My love for quiet Friday mornings continues. Last week my husband informed me with glee that he did not have to go into work until late Friday morning, just in time for me to pick up Little Buddy from school. He could not quite understand my slight resistance at being happy for him. My Friday mornings are my treasured time. They are my quiet time that prepares me for a weekend full of men, little boys and teenagers who are almost men. It is my time to regroup from a busy work week full of driving, entertaining children, and taking Little One where he needs to be. There is lots and lots of testosterone around me, even my beautiful boy Max is male. As I have mentioned before that as I age, I need time alone to recharge and regroup, we all do. I missed out on my precious time last week I was not going to miss out on it today.
I drove to the new Whole Foods Market that has just opened up near me. Before this store opened we had to drive to Tampa to go to the store. We live in a busy area but we are so behind the times. No Whole Foods up until now, no Trader Joe's, we aren't hip and cool like so many other areas of the country. I walked around the store savoring the beauty of everything there. I bought a few things, nothing too crazy as they do not call the store, "Whole Paycheck" for nothing. I also purchased a few bars of soap to give away with the dishcloths, it was just fun to walk around at my own pace.
When I got home I went out side in the steamy morning and had another walk. We have had lots and lots of rain lately, my flowers are responding to the moisture and the slightly less intense heat. It is supposed to be only in the mid 80's tomorrow, I am looking forward to the change.
My rose tree is as happy as can be with the extra rain and cooler temps. I have tiny little roses everywhere.
The deer have been at it again trying to scratch off their antlers on my poor little pine tree. They had knocked down all my protective devices, I think I need to get a fence around this tree, I am not sure it can be saved. The other little pine tree I had died a miserable, slow death.
The swamp/woods behind my house is full of water. We have so many mosquitoes out in the evening it is crazy. Little Buddy had 7 bites on him the other day. I am not sure if he got them at school or if a mosquito bit him while he was sleeping here at the house. All I know is if I was a mosquito I would bite him because he looks pretty yummy.
Five more dishcloths have been added to my pile. I now have 13 crocheted flower dishcloths and 15 knitted ones. I have more to go but am not stressed about it. I am way ahead of the game right now as far as preparation for Christmas. I might even take a break and start something new this weekend.
This weekend I intend to get the Halloween decorations out, and just relax. I swear I am getting so boring (oops, I am not supposed to say that again am I?) I like to stay close to home and not even get in my car if that is possible. Crochet when I can, read a bit before bed, catch up on blogs, take Little Buddy out for a ride on his bike or for a swing on his swing set, watch a bit of football and recharge before another busy week.
Thank you so much for your positive comments about Little Buddy's accomplishments. I am so glad you are there for me to share all of this with. He needs all the prayers and positive thoughts he can get to get him to the place where he is functioning all on his own. Isn't it fun to see him grow and flourish?
Hope you have a beautiful weekend whatever your plans.
