I'm tired....I wonder how many times Joe hears that phrase coming from my mouth? Today, I do have reason to be tired....I was awake before dawn..got dressed,.got the laundry started, made coffee, and then went out on the front porch and put the cushions on the chairs and after feeding the birds...I sat down. We had plans to get the carpets cleaned today, so I thought it best to get out of the way...what could I do? I spotted some weeds growing around the Ash tree and then decided to go around the house and do some weeding....all the way around the house. The carpet man was here for quite a while...and I got a lot of weeding done. I plant things pretty close, so there aren't many weeds in the garden area...just that stuff that grows in the front...llike grass creeping in.
Now I'm going to get all serious for a paragraph...It might be sad to read, but I want to put it here.
As I was weeding around the house this morning, thoughts of Tim came to mind. He was such a sweet, loving boy when he was growing up. I miss my phone calls especially...he always had a funny thing to say we joked a lot with each other. You know, we started something in our family years ago. I think that it was my daughter who started it. When she was living in Texas...she started ending our phone conversations with..."I love you, Mom." I started telling all my kids that, whenever we talked on the phone or saw each other...then I would hug each of them.Now it continues with my grand kids. I think it is so important to let people know how you feel about them and remind them often. You never know when it will be the last time you talk to or see each other. That's the last thing that Tim and I said to each other....and I have that good memory to last forever.
Well, as I said when I began...I'm tired, but it's a good tired. I accomplished so much this morning...I think that I said it before...this year I have more get up and go. It seems my energy is back. Maybe changing to a healthier diet, drinking lots of water, and limiting my sweets has something to do with it; What ever it is...I'm glad my old self is back.
