Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Batching it for 2 weeks...
Jim left late this morning on a two-week trek to Colorado to pick up his Mom and her golden-Dolly, and bring them both east. They'll stop at White Pines State Park, and visit family and friends near Chicago, before returning here at the end of the month.
We literally cleaned up the rv, and filled it back up again when we got home for this western trip.
The corgi kids and I spent the day working outside, rolling in the grass, and enjoying the sunshine. (Ok, it was NOT me rolling...)I spray painted birdhouses and old chairs getting them garden ready, and breathed in enough fumes to totally congest me.
Did some mulching, moved some fieldstones, and hopefully, tomorrow will plant some seeds. My brother told me to get a concrete mixing tub (it's rectangular in shape, made of heavy plastic and has a flat bottom with side about 8-9 inches high) to plant my veggie garden in, so off to Menard's or Lowe's we will go.
This will be a good time to get many projects done...without any distraction!
Josh will come over to carry things for his mama as needed. Wish we could paint a couple of rooms as well, but that, just may be a little too optimistic and over zealous! Anyway...no matter what we accomplish in that time frame, it will all help.
Also, will get together with as many galpals as possible for a little menopausal therapy over coffee and conversation! We ALL know how important that sort of thing is when fellas aren't around!
