Blame it on the Moon!

I love this painting.  Love the moon's happy face and the cat is intrigued.  
The farmer is probably about to retire to the bed after a long day on the farm and a decent supper.  I bet he had minute steak and gravy, mashed potatoes and little green peas, and a glass of iced tea.  And banana pudding for dessert.  lol  

Can you tell that is what I wish my next meal was?  I'm hungry for mashed potatoes and peas for the most part.  We have a really good meat and three restaurant but the parking is tight and I don't want to risk the dings in the side of my door for a meat and three platter.  

I'm not sure what to take to lunch today.  It's supposed to rain or storm and I don't want to go out to eat.  It takes too much time anyway b/c I have to drive out of the area.  Otherwise you risk getting involved in someone's shoot out or drug deal or someone comes up and asks you to be their woman.  Or you are just flat at the mercy of people that can't even think enough to take your order and fill it properly b/c they are on whatever drug they can find.  ::ugh:: I hate that area!  From the evidence of my orders in that area, they don't know a french fry from an apple pie.  And I don't need either anyway. 

I guess I'll take chili.  I have some frozen.  

Well it's Friday.  I was able to get a lot accomplished yesterday and that made me feel much much better.  I was beginning to be worried. Then I realized it was a full moon and that it wasn't going to be nutzoid forever.  The week before a full moon is always rambunctious.  The world becomes like an unruly toddler who won't go down for its nap.  And so everything goes awry.  Accidents happen, people are unsettled, moody, needy, and as I say "the world turns upside down on it's axis" or it's like we are in a snow globe that has been turned upside down. 

But now that the full moon approaches, somehow the calmness returns.  By a day or two before - it's already back to somewhat normal.  I felt the calm yesterday and was able to accomplish much as everyone's needs and demands and problems were solved or met. 

I have felt a little down this week for some reason.  I guess it's the lows of coming back to the norm after a bout of travel adventures. Not that the travel was that adventurous.  But it is a change up from the day to day moan and groan of "that area".   George has seemed a bit moody or occupied as well and of course I read personally into that and think it's about me.   Then going through all the cards on Monday from that box downstairs, and I could feel the love pouring out from the letters in my hands even without reading the words of all those people who invested hours of time writing letters to ME!!!. Our world is just so different now.  I just don't think anyone loves and cares for me now as much as my Mam-ma did.  Such a loving person, attentive, and caring, and nurturing.  I remember the day we buried her.  It was so hard to let her go b/c I think then I knew in my heart that there would be no one on this earth that would ever love me like she did.  She was so invested in me - in my heart.  I miss her so much.  But yet she is still here somehow.  So all that made me sad.  
And then there was work, just overflowing and busy and having to work later each day and then getting home later and then not having much spare time and feeling behind everywhere.  I think it just made me tired and spent by the time I got home.  And there was no time to do anything and then before you get your sleep out, the alarm is set to start over again.  Just crazy busy week. 

I really need a vacation day I think.  But, I've had to save most of them for our travel.  I will have some for Christmas as well.  A day here and there to shop and wrap.  Although really - just not planning to do a lot of shopping this year for personal gift items unique to each person.  I don't think we'll be going to the extent we have in the past.  Most everyone else is doing gift cards and half the family mad at one another.  And most of the kids are married and gone.  The joy is gone for the extended family as far as big family gatherings on either side.  Our own family however, is another story.  We will be living it up as always with Katy and Cody and with Mom if she will come - but I think we will probably be traveling some down there to see Mom.  No one will want to come to our house as everyone likes to do their own thing now. I get it.  We do too.  But if any traveling done - it'll be on us. So I will still need some time off to do everything and get everything done.  So I'm sparing my days for that. 

Coffee is good this morning.  It's Friday.  I need to try and pull out of my funk.  I'm not sure what it is exactly but the above mentioned is all I can think of.  Just feeling in a rut of sorts I guess.  Not much to make me happy but plenty of annoyances around to take me the other way.  Or we could just blame it on the moon, eh? It just seems easier that way! But, definitely still a lot to be thankful for.  We wouldn't know the good days if we didn't have the bad, right?
And I'm off of here.  


  1. Some call it the summertime blues. We all get it about this time of year. The busyness of past days and thoughts of Autumn soon to be on the way. I've been enjoying the quieter days of summer, but once fall comes it all tends to speed up with the holidays on the forefront. Glad you had a great day yesterday and hope today is a Fantastic Friday!

  2. I love that picture as well Sonya the moon looks as if he is just staring down at us hushing us to sleep.....that's such a nice thought. I will think of that tonight when I go to bed, the sky is clear so I should be able to see the. Moon, I will smile to it in thanks for always being there. I'm sad to think how unsettled you feel at the moment, it's hard when George is probably feeling exactly the same as thinking he dosnt appreciate you as he is not always on the same level as you are, and he probably thinking you don't appreciate him as you always feel whacked getting back from work. ...trying times for sure. But the new month has arrived and new adventures are ahead, try to leave .july behind and live in August, I hope it cools down for you soon, just as I hope warmer days would come back to us !!! Night night. God Bless. Just wish we could pop in and visit ...

  3. What is it about mashed potatoes that makes them comfort food? sorry you have to be wary of the area where you work. makes it frustrating for sure. wish you had a vacation day to ease the burdens.
