This clip pretty much explains it all. LOLOL. We’ve had sunshine off and on for the past week.
There have been times when I thought I bought things for myself, but they were really for somebody else. Of course this happens all of the time with little kids and sweet treats. They give you the pitiful look and whatever treat you thought you were going to enjoy winds up with them. Last week, I found this really neat item courtesy of one of my friends. It was so inspiring and cute that I knew I had to have one – that is, until I realized that it would make a better gift. Maybe someday I’ll get around to having one of my own, but it felt much better to share it in the form of a surprise.
I have two of them. Just thought I’d put that out there.
The sun is shining through my window. I’ve got a few things done around the house, but I have some big things in front of me. Big, demanding, how in the world are we going to get all of this done type of things. I’m not the first to have these obstacles (sometimes it feels that way) and I know I won’t be the last to have them. I think that moments like these leave me in awe of those who have come before me. What stood to hinder their progress was so much more formidable. Sometimes I feel that my generation has so much in the way of opportunities that maybe we have too much.
On the garden front, I’m looking at basil, lettuce, cilantro and possible heirloom tomatoes. I love fresh basil and cilantro. I may grow some other herbs, but I thought I’d start with my favorites.
Putting my children to bed during the day, waking them up in the dark and losing an hour of sleep are not endearing you to me. Just thought you should know.
When I found out I was having little A and that she would be a girl,(who is not so little anymore, btw) I went on a cleaning, planting and painting spree. I planted daisies, azaleas and rhododendrons. I bricked off the flower bed. I painted the entire house in bright colors. Now, I’m dragging myself along just to get two rooms and halls done and a few vegetables planted. I am just as determined as I was back then, so I know I will reach my destination, thankful that I am not in as big a hurry as I used to be.
I came across a really interesting film about the distribution of wealth in our nation. I know that a lot of people balk when the subject is brought up, but it is so important that we regular people inform ourselves on these issues because they significantly impact our nation. The average CEO makes 380 times as much as his or her average worker. I am a strong believer in hard work and the entrepreneurial spirit, but I’ve known and interacted with a few CEOs and while I respect them, I think the ratio is out of balance, even when one considers the responsibilities that come with the job.
