Saturday, I got me some SUN!

     Yes it was sunny and warm here today from about 11:00 until 3:00 in the afternoon.  Even though I had plenty to do downstairs and a lot of house work and yard work I ignored all and sat in the sun.

     Mom was  not doing as well as I had hoped today.  She was really unstable and shaky and she wanted some toast in bed.  I went up to make it and the sun was so bright and warm, I ran downstairs and started to pull her clothes together. I reminded her that we had cookies to bake and that perked her up.  She does better if she has a plan for the day and something to do and look forward to. So we had a late breakfast on the deck in the warm sunlight.  WW Toast with butter and home made huckleberry jam.  We also had some of mom's banana bread.

     I then ran up an down stairs waiting on customers as they came.  I rolled out all the shamrock cookies with the back door open.  Lil Sis came over a got mom and I went back out on the deck and sat with my eyes closed in the sun for about an hour and a half.  I actually napped a little.  I realized I could have been doing some yard work but it was so nice to just sit and soak.

   About 3 another customer came and the sun was behind the clouds and it was getting chilly.  I worked a little in the shop, had a bride in at 4 and then I laid down on the couch and slept through the news. Then Hub's and I went to Arby's for their salad bar. I would have preferred to stay home but Hub's and I have not been out to eat in 2 months.  I am really trying to cut back on this and I think he is starting to notice.  Anyway it was nice and only cost $15.65.  Still think of all the salad fixings I could have gotten for that.

     I came home and whipped together a Celtic belt and bow tie for one of the boys. Then I sewed a little more and went upstairs and frosted 74 green shamrock cookies.  Did a 3 mile walk at home video and cleaned up the disaster kitchen.  Since I have an early morning rehearsal at the theater tomorrow I think I had better go to bed.  

Wish me Luck!



  1. I am more than impressed! It seems you get more done in 2 hours than I do all week.
    Thankfully you took a little time to sun soak. That is so good for the soul.

  2. Best wishes..
    SO proud you were able to rest in the sunshine..[Sometimes, we just HAVE to let the work go, and rest. Our bodies need it..
    Hope you all have a blessed weekend.

  3. I know... I love it when it is sunny. I'm gonna go to a park later today and take my Bible and read.

  4. A good soak in the sun, a nap, and a salad out would work wonders for me. Maybe you are refueled for a bit. I didn't know Arby had a salad bar.

  5. Well I know where the clouds and snow were! I drove through a blizzard to a protest only for it to be cancelled due to the weather once I arrived :( Waste of gas. I long for the day I can sit outside and feel the sun on my face :) I'm glad you made the most of it!

    1. I have to tell you it was wonderful. Yours is coming soon.
