Slackin’

I’ve been slacking in my blog writing duties. I even spaced out last week and forgot Friday’s Funnies! Sometimes, I write something and then I decide it’s either not good enough or I’m worried about the backlash of something I say. You know what I mean. Some folks can’t handle when others have a different opinion. I don’t need the drama.

My youngest grandson, Hudson, just had his very first birthday celebration on Saturday. It was a hoot! He thoroughly enjoyed his cake and he received so many gifts, he’ll be busy for a long time! I took thousands of photos thanks to the “burst” feature on my phone. I didn’t want to miss a second! I’m very proud of my son and daughter-in-law for raising such a happy, happy kid! He seems to have a bit of the same personality as my son did at that age. If that’s any indication at all, he will be a real kick-in-the-pants as he gets older!

Monday rolled around and I was cleaning the house up a bit. I’m having a friend over tomorrow for some crochet instruction; more like lunch and mudslides. While I was busy cleaning, Dad decided to go out and mow a bit. It was very hot though so he said it would just be for about an hour or so. He wasn’t outside for longer than 15-20 minutes when I heard this loud, horrible noise. I looked up and saw that our satellite signal had gone. I thought, Oh, great. Dad hit his head on the dish and knocked himself out. Well, that didn’t happen. I went outside and found that Dad had mowed over the extra cable outside. The cable got caught on the mower blades and spun that sucker up like a ball of yarn! It not only ripped the connector out but sliced the cable in two pieces! Great, just great. My son came over today and unwrapped the cable from the blades, hooked up a new cable, reset the box and we were good to go. Thank goodness. It’s boring as hell around here without tv!

I’m really looking forward to the Fall weather or sweater weather as I call it. I’m sick to death of being hot and sticky. I mean, you can only take off so many layers of clothing! I’m looking forward to taking photos of the leaves changing, and sitting outside comfortably. I wish I could still go hiking. Walking is one of my favorite things to do, but I can barely walk these days.

Maybe the change of seasons will inspire me to write more. I know I need to be more consistent. I sometimes just don’t know what to write about! Where do you find your inspiration to write? Do you have any suggestions for me? I’m all ears and eyes here, so lay them on me!

Motivational Monday

“Your worth is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart you’ll know when you find it.” ~ Steve Jobsmotivationalmondayquotes
