I have wrote this post several times. The words I selected to paint my view just seem off-I have lived in chaos the past few months. It moved in with the Chiggers-tiny red mites that live outside, in tall grass. It all started at the end of October, but it still hasn't ended. Brakes locking up on our truck, the leach bed needing to be dug up, bailing water on the lawn, washing the bedding every day in hot water-the madness went on. Holidays came and went, than time to resume my new crazy schedule. My husband, Mr. Fix-it is suppose to finish up the yard this weekend. The frigid temperatures and moving our son halted the yard project. Our son and a good friend helped with the yard, around their busy schedules. It was during the Christmas season, our son got a new job in another state. I was helping him move, while husband was at his new job-a company that has roots in Maine. I couldn't do much lifting, but drove, unpacked, and help him get settled in his new apartment. Then the flu arrived and now a cold that has left me with a middle ear infection or what I call a cheap ocean cruise. I sit here at my kitchen table, drinking my cup of Joy tea watching the birds arrive on my deck, to eat the scattered sunflower seeds- I tossed out hours ago. The sun creating a stripped pattern of neon pink light reminding me- I must embrace a new path, begin again, start over, try, try again! I hope you rang the New Year in with warm memories, laughter and light!!! I hope your holidays were wonderful-mine were, than we went returned to our new normal-digging, bailing and tons of laundry. Everything being washed in hot water! So now my favorite pair of jeans are tight, not from holiday treats, but washing them in hot water-lol. We are still trying to figure out why this stick was in our pipe and the final pipe was crimped?!
