Hello, Happy Sunday and Welcome to the Farm! I sincerely hope all of you have had a good enough week to make up for mine. Here it is, the middle of June, and we're still raining. Not only raining, but still cold and windy most of the time. This last week we've had several thunder and lightning storms accompanied by that frog drowning rain. You know, that rain that if a drop hits you you're going to get a concussion? Seriously? This is totally impinging on my painting the kitchen project! Grrrrrr. Come on weather, straighten out your act here! I've got things to do!

One of those things would have been grocery shopping, but I did it last week. Thank goodness! On our one good day! Trust me folks, that was a fluke. Pure and simple - it was a fluke. I was very thankful. Hauling out groceries in the pouring rain is not my idea of fun and I was a very happy camper that I didn't have to wring out all my groceries. That just might have sent me over the edge. Although hubby thinks I've already gone over it, he's wrong. I'm teetering, but I'm still up there.

What does this have to do with today's blog, you ask? EVERYTHING. And I do mean everything. The main reason I grocery shop is not to get food. Oh heck no!! The reason I grocery shop is to get those nice heavy paper bags that I sack my groceries in. What would I want food for? I've got things to do, remember? And that means working on stuff, not cooking dinner or letting anyone else eat. Really, people, what do I look like here, a wife or something? Pffbbbt. No, I've got my eyes on those brown paper bags that are heavy enough to hold a baby in (Ok, possibly a baby doll, but hey, that's a baby, right?) and lug it around. Yes, I have plans!

All I know is that this is a fairly easy process, although a little time consuming, but I love the end result. My kitchen is starting to look warm and comfy, and like someone actually lives here and cares about it. For a while, at least until I get all the counter tops done, I'll be saying "paper please" at the grocery store. :) Who knows, I might even find other things to do with them.
