Daily Ordinary for July 31, 2014

Celebrate grace. I've used grace before but just had to again. Today is my birthday and God has graced me with so many friends and such a wonderful life. I've been married to the same man for 42 years which is wonderful in itself. I'd hate to have to train another one. 
I truly deserve far less treasures in my life.

REWIND Wednesday for July 30, 2014 Fly Stick + Trixy = A CATastrophe


This is my cat, Trixy.

She is a strange critter.




She is fascinated with water to the point of falling in the toilet, the bath tub and the pool more than once.


She steals cotton balls from my bathroom counter top. I found 26 under the armoire in the bedroom one day.

She thinks she needs to be right on top of me when I am working in the office. Quite often there will be a little cat hair included with our payments. I'm sure the vendors are pleased.
She hides when the wigglies come and within 10 seconds of the sound of the door closing on the last one leaving she appears. I have no clue how she can figure that one out.


She is very particular about what door she wants to use when she goes outside. She will lead me all the way back to our bedroom slider instead of the doors in the family room which are much closer and more convenient.

This past week she experienced a new occurrence. One that I hope she doesn’t repeat. And the fact that she choose to do this at 1:00 AM didn’t help either.

Farmer hollered at 1:00 AM, “Diane, come here and help me.” Ughhh.  “This better be worth getting roused from a decent sleep since it’s so hard for me to stay asleep” I thought.

This is what the fly stick should look like.
I found Farmer in the back bathroom holding Trixy with this lovely fly stick stuck to the side of her. She was not happy.

This is the after picture.
The fly stick was on the island and naughty Trixy apparently traverses the island when we aren’t around. She got a little too close to the stick and they became one. She didn’t want that union and started to spaz out and run around with the stuck stick.

Oh, and by the way, there was some maple syrup in the bottom cup to draw flies that dripped all through the house during her rampage.

I went and got a box cutter and cut the Trixy’s hair off as close to the stick as I could.

She was still extremely sticky so out the door she went.

She still comes back in with leaves, grass and other items stuck to her. I have to get the clippers we use on the cows and shave the hair off. That will be so fun.

Daily Ordinary for July 30, 2014

Celebrate gravel. Even though we live on a gravel road and it's dusty, I can't imagine the muddy, mess dirt alone would be. 
Remember all the broken wagon wheels?

Daily Ordinary for July 29, 2014

Celebrate mascara! Yes, this is vain and inconsequential but it's the one thing I will not go without. Even if the house catches on fire (well, maybe not) I will put on mascara before leaving.

Celebrate friendship. If you have the blessing of friends, enjoy them and recognize the treasure you have. Unexpected events can change your lives, never to be the same again.

Daily Ordinary for July 27, 2014

Celebrate random thoughts. For instance - If there were toilets in the forest would man ever put the seats down? Now, if you really want to hear some funny stuff tune in to www.reslife.org at 9:30 or 11:30 today. Michael Jr. a nationally known comedian is there and he is really funny. Not churchy funny but hilarious.

Celebrate the ordinary

Today is the only day you have. Don't wish it away, worry it away or plan it away. Your ordinary days add up to life.
