Saturday Morning Blabber with Coffee
Saturday here. Not much to report this morning. Back to work on Friday to a very busy morning of catching up on email and everyone's needss - some pretty big. And the day went by fast - sort of - and then home again. By the time I got home, my creative energy was spent - the best part of me and the best part of the day gone. I forced myself to do laundry and clean up the kitchen, which wasn't too bad. George was still working on carpets - bless him.
I realized I really just wanted to sit, sip some wine, and read. My book "Overboard" was calling me b/c it was at the end. I finished it. The book to replace it is "Mississippi Solo: A River Quest" by Eddy L. Harris. I always have to have my travel & adventure book going. My biography right now is one by Candy Spelling, called "Candy-Land". I finally started it last night. I have another one - it's a romance type. I tend to want to read these the least these days.
So we had a little Mexican fare for dinner - from Trader Joe's. Corn tamales, enchiladas, and spicy pinto beans. We watched Below Deck, Mediterranean and by the end I believe I was comatose and sleeping, until I heard George saying to Maisy, "Momma's sleeping".
So off to take dogs outside and then to bed - which felt amazing.
This morning at 5:00 a.m. Tugie was up and Maisy was trying to wake me up. So I finally got up and took them out and fixed coffee. George and Roger got up too and I fixed their breakfast and then went back to bed for a few minutes. Didn't stay long. My mind was already starting to waken. I am still pretty groggy and only 1/2 way thru a cup of joe.
So today we have next to no plans other than to go see George's Mom. I have my normal weekend line up to do of laundry, ironing anything for the next week, a bit of cleaning and trying to knock some things off my to do list.
I want to figure out how to hang "my vision" in the laundry room, finish my 90 day plan, and get to where I can begin working on my business and projects. We have been so busy that it has taken a back seat. There is already not much of my week left, but my theory is "Do what you can do" and "Start where you are" with whatever you are involved in. I have a lot of things I do in the nooks and crannies of my day. But today I am glad to have the whole day before me. So we'll see what happens. There is the bucket list, and the business list, and the household cleaning list, and the fun list. And to me - it is ALL fun. The fun is always in the journey. And you know me, I'm always looking for a journey. lol
I also have about 6 CD's I need to import songs I like from - from Jimmy Buffet, Elton John's greatest hits, Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Jim Croce, and Rod Stewart. I missed my iPod yesterday when working on a spreadsheet I was setting up. I like to listen when I'm doing something with numbers and spreadsheets. But I'd laid my ipod on my desk at home to import these songs and hadn't been able to work on it. So I didn't have it with me at work when working on the spreadsheets. Usually I don't miss it and don't want it - but if I'm messing around with things that are tedious and trying - it relaxes me - and actually energizes me to get it done. I don't despise spreadsheets. I rather enjoy them but for some reason I just need some background music when I work on them. I'm not sure why. I guess it provides focus for me in an otherwise horribly busy day with stimuli coming from everywhere.
And so it's 7 a.m. and I'm ready to get started. We will see where I get with this beloved day off!
What are you all doing today?
