When your mind won't turn off; might as well get up with your Roo
and just muck out the barn.
Stop up your ears with budfuls of loud praise and worship music and
rake load after load of poopy ole hay.
Whistling out "Ten Thousand Reasons... "
with the whole barnyard.
Then grab the hose and knock out all the spiderwebs and dust.
With water running off the rafters...
Before you know it...
even the heart can get a refreshing.
I think last time I wrote; we had a health
screening through Myguy's work the next morning.
We both were in our healthy ranges for the most part
but my cholesterol was still jacked up. Yeah Myguy beat me again.
It bugs me too coz I eat so much healthier than he does.
I don't get it? The nurse told me it must be my genes.
When we left we were both so thirsty and he was starvin coz we had to fast.
So we pulled into a fast food joint where he "loves" to get breakfast and
this is the sign.
Try our mile high bacon thickburger.
(It does sound quite wonderful though.)
with cheese and extra pickles.
Later that night we drove to NW Arkansas
and went to the demolition derby.
It was a fun night.
Love when they play the national anthem and
at both derbys in the last week... the announcer prayed first!
It was a serious night of crashing into eachother.
It really made even me want to get in a vehicle and just go
crunch it into another one.
Myguy... well he had that goofy look in his eyes.
He gets it when he races too.
It's a sickness I'm tellin ya and
both our sons have it too when they're drag racing.
They didn't get it from me.
Except I maybe could do this just once ... "To Wandaaaaaah!"
The winner of this derby won ten thousand dollars.
Could you even imagine?
Shhhh don't tell the people at the health screening that
we ordered a fat plate of bad grease.
With extra sugar on top please.
A little oinkfest served up on a paper plate.
We also ate at Applebees and I have to include a pic of this shrub we parked by.
Does anyone know what it is? I have GOT to find out and plant some.
Never have I smelled such a beautiful fragrance. It was seriously intoxicating.
Kinda wanted to rub some on me and put some in my purse and in the glovebox.
Yeah that good!
Still workin on more Fall Cleaning.
Even got out the pruning shears and cut the moonflower off
to the ground. It was still flowering like crazy but
the leaves were lookin kinda shabby and was growing right into the greenhouse.
It hurt to cut it down; it did.
But I'm glad it's gone.
Seeds were falling off all over too!
Won't have to buy any come Spring!
These tall cannas were cut down too and hopefully tomorrow
I can dig up the big roots. They were right up against the windows and I couldn't
see the birdfeeders any more from the desk.
So long cannas. You need a new home.
Then I started taking all the old bottles down from the window ledges and
washing them. They were all full of feathers.
It's still a teatotal disaster inside....
Got about half of the windows washed
as the sun was going down.
This is where the cannas were right back here.
And see all the wisteria?
I hope there will be blooms dangling all over the place
Could be the year
I sign off tonight with another scripture picture.
When I came home from getting groceries today I drove to
the tracks and took this pic.
The verse is what I got mucking out the barn.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."
