- I feel grateful that Ben the produce manager at the little local grocery store got Kombucha in for me to be stocked in their store. Yes!!!
- I feel grateful to myself for stretching.
- I feel grateful for my daughter Storm’s sense of humor.
I woke at 4:30am and read for an hour before falling back asleep. I woke again at 8am. Angel woke up too and we snuggled for a few minutes. Then we got dressed and went in the kitchen. I made 2 64oz. strawberry banana smoothies. I drank 2 young coconut waters. Then put Angel in the backpack and rode to work at the greenhouse.
At the greenhouse I planted starts and watered. I am so thrilled to get paid to play in the dirt. Angel nursed and napped while I played with plants. I drank one of my smoothies and abunch of water.
Next we rode to Maude Mary’s and helped her pack for a couple hours. Angel played on the floor for some of the time. The rest of the time she hung out in the backpack. I drank my other smoothie.
After leaving Maude Mary’s we rode to Brookshire brothers grocery store where my Kombucha order was waiting. I was so excited that Ben the produce manager had gotten the approval to carry it in stock when I requested it. He was thrilled that I was thrilled..lol.
Next we rode home and switched to the car. We drove to Walmart with my roommate and did more shopping. At Walmart Angel baby was getting fussy and tired. She fell asleep on the way home.
At home I unloaded the car and watched some Netflix. I ate some collard greens and hummus. When Angel woke up I made Storm spaghetti for dinner. She hung out with us in the kitchen, it was fun talking with her and Angel loves spending time with her sister.
Angel took a bath and I showered. Then we read one story and Angel nursed to sleep.
- I feel grateful for baby eyes.
- I feel grateful to myself for doing the best job at work.
- I feel grateful for bed time.
I woke up at 4:30am and read until 6:30am. Angel baby woke up. It was cold 54 degrees out and I slept with windows open like I do most of the year here in Texas. I dressed Angel in socks, long sleeve shirt and pants. Then we played for a while in our bedroom. My roommate switched bedrooms yesterday so Angel and I cleaned and organized the guest room. It is super cute now.
It was a beautiful morning we went outside. Angel played in her outside playpen. I drank a young coconut water and a bunch of RO water. Then I sat in the sun and ate half a watermelon and read. Angel was tired from waking up so early so we laid down in bed, she nursed to sleep and I read some more.
Angel took a half hour nap then Storm came in and took Angel to play with her for a while. I made 2 64 oz strawberry banana smoothies and put them in the freezer. Then I read some more.
I thought I had the day off when I suddenly realized that I needed to clean the church. I packed Angel in the backpack, loaded up the recycling in the bike trailer to drop off and we were off.
At church I cleaned and organized the kitchen which took a while but really needed to be done. I drank one of my smoothies while I cleaned. I cleaned my heart out and the church looks amazing. Angel napped a little in the backpack.
After cleaning we rode home. I ate hummus and vegan naan and watched Netflix for an hour while Angel played on the floor. I was really tired from getting up so early. I gave Angel a bath, read her stories and tried nursing her to sleep but she wasn’t tired. So she climbed around me and played. I put her on the floor to play and tried reading. I kept nodding off and dropping my book. Finally miss active pants was tired. We snuggled and fell asleep.
- I feel grateful for my life.
- I feel grateful to myself for play.
- I feel grateful for plants.
I woke up in the night from 3am to 5am and read. Then again at 6:30am. I fed Oliver (my pet sitting dog) and woke up Angel. We got dressed, put Oliver outside to wait for his owner to come home. and I drove Angel and I home. At home I made 2 64oz. banana strawberry smoothies. I drank one young coconut water and 24oz. RO water. I put Angel in the backpack, loaded up the bike and rode to work at the greenhouse.
At work I planted tomatoes, cucumbers, basil and arugula. I had a blast and loved every minute of it. While I was there I drank one of my smoothies. Angel took a nap in the backpaxk. When work was over I rode to the Chinese restaurant and ordered veggie fried rice to go. Then I rode to Storms school and dropped it off for her for lunch. I rode to Maude Mary’s and helped her pack for 4 hours. Angel had fun crawling around on the floor. I drank my other smoothies while I was there as well as 24oz of water.
I rode home and packed Angel in her car seat. My roommate wanted to go to the store. So I drove us all to pick up Storm from school and then we went to the grocery store. After getting home and unloading all the groceries I sat outside with Angel and ate collard greens with hummus.
