This morning has dawned cold and crisp. There is more dark than light. The four maple trees behind the house are finally changing their colors. It’s like they have finally decided that we aren’t getting any more warm weather so they might as well get with the program. The colors are literally overnight…
I feel like there is still so much to do for this weekend! I don’t know why I have to have the house just right this year. It would be fine as it is and honestly some of it may end up staying as it is. I do need to vacuum and I think I may do that either tomorrow or the day of. We track so much in the house on a daily basis I hate to do it too soon. Same with the cleaning in the living room. But some of that will need to be done earlier regardless. So one of my goals this morning is to do a few things (I am thinking about getting all the windows washed) and then figure out what still needs to be done. I have an early doctor’s appointment tomorrow so I may or may not have time to do things before work. And what I cannot get done I will have to cope with not having done. Essie won’t be happy because I need to clean the ceiling fan. She will shake the whole time.
Once this weekend it over it should be smooth sailing. I never thought that I would be able to say that this time of year! I am still adjusting to having the holidays off and not being beaten to death by them. That being said I still have no idea what to do for anyone for Christmas.
In my multitude of dreams last night (and they all were part of the same story arch) I distinctly remember a mass hatching of Monarch butterflies. There were hundreds! I also remember knowing that they were there for a reason. And I was part of that reason. But now… ???
Stella is curled up on the couch under a blanket out cold. Front leg is stretched out in front of her with the other pulled back and bent at the paw so she can sleep on it. Head smushed up against a pile of blankets with that ear going straight up. Oh to be able to stay home! Baby Essie is in a crescent moon shape in front of the bedroom door sound asleep. Her ears are flat against her head with her head between her paws gently snoring.
I suppose if I am going to get anything done before work I ought to get this posted and get moving. I want to thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my various posts! Stay safe!
