Why am I up at this hour?

Well, I had a guest 'drop in' at be fair, I knew he was coming, but I should have gone to bed after he left! I didn't, so, now I'm here.

What's up with me? Still on vacation, but the weather has NOT been cooperating with my need to be outdoors to stain my son's furniture - REALLY frustrating, I'm running out of time to complete this project! Rain is good, yes (I work on a farm), but we need some sunshine too! Finally finished planting all the things 'we' (read: the boy) decided to plant this year, yay! So now, in addition to my pretty annuals and the strawberries, we have; lima beans, pumpkins, multi-colored peppers, carrots, peaches, apricots, a plum, and some wisteria. We hope, anyway. By way of explaination, let me just say that the boy is enamored of fruit pits for some reason, and saved all the peach, apricot and plum pits he ate his way to over the year so he could try to grow them. I told him they most likely won't produce fruit, but he didn't care - said it was worth a shot anyway!

He is such a doll, and he's been so loving lately I don't know what's got into him. Apparantly I'm the 'best mommy in the whole wide world' which, of course, I knew! But that's not it. Maybe it's just that I'm laid-off right now, and we're spending WAY more time together than we usually do, and he is happy to have me around. Either way, I've got no problems cuddling up with my getting bigger every day boy, as I know from what my friends tell me, I ought to suck it up now, because it doesn't last! Let it be known ten years from now, when he's a right punk trying to get me to lend him the car, that there was a time when he made me laugh every day, and broke my heart with his sweetness and light! I never thought I could love another human being so very much...

One of my guys came over to visit tonight, FINALLY, but as you can see from the opening paragraph, he came and went...pun intended. Also got a message from the one who is far away, just letting me know he's still out there, but very busy, and missing me. The newest one, the one who came out of the woodwork, had me on the phone for 10 HOURS the other night!!! What, I ask you, can two people find to talk about for 10 HOURS?! I was there, and I don't even know! Weird.

We have a Strawberry Festival to go to today, and I had better get some shut-eye if I want to keep up with the boy wonder! May be a good opportunity to get some camera-phone shots for next Summer Stock! I'm glad that Robin has given me a reason to kick my butt into gear and get the creative juices flowing, even if it's not the full experience I crave to immerse myself in. It's a start. And while I haven't done any work on my writing lately, blogging has been a good exercise for me. Maybe I'll post an excerpt someday? Maybe...


  1. Robin does it to me too :)I like the story - it is very close to what I think daily. The boys are so cute and cuddly now. There was a comedian that said once - there are two options - married and bored or single and lonely :) There is no perfect option - instead we make the best possible out of the current situation :)

  2. 10 hour phone conversation. what could you possibly talk about for 10 hours? thats about 1/2 a day. what are you going to talk about the next time?
    your a hero to your son and I suspect you will always have a good relationship with him even through the moody teen years. Still enjoy this while you can.


I do so love to hear from you - please let me know that you came to visit (sorry about the word verification, but I've been getting too much spam)!
