Gross Smell!

As I was coming in the back door of the mudroom, a couple days ago I smelled some kind of strange smell. I couldn't make out what it was so I didn't think too much about it. The next day it was a little stronger and Hubby asked "do you smell somthing out here". Yes, I said, but I can't figure out what it is. Suzy and Josh were both here and Suzy said she smelled somthing when she came in. Ron asked me if I thought maybe it was my Lavender that was drying...but no way does Lavender smell like that! After the kids left we started looking around the mudroom and couldn't find anything!!!! Then Ron looked at our freezer and said "you don't think?" as he opened the lid. OH MY!!!! What a smell!!! Some how the freezer had been unpluged and every thing in it was BAD!!! Big ole turkey, a ham, and I don't know what else. When that smell came out of that freezer it hit every fly in this town and they were all over the windows and the screen door. Ron was sweeping them up with the sweeper, there were so many, and I went to the store after fly spray. Needless to say, we spent today cleaning that freezer and that mudroom. WOW, what a mess......but we got it done and moved the empty freezer into the kitchen. Now I have more space in the mudroom and am in the process of fixing up my tole painting area so I can get back into painting.

Drying my Lavender

I have no clue if I am doing this right or not.
It seems to be working. I put them out on my front porch during the day to dry and bring
them in each night. I have to put them up high
on a shelf in hubby's TV room so Sam Cat will
not get into them, because he sure does try!

If it works, it works, if not, so what.....

My Lavender

This looks like a weed patch but it is
really my Lavender. I have been
trying to harvest it this week-end.
In the past I have just let it bloom,
dry and drop to the ground. This
year I am trying to harvest it and
dry it, not sure why or what I will
do with it but I am doing it. Hubby
says the whole house smells like
Lavender which is OK with me ;]
Two Days Not To Worry About

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry;
two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday

We cannot undo a single act we performed; We cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow, with all its possible adversities,
its burdens, its large promise, and its poor performance;

Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day, Any person can fight the battle of just one day

It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities
Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad,
it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday
and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time.
