Here’s How I Roll #2

  1. The other morning, before pig-farmer left for work, he came to me and said (sort of cautiously), “I don’t know if you know this … but your keys are in the basket you keep the clothespins in.”  Luckily that basket sits on a little table near the back door and luckily he noticed the keys randomly sitting it it.  I was a little surprised he noticed, but very glad!  I am not surprised I put the keys in there…
  2. I bumped into the fan-on-a-stand in my bedroom.  I apologized to it.  I guess some habits are good?
  3. Little things are where it is at.  The other night I bought a footlong sub for my son.  I told him I did that so he could take 1/2 in his lunch the next day if he didn’t want the whole thing for supper.  He told me, “That was thoughtful of you.”  Which made me giggle.  So, he then developed an accent, and repeated it again… I don’t know why it amused me so much. Being easily amused is (usually) a blessing.
  4. I’ve always been interested in the weather/meteorology; probably due to being a farmer’s daughter.  Working for an electric cooperative keeps me interested in the weather!  Just what will Tropical Storm Isaac mean to our members and employees this weekend?
  5. Walking is good for the soul.  Maybe that is why our shoes have “soles?”  Go ahead, groan…it’s how I roll.
  6. Cookies!!  Homemade (although I do love me some Oreos).  Baking cookies warms the heart and home.  There is just something about a kitchen-in-use, cookie sheets, cookies cooling and watching people try to eat cookies that they know are too darn hot to handle … yet they pop them in their mouth.  One time when the boys were little, I had set the timer to remind myself to shut off the water spigot I was filling the cow trough with.  The timer dinged and Dakota ran to the kitchen and said, “Are the cookies done?”  Talk about Pavlov’s dog … drooling when the bell rings!  I had to make some cookies that day to rid myself of the guilt I felt at that moment!
