I am not sure what today will bring. The varying weather seems to fit my moods. It was sunny but it still rained. The clouds are coming and going in varying states of thickness and intent. Intermittent cloud bursts are the norm this morning. Stella is on the couch staring at me. She can barely keep her eyes open but she refusing to stop looking at me. She has just tucker her snout under a paw… still watching me. She is fighting sleep so hard. It’s like she is afraid she will fall asleep and I will have disappeared while she was sleeping.
Work was tolerable when I started but the constant twisting, bending and lifting had me in tears on the way home. This morning is not much better. I am at a loss at to what to do. Tomorrow I am closing in the deli. I really don’t know how that is going to go. Working the deli seems to make things even worse. I don’t know what we are going to do once our summer people leave. There are about 5 people who are leaving this fall. A lot of the carry outs have either cut back their hours or left because school has started. I wonder if store hours will be cut back as well. We just don’t have the man power with everyone who will be leaving.
Work on the house to get things ready continues. Since I can’t do much I am doing the best I can. I will attempt to get the blankets folded from out in the living room. I am going to design myself a rock garden to be able to get the bulk of my rock collection outside. There are some that are just too cool to leave outside (knowing full well that they will be disappearing under the snow soon). I was thinking around my Halloween tree. I could clear out a large area or just start to pile up around the base of the tree. But I also noticed that the tree is severely leaning toward the house. So do I pull the tree out? Or just use the rock base as a prop? I have enough rocks around here that it wouldn’t be a problem. We’ll see. Lugging too many rocks right now is a bad idea. But then again when have I let something like that stop me?
Essie has come up behind me on the love seat. She is usually stretched out in front of the bedroom door. She too seems to be keeping an eye on me. I am going to wrap this up so I can write my article. I hope you all have an amazing day! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
