This ain’t my first rodeo…
or my second or my third. The point is, I’ve lived through a lot of rodeos. This morning I can feel every one of them. I set the alarm for 6 so I could get an early start on the day. I haven’t been sleeping well lately and have tossed and turned until the wee hours of the morning before dozing off. This means I am starting my day later than I like. So this morning I am up at 6 and ready to start the day. The only thing is, my body is tired.
Well, enough complaining even though this is Wednesday and has been officially declared rant day. I want to get a start on some of the spring cleaning. I planned to yesterday but I ended up going to Walgreens, Wal*Mart and Kroger. I meant to buy a lotto ticket and I forgot. I will check and see if it rolled over, if so I will get one today. My daughter is coming over tomorrow to help me get the curtains down and washed, so maybe I will even wait until tomorrow to start anything. That means I will have plenty of time today to go get that lotto ticket.
I noticed signs yesterday all over town of Spring. The forsythia is blooming and the trees are budding out. the weeping willows are green and my front yard is still covered with oak leaves. I looked out my window yesterday and there was my daughter out there raking away. I asked her what she was doing and she said she was tired of leaves being up to my door jam each time she came over. I did ask her to stop as it is maintenance’s job to clean the yard.
This is the way the yard looks even after all of the raking. Click on pictures to biggify them.
I should close for now as I am procrastinating again, which is one of my worst faults. And that was a New Year’s resolution to stop doing that.
