Wow. What a day.
For the first time in something like 600 days, I sent Tom off to work with a happy kiss and then I went crazy.
...played my retro radio station loudly much of the day.
...vacuumed the whole downstairs.
...vacuumed the rug on the front porch then swept the rest of the porch.
...washed the dishes then swept the kitchen floor.
...printed a bunch of coupons then filed them in my two coupon wallets.
...mowed the lawn, trimmed the front hedge, then raked the clippings.
...did the ironing and watched Bear Grylls while doing so..
...changed the filter in our Brita water jug.
...made Fideo for lunch/dinner and fixed a salad.
...began reading The Curtain Goes Up.
...trimmed the grass around a tree.
...watered outside plants and changed the water in two indoor bamboo plants.
... filled the birdfeeders.
...played with the cats, fed them and hugged them both repeatedly.
Of course, I could barely move by the time Tom stepped through the back door, but hey! What an awesome, awesome day.
And just think! I get to have one very much like it tomorrow. Hopefully I can remember to wear an apron next time.
I appreciate your congratulations and encouraging comments here and at Facebook so very much...... thank-you for celebrating with us!
Tom returned from work today happy to be back in the ol' power plant business again. I felt grateful that he'd enjoyed his first day there.
