Hard at Work

There are lots of things I should be doing right now. But I'm not. I'm just sitting here on my butt in front of a computer. Wasting valuable time, accomplishing little. I could be folding laundry, doing dishes, vaccuuming, dusting...picking up clutter. I could be reading my Bible. I could be sorting yard sale items and pricing things. I could be baking cookies or painting. I could be hanging up that picture I've been meaning to hang. Yup. I'm being pretty useless.

This, by the way, is a picture of Mukles (pronounced Moo-klees). He's relaxing with a beer. He deserves to relax because he has been hard at work in his garden, and serving chicken that he grilled himself to a myriad of guests. (Mukles is from the country of Jordan...in case you are wondering about the foreign name)

My washing maching has just indicated that it is done. That is my cue that I should get moving.

I've been a bum today too, although I did empty the laundry basket at the end of our bed, exercised a bit and took a shower. I think I did some dishes this morning too...There is much to be done here. I need to take Steven to his art class and bake a dessert for tonight.

I have felt pretty useless but I did get up and take several children to VBS, dropped Nathan of to help James, ran through the rain to buy water in BJ's (go figure), visited Mom and Dad for a bit and then went back to church where my little grandson fell asleep on my shoulder. I sat with him for over an hour while he slept. Now I am finally home again and need to do my morning chores now that it is nearly 2:30 pm.
