Just a Filling Station


This Morning I was up bright and early.  I was mindful of all the things I wanted to get done in the kitchen before the day got too hot.  I was busy as I could be when it occurred to me that I don't run a home at all...I run a filling station!

 The cookie jar was empty. 
So I made cookies to fill it up.

John worked all night and he gets up very early and is very hungry when he comes in...
I made biscuits to fill him up.

While I was busy...
I filled the sink.

While I waited on John...
I filled my body with coffee and my soul with strong words to carry me through the day.

After breakfast, I...
filled some empty space in my freezer with packets of fresh butter beans.

I cut off the ends and shucked a dozen and half ears of corn to cream Sunday morning. That job...
filled a big bag with compost.

I made dinner and...
filled the dishwasher.

Clearing the table I had to...
refill the water pitcher for the fridge.

And after all that filling up, I decided it was time to...
fill the coffeemaker one more time.

And I didn't even take a photo of my filling John's lunch bag for work!

But you see, don't you?  I really do run a filling station!

LOL but at least your gas prices aren't too high??? sorry, couldn't resist... yes it seems we as spouses or mothers or grandmothers are always filling something. It does our hearts good knowing that we are capable of doing that.

I like this one. My time is similar and I wondered if you filled the vacuum when you slept, the laundry basket with used kitchen linens and your grocery list with items you used up as you went about your day?

I am loving your little desk area in the kitchen! How great to grab a good word here and there. Where did you find your butter beans? Yum! Angela

As they say, we need to fill a vacuum whether an empty stomach or an empty mind. If there is a space aywhere we fill it with something.
