so hard.. Ha! Ha! Only in fairy tales and the movies.. I guess we are all facing the same dilemma each day.. And we carry our burden with pride.. So, cook on, and be proud of what you create.. 🙂 Till later.. Take care and be safe.. 🙂 🙂
