Monday morning Musings

I love early mornings in the winter, it feels like the dark envelopes me like a comforting cocoon. I suppose I feel this way because I live in a place that has sunshine for more than 300 days a year. Perhaps those who live in other places would beg to differ.

That being said, we got a late start this morning.

I just emptied out the last of the storebought greens into my morning green smoothie. I'm hoping that I've got enough in my garden to last until it gets hot again. This is my time of year for growing greens. We've been eating lettuce out of the garden for the past couple of weeks.

That being said, I've been a little more neglectful of my garden this year, a little less passionate, a LOT more distracted with other things. All of my broccoli plants just withered up and died. There is only one that is looking happy. I don't get that one. BUT I do have a thriving crop of spinach and kale.

My newly returned missionary son has a girlfriend!  He has no car, barely started a new job, doesn't have any money and hardly enough clothes to cover his back BUT he has a girlfriend. We all found out about it on Facebook. although this momma had her suspicions.....

That being said, she is a nice girl, a good girl, a very cute girl, I may add, and she was raised in Alaska. Hmm, sense a connection there?

I have been plagued all weekend with severe neck and shoulder pain. It's muscle tension, major extreme muscle tension.  Hmmmm, what do I have to be tense about???

That being said, I'm sure glad for an on-call myopractor who came to my rescue Saturday morning when the pain was so bad, I started a migraine (those are rare in my neck of the woods-ha ha). It forced me to get some rest and there has been a slight easing of the tension.

This week is Thanksgiving and we are super busy making sure folks have enough to eat.

That being said, I'm so glad for the fact that I do have enough to eat, and to spare, and I get to spend some quality time with the fam this week......

Hi Marilyn...
Sounds like you have had about a million things going on. The joys.
Speaking of the joys... I had a little smile on my face as I read about your son.
Our oldest son got home from his mission and proposed to a girl that he had met in the M.T.C. (4 days after getting home.)
No job, no car, no apartment of his own...etc...etc..
Well it took him 9 months to get her here from Brazil, 11 days later they got married in the SLC temple.
Sigh.. they still do not have a car, etc.. etc.
Love is blind.
Hope my tale of woe makes you feel better :)
