My husband took our two sons on a short fishing trip to spend time with extended family from his first wife's side; ie their other brothers and sister.
For the first hour on my own; I just spaced out on the couch with no television listening to:
NOTHING (yes I said NOTHING)
OMG, what a beautiful sound.
Second hour, I felt guilty for lounging so I researched how to make my own dish soap since I know how to make my own laundry detergeant.
Then I listened to NOTHING AGAIN --- OMG I really needed to decompress.......
Third hour, I felt like the supreme heel of all heels and washed, dried, and put away dishes. (DREAMING OF A PORTABLE DISH WASHER; guess what. I now know how to make my own dish washing soap.)
Fourth hour, I spent gathering our little buddies inside their coop. There is always ONE VERY SMART ARSED HEN who decides to make a game of chases. So I spent twenty minutes trying to get her safely inside her coop to no avail.
NOTE HERE: She must have not seen the TWO GUINEAS HENS devoured last night by a large predator then picked clean by red necked vultures and caracaras. I hope she makes it to when hubby comes home because I could no longer see outside.
Fifth hour: Someone pinch me, is this what folks do with their free time at work in offices? I mean three years have gone by and I wonder if the blogging world really works at anything other than a SCREEN. I truly hope my boys and hubby are having fun because now, I am here with nothing to do but turn on the television or read. I feel like a woman of luxury whilst I type my mindless dribble.
SPECIAL NOTE: THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART GIL. I never understood how much I thrive on being around you and our sons. Much love!
Thoughts from inside the coop & rolling in silence.....
