I know George must’ve been surprised at my sudden jump to go outside and catch the sunset. We were watching Bloodline and it was really good. But I saw the “glow” coming through the house and I knew it would be a nice one. Anytime the sun shines through with storm cloud remnants left behind it is always beautiful.
I had some company “Little Bit” who loved having me out there and he got some extra attention.
Sitting out there has been nice at sunset. Don’t do it every night, but here and there.
George came out and while I was watching the sunset, he saw there were deer on the other side. They almost want to come up to you but the dogs scare them away.
The sun scattered light about the sky and dispersed its light to the clouds opposite the sunset. The main show was not where the sun was going down but the reflection of light through the atmosphere.
Imagine how much better this would be with the new camera.
We had another good weekend day yesterday. However, the night before storms rolled through and I was awake. I think it’s a new fear that the big tall tree behind us will fall and it will fall on our bedroom if it comes that direction. With all the tree falls this year, it’s made me nervous. And a year like 2020 has been – you kinda start to think, “yeah that tree’ll fall this year”. I mean like someone said – “it wouldn’t surprise me if a volcano rose up in the back yard and started to blow lava” at this point. So point made, I decided to get up and see how bad the storm was. Maisy got up too so I took her out real quick before the main part got to us.
Turns out it was a slow mover. I grabbed a blanket and tried to just sleep on the sofa. I was awake though and it was hard to go back to sleep. About the time I did, the big part of the storm came through with loud thunder and a lot of lightning. Maisy was so scared. The wind was not bad and we didn’t have anything as a warning – other than Significant Weather warning. It wasn’t severe. But Maisy was snuggling with me and I put her under the blanket and hugged her. I secretly like those moments as she is not normally a lap dog – she wants to be with you but she likes her space. She gets hot really easy. So I hugged her and as the storm let up and scooted back over to her spot. Then we both fell into deeper sleep and George got up. He was not wanting to wake us up to start the coffee pot I guess and sat in the living room and read. I was in the den. I woke up a little before I was ready but I felt reseted enough and got up.
I started the coffee and rebooted the laundry and watched some of my shows on YouTube. George fixed us leftover porkchops along with some of Houston’s homemade biscuits. He ate his porkchops on the biscuits. I ate mine with a fork and put molasses and butter on my biscuits. MMMMMMM.
I knew better though than to keep sitting there. I’d watch YouTubers all day long. So I got up and began moving toward getting things done for the work week. I actually made a list on Evernote on my Mac so I can keep focused on the weekends. So I don’t “hobby” all weekend and actually get important things done. Here’s my reminders:
(Sorry it isn’t copying and pasting in list form and I don’t have time to put it that way but you get the idea)
___Ironing ___Clothes picked for next week ___Grocery Run ___Food for Next week for Work? ___Vitamins for Next Week ___”That Wellness Company” Orders __ Amazon Orders ___Target Orders ___Bless the House (Clean) ___Special Weekend Cleaning/Household Projects ___Looking Ahead on the Calendar ___Reorg To Do List ___Planning Time ___Special Personal Projects ___App Updates ___Check/Delete Emails ___Video Creations ___Delete Unused Photos & Set Favorites ___Watch my shows, read, create, have fun!
So I did a lot of those things yesterday (and the day before).
George fixed the most awesome roast for dinner. It was excellent – made in the Instant Pot.
oh and is it me or does the western US look like it’s complete on fire?
We enjoyed Bloodline. I think we are about half way through what is on Netflix. We are half way through season 2. We can hardly watch anything else because we are trying to see what is going to happen next.
One thing I’m seeing on this show is how one person can totally destroy a whole family. I know it’s fiction but I can see how it happens.
Before I knew it, our day was gone and it’s the work week again.
That loyal Maisy. She is just always there for me and by my side. I thank God for her every night. God knew I needed her and she needed me and He got us together. Same thing with Roger, for George.
I sing to Maisy almost every night in the sweetest voice tone I can manage.
“I love my Little Maisy Girl, I love my Little Maisy Girl”
“She’s a sweet little girl and I love her!”
“I love my Little Maisy Girl”.
Very simple, to the point and then we both fall asleep. She also knows the words “Let’s go Seepy”. And she scoots down to the end of the bed when I finish my song, give her a little hug and a kiss on the forehead and say “Let’s go seepy”.
Around here, the animals get better treatment than adults, lol!
And so the time has come for me to skidattle to work. Another work week is upon us.
