The Temporary Trade Off

I didn’t log on at all yesterday. It was a busy day but I used my extra hour wisely: I slept.
I did a variety of things all day without completing anything. If they gave out an award for that I would so win it. With honors.

The mother has been continuing the “reclamation” efforts. There’s still a microwave (and paint and tools) under the dining room table, and a kitchen cart in the livingroom, but it’s starting to look more like a house each day. In a way, it’s kind of scary.

Speaking of scary, we did manage to take down and put away the Halloween decorations. And the mother managed to drag more out – for fall. Since my pumpkin never became a jack-o-lantern, it fits right in.

I washed Ladybird. Poor thing had dirt and leaves encrusted along the sides after going down semi-flooded streets the other morning on the way to the bus.

And, I finally put away my laundry and started clearing out summer clothes. (About half of my laundry qualified.) Funny thing is, yesterday and now a second day of November seem to be warmer than most days in October. Go figure. You'll get no complaints here!

Of course, when I go home tonight, it will already be dark and by the time I get there, pitch black. This morning though the sun is out and it’s bright for my commute in. Sadly, that won’t be the case for long. So I’m going to enjoy it while I’ve got it.

I could be cruel and plant a John Denver earworm in your head. Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy. But I wouldn't do that, now would I?

I like that song! Glad to see we both used our extra hour the same way! The sun all weekend and again this morning was great. But it will be a bummer to drive home in the dark tonight. Happy Monday to all!

Sunshine in eyes won't make me cry.
It is warm here too. I mowed Friday. Took a walk last night and been lazy all day. It is almost hot. But I'm not complaining.

Sounds like its time to start another project missy.

Hows that bathroom coming?

It was nice to see the sun and the harvest moon tonight is amazing! We spent yesterday helping out some friends get their house ready for new floors. Of course, that makes me want to start new projects around here again!

MM -- Never been a big JD fan but there are some lyrics I've always thought were pretty. That song in particular. The sun is AWESOME!

Karen -- It was cooler today but 70 yesterday. I'm lovin' it!

Victoria -- It really DOES look a lot like a house and I'm glad to have it back. Um, not time to START anything but I sure have several that I must FINISH though!
