Wow, did I let time get away from me or what? It’s been about a month since my last post. This adulting thing is really cutting into my extracurricular activities! It has been a busy month and I don’t even know where to start. I suppose I could start with an explanation of this week’s title. I will be the first to admit that I lack in the participation department of going to church. I did not grow up in church and my both sides of my family were complete opposites, so I guess you could say I fell somewhere in between. I may not get my attendance in at church, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have faith or believe. In fact, I feel at most peace when I am outside wandering around in nature, and if you don’t believe then I don’t know what could change your mind. We are so busy (including me) making a living that we forget to slow down & make a life. This past month has been crazy busy and there hasn’t been a lot of down time to unwind, but that’s when you make the most of the time you have. A few weeks back we got some pretty substantial rainfall and strong enough storms to knock the power out for several hours.
That might drag some down, but remember without the rain, there is no rainbow!
I am also happy to announce I finally got another project done. I had started a project & it wasn’t until Memorial Day came creeping up me that I had to get it done. I drug some old metal out of the scrap pile and I made them into flowers to place on my dad’s grave. I am happy with how they turned out and I know he would’ve loved them being a junker himself. I used some pretty thick metal so they should/better hold up.
Talking flowers, the wildflowers around here are blooming and I have been taking advantage of that. So if you see a crazy lady braking and jumping into a ditch to pick flowers, that’s probably me, so please don’t run me over.
Around the lake has been busy. We had a houseful of teenagers a few weekends back and I think I am still re-cooperating. The hubs hung my outside party lights around our fire pit and it’s the go to place to chill. Of course the s’mores are a bonus and that night-time view…WOW…believe folks…
With the amount of rainfall the lake has been up pretty high which made it somewhat challenging to put the boat in and out, but that didn’t stop us from boating. We also did some night-time fishing off the shore and I was able to catch some beautiful night sky photos.
In between the chaos I still managed to catch a few great shots while being out and about. Even the smallest amount of time spent outside during the lunch hour can made a huge difference in your day. At least, it does mine.
Finally before I sign off today I’d like to share a video of me and my bestie enjoying the fresh air and freedom on an evening drive. Enjoy and till next time…
