Back from the great beyond and jet lagged to boot. I had such a nice time with my family. We just visited and ate good food. My sister is an amazing cook and hostess. If anyone needs to go to the D.C. Metro area and needs a room call sissie. I am serious. 4 star hotel serious. I had planned to post while I was there but with the time change (3 hours) which I finally sort of got used to, however by the time I was up and moving we would be off and running. Now I am back and fighting the other end of the battle.
It was a 12 hour trip sitting either in a subway or a plane or a car and my hips can't take long periods of time cramped up in a tight sitting position with my arthritis. I am pretty crippled up right now moving like a gimp but glad to be home I think? Hubby missed me and I missed him. The house and the yard are a wreck. The house keeper has not been here for 3 weeks and she is here today thank goodness. I was a little put out at the sight of the garden, hubs had really not done a thing and how can weeds grow that much in such a short time? I decided not to get angry after all it was cone picking season and he was working extra long hours.
I just took meds and gimped around all day yesterday. Put away and unpacked from the trip, straightened all the bathrooms and bedrooms as kids had been here sleeping, nothing too bad. I really cleaned the down stairs and still need to vacuum the basement. I just came to the realization that this place does better when I am here. I am needed!
Pulled all the green beans last night as they are over. Picked tons of overgrown cucumbers and seeded them and made a huge salad with the good part, then went onto the tomatoes and picked all that were ripe. Did some weeding around the eggplant and the peppers as they were not getting the light they need. I had to throw away about 10 huge yellow squash that could have served as homes for the homeless. Proof that Hubs never once bent over in the garden. The pond area is so over grown and the pump ( yes the new one) is not acting right. But I am too crippled right now to get down and try to see what is wrong. It has a years warranty so I am not worried. When I am up and around I will deal with it. Yesterday was just house, laundry, bread baking and picking old produce. The chickens had hid about 12 eggs under their coop, which I dug out and almost had to stay in the pen.; I got myself down and then hips would not let me get up. I had visions of being stuck in a chicken coop and hubs finding me. Not pretty.
By tonight my house will be ship shape and I will be back in full stride I think. I missed all of you. Mysti, Jane, Lena, Sluggy, Val, Sharon, all my pals,Judy where are you? Sissie and I talked a lot about you and we miss you.
I just realized that I had not posted my totals for July so look at the side bar! Yippee!
Have a great and productive day!
