Oh, and since it's (almost) October, the cobwebs are now a design statement. I swear, some of those Breyer horses ringing my livingroom would fall down if I pulled those webs off......
Honey decided he wanted to clean the garage yesterday, and who am I to argue? I used to completely resent that he wanted me to "just be with him" while he did things like this. I felt I had plenty of my own things to do, grumble grumble grumble. But, after taking the Love and Respect class a few years ago, and listening to how having the woman present often energizes the man, I've become more okay with it. It's hard to feel useless, cause I can't help him with the heavy lifting. Plus, over the years some of our cats had gotten in and used the garage for a toilet . With my lung issues recently, cat poop is the last thing I need to be inhaling! So, Eve and I sat outside the garage in the shade and chatted with Honey as he worked. Well, I chatted, Eve kind of snored. He got a huge amount of stuff cleared out and a lot of rearranging done and now there's actually room to get from point A to point B without turning sideways
Spiders are fine in my house, as long as they stay out of the bedroom. I don't want them dropping down on my face while I try to sleep. Besides, they eat all the other bugs. Synergy, or simply company during work projects is part of the power of the RING! I have so much more energy when hubby and I work together, and we both think better when we are together. Never heard the term Breyer horses. Splain please???

This has been such a miserable allergy summer, the poor guy has had to carry me. I have not earned my keep at all. All this rain makes for grass pollen and mold spores.
I can not even be outside to trim the hedges. I really hate being stuck inside. I start to grumble and I think of Rachel and her 100 days of confinement and I suck it up.
I wish to be a better person because you all are such inspirations.
I miss exercise though. It is difficult, but winter is coming and maybe by February we will have a killing frost.
Did that sound like griping? That may have been griping.
Not griping. Now, I'm complaining that today is once again a hot day. 79* right now. THAT's GRIPING!!!

I talk to my shirts. Is that crazy?
I talk to inanimate objects all the time. Usually, it's questions... like: "Now, where did you go?" I've been known to look for my glasses while they are sitting on my face. But, here's the dilemma: Is it truly inanimate if it can constantly move and seek new hiding places???

You get 2 bonus points for that one!!!
