Thursday the 27th

I can’t believe it’s the end of June already.  Here are some thoughts for Random 5 Friday!

1.  I have not been keeping up with my 51 in 501 goals.  Last weekend I did check my goal to participate in a Fun, Run and Walk off my list.  I am thinking that my chiropractic session might have to work towards my intentions for a massage.  I updated my list and have accomplished 37 goals and crossed off 3 that are not going to happen.  I still have until September to work on the last 10.

2.  It feels great to have a couple big projects behind me!  The deck is stained and I have  windows and barn doors freshened up with white paint.  Cleaning the chicken coop still lingers.  I told J  I refuse to tackle that one by myself.  Yesterday, I painted the trim and coop door.

3.  I know I shouldn’t do this, but I don’t comb or pick through my hair everyday.  I wash it 2-3 times a week.  If I know I will be doing a dirty job, I run my fingers through my hair and tighten up my ponytail.  The days I do wash my hair are a treat.

4.  Yesterday afternoon I harvested some rhubarb.  I made a Rhubarb Pie with a graham cracker crust.  It’s the first time I tried a graham cracker crust with this recipe; delicious!

5.  While I was chopping up rhubarb I visited with my Mom on the phone.  We had a wonderful conversation.  Sometimes, a girl just needs to hear Mom’s voice.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

    You have been busy! Love the purple flowers and rhubarb pie, cake, sauce. You get the idea 🙂

  2. I talk to my mom on the phone quite often!! 🙂 At least a few times a week, and I don’t live all that far from her.
    I’ve been getting some staining & sealing done.. feels good to cross things off the list, but the list always seems to continue growing in the other direction as I do!

    It is a great feeling getting those odd jobs done!

  4. Robyn, you are one up on me. I wash my hair maybe once per week. It’s long and seems to do better with less washing.

    Cleaning the chicken coops? Ugh. I need to do that! Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    When I was very young – I was taken to hospital – just dropped off because my parents were very busy. There was a younger girl in the bed across the room . . . her mom, her doctor and some nurses were paying close attention to her – she was just beginning to wake up from surgery. When I awoke – the little girl was gone . . BUT, her mother was there with me. Her mother said, “My daughter is happy at home, enjoying bowls of ice cream with her brothers and her dad. I’m staying here with you. A little girl needs her mother when she is in hospital.” That mom stayed with me for three days – eventually my dad returned to pick me up . . . I was too little to ask for name and address – BUT, my heart always holds here close . . . . It’s true – sometimes a girl just needs a mothers voice.
    love & love,

      Oh my goodness, I don’t know what to say. What a special Lady that was to stay and comfort you.

    how funny! 3. my head would itch too much. I miss rhubarb!

  7. Beautiful spiderwort. I sure wish I had some of that rhubarb pie you made.

    I don’t wash my hair every day either. Drier hair does not need it. The exception was when I was a competitive swimmer. I will comb it out when it is wet in the shower, regardless of whether it is washed or not. Easier to deal with the knots that way.

    These are fun! You have a large number of goals. I think you’re doing very well to accomplish as many as you have! And I talk with my mom often — can’t imagine not having her around. She’s my biggest encourager!

  10. Lovely photos! I love that you’re meeting your goals. I really need to get moving and do something like that. I just kind of float around from one day to the next knowing that there are things I’m dying to do, but I’m not actually doing anything about it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Can’t wait to see your photos when the photo challenge starts next week! Have a great weekend, Robyn!

  11. So many things to do and so little time. Life in the city is sometimes much the same. Here it’s watering lawns, weeding flower beds, feeding all the cats & dogs, taking the grand child to swimming lessons, housework & well you get the picture.
    I am happy you had a lovely chat with your mom. I’m lucky to live right next door to mine. – Your flowers are pretty and I like that first picture very much.