When I was full we went out back and worked on the garden together for a bit until Angel got too tired. We went inside and took a bath/shower. I read Angel her library book “Froggy rides a bike”. Then she cuddled up and nursed to sleep.
- I feel grateful for my new greenhouse job.
- I feel grateful to myself for believing in myself.
- I feel grateful for another day.
I woke up at 7am. I slept all night. Angel baby was awake too. We got dressed and went outside. Outside I watered the fruit trees and plants with Angel baby played in her walker. Then we went inside and I made 2 64oz. banana strawberry mint smoothies.
Storm had her yearly Dr. appointment check up. So I woke her up and we drove to the Dr. She checked out healthy, which I already knew. Then I took her to school. I was debating whether to drive to my new job at a greenhouse since it wasn’t very far away from Storm’s school. I knew if I did I would miss out on my morning ride and I really wanted to ride. So I drive home and put Angel in the backpack and biked to work. It was a great ride.
At work I played in dirt for 2 delightful hours. Angel played in dirt too and was covered in dirt from head to toe. She was a tired baby and fell fast asleep on the ride home. I drank both of my smoothies while working.
At home we got back in the car and drove to where I’m pet sitting for the night. Oliver the labradoodle was in the backyard and thankfully didn’t make too big of a mess. He only chewed up an empty flower pot, which is well behaved for him. Usually he digs up plants and once he at the welcome mat. Oliver was happy to see us. We hung out with him for a while then I let him ride in the car when we went to pick up Storm from school.
We got Storm and went home. Oliver hung out at my house with us while I did somethings around the house and packed an overnight bag. Oliver and Angel played together. He would lay on the floor. She would squeal and crawl all over him. I ate some veggie burgers but they didn’t agree with me and gave me a tummy ache. Angel got a quick bath because she was still filthy and had dirt all over her.
We then drove back to where I am house sitting. Oliver ate and played. Angel was really tired so we went to bed early without stories.
- I feel grateful for fun times with my girls.
- I feel grateful to myself for spending the morning listening to inspirational speakers.
- I feel grateful for daily bicycle adventures.
I woke up from 1am to 3am. Then woke up again at 7:30am. Angel woke up too. We got dressed, made 2 64oz. banana strawberry smoothies and went outside to dig more of the garden space. Angel sat on a blanket and watched while I dug. We listened to a speech by Ester Hicks. It was a great time and I got the outside circle of my garden finished. Yay!!
It was time to go to story time at the library. I packed up a big box in the bike trailer to mail to my friend who is having a baby. On the way to story time we stopped at the post office and mailed the box. Then we stopped by my friend Kathy’s and picked up some jars she was giving me. We also got a red pepper she gave us from her garden and some mint and rosemary.
During story time at the library they have been talking about plants. I passed around the mint and rosemary for everyone to smell. The kids loved it. Angel Baby amazing me sometimes and today during story time she sat and listened to the stories just like a big girl. Her attention span is really long for a 6 month old. I drank one of my smoothies while we listened to stories
After storytime we rode across town to Maude Mary’s. On the way I stopped at this big old house that’s been for sale that I’ve had my eye on for a bed and breakfast. I am so glad I did. It is exactly what I want. At Maude Marys we helped her pack for 2 hours. I also drank my other smoothie.
On the way home I stopped by the big old house again. Then the realtor pulled in. I asked him about the house. He gave me the details and a tour. I can totally see this happening for me when I get an investor or however it ends up being mine. I can see it now with beautiful gardens full of fruit trees, plants and fountains.
At home Angel and I rested for an hour. I was hungry so I made another 64oz. strawberry banana smoothie and drank it. Then we went to church for evening prayer. We got there early and had a great talk with pastor Pam. When church was over we talked to people for a while before biking back home.
Mat home I talked to Storm and her friend for a while. Angel and I took a bath/shower, read half a story before Angel was too tired. Angel nursed to sleep and I read for a while.
- I feel grateful for a new blender from my friend Leigha.
- I feel grateful to myself for talking nicely to my ego.
- I feel grateful for Texas jamborees.
I woke up from 4am to 6am and read. Then I woke up again at 8:30am. Angel was awake and smiling. We went into the kitchen. I drank one young coconut water, 16oz. water, ate a honeydew melon and made 2 64 oz. banana strawberry smoothies in the food processor.
