Detox and Recovery
This week is detox of bad food, and my recovery of lack of sleep and intentional exercise. Oh my. I cannot wait to get the roast in the crock pot this morning. I don't want to see pizza in this house again, unless it's homemade (blech).
I tried my best to keep the party treats healthy, the best I could, and she was okay with that.
I did very little handiwork, and I know I am very behind on Christmas gifts. I have another order or two for slouchy hats. I must get one started today.
I have all of the flower beds put to sleep for winter. All my plant hooks put away. The furniture is last to go, but not quite yet this year.
I still have some vegetable plants to pull from the back garden, but hope a kiddo will help today. They have no school - conferences.
The chicken/goat barn has yet to be cleaned out. Interruptions, repairs, and other frustrating mishaps have prevented it. Patience. There's that word again.
We almost had the chance to get a puppy. Daughter's youth group leader found it, but owners have since claimed her. That's okay. I'm not quite ready for one just yet. They take so much time and care, and I have winter prep to tackle.
Yesterday, National Novel Writing Month started, and I completely forgot. Yikes! I am one day behind, but will be back at it today, after I exercise and dinner prep is completed.
