Two Good Days

She's in the kitchen, singing. I like that. She's happy and content after a nice meal. I made her favorite, my sauteed fish with an onion and wine sauce served with rice. Fresh asparagus steamed in olive oil, butter, red wine vinegar with just a tab of butter.

Business at the shop has been good for the last two days, too. Me, all smiles. The rain has given us a brief break. With luck our trench foot will heal.

Now for a quiet evening of soft music and a good book.

If the urge hits I might sneak over to Ebay, or some other site, and try to find a piece of old silver.

I face a ton of yard work tomorrow. After this weeks storms I need to climb back onto the roof and blow the pine straw and leaves and broken limbs back to ground - clean the gutters too. The grass needs to be cut and bailed. If you have need for hay, call me.

I feel so good I might accompany my wife to church in the morning. Really, it's possible. I'll call ahead and give warning. It's unsettling when the candles flicker and dim when I enter the sanctuary. I'd hate for some old lady to faint.

Then I wouldn't feel this good.

    1. Yes, indeed. The heat index has been out of the world. Rain, now. Light thunder, then again, why am I telling you...I'm sure you hear it. Have a good evening, Deb.

    1. Hey, I'm a good man....and have been known to attend church. Really. All silliness aside, I am a Christian. I have a close relationship with our Lord...I just have problems with organized religions, most which are focused more towards the collection of funds and are operated as social clubs. Not my cup of tea.

    2. I know you are. I am sorry if I offended you. I believe in God, but I too grew tired of what I call checkbook dictators. I was on staff at our local church as a janitor, I was shocked at what was happening behind the pulpit. That story in its self is a long posting.

    3. Hey, it's cool. No offense taken. You'd be surprised how many read my little ditties and fits over my weird sense of humor. Take care my friend...and, I hope the issue of your landlord works itself out to your benefit.

  3. Sounds like a good couple of days for you and Sweet Wife! Too bad you don't live closer - a bale of hay is $4.00 - and that's during the haying season. The price can go up to $5.75 in the Winter.

    1. Perhaps. I do find it strange how they wrap themselves close within their capes soon after I make an appearance. Must be sudden chill in the air as the candles dim.

  10. I'm now waiting for the Apocalypse and trying to decide if I want to start preparing lunch. Maybe you can send out an "all clear" post so I know whether my hunger is short term.
