Oh My Goodness!
Well, how could I forget my blog-aversary! I have been planning and planning on what I could do for it and it just slipped past me. You know the usual junk that goes on in my life . . . You dont?
Let's take a stroll through my day, today.
Woke up, drank a cuppa coffee without realizing I was really awake. Sent out hundreds of newsletters for The Humble Arts, peeked around a few of my groups. Made a half decent breakfast for Luscious and I. Went across the road to take care of my grand dog, Sundance, while my son is out of town.
Sounds so ordinary so far, right? In my average day, I always discover I am a magnet for something or other.
I worked out in the yard with hubs. Lots of cutting and tugging on shrubbery that had become unrecognizable because of Virginia Creeper and Grape Ivy. Got side tracked and made a few wreaths to dry out on the fence. Hubs left to go get us some bombs for the house since fleas have started to manifest. While he was gone, I sat under the big oak out back. It is my favorite tree. Looking at the makeshift table between the benches, I noticed a cup full of sunflower seeds I had left soaking. Those really need to get sown today.
Being up a few hours by now, I made a fresh pot of Joe. Going back to my spot under the tree, I get up every few minutes to grab a handful of weeds that are encroaching . While pulling up some weeds, I see that my red hot poker at the edge of the woods is starting to bloom! Wee Dawgies! A first bloomer for me! Running over to admire it, I then noticed that the ground hog is back. He is trying to get into the veggie garden ~ Larry's rabbit wire has done the trick of keeping him out temporarily.
Remembering my coffee, I go and sit back down. The blasted huge black birds are trying to scavenge my compost pile. I reach for my cup and take a big gulp of the now cooled coffee. Only it isn't coffee. It is sunflower seeds in nasty water. Unfortunately, before I could spew them all out, I swallowed a few.
Luscious comes home and we begin the bombing process. Dinah Kitty is in her little carrier crying her displeasure.
Duke the basset bomb is sleeping under the blueberry bushes.
Once we get the bombs off, we get back to yard work. So much fun. By now, it is 90 degrees. With every reach upward, I am assaulted by my own body. I assured Luscious that we didn't need to bomb. I could have lifted my pits and killed every living thing in the house. Or at least caught a few like fly paper.
Since the house is being bombed, we decided it was a good time to wash the dog. The water felt so good, I had to squirt Luscious down and he, being a turn about is fair play kind of guy, hosed me down. Kind of fun to have your own wet t shirt contest in the back yard. Duke was not amused.
Just as we were drying the hound off, a sudden boom of thunder and down came the rain. Ready or not, we run into the house.
After we open windows and get dry, I check in on my group and hip hip hooray have had several sales today.
I knew that there was something I was supposed to be doing special today, but do you think that between drinking sunflower seeds, being overwhelmed by B.O. and having fun in the back yard with hubs that I could remember it was my BLOG aversary!
heckfire shoot! I didn't even check my blog stuff until I sat down a few minutes ago. Some kind soul left me a comment saying Happy Blogaversary. They are automatically entered into my big giveaway!
Okay, you are now assured that I have a very disorganized mind. But I am always a party to myself. Good thing I understand me. It all makes perfect sense to me.
I will plan something and have a wonderful belated anniversary party this week. Lots of bells and whistles. Be sure and check back and be sure to tell your buddies. I will be having some giveaways - everyone likes free!
Now for that long awaited shower.
