I Want A Cow

Yes, really I do, I want a cow. I want to hear her moo, and watch her take care of her calf and chew her cud. I want a cow. I can take pictures of her and write about her and y’all can read about her too! I could even paint her picture and hang it up in my house. Doesn’t that sound fun? Maybe I could share some butter with y’all, and then I could make really good cheese too. Truthfully, I love their sounds, I love hearing the variety of different sounds, especially contented sounds.
Don’t bother me with the details, yes, I know that the price of corn is up, and no, I don’t have a place to put her yet. I know, I know, just don’t bother me with the details. It does not cost anything to want; it costs money when you do something about that want. Daddy told me that I could do anything that I set my mind to, so I am setting my mind to it. I want a cow, in spite of the cost and other problems.
So how am I going to talk Kevin into it you ask? Do you not know me well enough, to know better than to ask that question, because I told you, I want a cow.
Kevin knows that I want a cow. Time will tell what happens next.

The weather has changed here, hopefully the intense heat has gone. this is however south Georgia, and anything is possible here. The change in temperature and the relief is welcome! This always reminds me that it is time to decorate for fall, I will do my best to get it done, and choose not to worry about what does not get done.
There are not enough hours in the day it seems, or maybe my plate is so full right now that I will never get it all done. The unwanted changes in my life are difficult at best to handle most days. Watching Daddy go through this horrific disease, and watching Mama adapt and cope with his deterioration, is taking its toll on all of us. We are each struggling in our own way.
My youngest brother has a gift, and makes us laugh when we least feel like it, he even makes Daddy laugh! He has taught me that sometimes you just have to say "Boogers". At a time, when there is nothing to laugh about, and you think that you can't laugh about anything, there are still boogers.
This morning when I thought about all of the things that lay ahead for me to do today, I was reminded of that word. I spoke the word Boogers, and couldn't help it, I smiled. Maybe I didn't laugh, but I smiled. Boogers! It will not change reality, but it will give me a moment to breathe and smile.

Cooler Weather

Last night was the first night in over 4 months that we did not run any AC!! Woo Hoo!! Wonder how long that will last? Admittedly I am not ready for cold weather, but this was a welcome change. Highs are expected to be in the mid 70's today and lows in the upper 50's tonight. However this is south Georgia, and it is too early to think that those hot 90 degree days are now history. For now, we will enjoy this weather while we can!
