There is something I always seem to have to learn the hard way every spring. And that is don't sit on your derriere all winter long and then fly into a cleaning and planting frenzy and not expect to hurt all over. Ouch! Ow! Arrggh! Where's the Advil?
The new entertainment center and mattress arrived Saturday. Oh, I really love that comfy pillowtop mattress! Of course, being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until Friday to do most of the cleaning in the bedroom where the new mattress was to go. I store stuff under the bed, doesn't everyone? And that stuff had to be moved. Dust bunnies had to be rounded up. The closet which didn't need to be opened even got cleaned out again. How does it get so cluttered anyway? The essentials were at least done by the time of the delivery. More needs to be done yet, but now is the time for some outdoor work.
It started to sprinkle today so that was enough to send me back into the house to do a little laundry, load the dishwasher and give the kitties some attention. I will try to get more planting done tomorrow.
I just wanted to check in this evening to say that I am still here even though I haven't been able to visit or blog much lately. Unless the weather changes, I will be working in flower gardens and planting my flower pots for the back patio. The front patio planting is done and looks nice, if you overlook all the seeds falling from the maple tree. I'll take a photo as soon as we get the window painted. The window needs replacing, but that is one of those things that gets pushed to the bottom of the list.
We haven't forgotten The Project. We're still awaiting someone to remodel the bathroom and a few other things before we get back to doing what we can do there. It's too hard to find the right people for certain jobs around our small community.
Hope your week is a good one! I'll be by to visit as soon as I can.
Happy Monday to you!
