The skies were clouding up early today as I finished chores and breakfast and decided I didn't feel too bad to take my morning walk.
I stood by the creek watching the waters rush by going on their way in the warm 60 degree temperatures.
I keep a plastic lawn chair wedged high in the branches of a tree just for days like this one. I can get such a calm peaceful feeling here as the sound of the water is almost like a sweet lullabye.
Then we were jarred back to reality by a stark reminder of why we never get in the creek bare footed as this broken bottle floats by.
Hope this wasn't used as a weapon somewhere up the creek !!!
Back at the house I had floors to clean and porches and steps to sweep before the rain gets here.
After lunch I went downstairs with the intention of sewing up some aprons I had cut out. But when I saw my new printer still sitting still in the box in my desk chair down there and the fact that I don't have any labels for my cakes I decided to hook it up to the computer down there.
Now I'm definitely not a geek when it comes to computer things but I do manage to muddle through this type thing. So after only 2 hours I had the old printer disconnected and the new one operational !!!
Sorry aprons you will have to wait for another day !!
With my nose actually dripping I don't think it was a good time to sew anyway.
I came upstairs and made a hot cup of tea and watched the gloomy sky darken and the rain begin.
As I slogged through mud again during chores I thanked God for all the rain he has provided.
I also thanked Him that we are not having a typical cold winter and all this was snow instead of rain.
This Purple Finch was taking cover and having supper at the same time.
This evening I felt pretty bad but I did paperwork along with some end of the month figures which are easy this month as things are so slow.
I also worked some on my picture project getting through my oldest son's graduation in May of 2000.
My nose is beginning to feel like a hot poker tonight and I have the bottle of Nyquil standing by. Hopefully that will help me get a good night's sleep.
Grateful to God for the blessings and love He pours out on His children each day.
Good Night and God Bless.
