To keep me sane during a busy week!

This week is insanely crazy for me. I am in charge of the fund raising tea at Graham and Ella's school on Sunday. This is going to keep me busy with food, decorating, and all of the last minute details. I am actually enjoying the whole thing, and really looking forward to Sunday. However, the farmer has thrown his back out, and is barely moving. He is supposed to bake scones, pies, and a cake for me, make lemon curd to go with the scones, and sing at the tea. I must confess to feeling very nervous that every thing will just go horribly wrong! I also hate seeing my husband suffer (obviously, I don't think any wife LIKES seeing her husband suffer....) and know how badly he wishes he were outside getting all of his work done. In amidst all of the craziness, I got a nice walk in this evening, and the golden sunlight, sweetly scented warm air, and good music on my ipod helped reduce a great deal of my stress!


  1. Too bad we don't live closer, I could help you out (except the singing -haha). I hope your farmer is feeling better soon. I know very well how cranky they get when there is work to do and can't do it!

    Wow, you can definitely keep that spider at your place. We don't need any that big. The ones in the barn are big enough.

    Try to take it easy as you organize the fundraiser (I know easier said than done). Have a good time.

  2. Thank you! I think he is feeling a bit better today. Hooray! I am trying to take it easy, or at least get a good walk in each day. That always helps me to relax!

  3. that spider is going to haunt my dreams.

  4. Kind of like the rat Uncle Craig bought Graham for his birthday is haunting mine! I keep thinking I am hearing the thing running around in my house at night!
