Wandering Wednesday

Welcome to Wandering Wednesday, the post where thoughts aren’t required to be organized, important or linked together in any way. We could call it “Random Wednesday”, “Scattered Wednesday”, or even “Who-in-the-world-cares Wednesday.”  But we won’t. It’s my blog and I’ll call it whatever I want.

1. My grandmother is doing a little better everyday. Her voice is becoming stronger. She understands what we say. She knows who people are. She even knows what she wants to say but can’t make the words come out. Her swallowing ability, however, has not returned, and that’s a big problem. She will go to a rehab hospital at some point, with the goal of eventually moving her in with my parents or my aunt. Thanks to those of you who have asked about her.

2. I am so pathetic at making decorating decisions! I had a spurt of creativity a while back, where I chose fabrics and got you all to vote on them. Remember that? By the time I got around to ordering fabrics, they were sold out of everything I had chosen. I was at a loss. However, I went this week to Seibels, one of my favorite local stores, and they had a beautiful bedding set-up that I adored. I could not afford to purchase everything from them, as their things can be a bit pricey for my budget. I did use the inspiration, however, to put together another look, with fabrics that were all on sale for DIRT CHEAP! Oh, how I hope it turns out like I see it in my head. That’s where the disconnect usually occurs. I get a vision in my head, but seem to have trouble making it come to life. I’ll give you an update when I make some progress.

3. I tried the new Dannon Greek yogurt today. Somebody had recommended it, and since we eat a lot of yogurt, I thought “why not?” It was really good. It’s thicker, heavier, and more filling than regular yogurt. It has a lot of protein and only 40 more calories than the yogurt I usually buy. I tried the honey flavor, but it comes in about five or six flavor choices.

4. Mary Anneliese has been in day camp all week from 9:00 until 3:30. I have missed her so much!! I’m feeling really good about my choice to homeschool again next year. I like having her around!

5. This is the hottest summer we have had in years, don’t you think? I’m melting daily, and I can’t get the energy to get things done. At least, not all the things I want to do.

6. The girls and I are going to pick blueberries at a blueberry farm tomorrow. I should have plenty to make lemon/blueberry jam in the near future.

7. I pulled out my sewing machine and a huge stack of fabric that I got for $4/yard at the Hannah Kate fabric sale last year. I need to get busy making some things for them. But… see #5.

That is all.

Happy Wednesday!
