SO MUCH FOR NO LABOR DAY...

On Friday afternoon, I wrote a list of about 30 things I wanted to accomplish.  "It's a nice long weekend"' I said to no one in particular.  "I think I'll take advantage of it and get some stuff done."

Here's the report...

Friday evening:  Zip.  Zilch.  Nada.  I did manage, however, to drool all over the Happy Chair when I fell asleep in it at 7:30.

Saturday:  Aunt Chrissy and I went to House of Stitches and then It was again with the zip...zilch...nada.  This time I was drooling all over the Happy Chair by 7:15.

Sunday:  Yet again with the...(you get the idea, right?  Do I really need to humiliate myself further by confessing to a nine and a half hour nap?)

Today:  Labor Day.  I called Aunt Chrissy at noon and said "I think I'm going to go for a quadra fecta and not do a thing today."  She replied with a "What the heck is a quadra fecta?"  and wished me good luck.

I'm not sure exactly what happened, but at about 1:00 I suddenly found myself outside cleaning up the gardens, and then it was inside to clean the bathroom, do the laundry, grill the chicken, water the plants, sort the fridge, organize a fall stitchy basket, balance the checkbook, change the bed, wash the dog....it's 8:15 and I'm ready to drop.

Here's my progress on Laura J. Perin's "Harvest Moon House"

  1. My only question is, were all the things you did today on your list? Because it sounds like something I would do but the things I would accomplish wouldn't have been on my list, except the sleeping. I have learned to always add that to any list, it feels good to be able to mark something off.

  5. Love your Harvest House piece. Your day of productivity makes up for the lazy ones. Always good to have both types of days. However, my lazy ones are more frequent... :)
