Today was totally screwed up…even though it was a month end Saturday I figured I could get out of work in 2 hours tops…well 3 hours later…plus I had a bunch of yard work to do and it rained all day…so did the grocery shopping I had planned to do tomorrow after church and hopefully I can do the yard work tomorrow…

Got take out for lunch because by the time I did the errands and the bill paying et al it was nearly 1 PM and just wanted to eat…chilled this afternoon and had a nice salad for dinner…still not really late but the damp weather is wearing me down an may just call it an early night…

Nite all

A cool wet rainy day today, not a busy day at work but I find myself “all in” tonight…nite all

The third hot, humid day in a row, I have two puddles of cat lying in the coolest spots in the house. Cats are a good indicator of the warmest spot in the house in cold weather and the coolest spot in hot weather. Finally I found a use for then and excuse for why I share my house with them…

Had a three day weekend minus the two and a half hours I put in Saturday…got half of the yard work done Saturday…got nothing done Sunday as a was sick as a dog…got 85% of the house work done Monday… and nothing of either done today…woke feeling less then 100%…busy and exhausting work day…hottest day so far this spring and I melted into my socks…had a worship team practices tonight…went well…best voice I’ve had in weeks but to drained to accomplish anything…will pick at what still needs to be done and complete on the weekend…although since month end is this week will have to put in a few hours on Saturday…

I go nothing done yesterday that I had intended, a very low physical day…had the day off today (Memorial Day in the USA for those of other national origins)…and rather then try to finish the spring yard work that got left over from yesterday decided to concentrate on the housework that needed doing…but was still not up to 100% and got a bunch done but not everything…will chip away at what’s left of the house work and spring plantings and complete next weekend…although the yard work could be completed over the next two weeks and be fine…

Got involved with the chores and when I got to a point that I was where I decided to quit was already 12:30 PM+…had a date to have a BBQ with daughter and her hubby and their crazy small parrot for 3 PM and thought the best was just to skip lunch and save my appetite for the mid afternoon BBQ…of course I hadn’t eaten breakfast either…I rarely do…so by 3 PM I was ravenousness…

A very nice BBQ…charbroiled bratwurst…a nice pasta salad…and a frozen pineapple desert…and have course all the fixings…daughter had made a homemade rhubarb chutney that was an amazing complement to the brats…a Sam Adman’s Amber Lager as a pre-meal drink and a very excellent light imported Germany beer…Westerstien (sic? Maybe) which was a perfect complement to the meal…

Came home…watched a little tube, played a bit of stronghold crusader, and spent about an hour around dusk in the yard with a bit of bourbon and some rye wasa bread…I’m tired…but feeling good

Nite all

I slept poorly last night and awoke in a very bad physical place today…had yard work and house work on the schedule and almost nothing got done…just wasn’t able to cope…rats…
