If this post actually appears, it will be my last.
Until mid-September, that is.
I had ideas about what to say, here, but the skies are not friendly in the Deep South.
The local librarian tells me, “The clouds are crowded.” It’s her attempt at humor AND at explaining why even her computers are dysfunctional.
We keep getting the “can’t” page.
So the Internet has fallen down and scraped it’s knee and all it can do is boo hoo. Okay.
We’ll be totally busy here with our son’s wedding. That is a very good thing.
It’s finally raining on our world. That is a very good thing, too.
I have counseling notes to consolidate and a paper to compose — two more very good things.
All my floors are needing a good sweeping. It is a very good thing to have floors — many people in this world still do not.
The dryer is done. Very good on two counts: we now can put on socks and the electricity meter has stopped before going into orbit.
I left my coffee mug by the stove and must get out of this seat for the next sip — glad I can walk, glad God made coffee.
See ya in two weeks or so.
Or sooner, if the weekly photo challenge is too tempting.

I like silver-lining type people like you 🙂
Enjoy the wedding and the break.
Aw-w-w — !
Thanks so much, Tilly!
When I was a child, we played in a dirt-floor barn and it would impress me about having a floor and how some did not. It made me think.
Nowadays, kids play with electrogadgets. Hmm. They, too, are learning to think.
Enjoy the wedding and we’ll miss your wisdom!
Thanks so much for your kind words, Dear Lady!
At least I will not have to mow. Until I return! 😀
I’ll miss you while you’re gone! Congrats on celebrating a wedding – Praying the Lord’s hand is on everyone involved, and that his grace abounds to all of you. Especially your son and his soon-to-be bride. 🙂
You are so kind! Thanks for the blessings! They are so happy! 🙂
See you soon 🙂
In two weeks! 😉
Gratitude is what gets us through, isn’t it? And knowing who to thank!
YES! I thank the Lord and His people who walk in His love, like you. 🙂
I pray all of you have a blessed time. Wow, it’s already here!
My sentiments exactly! Wow. It’s already here. AND THE LAST ONE! (Unless the daughter ever finds a guy who reminds her of her brothers!) 😉
I agree with everyone. I will certainly miss you. Praying that all goes well.
And I certainly thank you! ❤
as always, love your outlook. as always, i wish you love and joy and only enough frustration to keep you focused ;-). have a wonderful time with the wedding. love you my twin
Ha! You wish me frustration?! Hahaha! I love it. Thanks! ❤ And I think the wedding will go fine. Just have to see to believe, ya know? 😉
Hope all things go well for you for the next couple of weeks 🙂
Thanks so much, Sans. I’ve been neglecting, you, I know, to my detriment, I am sure. But, hey! I finally nailed my son down on WHAT kind of groom’s cake he wants. Now, that is progress. 😉 I feel so elated I just had to share!
Do you like carrot cake? That’s a spice cake with grated carrot in it, a bit like banana or applesauce cake. I make a version called “Fully Loaded Carrot Cake” that has coconut, pineapple, raisins, and pecans in it, also. Mmm. And cream cheese frosting, which is just powdered sugar and cream cheese blended together. Anyway, that is what he has chosen, so must go shopping tomorrow!
sounds good! I had one layer of chocolate cake for my wedding – the other two the traditional fruit (that I don’t like)
I know fruitcake is supposed to be traditional, but I have never seen it in a bride’s cake, to this day. Hmm. I happen to love it and am always disappointed. Mass-produced, chemical-laden white cake is what I usually find. Ah well. We’ll have far too much cake, I’m told — chocolate with peanut butter frositng, white with chocolate cream filling, plain white bride’s cake, and the carrot-spice I mentioned — come on by and help us eat some of it! 😉
I hope you have a restful break and look forward to seeing you back! By the way, thank you for the reminders on what we should be thankful for 😉 ! There is so much that we take for granted, like coffee and floors. . . heck, even the air we breathe! Sometimes a little reminder is such a blessing!
Hellooo! Not too restful, yet, but lots and lots and lots and lots of good things gonig on.
Breathing! Yes! Even hyperventillating! 😀
We fournd WHERE the post office lost the deposit money for the special events place. Yay! I got the groom’s cake made last night and it did not run over the pan and it DID come out after cooling Yay! Found wedding wrapping paper — scarce commodity in this messed up society. Food guy is wonderful, wonderful. He asked me how I wanted the green bean amadin made so I said, “Oh you know, brown almonds and throw in some onion, then green beans.” He said, “Oh, of course!” Such a relief to find someone like him. He just is so kind, saying, “It’s the way we eat. It’s fun.” And yes, it is. He makes it so. So far. 😉
I just have to overtalk. Sighs.
Thanks for your kind words. If I remember to bring along my good shoes, I shall be happy! 😀
