Watch-out! Suzy Homemaker is back in town. Woo hoo!
Yes, after five-and-a-half weeks, Tom has returned to work. Light duty, desk work, yes, but he's there at the plant again and I am here at home alone with Lennon and McCartney The Cats as Big Band Era music blares in celebration while I write to you.
And plans! My, do I have plans for today. Painting and gardening and laundry and cleaning and doing all those tasks left undone, those staring at me, while Tom was home resting his shoulder. Maybe I'll even stroll down to our tiny market or a bit farther to the town library. Who knows? I can do whatever I want today for however long I wish. (Well, I can't drive anywhere since Tom has taken the car, but who needs to drive on a lovely springtime Monday?)
And even though many people 'out there' are bummed that it's Monday and some are home dreading tackling the tasks staring at them, well, as for me and my house, we'll spend the day together, rejoicing that normality, all smiley and glad, has returned.
A HUGE thank-you to NancyR for recommending the book, Fifty Acres and a Poodle. It arrived last week and I read it in one (one!) day. A lovely, funny book which I could not put down. You can read about this fun book here and buy it for just three pennies(!), though with cheaper shipping prices and totals at abebooks.com.
Thanks again, Nancy!
