I get up in the morning about 7:30 and make my cup of coffee and then sit down to read email and catch up. After about an hour I get up to go to the bathroom to start my day. (Wait, how did it get to be 10:00 already?) In the bathroom I notice the mop and bucket, put there to remind me to mop the kitchen floor. I get my shower and get dressed and get a text message to check email for an important question. (Since I’m hosting a mystery and this person is a member of the mystery group I assume the question is about the mystery)
After answering her question I check email again, might as well since I am on line, right? Then I get up to go back in the bathroom but take a detour when I notice the hummer feeder is empty. I make a batch of nectar and go out to fill the front feeder and break it… So I have to go to the garage and find the spare feeders, last one. I fill that and put it out and then come in to see how much Amazon is selling the kind I like for. Hour later I have to “go” and again notice the mop and bucket.
However as I finish my business I hear the phone ringing (no I don’t take it in there with me). I rush back in the LR to answer, but that person has hung up, so I call her back. She asks me if I have a certain fabric, and I think I do, and I tell her I’ll check and call her back. I go upstairs to the un-air-conditioned room where my fabrics are
hidden stored and look. I find every pink Aunt Grace BUT the one she
needs, sorry Kathy. Then I think of
another place I have Aunt Graces, so I look and there is a little less than a
FQ which is enough, so I call her back with the good news. Then I put that in an envelope and rush out
to the mailbox.
Since it isn’t raining and I wanted pictures of my Stargazers while they are still fresh I take a few photos. After walking the whole yard snapping pictures I come in, and post two to the blog. Of course I check email while on, but nothing, good.
While out I noticed the grass is over taking the front garden again, so I go back outside and do some work in there, until my back and head are screaming at me. I listen to them and come inside, and go straight to the shower… again… and guess what, that mop and bucket are STILL sitting in there.
I come out of the shower and go in the bedroom for clean clothes, get dressed and then decide I should throw in some laundry. While sorting I find a receipt I’m sure I haven’t recorded, so I come in to the lap top check… no it wasn’t recorded, I take care of it. While there, I might as well check email again. Good thing, another important question that needed to be answered. That’s all taken care of and I …. Wait what was I doing. OH yea, laundry. So I throw in load one and then notice a strange car in my driveway. Man gets out and comes to the door… I will not answer the door since he’s most likely a salesman, but he doesn’t knock, gets back in the car and drives away. I look outside on the stoop, he was delivering the new phone books.
As I am putting it away I notice there’s a pretty big stack of phone books so I go through them. I toss any older than this year, which fills the recycle bin… there was other stuff in there before I started… so I take it outside. When I come back in I say to myself what else can I get rid of, and open up another cabinet, tossing stuff we haven’t used and most likely will never use again in a box. I go in garage and
hide put box in my car to take to thrift shop
next time I’m out and I find a package of toilet paper I bought a few days
ago. I bring that in and put it in the
bathroom closet and notice the mop and bucket ….
And walk out.
I’ve done enough today and I have a good book to read!
