I awoke at the crack of dawn to the sun shining and the birds chirping their little brains out.
(It's a good thing Stewey wasn't here to witness/endure it. He would have snatched off his little sleep mask and had a cross word or two with the Head Bird in Charge about caterwauling at such an indecent hour.)
Damn good coffee and the paper were dispatched with authority and then I got myself cleaned up and semi-presentable for Library Guild. I decided to brave it and went with a leggings/tunic top ensemble that had heretofore only seen the inside of Chez Spinster, but it must have been OK because nobody called the heiney police and had me carted off to fashion jail.
(But again, thank God Stewey wasn't here to comment about a "woman of a certain age" who would most certainly look and feel better in a proper shirtwaist and sensible pumps.)
As usual, my guild ladies worked their magic on me and I felt completely renewed and relaxed for the first time in quite a while. I didn't take one single stitch, but I sat and enjoyed their company and oohed and aahed over their gorgeous work. Miss Myrtis made the most beautiful jewelry pieces...beaded and colorful and so pretty I couldn't stop looking at them. Missie Jane had her puffin...a fantastic painted canvas that she is doing in vibrant colors and cool stitches. And Miss Charlene is finishing a class piece by Kathy Reese that has blues and purples in it...can't wait to do that one!
Lunch was my monthly cheeseburger, and the darn thing was bigger than a hubcap. I felt like I should have been on one of the Food Network shows about enormous food, but I was not daunted, I tell ya. I jumped right into that cheeseburger and ate a whole half of it while poor Miss Julie watched in horror.
(It. Was. Delicious.)
As much as I'd love to tell you that I came home and finished my packing, I did not. I came home, got into pajamas, and took a four hour nap with my face in the sun as it splashed across the pillows. And when I woke up, I did absolutely nothing but drink iced lemon water and watch TeeVee.
(It, too, was delicious.)
So that means that today is going to be rather full. I need to finish packing this house and then I want to get groceries in place over at CS2 so that I don't need to fuss with it next week. I did, however, modify my list to include just a few essentials rather than a full stock up. I figure that it's still going to be a few days until I'm fully functional over there, so there's no need to fill the fridge, freezer, and pantry just yet.
We're off to the races, kids! One last push today and it will finally be done!
I hope your weekend was everything you wanted it to be! Come tell me all about it!
