Sunday Ramblings

Perhaps the title of this post should include Saturday happenings as well. I intended to post yesterday on what would have been the final day of August, but time as usual just got away from me. Not that I was overly busy, just putzing around seeing what trouble I could get into.

Yesterday morning the men in my life (Kris came home for a visit this long weekend) went fishing. I was told they would be back in time for lunch.... Lunch time rolled around and they were no where to be seen!!! The truck came rolling in at about 1:30 and the men headed to the back yard right away. A total give away. The fish started biting at about 11 so they stuck around and fished until the biting stopped.

This is what they came home with.

Caught their limit and were extremely happy about it. However both seemed to be a bit overcome with the heat and spent most of the remainder of the day sleeping or sticking to the air conditioned house.

While they were gone I got busy doing a few things that needed to be done.

Another 6 bags of tomatoes done for the freezer.

I am up to 18 bags now and hopefully will get a few more as those larger tomatoes ripen.

I also spent some time reorganizing my sewing/craft room trying to make things a bit easier to find. All my buttons were stored together in a large storage box. This made finding the proper button a bit of a conundrum. So along with storing all my cross stitch cloth (aida, linen, and afghan cloths) I decided it was time to do something about it.

All my buttons and snaps are now separated into colours which will make it much easier to locate what I need.... Now just have to organize my material a bit better and things will be almost back to normal in the room. Hopefully tomorrow I will have more pictures of the sewing/craft room to share with you all.

Today, well I have done a bit of reading, worked on my cross stitch project, started a loaf of bread (Kris wants to take one home so this one is his), read a book for a bit and played on the computer a great deal (Scrabble and Words With Friends are my new addictions as far as game playing).

The day has drifted by peacefully and I find myself thinking more and more of those who passed on, Harvey's parents, mine and our sweet Krista. I think it could be because we will be gone on Krista's birthday and the day we buried Dad. We have always visited Krista on her birthday so this year it is going to be strange not to take flowers out and talk to her for a bit. Our darling daughter would have been 35 this year and I often wonder what our lives would have been like had she not been taken from us so soon.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

  1. Jackie,

    I cannot imagine losing a child. I am sorry for your loss, no matter how many years have passed.

    I am sure if you talk to her on her birthday this year, she will be happy to see you two enjoying yourselves on her special day.
