Humping Day!

Morning ya’ll!

I have to say, I hate hate hate feeling less than…and yesterday I felt bad ALL. DAY. LONG. It doesn’t happen that often, and the majority of the time I kept asking myself in the back of my head, are you for real? are you faking it? are you just tired and lazy? nope. Something was certainly amiss at the Circle K…or my stomach as it were. Bleagh. But today is a brand new day so off we go!

Dad arrived for an overnight and I was zero company. It’s been raining the last two or three days and we’ve had some crazy flooding around here. I actually have to go check on the frontier tonight after work. The creek was out of it’s banks and up into the vineyard higher than it was last year, and Bonusmom is in Nebraska. anyways, the weather has put me IN THE MOOD. And it’s early this year. but it’s definitely THE MOOD.

That mood that usually comes along the middle of October around Gert’s birthday. The mood that makes me start nesting, lighting candles, making big pots of aromatic yummy on the stove filling the house will smells of a home. Football. Long sleeves. Cuddling on the couch with a blankie. All of it.

And it hit yesterday amidst the funk. I gathered enough strength and went to get provisions for the week and came home and made a big pot of vegetable beef stew. Man. I love it. Love the way it smells. Made a pan of cornbread. And while it sucked that I really couldn’t eat much, or taste much, it made me happy. Dad said it was good. I’ll eat more tonight! I wish you were here to help me because we all know I cook for a minimum of 6 people. At all times. it’s how I learned and have never been able to break the habit.

The Olympics seem to be waning for me, though I was soooooo excited for our little girl gymnasts and Jonathan Hortan (who’s from OKLAHOMA/OU by the way) for his silver. Good stuff last night.

I have class this morning then working. I have no idea what my books look like, hopefully with yesterday being rescheduled it will be full thru the week! We had big weekend plans to float, but with the weather and lower temps have decided to postpone that trip. Kind of feels good to not have a bunch of obligations this week! I was going to go see Richard III at Shakespeare in the Park on Friday…again we’ll see about the weather.

Bla bla bla I love you. Huzzuah and Happy Humping Day!

    That mood hit me yesterday, too!!!
    I was lamenting that I couldn’t quite wear my corduroy skirt yesterday and when I got home I made a big pot of Italian wedding soup (w/ turkey sausage meatballs and lots of zucchini). Yum!
    Let’s go Autumn!
