footprints..

when we take a step, we leave a print...
every single time...
when we love, we leave a print...
when we hate, we leave a print...
every single time...
when we give and help and hug, we leave a print...
when we get angry, ignore the broken and say its not my job...
we leave a print...
every single time...
we leave a mark where ever we go...
everything we do...
everyone we touch...
every single time...
every minute of every day for our entire lives...
we have left millions of prints...
every single minute...
and people see your prints...
in what you do, what you say, how you live...
every single time...
so the question is...
where do they lead?
every single time?


the world is broken...
and the only way to fix it...
is to leave better footprints...
every single time...

guilty...

of being where she isn't supposed to be...
and she knows it!
that's her...
"but mom" look...
Craig named her Cookie...
I call her Goober...
have a fun day...

now back to your local news...

big things happening in our small town...
the last of the new windows going in at the school...

still doing clean up after last week's storm...
this is in the lake park...
we have 4 parks...
in town...

I think they will have to cut it all down this time...
that wound is just too big for it to heal and the tree will die...

and this building is being renovated for the Paris Clinic to have a doctor's office in our town...
no more driving all that way for the easy stuff!
they will even provide next day prescription delivery to this facility...
I wonder if I could get a whopper brought in, too?
this should be up and running by fall...
just in time for flu season...
I can't wait....

so there you go...
the big goings on in a small town on the prairie...
;o)

blessings for your day!

we got rain...

it went from humid, dark and rainy...
Canadian geese...

to sunny, hot and steamy...
I shot a buck!

we got a good shower right before lunch...
.6 worth...
enough not to have to water...

good thing...
I took so many aspirin and ibuprofen between 2am and 9:30 am...
there was nothing sore about it...
it turned to pain...

then the evening was fairly good...
but here I am again...
in the wee hours of the morning...
hurting...
so took some ibuprofen and waiting for them to work so I can head back to bed...
left shoulder and the shoulder blade up into the neck...
I did too much last weekend...
but I really feel good...
I know that probably doesn't make any sense...
but I have energy and just feel good in spite of the shoulder...

dew point is in the 70s and its supposed to heat up the rest of the week...
the hot part of summer has arrived, or will...
got several inside projects lined up...
and will work outside in the early mornings and in the evenings...
I did clean the deck yesterday...
got some inside stuff done last night after supper...
need to hit the laundry today...
hampers are full...

have good days...

I was sore beyond words...

when I crawled out of bed yesterday morning...
but pain meds got me back out there...

Charlie peeing where I was going to sit...
had to move operations a bit to the south...
but we got it all done...

5 trips total to the city dump...
and we weren't hit bad at all, not like some were around here...

not many left of these at all...
a handful, scattered all over...
just one more day of them...

I sat under the maples in the back and started on the next project...
I did get that all raked up back there...
its a start...

MR WIGGLES loves a good dirt bath...

got stuff done outside and some stuff inside...
made spaghetti, cleaned out the fridge, and did some laundry...

he follows me everywhere...

the bakers rack that Craig painted...
he picked the color...
not bad...
;o)
