RECORDING



I was such a functional human yesterday.  Never before have I attended so carefully to the things that needed to get done.  Laundry, gym, more laundry, menu planning and grocery shopping while doing more laundry.  That sort of thing.

I’ve been a totally unconscious slob my whole life.  Above that sort of thing.  LOL  In the Army, I learned to fake it.  Now at almost 75, I can get through these domesticities with only groans and some degree of consciousness while blowing my nose.  Achoooooo!

Today’s domesticities include making the bed.  I like to see the bedroom with a made bed.  Dishes.  Momentarily.  After all that, I want to make a quick photographic record of the house….an inventory.  In case there is a disaster, insurance companies appreciate this sort of thing.  I had a disaster once.  I haven’t done an inventory here in a few years, and it is time.

Then it is pin the gold stuff to G’s Comic Con costume…and yes, our badges came yesterday.  Maybe I will have time to go buy fabric for my costume.  Or maybe Thursday.



                                                                    

  • Himself:  All his parts are doing pretty good today.  Sticking to his low carb diet carefully.
  • Herself:  Last night a small steak and Greek Salad.  Tonight Pork chops with a fruit salsa and sweet potato fries.  Not really fried.  Yes, I did the research.
  • Reading:  Nothing.  I’ll go to the library.
  • Gratitude’s:  Glad of the continuing ugly grey skies that are keeping us cool.  LOL

    1. Such a neat kitchen. My looks like a tornado blew through today. Nap time is more important.

      1. Mother tried to teach me as did a home ed class. Didn't stick. After the birth of my second child a neighbor took the time to teach me. I din't use a pattern much now but will for my costume.

    4. Your kitchen is very much like mine in layout. Only mine is maybe not quite so neat.

      1. Mine is only neat for the picture. That's the only counter space, so you have to keep it empty for work space,.

    5. My mom taught me to always make my bed, and I do. Every day. I like the way it makes the room look, too.

    7. You have a gorgeous kitchen! I should take photos of the stuff in our house too. I did that when we lived in Illinois, but not here in Hawaii. Thank you for the reminder.
