Good Morning –62 degrees outside–sun is shining and I’m set in ‘geter done mode’. First I have to tell you that when I look out the French doors this morning I caught sight of three deer running across my back yard. It was so fast I couldn’t register the sex or size of them.
I wrote a list last night of what to do today. Sometimes I can clear it and other times it is long standing chores which takes more time or energy than I have. But this morning I am on it and making progress. Yesterday at Sam’s Club I bought chicken ( legs, thighs, and tenders) which I separated, sealed, and put in the freezer. While I was down in the mud room I cut up cardboard boxes and packed them to go out for recycling. As an added thing to my list I transferred Finch seed from coffee cans to gallon jugs to make filling the feeder easier. That was three things done.
Now comes the checking statement to figure. This should be fun seeing yesterday’s shopping trip left me roughly $400. lighter. But I did get a new battery for the bathroom scales, a bulb for my directional signal on the truck, ( I’ll get that installed tomorrow), bird seed for Spirit, and lots of groceries (plus staples) for the house. That kind of day wears this old woman out!!!!
This morning I ordered Ink for the new printer/scanner to have on hand. That will be delivered tomorrow.
Of course there is always laundry to do, dishes to catch up on, lunch and dinner to make, (Jay does breakfast on his non dialysis days,) you know the Domestic Goddess stuff. But with only roughly 50 pages to go in King’s novel Dr. Sleep I might get sidetracked temporarily.
It seems my pulling vines off the bushes by the driveway lead to a meeting with what I think was poison ivy (not sure but looks like it) so that has been a problem for the last few days. I do have some cream that doctor gave me for my back and a prescription for the wasp sting that seems to help quiet the inch. I do get into some of the dumbest situations.
I took time the other day to set up the thread for the new lap robe but that is as far as I got on that project. Well that is what is on my plate for today. I hope every thing goes well for you and you remember to smile, and rest a bit.
