Good Day

The day started out with the knowledge that I was off work for the morning. The sleep-in felt luxurious.

I was having my morning coffee ant checking to see what the computer world was up to when my friend called. Her dog had been sprayed by a skunk. I often do online research for her. They don't have a computer. I read off a homemade remedy to her, and told her about a product we sold at Tractor Supply. (Nature's Miracle) I like my friends. I like those questions.

I'm excited to get the guest bedroom all set up, but as usual, there's a ton of things to be done before I get to that. Existing furniture must be moved to their new home to make place for the 'new furniture'. I set up a sweet little office space on the third floor landing. I heard Tim's truck followed by a small explosion of excitement from William.

Grandpa had gone archery hunting and got a large doe. The rest of the day was spent processing the meat. Once again we have steaks and roasts and tenderloins in the freezer. William was excited to help, and this led to a long conversation about meat and where meat comes from. William had lots of questions. He wants to go hunting with Grandpa in the worst kind of way. Grandpa told him he'd have to learn not to ask so many questions in the woods first.

It was a busy day, but I was sure glad to be in the middle of it. At one point, Tim and I looked at each other. I said, "We are so very fortunate..." and Tim's answer came back without hesitation: "Yes we are." And William continued to ask questions.

Late edit: That little book went to its new home. The gentleman who signed the book out 54 years ago took it home today.
