Thursday, Another funeral
Took care of the babies yesterday and it was fun, as they are so cute and full of life. I am also getting great enjoyment out of my puppy. He never fails to bring a smile to my face.
I did no sewing or ironing yesterday but I will get things done today and I also have another rehearsal this afternoon at 3:30. Hope the kids come back with a little more oomph today as it was so hot yesterday and they were really lagging.
I am doing a stir fry for dinner this evening trying to use up the chicken from mom's funeral and the veggies from the garden. We have bag after bag of frozen chicken in the freezer to use. Thank goodness I like chicken and it can be used so many ways.
I am going to make a couple of pans of enchiladas this weekend to freeze and maybe do up a batch of spaghetti sauce if it is not to hot. I need to make up some lasagnas as I have all the cheese and it is taking up room in the fridge. I feel like baking something ,but baking with out mom seems so sad right now. We will see.
Mentally I am going through my house room by room and getting rid of things. I am packing things up in boxes in my mind. Trying to get rid of as much clutter as possible. Everyday I physically a do a little something. Yesterday it was a cupboard in the kitchen that was full of things we never use. I have 4 items that will put in a sale or given to good will the rest was just stuff that could be tossed. I have several places in the house like this and it is helping me feel better to let go.
Why do we hold onto things we do not use? Why do we accumulate things? Did this used to make me feel better? Because now it just feels like a big waste and a burden.
I had better get busy, there are things to do around here.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
