8) Your day in photos.
First I made the coffee, and usually while I wait for it to brew I put away the last nights dishes, but today there weren’t any to put away because I was lazy yesterday. Therefore, I just stood there in a stupor, while it took forever and ever and ever to finish.
Once I had the brewed bean juice, I made my way back to my treacherous chair, opened the blinds, imbibed, and watched the hummingbirds enjoy their morning nectar too.
Now I was fully awake, and ready to spend some quality time with the Lord…..sigh so lovely.
Afterwards, I planned my meals for the day on Myfitnesspal and made my yummy wrap for breakfast.
Then my far away daughter called, thus chair time was gladly extended for awhile.
Next, it was past time to go out and feed the animals, let the chickens out, turn on the soaker hoses allocated for the day, and not get side tracked by the tomatoes and strawberries that needed munching.
I also watered the pots in waiting, and enjoyed looking at collection of this and that on the shelf.
I eventually decided to do something productive with my day and began working on finishing my mother’s attic boxes. The one I opened this day was full of damaged embroidered items which were intended by her to be salvaged in bits and pieces and used in crazy quilts.
As I was checking out the view from the back porch on the way back into the house, I noticed that it was time to turn off the soaker on the black berries.
Which meant going into the front yard, and of course, I stayed there for just a smidgen to admire my daughters recent work.
So many hours have been put in by my children to create my vision for the yard, and I am ever so thankful and blessed ❤️
Well here is where the day took a turn for the worse, for as I was about to start the dishes I had neglected yesterday, I made a very bad judgement call. I knew that I absolutely needed to go to the store today, that it was the most important chore of the entire day, so I decided to go right then, just in case a wave of fatigue crashed over me unexpectedly, as is so oft to happen.
Unfortunately it was over 100 degrees outside and my car’s air conditioner is broken, and ever since the heat exhaustion a few weeks ago, being in that kind of heat for more than a few minutes knocks me out, and I don’t recover for hours.
However, I am used to having my days cut short, and actually, this was a better than usual day considering how many are over and done with before they even get started.
But, and I do love buts, I have finally learned to adapt and go with the flow of things and give in to the need for rest, rather than to try and push through the fog and pain, and fight against that which I cannot change.
Besides, my treacherous chair would miss me, and would not tolerate it at all, if I managed to stay away from its clutches for too long.
