Just another sloppy, unedited installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…
The weather is so crazy lately – upper 50s, low 60s over the weekend and now it is trying to snow. I did some cleaning up that I didn’t get to at the end of the fall season, weeded some of the beds and pruned some catmint and clematis. Need to decide what to do with the orchard area and then make plans to do it or get it done. Would like to put a bench in somewhere but I’m not really sure where or what kind.
Still having trouble dealing with the changes that school breaks bring. Can’t seem to get myself to stay on schedule when the boy is home. I need to start getting ready for the first hundred day challenge of this year. I’ve been doing fairly good with my walking but my sleep has been all over the place and I’ve gone back to eating way too much sugar.
My dad went back into the hospital -some major infections and he has not been taking care of himself. There is only so much my sister can do – if he refuses to eat/drink/take his meds properly then he isn’t going to stay well. I wish I was closer but honestly if he isn’t going to do it for her he probably wouldn’t do it for me either. It’s hard to be a parent to your parent.
I’ve done some decluttering – need to get that posted. I’m going to try to get rid of at least 365 things this year. There is a lot that I can remove and there is certainly a lot my family can get rid of. I’m going to try and get them on board as well. We’ll see how it goes.
Hope you are having a great day wherever you are and I’ll try to be back again soon.

Still have a few mums and geraniums blooming but that’s about it for the garden. Luckily my bathroom cactus has a few buds so there will soon be more flowers in my life again. Still haven’t finished the garden clean up but I’m no longer stressing out about it. Whatever gets done, gets done.
Had a pleasant dinner with the girl, I had been a bit worried that political talk might mar it -she is an ardent anti-Trump fan and my hubby is for Trump, but there wasn’t too much said. I was disappointed that her boyfriend had to work so I still haven’t gotten to meet him. We’ll try again on Thanksgiving since he doesn’t spend it with family.
Finally got all the Halloween stuff put away – feeling a bit bad because I bought new decorations while I’m in the midst of trying to declutter. However, I do love Halloween and we didn’t have many outside decorations. Plus it was something the boy really wanted and it made him happy to arrange everything.
I’m on my fourth day of a ten day detox program that my doctor prescribed. It hasn’t been as bad as I had thought but I will be heading into the three days that are really restricted and that could change my mind. Not sure how much I really believe this will help but hopefully it won’t hurt anything. I was sure I would be dying for sugar but so far it hasn’t been bad at all. In fact at the coffee hour after church I really didn’t struggle at all with skipping the cookies and having some fruit. Hopefully this will help me get a handle on my sugar consumption because I can’t go on eating candy as a meal – just too many bad results from that habit.
I’m off to try and do some decluttering – I’ll be back Friday with my results. Until then have a great day!
