Here are the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…
I went to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower with the girl this weekend. It was quite an experience. Brought back depressing memories of my high school years(did anyone really enjoy highschool?). Of course, there is so much more that today’s teenagers have to deal with. I’m so glad I am past that stage but I worry how my children will handle these years.
The girl feels a bit like Charlie – an outsider looking in. Feeling like she doesn’t quite fit in or measure up to the others. Why is it so hard for some people to see the great things inside themselves? What can a parent do to help??
I’m really struggling today with my calorie limit. Yesterday I had no problem but today all I can think about is food. This is truly tough for me.
We did quite a bit in the orchard part of the garden this week. The mulch and weed fabric have broken down and the weeds took over. I did not keep up with them in the summer and now there are tons of them everywhere. I’m pulling everything up and dumping it. Then I’m going to put down more weed fabric and some soil and plant some ground cover seeds. I’m trying to decide between microclover or thyme or a mix of both.
I’m slowly getting organized and getting the paperwork off the desk and where it needs to be.
How about you? What have you been up to lately?
