Oh, it’s been a busy weekend. A happy weekend. I felt ill yesterday and took an afternoon nap. When I awoke, I knew I couldn’t just stay in the house because I find that so depressing. So, I went out to buy my vitamins at Whole Foods (holy crap – $85.!) and went to Target for a new bathroom rug.
Oh, but I didn’t buy a bathroom rug! I bought these great little bins and boxes. And decided that I HAD to clean the room where I keep all my knitting stuff, my painting stuff, my icon stuff, my gift wrap, my sewing machine and sewing stuff, well, you get the idea. Recently I have taken to closing the door because I couldn’t stand to look at the mess.
Wouldn’t you agree it is horrible? Out of that room, I took one whole black plastic leaf bag of trash, and one whole black plastic leaf bag of mail that has to be shredded. Yikes. When I let things go, I don’t kid around.
I estimated that it would take me two hours to clean the room. Boy, was I wrong! It took four hours. But I am so happy I did it. It is an awful feeling to have crap like that in your house – it is for me anyway. It seems my life stopped on January 25, 2012 when I started a new job and all my energy was taken for that…. not to mention an epic battle with Major depression.
And it wouldn’t be a holiday weekend without an obligatory photo of my front porch.
And now I am enjoying a nice new beverage that I have dreamed up. Orange juice has a lot of potassium, and a lot of calories. My coach said quinine is good for leg cramps, so to get some tonic water. I put them both together, and presto! I have a really yummy drink with potassium and quinine.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your merciful love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night. — Psalm 92:1-2
