TROUBLE IN THE TERRESTRIAL KINGDOM
(OR ...A SHORT REVIEW OF MY WEEK)
Gravity...the movie...a joy ride!! Trouble in the outer atmosphere! An intense and stunningly beautiful journey.
Our front yard looks like a bomb went off...as it indeed did...a bomb named Raymond. Raymond the well intentioned but inept landlord. My Builder could write a book about this mans ineptitude in home improvement projects. The front yard will never be the same. Never.
Money .. a quote from my last Sunday School lesson..."I dont like money actually, but it quiets my nerves." My nerves could stand some calming.
BEN HAD A COOKIE AT CHURCH!!! A cookie made with white flour. oh my
We made grand plans to start putting in some food storage again. There are lists. Im doing my part by collecting 5 gallon buckets from work. I have plenty of buckets...but nothing yet to put in them.
Logan had a 3.6 earthquake this week. I missed it. Anna...my worry wart...did not.
My Builders elbows and shoulders are complaining. Repetitive work is tough.
The government shut down has come and gone. I didnt notice a thing. Utah saved its own prime resources...and opened up our 4 National Parks, with our 'own money." When there's a will, there's a way. Maybe Parks should privatize?
Storm windows have gone up and new functioning weather stripping has been installed. (note above- about a bomb named Raymond) Battening down the hatches represents impending doom.
The last raspberries have been harvested from the garden.
So long to short sleeves..not because its getting cold...but because I now officially have saggy skin hanging from my arms. Im definitely struggling towards old age.
