I worked about 40 hours this week! And I can really feel it. My boss’s father died on Tuesday, so I filled in for her and worked every day. Then I had meetings on Wed and Thurs nights. So I am behind on housework, and behind on rest! So I’m looking forward to the weekend to hopefully catch up on those. It turned cold again, but I think this might be about the last of it and spring is almost here. I might go around to my bluebird trail tomorrow and check the boxes, maybe put a couple new ones up and take a couple down and move them. I haven’t seen a bluebird in a while so I’m ready. They really give me joy.
I just sat down here to check email and take a break, while I have some beef stew cooking upstairs and it smells great. One of the hard things about my job is that I do a lot of cooking, cleaning, etc etc all day, then when I get home I have to do the same thing, and by then I am a little tired of it! I’m sure I’ll keep adjusting to it.
Yesterday afternoon I had a treat when I got home. The phone rang, and it was our son calling from CA. He said he had seen some bluebirds while he was walking to lunch, and it made him think about me! I’m not sure what kind of bird it was, maybe a western bluebird. But anyway, after I talked to him and hang up I cried. That meant a lot to me, that he thought about me seeing those birds. I miss him. I’m hoping we might be able to take a quick trip out there to see him next month. Have to wait and see.
Ok, that’s about it for now!
