Furlough Day

Today is my first furlough day. A day off work without pay. The bad news is? One day's pay is a pretty good chunk of change. The good news is? One day's pay is a pretty good chunk of change. I am grateful to have a job where I will be paid for the remaining work days this month.

I went to the farmers' market for peaches yesterday. I got a box of peaches, and I also got a box of pears. I canned the pears yesterday. I was planning on canning the peaches today but they aren't ripe enough yet. I hope at least some of them will be ripe enough by this evening to get to work on, and then I can finish the rest of them tomorrow after work.

A sponsee is coming over tomorrow after work. Do you think we can read the big book while peeling, pitting, and slicing peaches?

I am waiting to hear from a friend now, and we are going to go for a hike.

Grateful for another beautiful day of sobriety.

So, your sponsee is going to put up with you? hehe

If you had the BB on CD you could listen to it, then comment or discuss as you put up with each other.

You are handling this with inspiring grace and aplomb. I've had tiny things go wrong lately that I allow to become so big. Thank you for providing an example.

I remember when my mom used to jar peaches and pears like that. MMMMM so good! Enjoy!

I did a lot of peeling, pitting and slicing during my last 3 months of drinking. I remember it well.
Today, you're being paid by God.

The Big Book *is* on audible.com. Then you both can have a new experience.

Please come live with me.
I'll have the toast buttered and ready for the peaches.