I hooked the bike trailer up and loaded the recycling to drop off on my way to work. I also loaded up Angels walker to play in when I would be working. I put Angel in the backpack and we headed off. I dropped of the recycling and continued on to Maude Mary’s. When I was almost there I realized I had forgotten my smoothies in the refrigerator. I figured I would survive my 3 hours of helping Maude Mary pack.
I helped Maude Mary for three hours. Angel played in her walker. We got a lot done. For being 87 years old Maude Mary has a lot of stamina.
We went back home and my blender that my friend Leigha bought for me had arrived. I was very happy about that. A jumper got Angel Baby also arrived. Pastor Pam came over. She was taking up along on her grocery shopping trip in Taylor so I could get items that can’t be found in Rockdale. It was a fun ride and I drank one of my smoothies. It’s always nice to see the human side of clergy. I also had a blast at HEB in Taylor. There were some great deals on produce.
The ride back home was just as pleasant as the ride there. Back home I had collard greens with hummus. Storm got home from school so I talked to her a while. Then I tried watching Netflix but it didn’t feel good. I cleaned up some around the house then put Angel in her car seat and we drove to a little town called thorndale to go to a jamboree.
The janboree was fun. There is a very talented fiddler with a wonderful singing voice that I like to watch play and sing. He has a great stage character.
We left at intermission because we were getting too tired. Angel fell asleep on the 15 minute ride home. We got home and I drank some OJ. Angel woke up, we got into bed and she nursed but was wide awake. She crawled all over me and all over the floor for an hour before she was ready to nurse to sleep. I am a tired mama.
- I feel grateful for people saying kind things about me.
- I feel grateful to myself for being passionate about life.
- I feel grateful for singing.
I went to sleep around 9:30pm. I woke up at 4am and read until 6am. Then I slept again until 8am. Angel was awake too. We got dressed and went in the kitchen. I made a 64 oz. banana blueberry smoothie in the food processor. I drank one young coconut water and 24oz. of water.
I packed up the baby, hooked up my bicycle trailer and loaded a big iron fire pot into it. Angel and I rode across town, the ride felt so good. I love the feel of the wind blowing my dress and the breathing in the fresh morning air. Angel was happily singing in my ear. We dropped the fire pot off at Maude Mary’s and then rode to church. Adult study was great. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It is having me question my whole belief system once again and it feels really good. Angel had fun playing on the floor. I also throughly enjoyed the church service. Pastor Pam gave an excellent sermon on serving others.
After church I rode to the grocery store. I bought bananas and strawberries and Storms “food”. We then rode home. When I got home my handyman Gary and his wife were waiting for me. (I had asked him yesterday if he could help me move a bed that Maude Mary is giving me for helping her pack to move). I unloaded the groceries, put Angel in her car seat and we all rode to Maude Mary’s. We loaded up the bed, drove back and unloaded it.
I drank a mango smoothie then packed up Angel and rode across town to get a drill bit and incense. Then we rode to community choir practice. Choir practice was a lot of fun. When it was over Angel and I rode back across town to evening church service.
I was really tired during evening service. After service was over pastor Pam and another lady chatted for a while. It was fun just relaxing and talking.
We rode home. I had collards and hummus for dinner. I made spaghetti for Storm and her friend. After dinner Angel and I showered, read half a story and she nursed to sleep.
- I feel grateful for the sun
- I feel grateful to myself exercising
- I feel grateful for opportunities
I woke up at 6:30am. I had gone to sleep real early the night before so even though I had been awake from 12am to 2am, I still felt rested. I got up, drank a young coconut water and made 2 64oz. strawberry banana smoothies in the food processor. I woke Angel up, got her changed and dressed and put her in the backpack. We walked downtown for a 5k walk to support the little local theater here in town. It was a good walk and I met some new people. Afterward I ate a bunch of cantaloupe and bananas that they were offering
We walked back home. I cooked some potatoes and ate them. I immediately felt heavy and tired. I did some laundry and Angel took a nap. I received a phone call from a lady wanting someone to help take care of her mother. Angel and I rode the bicycle over to meet her and her mother. I talked with them for a couple of hours and got the job. I was really happy about that
We rode back home and took a nap. Angel woke up really fussy and was pulling on her ear. I put mullein oil and garlic drops in her ears. I watched Netflix and let her nurse a couple hours. I drank one of my smoothies. Then made some rice. I ate that and felt like a could barely move.
Angel and I hung out and watched Netflix the rest of the night. We didn’t get a shower or stories and fell asleep around 9:30pm.
