Off-Day or Day Off

Jim has the basketball game on as I type this, and I am taking my first breather of the day. It has been a while since I had a weekday off. It is only my fault, as I figure school is almost over and it’s due to be a long summer.

What I don’t figure out is how tired I am.

They always say you can’t hit a moving target. I can see why, because I could have gotten hit a ton today, moving rather slowly. I have to admit though, I was constantly moving slow, as opposed to being off my feet. It has to be the lighter package I am carrying these days that is the answer. We came home from an early dinner tonight and I actually had some energy perking. The breeze felt good and I had a few plants that had to be repotted or put in the ground. I took care of a few chores that needed to be done and even tried to figure out my medication snafu with my prescription provider.

It’s good to feel good.**

**Except for this damn cough that is still lingering on, and now I have more things to try to treat it with.

Tired beyond belief

My legs were just aching me yesterday.I had a long day yesterday and after a hot shower, I laid in bed. I had managed to get a big pillow under my legs.

Despite getting up a few times through the night. I really slept in. I managed to get the girls out through the day, and am making dinner now.

I need a good 63 degree day to get my energy back. Who’s with me?

Cluck!

   
 
Here are some shots from our oven roasted chicken dinner tonight. I made some mashed potatoes, for something different, some organic mixed vegetables and some cranberries.

When we first got down here and I started the jobs with the bakery and ferry, I just couldn’t get the energy to muster together a decent meal like this,especially after the type of day I would have had,I really , although my mother always would say “Self praise stinks.”,am a decent cook. It is the joy of being retired that allows me to enjoy making a good meal.
