What day is it?

Wow. Is it really Tuesday evening? Where did Monday go? I was so exhausted from retreat on Sunday that I went to bed at 8pm and didn't get up until a little after 7am! I slept 11 hours on Sunday night. And I was still groggy!

Two of one-hundred eggs the girls blessed us with in September. One HUNDRED eggs! How cool is that?

Monday consisted of meeting a friend for coffee...working from noon to 5...making corn dogs for dinner (Yes, you read that right. And yes, they were frozen. True confessions.) and taking care of a sick boy. I got everyone to bed, got the coffee set up for the morning and watched Intervention before turning in for the day.
When I woke up this morning I could hear wind and rain outside. LOTS of wind and rain. I decided it would be a good day to stay home, do laundry and work on a special order for 8 Mimi Dolls...witches. I wanted to have a dozen for them to choose from...so far I've got 8 done. Between tending chickens in the rain (which is not fun, by the way), getting chili going in the Crock Pot, laundry, reading blogs, unpacking suitcases from the weekend, I didn't get as much done as I wanted to.
BUT, the good news? It was raining. And it was wonderful. Until I had to go out in it. Oh my goodness...was it ever a mess. It rained ALL DAY LONG. And it rained hard. Streets were flooded...tree branches littered the roads...playgrounds were flooded...both boys were drenched when I picked them up.
So on and on it goes...life, that is. Dinner and kids and laundry and phone calls and prayer requests and dishes and animals and homework...and then all of a sudden the day is drawing to a close. Another day...done. And gone. And another coming at me all too soon. Wednesday...see you tomorrow.

Rain here too. Cold temps. Damp, dark, and dreary. Not what I prefer. It is conducive weather for preparing comfort food. Biscuits and gravy for dinner last night; something my mom used to make on rainy nights. Funny how food can transport you to a different time and place.

100 eggs? That's alot. Our family of 4 uses about 48/mo. What in the world do you do with 100? Please tell.
