I feel so down today. It is as if the joy has been sucked from my being instantaneously. In all honesty, it's probably hormones - but gosh, I don't like days like this! All I want to do is sleep and be alone for a while. I'm tired and I'm cranky and I don't want to deal with anyone or anything. There's no chance of that happening! Nope, life goes on whether I want to participate or not.
Last night I finished At Home on LadyBug Farm and it was just as good as the first book. And now I have to wait until October for the next book. Oh, and Sarah Ban Breathnach has a new book coming out in December called Peace and Plenty!
The girls and I went to the library. My reading list now includes:
The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield
The Shack by William Paul Young
The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
A Light in the Window by Jan Karon
Checked the garden today and there are two little cucumbers on the vine! I can see where bugs have been eating the bell pepper leaves, so it's time to take care of that right away. I recently read that you can fill a spray bottle with water and a good squirt of dishwashing soap. Shake it up and spray your garden plants to repel pests. I'm going to give it a try.
To repel mosquitoes when you're outside, put a dryer sheet in your pocket. They don't like it. One of Alfred's co-workers told him this trick and he grew up on the Louisiana bayous. I buy the cheapest dryer sheets I can find.
May tomorrow be a brighter day!
