QUITE DAY OF REFLECTION

Up till almost 2 am tracking down roof leaks. Didn't even hear the alarm this morning or turned it off in my sleep,which has happened before! #1 son came after a chair for his hunting blind and woke me up,he couldn't believe I was still in bed. The wind and rain overnight doesn't look like it damaged anything,all the tarps and plastic are still in place. Luckily I think we missed the heavy rain but it's not over yet!
Today is a dreary,cool,misting rain kind of day.I have iced all 18 caramel cakes this morning and am playing with g-son for a a while.Daughter came in from work and started baking,#1 son came after g-son and left to meet d-in-love for supper.There has been nothing going on around here today at all, it's really strange,I guess because of all the stuff that's been filling everyday for a while it seems extra quite today. I am looking forward to all this construction coming to an end,so I can get on with some projects I want to do around here and life for us can kinda get back to normal,I say kinda because it's hard to remember what normal is,it's been a long time since we haven't had some kind of work going on.
With all the rain the cabin fever of winter is coming early this year,when I get that yuck feeling I always look at summer photos..There will surely be more days with lots of pics before this winter is over.
Tonight was kind of hectic with daughter and I getting ready for market .I had to bag all my Avon orders,stamp my books, pay bills and do weekly business paperwork. I boxed 10 cakes for orders tomorrow,finished icing chocolate and coconuts, and, and, I'm so confused I don't even know what else I have to do.Sis-in-law call to get a menu together for Saturday night's Thanksgiving family supper but I told her to call back tomorrow. When I get in a whirlwind getting everything done I can't handle telephone calls from people who sound so relaxed and like they have nothing to do.It's nothing against whoever is calling it's just not a good time for me and with my mind going in all different directions I wouldn't remember talking anyway. It is midnight and I'm relaxing a few minutes before I get in bed.
I get frustrated with all I have to do sometimes,but I thank the Lord that I'm able to do all that I do and I pray for forgiveness during these times. Good Night.

I love the summer photos you shared - what a cutie gs is enjoying a cool dip in the pool with the dog! I think any time there's a project going on with remodeling etc., it makes us feel a little overwhelmed. Hope everything settles down soon for you. Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.
