This weekend... I went to a big city! As much as I've grown to love living out in the country, I sometimes long for the excitement, hustle, bustle and culture of big cities. And traffic. Am I crazy? I miss traffic!! It restores my faith in humanity every time somebody lets me into his lane.
But I am glad to be home now. And Howard, our rooster, crowed a welcoming (or perhaps an "I'm hungry") crow when we pulled into the driveway.
Some plans for the week: I need to get my house back under control. Being out of town 3 of the last four weeks, it's kind of gone by the wayside. How does it manage to get cluttered when we're not even home?? The remnants of the Christmas tree needles, strategically wedged into the carpet for maximum stabbing capabilities, have got to go, too.
Also on the agenda: turning some of our outrageous quantities of frozen beef into beef jerky.
If I find some time for myself, I hope to... learn more about Wordpress. It fascinates me. I would also like to get in a trip or two to the park by the river for a nice long walk.
Special prayer intentions for the week: For my husband's aunt who shattered her wrist and is having surgery. For the music for this youth Mass to come together as yet another two people have dropped out.
Something that makes me smile: the sun is shining again. And it's warm! And my husband is coming home in just two hours. Does life get any better? I submit that it does not.
Monday Musings are hosted at Patch O' Dirt Farm.
