I guess I took a little unplanned break. That is one of the things I like about having my very own blog; it is kind of like being retired. If I don’t want to do anything I just don’t.
I have wondered how I will know when it is time to quit blogging; I think I have the answer. I don’t think I will know, someday I just won’t write anymore, I don’t think that will happen any time soon, unless you quit reading, but as I try to transition away from that “bottom of the heart” stuff the schedule may become more erratic.
I kind of left you hanging with my vacuum fiasco. Update: I now have a new Oreck XL commercial here (I am home tonight) and a nine year old Oreck XL at the lake. That one saw a lot of action the first 4 ½ years it spent in our home. The last 4 ½ it didn’t work as often but when it did work it worked real hard.
The Oreck is so simple even I understand it. It doesn’t pull me if I push the handle nor does it push me if I pull the handle; it has a very simple ON/Off switch. The floors at the lake are clean, well maybe not real clean but they have been vacuumed. As soon as I get the old Hoover out of there this whole deal will just be a memory.
I kind of wish I wouldn’t have told you the vacuum story. Now everyone that comes to my house, especially the lake house will check to see if the floors are clean.
I did a little more than just vacuum at the lake. I spent a little time on the water, I didn’t catch any fish but I think you need to actually put a hook in the water. I saw a pair of Bald Eagles, although sightings are becoming more common it is still very exciting. These were in a willow tree at the water’s edge; we watched them for a few minutes from about 200 yards. They are beautiful and impressive birds. I’m proud Ben Franklin wasn’t successful in his attempt to make the Turkey our national bird.
I enjoyed my time at the lake (except for the sweeper) this time and for the first time in forever questioned my decision to come home as soon as I did.
I know Mother’s Day has come and gone since I was here last. To say I had a quiet one would be an understatement; I think that is exactly what I needed this year. I better be careful I’m getting close to the heart and I don’t want to go there tonight.
The next two weeks are going to be a little difficult, so if you don’t mind, I could probably use an extra prayer.
Good Night and God Bless.
