I swear that could be my Bug standing there. Except we have no cows. It'd be a colt or a goat at our house. Every night after dark, I have to call her in from the big fig tree beside the house. See there are a lot of chickens who like to roost there. Bug climbs up in amongst them and pets them all.
Been a lot of frequent showers through here in the past week. And a few stormy ones. We lost our electricity for over three hours on the 4th of July! Between the holiday and the rains and an uncle of one of Pete's best friends passing, the guys have been home all week.
Me, well, I felt lousy all last week. By the Thursday before the 4th I was putting old drops of Bug's in my right ear, for the pain. Monday, I made it to the doctor. Strep throat. First time in my life I have been diagnosed with it. Haven't had the raw throat....but pain in my cheekbones, my ear, where my wisdom teeth were removed 25 years ago, and in my right tonsil. (Yep, I still have them.)
I have done nothing been been very lazy. Slept a lot. Finally got out and went to Wally World yesterday. Bubba went with me. I got groceries, hopefully for a week. And Bubba bought both him and his dad a new pair of work boots each. Out of his first ever real, certifiable paycheck.
I've had computer issues. Been on the AOL Tech boards getting a helping hand with them. So, if you've wondered about me.....that should explain it.
If I missed seeing something on your journal you really wanted me to see, send me an email with the link and I'll swing by. I know most of the alerts I have, I'll never get to.
And I will give you the 9th Devotion on Marriage. Just been there myself.
I'll try to come back and be witty or inspiring or something when I feel a little more like me.
