overextending myself completely to get
my Diploma, I am now feeling somewhat
beached. I am waiting on my Registration
with the National Association to begin
putting my ads out there. They are moving
at a pace that is too slow for me! Attila
reminds me that everyone moves at a
pace too slow for me, and he preaches
I do have patience for deserving persons and circumstances. However, having invested what is to us a small fortune for training, I am extremely anxious to begin paying back our life savings.
I really dislike poverty, there is so little dignity in it!
Well, never mind all that. Life is pretty good right now. The weather today is sunny and the world is fresh and green. Sunshine goes a long way to making things right in the world.
I have been making lists of things that need doing, as Attila and I have a lot of domestic catching up to do. Every morning I write my list and by the time the lights go out most of the items are checked off. I like lists because I only have to remember that something needs doing once. The list allows my mind to wander all over the place, and still accomplish a lot in a day.
Last evening Attila and I drove to a little town which has two, count them, two grocery stores. We did our banking, then hit the big time, shopping specials at two stores. Let the good times roll!
We enjoyed our drive into town. The overcast day was breaking up, with occasional rays of sunshine peaking through the clouds. On one deserted stretch of highway a red fox was sauntering across the road. A healthy looking fellow, with black legs and huge bushy tail. He stopped at the side of the road to give us a discerning look as we drove by.
Today my list includes making a batch of granola and cleaning the glass doors on the wood stove and fireplace. Attila's list has one outstanding item on it, get next winter's firewood into the wood shed. He is making good progress. He needs to finish soon though, so that we can assess what we have and decide if we need to buy firewood this year. So far, it looks like Attila can bring in enough for the winter from our property.
The mosquitoes are fierce. I am battling one enterprising specimen as I write. A very cagey mosquito she is, I've swiped at her at least four times and missed every time!
