Shoot! I forgot to take a picture of the "clean" front yard! That's right! Things are getting accomplished around here and being marked off that list! :)
Here's the picture (inserted) I forgot to take yesterday...
Thursday at 11:00 a.m. I was in the yard raking and mowing...raking and mowing. For five and a half hours, I raked and mowed! At 4:30 I limped inside, brushed the dust off myself, combed my hair out of my face, shook myself off again, washed my hands, took a Tylenol, and started supper.
When you are, as mama used to say, "simply worn out", it's hard to do anything right! There was pain between my shoulders, my arms and hands felt weak and shaky, there was a blister on my thumb, and my toes were hurting.
Had to get supper started! I needed eggs for the cornbread and salmon patties. I opened the refrigerator and no, I didn't drop the eggs, I knocked over a bowl of garden peas. Peas rolled all the way to the kitchen sink. Peas and juice went under the vegetable drawer, and in the bottom shelf on the refrigerator door, under all the jars and bottles, and made a puddle of peas and juice on the floor in front of the refrigerator. Grabbing a plastic grocery bag and two pieces of cardboard I began raking up peas and juice and dumping it in the bag. Then had to mop the kitchen floor. Why didn't we finish eating those darn peas the night before!!!
With the pea mess cleaned up, I brought out the carton of eggs. The first egg I picked up slipped right through my fingers and splattered on the floor at my feet. Seriously!!!
As tired as I was, supper turned out good...or maybe I was starving! No telling how many calories were burned doing all that raking and mowing! The salmon patties fried up nice and crisp. The stewed cabbage, pinto beans, sliced onion, and cornbread was good too!
Anyway, a few cards are in the mail. Most of the shopping is done. The decorations are up...although I keep standing and staring, wondering, "am I done here"?
Hopefully, all the family will be here Christmas day. That excites me and makes me happy. Lots of cooking to be done.
Thank you for visiting.
