I'm here today though to tell you that I'm going to have an important post on Monday about the care and workings of the most important part of your rural home....
Big surprise, but you'll have to wait.
In the meantime, I'll share some pictures from the week.
I wish I would have put something next to them for size comparison, but trust me, the one on the left looks like it was left by a Tyrannosaurus Rex and the one on the right looks like it fell out of a bubble gum machine.
I think my girls are nearing retirement, but I really don't want to do chicks again.
They're cute and all but kind of a pain in the a$$ if you ask me.
This is Astro and Olive.
They love each other.
Seriously love each other.
Astro, the white one bunched up that sheet and Olive came over and laid down on it and then Astro laid down beside her.
You can't tell in this picture, but Astro weighs eighteen pounds and Olive, much like myself, loves a man that makes her look thin ;)
This is my neighbor at the lake last weekend.
I stayed home and let him spend some time with his parents, but they sent me this photo.
It looks to me as though he's saying,
"I found the perfect spot
Grannyma Mrs. Parks, come on down!"
This is Wyatt at the park last week.
He saw this little squirrel run past so he took off after it,
(a behavior learned from one of the black and white dogs I assume)
caught it, and it stayed and played with him and his friends!
They all took pictures with it and it ran all over them and then it probably tried to nest and nap in Wyatt's moppy hair.
How often does that happen?
And finally, I saw this somewhere on line this week.
If you ever listen to my opinion on anything, it's this...
Being ok is fine.
The world needs more people who are ok.
We don't all need to be the best and have the best house and the best car and the best closet full of Pinterest crafts and the best dressed kids with the best grades eating the best farm to table freshly grown worlds best organic beets.
It's ok to have an ok Christmas wreath that you bought at the dollar store still hanging on your door in May and it's ok to serve frozen broccoli for dinner and it's ok if your dog poops on the floor sometimes.
Do you know why?
Because really, that's all of us.
We are all ok and just doing our best every day.
Just try not to cross that thin line into worst ;)
Happy Mothers Day Everyone
