there has been a lot of life changes for us. the first and most stressful was my partner's mother hospitalizations and surgeries. it was a long and hard time and she passed away last month right before mothers day. so we have been dealing with that and the after effects.
i have been having health issues myself and with the price of everything going up and up had to get a job outside the house.
but we are moving through everything and hanging in there.
i will be updating more now that things are feeling more under control and settled.
we are experiencing hot weather here in upstate new york and that is wearing me out. thank goddess for the a/c!!!

I am getting there slowly but surely.
Who knew this flu could have me down for so long?
Besides the flu I have been doing a lot of planning for spring cleaning, garden planning and some much needed spiritual maintenance.
It is raining right now and the snow if finally melting...I can see grass!!!
Things are churning in the cauldron and on the verge of blooming...life is good.

Yes...this is what I have. But I am getting over it.
Today is the first day this week I have felt human. I attempted to do a few housewifey things which I have neglected all week (yes folks I have really been sick. me not houseclean?). I vacuumed and dusted the livingroom and did a couple loads of laundry. Then I left the water running in the kitchen sink and decided that that was enough I had better go sit down and take it easy. I blame it on the clogged and congested head.
Dinner preparation is staring at me. We have been making-do and doing take-out all week. I will admit that not worrying about cooking has been fun but I guess we better get back to reality soon.
I am still going to take it easy the next couple of days because I can not shake this horrible cough. But next week it is back to the old bump and grind and I have a long list running in my head of "stuff to do".

Yes, morning is my time of the day. Early morning...I love it. I like to wake up and take my time getting on with my day. Since I like to get stuff done early I like to rise early so I have more time in the day.
Anyway...I haven't posted much lately. It has been rainy around here lately and I have been enjoying it.
I just finished mopping the floors and now I have to do some dishes and that is that for the day.
The one good thing I have noticed is that I have been doing really good at grocery shopping...stocking up on stuff and buying more with coupons and sales. Therefore I don't have to grocery shop as much...just to pick up a random perishable thing here and there.
That makes me happy.
The thing that doesn't make me happy is I have noticed that my carbon monoxide detector goes sometimes off when I used my Swiffer Wet Jet. It has happened at least three times. I wasn't sure why it would happen but I finally realized today it does it when I use that damn thing.
That is scary. I am not sure what is in that cleaning stuff but I am gonna get me one of these as soon as I can afford it.

I am moving our pizza and dessert night to Thursday night in honor of the best show on tv returning. I have been craving rice crispy treats so that is what I am making for dessert. I like to use half regular rice crispys and half cocoa crispys. Is it crispies or crispys? Actually I think it is technically Rice Krispies. LOL.
Anyway...it is raining today. I have to mop the floors and do a load of sheets and towels. Then I am done done done with housework for the week. That is nice. Just the regular picking up and straightening but nothing too unbearable.
Yesterday I went to the grocery store and bought a pint of blueberries. I plan on making blueberry muffins this weekend. Oh yeah!
Okay...on with the cleaning. But first some wheat-free frozen waffles and yogurt.
