It is dark. The day is coming to a close. It was a long weekend. It was a stressful weekend. I feel punched in the gut! I will NOT discuss further. Just know that we are all okay!
AS I PONDER....
Today I ponder the Kansas State Fair. I was going to let Harley take the day off school on Wednesday to attend the fair. But today she and her brother wanted to go. It was such a beautiful day out. I wasn't doing anything but catching up with some computer chores. So I dropped them off and they experienced the day together. As brother and sister. As friends. I'm glad they got to hang out together.
WHAT I AM LEARNING...
I keep learning over and over and over that I can't control everything. As much as I would like for everything to be perfect, it can't be. It will never be. Part of life is living and learning. Making mistakes and learning from them. Something we all need to do for ourselves. You can't protect the younger generation from mistakes. They have to make them and they have to live THEIR life. Even if I could tell them how to avoid some dumb and costly mistakes. They have to learn on their own. Oh well!!
I have not done much in the way of creating. Unless you want to count those No-Bake cookies I made on Friday which were devoured over the weekend.
WHAT I'M READING....
I am about half-way through Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. And I am getting reading to start listening to The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen.
WHAT I'M WATCHING...
I am really excited to start the premiere of Dancing With The Stars tomorrow evening.
WHAT I'M HEARING...
Right now I am listening to the dishwasher running in the kitchen. And on the TV is an episode of Brain Dead. A very bizarre show!
