Our week was a blend of busy and hectic and feeling the push and pull of things that needed done all at once. Life has its times like that and June often is that way around here! This week may be a lot the same. The wheat is ready to cut and there were combines in the fields this weekend. So hello Monday and hello to harvest on the horizon for us!
Hello muddy boots and hello to lots of irrigation system checking and working on systems that were getting stuck. Hello to hauling gyp and hello to a load of rock for our driveway. Hello to working on planter. Hello to the pressure of getting milo planted. Hello to wind. Wind, wind and more wind. IT IS STILL BLOWING. Hello to getting ready for harvest. Sometimes there are too many things and not enough time.
Hello to trying this recipe for Giant Broo-kies. Brownies/chocolate chip cookie bars. Chocolate lover’s cookie for sure! Hello to a Lilla Rose giveaway over here! Don’t miss it! Hello to me winning a giveaway! Hooray! I won some Good Cook Keepers. It will be fun to try them.
Hello salad! Hello to riding along when my man hauled gyp and stopping in to get disposable cups for fruit cups. Hooray! I was almost out of them and it is frozen fruit cup time of year. Hello to laughing at juggling to fit 1000 styrofoam cups into a daycab Peterbilt. It can be done. You just have to take them out of the box they came in and lay all the sleeves of cups behind your seats. Then break the box down and you are good to go!!! My handy tip for the week. I’m sure many people have been contemplating on this problem.
Hello cozy slipper socks! My girl made these with Grandma, while she was in Ohio. Hello to the kiddos stacking up pavers and Renae pinching her finger and getting a blood blister. Hello to her poor fingers getting dried out like they seem to do every summer. I really wonder why they do. Hello to giving away three kittens and promptly finding four more. We are abundantly blessed with kittens this year. We had one mama who we were pretty sure had kittens, but we didn’t know where. My kiddos were thrilled to find them. They are quite adorable, even though it means that our numbers didn’t really decrease after all. Hello to R&T going to help Grandma do some outside stuff and some inside rearranging. Hello to ordering coin collecting books. Pennies for Tucker and state and national parks quarters for Renae. They have been keeping an eye out and sorting through coins we had. This is making a fun project for them. I’m fascinated too. I’ve always thought coins were kind of interesting.
Hello to working on the new Which Way USA books that arrived! Hello to these fun faces printables! My kiddos had fun drawing “people”.
Hello to washing pick-ups for Dad. Hello to some cleaning at a friend’s house and hello to hunting checkbook. Hello to a windy Thursday and jeans blowing off the line. Hello to tired of wind. Go away now. 🙂 Hello to systems, systems, systems. Wind and systems. I have to keep repeating it because the week was quite full of both. Hello to new flexis! Hello to prayers for a friend in Ohio, who was in the hospital recovering from being burnt. Hello to thankfulness for God’s protection and safety. And hello to, though we were crazy busy all week, we could be busy and go about and do our stuff.
Hello wraps, and cookies, and serving lunch to all the help and wedding party before my friend’s daughter’s wedding. It was fun. Another big and busy day! I was tired that evening and I hadn’t even been doing wedding preparations for a few months! My friend had to be exhausted.
Hello to my husband coming home to take a shower for the wedding, only to discover we had no water. Hello to the water well man coming to work on it while we were at the wedding. Till I got home in the evening it was all fixed. I missed the whole thing. It was a good day to be gone! Running water is such a blessing. It’s so wonderful to come home from a big day and take a hot, leisurely shower.
Hello darling wedding cake!
So good-bye to last week and hello to this week! I don’t think it’s going to slow down.
Hello to this verse running through our minds~good words for busy days!
