Monday Ramblings

I am having a bit of writer’s block and my brain doesn’t seem to have anything to contribute to my blog today. It’s funny how sometimes I sit and think up several things to write about and then there are times like now when I can’t think of a thing to add.

The torrid love affair between my wife trading neighbors is still going strong although the two down the street seem to be more “engaged” than the couple next door. From the local gossip I’ve been hearing they get a bit carried away in the front yard sometimes.

Our church had to “let go” our youth director because he showed up at youth group three sheets to the wind. My daughter had returned from church camp with a bug so she didn’t attend that day. A few attentive parents noticed his behavior and stayed to help out and then afterwards drive him home. He seemed like a responsible person when we hired him and I wonder what is going on in his life that has prompted the change of conduct.

I don’t have a problem with drinking as most of you well know, but there is a time and place for such things and a youth meeting at church isn’t one of them.

My pastor has three bulging ruptured discs in her back and has to have surgery. She’s been in severe pain for a while now. I don’t know if she had an injury or just what caused it. She is only in her late 30’s and not over weight so I was surprised to hear about this.

Nothing terribly eventful going on at my house right now which depending on your view of things could be good. I’m leaning towards the idea that it’s a good thing while my teenage daughter would be happy for a bit more excitement. Sometimes boring is nice.

My husband bought a smoker that looks to me like a rectangle speaker. Jennifer thinks it looks like a small refrigerator. Not at all what I would think an outdoor cooking device should resemble.

I haven’t seen the three gray pigeons that were hanging around my bird feeder. I guess they have moved on. They were fun to watch for a change. We have a lot of cardinals, chickadees and blue jays. After Mark trimmed up the black jack tree we don’t have as many scissor tail fly catchers. They had a nest there. Hopefully he didn’t upset them too much and they will rebuild.

I haven’t seen as many squirrels this year. Not sure why.

Okay, now I’m just rambling. I will try to come up with something better for Friday’s blog. I never have any trouble finding material for Wednesday so not to worry there.

I hope y’all have a good week. ~peace~
