|Finally got a hummingbird pic after many do-overs!|
My week was kind of like that. I like to see the positive side of things, but after this past week I just want a do-over. It started a week ago Sunday when I almost burned my house down. Yeah, I wasn't going to mention it, but now that the trauma of it is over I can talk about it. I was tired from not sleeping much on vacation, took a 3 hr. nap, got up to cook some supper and put some oil in a pan. Yeah, you know what happened. I had no clue why I even would walk away from hot oil in a pan, but I got distracted and one thing led to another and pretty soon I was playing piano -- for like 15 minutes! No fire, but really close and black smoke. Melted the front of my microwave and ruined my nice Pampered Chef Wok. I had a bologna sandwich for supper - I was too afraid to heat anything up. Thankfully that was the worst of the week.
Then, since I have been spending too much money at the vet for Turk's boogar nose, I decided not to get my toes painted this month and do it myself. It's been a long time since I have even tried because I can't see my toes very well anymore. Anyway, I had this all planned but decided to wait until Saturday so I could get some cottonballs at the grocery store. So I am all set up on my coffee table and I had a thought that if I saw my daughter doing this on my coffee table like this, I would have yelled at her. When I was a kid I was at my best friend Mary's house and we spilled fingernail polish remover on her dresser and it took the finish off. I have never approved of the way my daughter does it. Obviously she hasn't ruined anything yet. SO, sure enough I decided to just be very careful and reasoned that there weren't any kids around to spill it... and then Turk jumped up (from under me) to scare Tazer so he could steal her bone. Yup, spilled it all over the coffee table and almost on my kindle. And yup, took the finish off my coffee table. I guess that's gonna cost me a little more than a pedicure.
There may have been something else, but the last thing that happened was that I got a really good deal on eggs: BOGO. We didn't exactly need 2 doz extra eggs, but it was such a good deal. I left them on the counter all night. Actually a good 24 hrs. Thought about it and decided I didn't want to chance Salmonella poisoning for $1.50.
Last week just made me tired. Even without an especially weary week (and then it was so darn hot on top of it!), I just really do like Mondays to start out fresh!
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.-Lamentations 3:22
