It’s official: Thursday is my “Exhausted from the Previous Three Days and Require Much More Sleep” day…. Last Thursday is when exhaustion set in, so I shouldn’t have been surprised this morning when I sent the kids off to school and then openly climbed back into my bed for a nap. What I was surprised about was the length of time that I fell asleep: TWO HOURS…….! I started off daydreaming about mowing the back lawn because it’s already awfully weedy/grassy again, and then I suppose I ended up in dreamland, though it was one of those weird top of the surface dreamlands where it feels like you’re still awake and doing everything in the dream, soooo when I “woke up” I didn’t truly feel rested. I jolted awake actually because I felt like a lazy bum, and got right to work on the back lawn.
This morning I went for a half & half approach to the mowing style – one half of the yard was a coiled rectangle ending in the very middle while the other half was, instead of amber waves of grain, emerald waves of grass motif! Eventually, the emerald waves started to straighten out, and I can’t figure out if that was my obsessive compulsive perfectionism subconsciously interrupting my creative process, or if the lawn mower has a mind of it’s own. Anyhoo, the back lawn looks lovely, well, minus the inevitable dog wear and tear and the rampant weeds, but you get my drift!
So, I’m inside taking a quick break with this blog entry and enjoying the delicious-ness that is Chipotle, which I have been craving since Tuesday when my BFF’s sister flaunted that she was having it for dinner that night….! My family is on a strict No Spending Policy, which is why we’ve been eating home every day and night of the week, and which is also why I’ve been trying so many new recipes. Well, I sold two candle tarts yesterday to a repeat customer named, mom!! And, so Gregg went to pick me up some Chipotle goodness for lunch today – what a wondermous treat on Exhaustion Thursday!
I still have more work to do on the yard after lunch and after the dishwasher is loaded and started, so will bid you a temporary adieu!
Here’s a flower for my tiny, yet loyal group of readers – love you all and hope you are NOT exhausted on this gorgeous Thursday!
