A peaceful Sunday
It started with chores – I was doing laundry at 730a! Just wanted to get it done, get the kitchen in order, find my dining room table which is under a lot of stuff that just gets dumped there. Got most of it all done – there’s still some stuff on the back of that huge table. Decisions need to be made about some of it – should I toss it? Should I keep it, and if so, where? We are pretty full up here on stuff and it’s getting to be a problem. I am not good at parting with things.
I must admit that my Kindle Fire is at least keeping me from adding more books to the storage problem. I’ve actually gotten rid of some of them, some went with Kate and she was told to pass them on rather than return them. Not only is the Kindle saving space and trees – it’s also got me reading more. I’ve been an avid reader since childhood, but during the last few years, I’ve been doing more craftwork. Mostly knitting, some crochet, some small amounts of sewing and quilting (which I did to excess for years). But all these craft things required me to put the books down – and I wasn’t doing the amount of reading that I used to. The early fascination with the newest electronic toy has gotten me back on track, and I’m enjoying it again.
I did sit and knit for awhile today, while waiting for the washer or the dryer to finish their cycles, and by the time Husband got home from work, I was damn tired of being in the house. Had a quick-to-prepare dinner in mind, quickly changed my clothes and just as quick, we were out the door.
Have learned the hard way that I must always bring a bottle of water with me, wherever I go. Dehydration and heat exhaustion are no fun and nothing to play with. Sadly, it took two bouts of dehydration for me to catch on and change my ways. These insulated/covered bottles are great. Sure, it helps to keep it cold but it also helps to contain the “sweat” that comes off a cold bottle of liquid. I take a bottle full of ice and flavored water with me to work every day, and it doesn’t leave a messy puddle of water on my desk.
For all of you that have never experienced dehydration, well, just don’t. Be smarter than me.
