This is an edited entry I wrote about a year ago of a typical day in my life. It will show why I feature my blog, “Sugar and Spice and Most Things Nice.” It is a day in the life of an uncommonly blessed woman; however, she, herself, needs a little “editing” once in a while!
My day started with speech participation in local Toastmaster’s Int. Club. It was titled “The Piggy Parable” it was about 650 words long and lasted eight minutes. I thought it was pretty good, or maybe near terrific! (I’ll blog it soon.) Of course, I had to make my Wal-Mart stop to get essentials (and a few non-essentials). Do your non-essentials ever cost more than your essentials? That’s the part that makes them rich! Has anybody out there tried out tooth whitener? Is it worth the time and effort? Oh, back to my day. I sent a birthday card to a very pretty girl. Got a nice response. Saw a picture on FB of my son. He is a handsome dude. Do you notice I get sidetracked a lot? So, what’s next? I got fed up with my poor online service and read (company) the riot act (in a Christian manner, of course); maybe it helped. At least they agreed to lower the price. Went to Lowes for garden hose, hand spade, and some of those circle thingies Sammy (my husband) needs to fix the faucets. Grabbed for my purse. Wasn’t there?! Flew back home hoping mightily that I had not left it on the car trunk. Pulled in the driveway. There stood the most wonderful couple holding my purse and waiting for me to come claim it. They saw it fall from my car top, checked my ID to see where the “idiot” lived. I guess you know my reaction to that! Oh, thank God, and thank Doug and Debbie (I think that was their names). Made a fantastic supper of ground chuck, mashed potatoes and gravy, black beans, and corn on the cob. In my country that is supper, not “dinner.” Watched O’Reilly and made some choice comments to Sammy about the VA mess, and about the Senator who charged that Benghazi was a racially motivated ploy. Comments, comments. Air conditioning is broken but my fix-it honey is working on it An average day in the life on a very blessed woman! (Oh, those circle thingies are called washers.)
