Tower of Power
As soon as I catch up with this thing, I'm behind! Speaking of behind, I've been sitting on mine for a long time this morning. It is SOOOO cold & drizzly today. I just don't feel like moving. Soon the little E will be here and her crazy dog too, or maybe not. It's dance day for E and for me it is read-a-book for 3 hours while waiting for her, or hit the spin bike/recumbent/elliptical. What in the world do I choose!?
Times are busy without being too busy. Having 10-12 solid, full weeks off leaves a person with a lot of time to NOT be busy but a need to feel BUSY. Ok, that probably didn't make sense. What I'm saying is, I have guilt over NOT having a million things to do at this very moment. However I do have things that MUST be done before September and some before this weekend. Check it out!
Before July 1st:
sort through clothing
minor grocery shopping
pick up contacts
3 bike rides
Not bad huh? I don't think so, but when there is the possibility of just... snuggling The Willow cat instead, all of those items seem a bit much! :)
Before September 1st
Replace the trim in the house that I took down last summer
Purchase a few books for the classroom
Sort files 1 last time - sift through really carefully!
Toss in a couple of races, some tours, some camping, some __________.
Visit a couple of friends I usually only see during the summer.
There ya have it. The MUST do list. Pathetic huh? Well, since the sun is down, and the Willow is warm, you know where I'm heading! Lists can wait.
p.s. I did pick strawberries yesterday... 10 bags of frozen delights await the long winter and 6 containers of freezer jam. And to think I was beginning to label myself as LAZY????
p.p.s. G bought a new camera for us. I would like to just say for ME.. because I'm really the one who has to have control over it at all times. It is truly hard for me to let go of that control. yep, so ... my point is this --- SOOON, I will not have to recycle old photos & SOOOON I will show you some interesting things like... The Willow Whisker Collection '11, Ali's Bad Hair Day #142, and Rain Damage in Northern Lower Michigan. Stay tuned, and close. Very close.
Sorry, just on more p.p.p.s. I TOTALLY could have shot that power up to the top like G if only I didn't have to sausage myself into that confining black downy vest. Why you say? Why did I sausage myself? Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out. Have a lovely day.
