Random Saturday

You can't see me...I have on my camo.

Today is the first day of modern gun season in my area, and all the men are in the woods. I am in the house, but I still have on my camo, so you can't see me.

I have a mountain of things I need to do, but I've already piddled two hours away this morning. I think I must be tired. That or I've finally FINALLY accomplished a slower attitude. Like my Mom, I rush through the day as if hounds are on my heels. It's ridiculous. I even scrapped some projects I wanted to get done by December 1rst, simply because I'm tired of pushing myself like a slave.

Speaking of my Mom, I've been scanning some old family photos and want to share this one with you.

Wasn't she a beauty? No wonder my Dad fell for her. And she was a gifted athlete. She was offered a basketball scholarship in 1957. She turned it down to get married. What a shame...but I wouldn't be here if she hadn't.

Look at those long legs. She had about three inches on me with those things. I would have loved those three inches as I'm barely 5' tall.

I must get moving around here. Time to start getting things together for our family Thanksgiving feast next weekend. I have to start early or I wind up stressing myself to illness. I didn't get that from my Mom!! Must have been my Dad. LOL!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Love that camo image - how cool a project that would be! Sometimes we need a slow day - I had 2 this week myself.
