Around Home

I stayed home for once and actually did something. Mom's room had turned into a catch-all the past few months and today I decided to do take action. Fixing Mom's room necessitated changing things up in our "empty" upstairs bedroom, and so things were kind of upside down. for a little while I wasn't sure quite how to get things back together again. Thankfully, Hannah was here to help me out a little (and add in some mess of her own as she cleaned out her closet). The job isn't totally done, I still have lots of stuff to go through and sort out, but it has been started and that is something.

Last night James and I took a walk in the orchard behind the house. (Sometimes we walk across the street instead.) It's been a while since I've walked past the pond and into the farther trees, but it was a good night for walking.My legs don't walk quite as fast as his do and sometimes I fall behind. He takes that opportunity to hide in the trees and make me wonder where he disappeared to. He tried to sneak up on me from behind but was not very successful because I have eyes in the back of my head.


  1. Doesn't every mother. Glad you had a chance for a walk. And there is sure a good feeling of accomplish a needed task like your mom's room. Nice to have a helper in Hannah too. Myk has a delivery by us tomorrow so he and the boys are coming by for a visit and lunch. Pulled pork sandwiches, cold slaw and pumpkin pie. I better get busy.

    1. Yes, every mom should have at least one pair of eyes in the back of her head, and she should be sure to use them regularly.
      Pulled pork sandwiches sound yummy. Maybe I'll do that next week.

    2. Remember Old Town Monrovia. Myk is delivering the Rubber Band Guns to the Toy Store next to the theater. Fun that you know what I'm talking about when I say Old Town Monrovia. Miss you.

    3. Yes, that was where we saw the fish that swallowed Jonah.
      I miss you too.
