Husband is out of town and I have been puttering about. I cut my bangs myself and they don’t look horrible. It probably would have been a good idea to go to the person who usually cuts my hair but that would mean going out. I hate going out. I also reseasoned all my cast iron which I intended to do on Saturday but didn’t get to it until today. They are currently cooling in the oven.

What else? Yesterday my son and I went out to practice his driving. He is getting very good and I will not worry about him. He is a very careful and thoughtful person. He always has been. This was the boy that would stand at the coffee table at two years old and do 100 piece puzzles. He would work on them for hours. After driving we came back to my place I had turned on Little House on the Prairie. Now, when my kids were little I could not afford cable TV so all we had were DVD’s. Little House on the Prairie were some of the DVD’s we had and we watched them over and over and over again. Even though he is an adult he wanted to watch a couple of episodes with me. See? Is this the type of person that will drive recklessly?

Our neighbour is mowing her lawn. I need to do ours. It has been raining but there’s also been a lot of sun so it’s growing really fast. It needs to be cut at least one more time before I won’t need to do it again until spring. I am fussy about the lawn. It’s the first thing you see when you look at a house and I like the lawn to look nice.

Tonight I’m going to my woman’s support group for women who have experienced abuse and trauma. I love this group. It starts with a discussion on a topic like self-care or safety or gratitude. Then we do an art project. It’s the best part of my week even though it involves going out.

Do you remember when I mentioned that my daughter is now dating a boy that she used to be friends with when they were small? His mom must have taken this picture. They are about 5 here. I look at this picture and forget how tiny she was. She looks like she is closer to 3. She was in the 3rd percentile for years. My god, wasn’t she cute? So was her boyfriend. Awww!

  1. You are so smart to go to that group.
    And your story and picture remind me of when my daughter Jessie was a little girl. She and the little boy next door practically lived together. In some ways, I think he was her first husband. It was so sweet and so precious.

  2. What an adorable picture. They grow up too fast.

    I thought my son to drive. I still can’t believe it. We are of the same temperament and I can’t believe we didn’t kill each other. Also, the car was a stick shift. He was a terrible driver for a couple of years, which is about the norm for new drivers… especially teenage drivers. Now he’s very careful.

    So glad that you get a lot out of your class.

    • My son has actually had driving lessons. I am a decent driver but we are also both the same and I would be way too anxious that I was teaching him wrong.

  3. A few things….that picture is stinkin adorable! I wish we had some of your rain.
    And finally, I am so glad that you are going to that group. It sounds amazing and I love that you are doing some really great self care. You deserve it.♥♥♥

  4. I love that your son watches Little House with you. He clearly is of very good taste and sensitivity like his Mum. What a cute photo, your daughter was so tiny yes. How sweet they are dating now and have that photo. I’m glad you are going to a women’s group it sounds amazing and helpful. How strange your seasoning cast iron pans brings back memories of when I had some and seasoned them I had forgotton.
