Summer is so…so…unstructured, isn’t it? I guess that is a good thing, because we all need some “unstructured,” right? But what about us ADD-types? I’m beginning to think that there is such a thing as TOO much unstructured.
My exercising, for instance, has gone the way of the dinosaur. During regular homeschooling months, I always fit the exercising right into part of my daily schedule. Now, I just wait for the wind to blow my stair-stepper in my direction (so far, the winds are pretty calm here). Oh well, I’d prefer to hike and dance and walk to the library and do more non-exercisy-type things anyway.
I AM, however, being consistent with my No-S diet. I’m not really weighing because I really want to concentrate more on it being a new way of eating than just a way to “lose weight.” But my pants are already a little less snug, so I’m thinking it is having some positive side effects!
In other news, we still haven’t found our girl. Golly I miss that black cow of a dog! When we go to feed our other dog and see both bowls sitting there, waves of depression come over all of us. We’re still getting the occasional call, though. And checking the Animal Shelter about every two days. I haven’t completely given up…but almost. (Sniff.)
My cousin won the title of “Coon Dog Day Queen.” What do you mean you haven’t heard of the “Coon Dog Day Queen”??!! Well, suffice it to say that here in Redneck Central, we DO have a Coon Dog Day, where we celebrate those coon-tracking dogs that hunters are so fond of. And that celebration is topped off by electing a Coon Dog Day Queen. And my cousin won this year. And she will ride on a float or some such thing tomorrow in the Coon Dog Day parade. And yes, I will be front and center to see it. Wouldn’t you??
In sadder news, my grandmother is passing away. My 98-year-old Nana who in my eyes will always have the title of “Most Incredible Cook” in the entire southeast. Let’s just say my Nana’s pecan pie could have put Paula Deen to shame. She was just that good. And she taught me just about everything I know in the kitchen…AND how to play bridge, to boot. I know its almost her time, but I’ve had just about enough of goodbyes this week.
So how’s all that for random? I dare you to make a connection between any or all of it. I certainly was too lazy to today. Have a great weekend, everyone!!
