Day Full of the Little Things

7:00 AM Woke up and got the working girl out of bed. She has Drivers Ed class today.

7:00-7:50 AM Facebook sucked an hour of my life (It's the little things). Listened to writer's podcast while I played. That's my redemption. (It's the little things).

7:50 AM Went to see why Chels hadn't been picked up yet. Double checked the schedule. Class starts at 8:30, not 8:00. Put crock pot of fresh figs and strawberries on low to stew all day. (It's the little things.)
Last night I decapitated them and tucked them into a bed of sugar so they'd be ready in the morning. 

8:00-8:40 AM Showered and washed hair. Made pot of coffee. Threw in load of laundry. Went outside with new puppy and waited for her to pee. She didn't. (It's the little things).

8:40-9:00 AM Blogger! and rain storm. (It's the little things).

9:00-9:50 AM Got ready for day. Coffee with Oma and Opa. Checked on stewing figs and strawberries. (It's the little things.)

10:00-2:00 PM Office Work!

2:00-3:45 PM Laundry, feed chickens, walk puppy, and began cleaning out a box that's been sitting in the sitting room for some two years or so, or more. Threw away most of it. (It's the little things.)

3:50-4:00 PM Went to get girls from Drivers Ed class.

4:00-6:00 PM Computer repair guy showed up to take care of virus. Mark and his brother canned the stewed figs and bathed the jars. Slow cooker method really isn't reliable. Last night it seemed so simple, so easy but the sugar settled at the bottom despite folding during the day and the juice did not syrup. It had to be poured into a pot and boiled again to distribute sugar and thicken the juice. It's quicker and more practical to just do it the old fashion way. Sometimes we have to experiment with things before we realize that the old fashion way was the best way all along. (It's the little things.)

6:00 PM Ate supper (fried chicken, salad, Hawaiian rolls, mac & cheese) and watched the news, especially about Cory Monteith. This is where I admit that ironically my daughter and I spent the whole month of June watching the first three seasons of Glee. For two people who 'never' watch television, our indulgence in these actors and our admiration for their talent leaves us vested and wounded. 
Life really is all about the little things.
