I have learned quite a few lessons over the past couple of weeks and not all of them have been pretty. The important part is that I learned from them.Onward and upward is all I can hope for…
Yesterday I attended a soap making class at the farm where I buy my eggs. It was more of a tutorial but that’s okay…it was worth the $10.00 to be able to ask questions. I’m afraid of the lye, just as she was. I need to get over it and do it once and then I should be fine. I just need to get over that fear. My grandmother told me once, “don’t be afraid of it, just respect it.” I get it…be careful. I will add this to my Summer projects.
The Girl and I went KB’s for her daughter’s graduation party last night. I have a lot to say on that subject but no worries…you are safe from my tangent. I have already said these things to her daughter. I went because I love my friend and her daughter but I refused to give her money for having a diploma. I opted to give her an early birthday present instead. She really wanted the tarot cards anyway.
I had a nice visit with KB’s parents, her younger brother and his wife. KB’s mom and brother both referred to the time when I got stuck going up the hill? Her mom said “I think of you every time I drive it.” I have no recollection of this event? That 76′ cougar had a v8 so either I wasn’t driving fast enough (most likely) or the roads were really bad? I honestly don’t remember?
This morning I woke up knowing I would be saying goodbye to one of my birds. It wasn’t as hard as saying goodbye to my beloved rhode island red but it wasn’t fun. At least he is going to a good home. Now we need to find a hatchery to get two more chicks stat. Two isn’t enough, I was planning on four.
The Girl and I spent a big chunk of the day in the neighbor’s pool, which is the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I needed the distraction/relaxation to recharge for the week ahead….Zia
