GRRRRRR !!!!! Got this day off to a late start by making a phone call first that I thought would only take a minute. This retirement stuff for hubbie is way too complicated. It's almost as if they are nit picking every little thing to find a reason to deny things ??? When I sent in a form for secondary beneficiaries I put all three of the kids but that won't work. So I tried to change it online and it wouldn't let me, thus the phone call but guess what it still didn't get changed but after an hour I decided to try again later !!!
Now I 'm out doing the chores late and then after taking a couple more cake order calls it is 10:00 and I'm starting to get a headache because I haven't even had breakfast.After finally finishing breakfast I decided to take a walk anyway to calm my nerves. And it worked as this is my happy place , outside communing with God's wonderful creations. Mama duck walks her babies through the Buttercups.
Back inside I decided to get my baking for the day started. I didn't have much until the 2 orders called in earlier today. I baked 6 caramel, 2 chocolate, 1 coconut, 2 pound and 1 blackberry wine before having a late lunch to go with my late breakfast.
The sun was bright and the temp was 84 but my body felt the need for some relaxing warm sunshine.
It didn't take long to satisfy that need in the "hot" sunshine but it gave me a chance to recharge a little before housecleaning began.
I was just mopping myself out the back door when hubbie got in from work so we sat out in the covered patio and enjoyed a nice breeze until the floors dried.
We watched the news and then did chores. I had a salad for supper and then did weekly paperwork and paid bills.
We watched Survivor on TV then I finished out the night icing cakes and getting things ready for market.
May 1987 was a fun month with these three littles, ages 5, 4, 2 , we definitely had our hands and hearts full.
We always loved to go to the beach before the crowds and it was so much cheaper to go before the season. We stayed in a hotel called The Reef.
Thanking God each time I post these past memories that He blessed me with so many blessings along the way and took care of my family as only He could do.
God Bless and Good Night
