I slept in (turned off the alarm, rolled over, and went back to sleep) on this holiday Monday. Dad made Fiber One pancakes for breakfast (not as good as Bisquick — which may also be about the fact that I didn’t slather them with real butter, half a jar of Skippy, and a half-gallon of Log Cabin).
Then I headed out to the yard to pull weeds. I planned on it taking about an hour and was happy to get out there while the temps are still reasonable and the humidity only slightly drippy. Well, I underestimated by about 50%, but feel really quite good that I made it through all the planting beds today. Whew.
Sitting here at the computer cooling off internally before I hit the shower, I realized just how badly I need a haircut. (Consider the photo Exhibit A.) As I am headed to IKEA next for a single purchase (know the aisle number going in, so there’s no wandering through the store being tempted by things I just “can’t live without” today), I may also stop and get my hairs reorganized.
I expect to finish the home office reorganization this afternoon and then have a few things that need my attention on the laptop — one project for a friend and a couple projects for work this week. Those can all be done with reruns of White Collar or a favorite movie playing in the background.
This is a summary of my Labor Day LABOR.
