Morning Meanderings… Picnic, Baskets, 17 Hour Days, an Anniversary and Author Event
Good Morning! Wow! Wednesday already! This week has been FLYING by! On Sunday we did have the Annual Potluck for church but indoors due to the rain. This was totally fine and it was fun to hang out with friends. Once home I worked on cleaning up my neglected home, including shampooing carpets which kept me busy until about 10 pm.
On Monday I rolled out of bed early (6ish) to set up tables in my living room for putting together the Wine and Words baskets. At 10 am I worked on the seating arrangement for the event and then worked on the baskets for most of the day with Gail – left for a hair cut at 4 and then came back and worked on them again until 9:30 pm and then moved the whole set up downstairs to be continued this coming Friday.
Yesterday (Tuesday) I woke up early and walked 4 miles with my friend Kate on the trail. I fueled up my car, packed a lunch, and then went out to my friends farm to assist in extracting honey from her bee hives and putting it in jars. Crazy stuff… I think I will post pics of this procedure on Saturday. Then I came home in the afternoon, cleaned up and met my book club for dinner and the review of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. We went out to dinner at Boomers Pizza, reviewed the book and then went to the College where Christina Baker Kline was speaking on the book. (Nicely played Bookies… nicely played). It was an Orphan Train evening ;) August marks the 13th anniversary of the Bookies. WOW!
I came home last night around 10:30 pm…WIPED OUT. Today and the rest of the week should go a little easier on me. I do not have any more commitments this week and my evenings are free! Woo hoo!!!! I have had a dull headache the last couple of days from running so hard from one thing to the next – tonight I may rent a movie and chill.
August…. always crazy busy.
