Both are important. Don’t let it build up inside you about to explode. Think before you talk. Listen to what you are spewing. Listen to the responses. Think before responding…(repeat)
Again. And again. And again.
It’s difficult, but needed, to help mend broken things. Hope your Wednesday was better than mine. At least it’s now Thursday…new day, new beginning.
I made a dumb deal with my husband when the baby was born…I would change all the diapers but he has to deal with any dead animals, spiders, etc. I thought it was a great deal in the beginning but now my life is forever diaper based. 😓
He occasionally does it…begrudgingly, but he does.
I tried to make this task not so dreary; I put the trash can away from my changing station. Mostly I did that to keep the trash can away from my smart cookie, but I try and make the diapers in with a toss. However I’m realizing that if I miss I need to walk over and throw it away quickly, because I’ve caught my sneaky thing trying to grab them through the gate.🤢 Not something a baby should play with.
It used to be basketball…swish, swish. Now it’s diapers…smelly, smelly.
It being only me, the two puppies, and my hubby when he is not working; makes days here go by really quickly. It’s amazing how time flies in a small town where everything is super slow. A view from where I was walking one of the puppies the other day…
We’ve been having a lot of thunderstorms lately. We’ll be watching the television and an alert will interrupt the show saying beware severe thunderstorms in these areas. Last night it said there was a possibility of ping-pong sized hail for about two hours. We never experienced it though. Here’s a photo from the front of our house looking out at the rain. It is pretty amazing…
My job has been to make sure the puppies get exercise. Make sure they’re not fighting. Also I’m supposed to clean up the front and backyard, but the grass is not really growing in the places we put down seeds. Slowly everything will come together.
The fence is telling you where the nice grass is. Yeah, the green stuff is the neighbors yard.
We do have an apple tree in the backyard. It’s a crab apple tree, and it’s doing pretty well. I trimmed it a little bit ago and it seems to be thriving a little bit more. I tasted an apple a while ago it was not ripe, it tasted terrible. I did find out though that the puppies love to naw on them, just chew on them, but sometimes eat them.
All the fluff around the base of the tree comes from toys. You would be surprised that I’ve picked up fluff several times in the last two days. And sadly to say my slipper was also a victim. I will say this…I am happy I had the bright idea to only buy slippers worth $1.
So yeah my days are pretty much slow. I’m trying to do more things, but it just takes so much energy and I seem to not have enough energy. My puppies keep me on my toes all day. But thankfully my husband only has two more days this week and then he will have seven days off. His family is coming to visit, so that will be something new.
I just hope it’s not too long until I get to travel home and see my family. I miss them.
Since my hubby works long hours also along with a crazy schedule; I was getting lonely. I am a people person to a point. I don’t like quiet. I will contradict that statement: I like alone time but only so much.
So we decided to add to the family. Even though we have our first on the way; I needed some company sooner. We got two.
Her name is Pickles. She was super shy when we got her. She came from an animal shelter. It was a happy place for an energetic dog but not a shy one. She has grown to love us these past seven days. She now wants all the attention and she is a little bit of a trouble maker. The only sound she has made is small whimpers when she needs to go to the bathroom or some barking when she is defending her brother.
His name is Moose. He was also super shy. He is eight weeks old. He seems like he has never had a loving home. So we want to give him one; ten times over.
After we got them I was having severe allergies. I knew it was not because of them because it was a different allergy.
So it turns out down by the Yellowstone river there are hundreds of cotton wood trees. I have discovered I am super allergic to cotton trees blooming. It has passed though. Thankfully I moved up after the bloom; however, now I know May/ June will be difficult. The small town feel out ways the other difficulties we might face.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
(I had to check the calendar because here the days quickly morph into each other.)
Stories will continue,
When my mind is clear.
When that will be is near.
My husband has moved,
While I am still hear.
And my body is tired,
As we miss him so.
But all will be perfect.
Around Christmas time.
Have a blessed Friday 💕
“Love is a complicated thing”…that’s what most people say.
I don’t; fake love, forced love, or even a wanted love that God indicates it’s not the right time, of course, are complicated. Believing that love is there when it’s blatantly not, is always complicated. Or forced love…forced love is almost exactly like fake love but it feels worse. Because if it has to be forced, then occasionally the other person is not faithful, or they are manipulating you for their own gain. But the one that got me countless times was the wanted love…wanting, but God implying it was not the one for you or that it is not the time. Wanting something so badly and constantly being shut down or cut off, also, if you ignore the signs given to you, you result to either fake or forced.
But don’t fret; there are many roosters in the world, but to find one that is loyal you must have outside help. For me when the right rooster came along it was easy; we were perfect. It had its ups and downs but my rooster stayed with me through the toughest of times. God helped me find my rooster and without His help, I was only finding fake or manipulating ones.
Now my rooster and I have been married almost 6 months, and we are thinking about having some miniature ones. It won’t be until we are a little more settled, but soon, we will have baby chickens or roosters running around.❤️
I know this post is a little odd, but I wanted to tie in the daily prompt to my daily drawings…I won’t do this every day, but I thought it would be fun for a while.
The glorious day of Friday is here 😊❤️!!
Things that happen on there marvelous day of Friday: I get to work about 5 hours of overtime; I get to go to my mother’s house and putter; I get to go home early with my mister; we take a long beautiful, but exhausting hike; lastly, we don’t have to wake up early Saturday morning! Even though that just means waking up at 6:30, instead of 5:30…but it does make a difference.
Enjoy your spectacular Friday, because no matter what mine is going to be wonderful. More than likely, I’ll spend it sitting, sleeping, or slightly moving; but most definitely, with a lot of smiling. 😁
Some art to start the smiling process…
