From Dawn til Dusk.

So, I actually had to look that up. Is it Dusk to Dawn or Dawn to Dusk.
And then I started humming Delta Dawn what's that flower you have on ...
And then I couldn't remember which raspy voiced singer sang it ... Helen Reddy, Tanya Tucker, Bette Midler.
Of course then I needed to know why it was written ... (this is the way my brain works) ... I found the following in an article;
In 1972, Helen wrote a feminist anthem, "I Am Woman," which became a number one record and earned her a Grammy. Her next single, "Peaceful," was also a hit. And then came the high water mark of her career: an enigmatic number, "Delta Dawn."
"It's a song about women's liberation," explained co-composer Alex Harvey. "That was a big deal at the time, and I guess it still is.
"I like images a lot, and mystery, and I think the mystery of 'Delta Dawn' is what pulled it together. The song basically came out of a feeling that I had for my mother, but I'm not really sure. "

But really, all I was trying to get at was how I have been so out of my mind busy from morning to night. Today, for example started at 6:30am and I am sitting here at 10:15pm trying to think of the funny things that happened through out the day.

Mostly, we were gone all day - which means my house is completely trashed. I can't help but wonder how that math works. If you are gone most of the day shouldn't the house be clean? It makes sense doesn't it?? Apparently not in the Farmer house.

Mr. Farmer is starting a new business venture. Read: more work for Mrs. Farmer. I am ok with it, it will eventually help us a great deal ... but like anything, the initial start is a wee bit painful.

At the same time, it appears that my homecookin' business (I use the term loosely) has become more popular. I hesitate to mention it because ... well you know ... I just might curse it. I am still tryin' to figure out pricing and what not ... but there is certain potential.

This is how AngelBaby is entertainin' herself so that MaaMaa can do this little post - she has a tall kitchen bag (it is clean) and is repeatedly pushing her feet through the bottom to make as many holes as she can ... did I mention that she was naked? She wanted a sink bath but SweetiePie is in the shower, the dishwasher is runnin' (how? you would think dishes would be minimal since we were gone all day!) and HeartBreaker took a shower before SweetiePie (of course she did 'cause she is the oldest and she is entitled ....) so there is very little hot water left -- whew all that just to explain why AngelBaby is runnin' naked.

So, Britney got out of Rehab today. Has it been a month? Wonder how long she can make it? Gonna say a prayer for her tonight ... I really hope that she is just snugglin' up with those babies and realizing how much she needs to be there for them.

Angelina, Angelina, Angelina ... he is such a sweet boy, so brave ... blah, blah, blah ... oh Brad - yea he had to work and the blob was with her Father on the set every day ... Harsh often? Again, I am hoping that they didn't print the entire statement ... that somewhere she says something that makes it seem ... what? I don't know ... just not so harsh.

Sadly Calvert DeForest (Larry "Bud" Melman) from David Letterman's show passed away today. He was so funny on the show. Back when I could stay up that late and I wasn't concerned about cable corrupting my children's brains ... well, I really liked to watch the skits that he and Letterman did together ...

Ok, now I am gettin' all loopy and I need to get some slumber ...

Hope all is well with y'all!

To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.
Proverbs 8:13

God is not only our protector; he is our helper. Even when our world seems to be crashing around us, he is there. He will deliver us from death or deliver us through death. He will deliver us from evil or he will deliver us to overcome evil. Our task is to trust that in the midst of our earthquakes and tidal waves that we are not alone and not abandoned.

What you cookin, Frannie? I'm waiting for a recipe. Food is a great way to get out of the doldrums, that is, if you don't overeat all the good food. :)
