May 28, 2012 Garden
I have had one of those days where I feel as though I’ve been rather unproductive. I did go to a munch this evening and to a friend’s house after. I had planned to get up early and do some weeding before it got too hot, and then I slept in a bit and when I went out and did a little, the heat drove me in, so I didn’t do that.
I could have gone down to the basement and worked a bit more on the shelves, but as I might have mentioned, I am sick of books. I will put in an hour or so tomorrow, but I can’t do a lot more until the old bookcases are repaired and I can’t do that, so it has to wait.
I was going to make some phone calls, although I know from experience holiday weekends aren’t great for that, so it was easy to blow off.
I could have tidied the kitchen and emptied the dishwasher, which needs to be done, but I did not do that, either.
I could have gone to K-Mart and returned the lawn chair cushions that didn’t fit, but I didn’t leave early enough before the munch to do that.
I didn’t leave early enough because I took a nap this afternoon. I couldn’t seem to hold my eyes open, so I stopped trying. I don’t often nap, I don’t sleep well in general, but I slept for nearly two hours this afternoon, and that did feel lovely.
I could have done something this evening and sort of had planned to, but I went to the friend’s house, so I didn’t do that.
I believe the only two things I accomplished today were to get rid of that porn collection – a friend took it for a horny 20-year old they knew – and I went through a few magazines.
I found a stack of them in the basement, old women’s magazines, the kind with the tempting-looking cake on the front, which promises organized closets and well-behaved children if only you follow the directions included in that very magazine. I find it more rational to pull out the four pages I actually want from the magazine and recycle the other 120 pages.
I did water outside plants and pots a bit. I watched some programs I had recorded on my DVR and got it back down under 70%.
And I wrote this blog.
