It’s almost 10 pm, and I’m sitting in front of the laptop again. I almost feel decadent for the ability to just sit and relax here. At any rate, I just feel good.
However it’s been an interesting evening. I have been down with a bit of a stomach bug, and there isn’t much I can do right now. It started this morning with a bit of “uh oh” and progressed to a bit of pain etc… I took my medicine for it, but it’s definitely still there.
So, what I did was take care of the critters around noon, and just did as much as I could. It’s one of those days where sometimes even a little bit at a time is progress.
The temps got back into the low 80’s again today. It stays in the 70’s in the house, but it’s definitely time to implement the shut windows policy during the day. At night, we open the windows up in order to cool the building down. In the morning, we have to close them, and just keep the house as locked tight as I can keep it.
The house maintains temperature pretty well, and for that I’m grateful.
Spent most of the day on the internet, doing a little research, as well as working on my book. No, this isn’t the only writing I do, and yes, I do hope to publish some day. I’m turning it into a job, and it works for me. Maybe someday I’ll be a household name. This year, well not so much.
I’m just grateful that folks are willing to take a look at the blog occasionally.
I did sit down with some yarn tonight until the mosquitoes and I had a swatting battle. While it did sprinkle for a few minutes, it didn’t do enough to knock the mosquitoes down. Drat and double drat. The flying infidels are just plain evil and mean.
Oh well, Life Gets Teejious, Don’t It.
It’s a part of life on the farm. This year, the bugs are bad. Maybe next year, or the next, there won’t be as many. In the meantime, there’s work to do.
I got a phone call today, and I am glad she called. I found out that my Dr’s appointment isn’t until the 6th. Ugh. So, while it is a good thing, it kinda wrecks my plans a little bit.
I Dr in Minnesota yet, and I was hoping to get groceries over there, as they are a little cheaper and tax free. However, waiting to purchase till the 6th throws a wrench in some of my plans. I put several things on hold on the grocery list until I can afford them.
That’s how it goes. Putting some of these things on hold just isn’t going to work very well. There are definite necessities of life.
I’ve been so poor in the past that I used cloth diapers as my monthly necessity before I had the change of life. Thankfully, we aren’t quite at that point now. However, coming up there’s a huge mess from the County getting shoved down our throats.
I’m not ready to talk about it here on the blog just yet. However, when I know more, I will let you know.
That’s all for now, have a good night,
Louise Ann Benjamin
