I love where I live for many reasons, not the least of which is the house full of crazy, fun other women in my family. Friday evening we sat on the front steps watching neighborhood fire works, then moved onto the deck. It turned into karaoke until 2 am when we all went to bed. My family is so much fun.
Another reason I love it here is the park like atmosphere. It is so peaceful to sit on the deck and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee. There are woods behind us and therefore we have plenty of deer that come through. I went to let the dog out that next morning and found this doe laying between the trees, near the deck, enjoying the sunshine. Later that afternoon a fawn came prancing through the backyard. They are beautiful creatures, dumb as bricks, but quite the sight. I admit, I wouldn’t mind having her in the freezer come hunting season. I don’t hunt but both of my kids do and I am always happy to take some venison off their hands.
It was a great message in church this morning, which just topped off the weekend. I have trust issues with God, I see that after today. I need to ask Him to help me with that. I also signed up for the running group at church, but with the walkers. I need to start walking then I can run. I also ordered the 24 Day Challenge from Advocare (did I mention I sell for them too? – Direct sales junkie! I might need and intervention). I have to get serious before I end up with health issues so now is the best time and they say the best exercise is the one you will do. Well that would be walking! Eventually running.
I will be returning to writing something of substance this week. Need to learn to block my writing time and then actually sit down and do it. That and everything else I need to do.
