Yesterday was a beautiful day here. I walked the gravel road by our house. It has several steep hills and I was panting by the time I got back home. Now if I can just make myself continue the exercise.
After I recovered from my much needed exercise, I headed into work at church for awhile. For many years Mom and dad and mom's brothers and sisters have had a tradition of meeting at McDonald's at 3:00 every day for coffee and fun. Dad has still been trying to take mom but it is too much for him to handle her by himself. So, I headed into town in time to go to McDonalds. Those old people sure keep Mac's hopping! Then back to their house where I fixed supper for them . I've found that it is the little things, like cooking for them, that seems to relieve dad a lot.
Little did I know that when I got back hom, I would find Jim in the yard clearing limbs and trees from last winter's ice storm. So, Jim manned the chain saw and I hauled wood for a couple of hours. After we were done I looked around me and sighed. I couldn't tell we had made any progress at all. It will take weeks of that kind of work to get things cleaned up. Oh well, one step at a time.
By the time I fixed our supper, I was almost (but not quite) too tired to eat. Jim and I have an agreement that I cook and he cleans up. I didn't do another darn thing the rest of the night!
This morning I am sore as the dickens from all the things I did yesterday. But it is a good sore. We are supposed to get rain today and tomorrow and then it should be a gorgeous weekend. I can handle a forecast like that. I'm planning on watching Austin (3) and Dakota (5) Friday night and Saturday so that Julie can have a much needed night off from her day to day mothering.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
