Bitsy decided at 5:30 this morning she had slept plenty long enough, thank you. So while her dad was getting ready to go freeze his hiney off in a tree stand, she was stationed at the back door supervising his progress.
So far none of the other FarmHands have stirred. I know this peace is short lived, but I am praying it's sustained through our day today. Yesterday, not so much.
My home is clean. My muscles ache from the process, but I am happy. A roast is simmering away in my crock-pot soon to be accompanied by an onion, some carrots, and a few potatoes. Laundry needs to be started. The dogs bedding washed.
At some point today my Aunt Anita/Silverbelle & my Uncle Greenteeth will be at my house as will the Queen Mother (she's on her way home following a funeral). Thanksgiving is nearly here which means a trip to Grandma M&M's, good food, and seeing lots & lots of folks I love...and getting to meet Inkling's newest nephew for the first time.
Things are looking up & I am resolved to keep that in mind today.
