No, I did not get a job or anything that grand, it seems all the planets aligned and everything happened at once. In stepped life and in no shape or form could I step past it. So this is what ten days away with all the planets aligned looks like.
It starts with Ms. Twister coming home from months of air travel and lots of tip-toeing through the house. I have to remember how to cook for two again, and darn tomorrow there will be no left-overs.
Every piece of lawn equipment we own has broken; two lawn mowers, a leaf blower and a weed eater. I think all this rain and the grass growing so tall is definitely due to a planetary shift.
What has now turned into a bi-weekly thing, transporting a friend to a pain management doctor. Fours hours later and she seems to only suffer pain while at the doctor.
My father loaned me a weed eater. I stopped by to pick it up and ended up laying a floor. This will be followed by painting the same apartment for him, today.
I have planted till I can plant no more, but learned boat shoes work well for gardening in the rain. Why do squirrels bury half eaten nuts? Don’t they have an expiration date?
I have constructed and installed a rain barrel. I had no idea Kentucky was full of survivalists but apparently it is so. The lady who sold me the barrel said they keep her hopping and in business. Plastic I have learned is a must for survival, who knew?
I have used and abused muscles I did not know I still had. I have blisters on both hands, scratches all over me and I have a tan or so some lady thought.
While in Lowe’s today a woman asked me if I had been to the beach? I was confused but smiled and said no. What was she looking at I’m white as snow? That is when I looked down at my legs and realized…
Mud when applied just right can pass as a tan.
Again, I’m sorry to my followers for being away so long. I just have had quite a bit going on, more than I care to put in a post. Today I will paint that apartment, tomorrow pain management and hopefully soon normal will return.
If you are here from Kathie’s Like a Box Chocolates, WELCOME. Please drop me a comment and say hello.
I will be making the rounds as time permits, so please be patient.
