Today begins the week of confusion….why exactly do we still observe daylight savings time? It’s just an excuse to confuse the population twice a year….
I woke up this morning and headed to PT’s for breakfast…although these days it’s rare that I eat anything, I just go for the company. We talked about the Christmas project and it turns out that she doesn’t want to do it this year. I’m so glad she said something! I was beginning to get paranoid with her one word responses to my suggestions. I can’t imagine how hard things are for her with her healing wrist, so why add one more thing to feel frustrated about. This also takes some pressure off of me…it’s hard to find a project that appeals to both of us. Now I can make what I want and I can do it at home. This homebody thing does concern me a little….I just want to be in the space I have created.
The Girl wanted to stop at Barnes and Noble after our weekly trip to Sam’s Club so we stopped. Neither of us made a purchase and during this shopping experience I vowed to go above and beyond in my effort to avoid the big box stores this holiday. I want no part of the rat race although I did tell PT that I would work Saturday’s in December for L which is technically retail? It’s more of a specialty store but it’s still retail. I won’t say no to extra money before Christmas….
I do worry about the potential snow and the drive but maybe we will have no snow Saturday’s in December? A girl can dream…. I am concerned with the signs for Winter. The woolly bears seam to be all black which is the worst of the worst…the Farmer’s Almanac is calling for a bad Winter, and when I talked to my cousin Friday night he said the farmers in Tennessee said that one of the signs of a bad Winter is leaves that are larger than usual. As soon as the words left his lips I had an image of Force of Nature Girl last week holding an oversized maple leaf over her face while saying “I have never seen a leaf this big before!” Oh boy….this may be the Winter that finally breaks me.
I did get a lot of cleaning done today, I even cut grass for the last time today. I am trying to get a head of the game because now it’s November which means Nanowrimo….So much to do and not enough time….the story of my life. It is time to narrow it down and purge the unnecessary ….Zia
