this week

When I think ahead to this day, I get a tad worried that perhaps I wont get to all that I need to get to. I reassure myself: at least I'll have time to put up a post!

When I think ahead to this week, I get a tad worried that chaos will reign and nothing will go as planned.

It is setting out to be an incredibly complicated set of days!

Let's consider each day as it presents itself. I favor the attitude Ed and I tend to adopt when we face too many challenges all at once: take each as it comes and don't worry where you wind up at the end of the day.

So let's start together, with today. You know how it begins!

In the middle of the day, there is all the stuff that fills my calendar page: appointments, last minute shopping (I MUST have a better fitting pair of pants!), pick up this for Ed, wash the car (try parking an automobile under a willow in mid-summer... you'll understand), get that, mail this... on and on and on. Let's bypass it all and get to the afternoon with Snowdrop!

Oh, do I love that girl! A commenter asked -- who'll miss who most? That's easy! Me her.

(She is now officially moving forward on all fours.)

(And her smile is ever present, ever contagious.)

And eating? Is she into her banana? Workin' on it.

Time for me to go home.

This is always the tough part -- leaving my beloveds.

At the farmette, I do a quick tend to the flowers and I give a grateful nod to the lily ladies that so make my summer complete!

And then I return to printing out this, and washing that, and cooking supper and doing all that is quite normal except it's not so normal, because tomorrow, I'll be up up and away.
