These are the Days of Our Lives...
got my teeth cleaned
washed the car
emailed and read some blogs
vacuumed and mopped the kitchen
took a check to the post office
made a color copy at the library of a knitting pattern for my sister
stopped in to the doctor to see about a burning in my abdomen but he was out to lunch
checked out an unofficial biography of Stephanie Meyers from the library
bought 4 cans of fly eradicator spray on sale for $1.99 each
bought TWO miraculous fly traps (still promising a whole blog on "Flies and Me")
hung both fly traps
googled macrame plant hanger instructions (always looking for ways to embrace my inner hippie)
read a printout Paco placed in front of me to torment me, I know!! 2 trips to Paris in March costing less than $1,000 each!!!!
talked on the phone to a new teacher I'll be working with this year
observed all manner of bird craziness while standing on my deck talking on the phone
asked two men in the hardware store if they'd noticed any deviant bird activity--they looked at me like I was a deviant bird as well!
baked a sourdough chocolate cake using my 150 year old sourdough start which I've been rejuvenating and feeding for two days!
told Paco I would thin the carrots but didn't
finished an audio book of Orson Scott Card's Treasure Box. Weird. 9 hours of my life I gave to it!! Nine!!!
almost finished a birthday gift I'm sewing for my friend Les
ran to the post office (yes, twice in one day--I don't pretend to be efficient) to mail a pattern to my sister and a nursery school book to my daughter
planted 4 new perennials in my garden and added peat moss to a bunch of stuff
attended a church picnic where we got rained on and all ate too much
got the lowdown from newly 9 year olded James from my Sunday School class on his birthday trip to Yellowstone
sat in my computer chair to blog--smelling new rain and what it does to new mown hay..and listening to the birds continue their zaniness!!! Actually one of the guys in the hardware store suggested the birds might sense that an earthquake was imminent, so...you've been warned.
watched the reddest of red sunsets
And that is a Day of My Life. What about YOU????
