What a glorious weekend! I could really get behind this whole three day weekend thing. Long enough to get stuff DONE and still with a day to recover before coming back to work. Hubs and I did a major deep clean (first since Christmas) and rearranged some furniture. I'm really happy with the end result. My library feels more librarylike. It's so NICE to have a clean house! I'm hoping it will clear my brain some for the many many things I need to accomplish over the next month.
Daisy got caught RUNNING yesterday, so she's clearly feeling better and we're all delighted. We really value the good days with her after what she's been through the last year.
Rain was forecast this morning and so far it hasn't materialized. Maybe it will have missed us. We've had MORE than enough lately, and would really like to see things DRY OUT some. Yesterday's afternoon in the sunshine was so lovely, I'd like to have more of it.
We've got wicked heavy fog this morning. Considering I don't actually have to get out in it, I can enjoy the atmosphere! It obscures the ocean of hay beyond the back fence--a world of quiet white. Really beautiful and soothing in its own way. Like a little cocoon from the rest of the world.
It's my birthday today. I'm 33. My gift to myself was to take the day off and SLEEP IN by TWO WHOLE HOURS (I am a great fan of sleep). Then I'm headed up the road to hang with my mom for the day whenever the fog lifts. But just now I'm enjoying this quiet me time with the pups before running in to anybody else.
We've got some organizing and spring cleaning projects to do this weekend, which probably doesn't sound like something to be excited about, but I am. The house has been pretty chaotic since Christmas and it's been DRIVING ME NUTS. I'm one of those people for whom the state of the house largely affects/reflects the state of my brain, so chaos and mess = more chaos and mess, which is not great for the productivity. So REALLY looking forward to a good, thorough spring clean!
And maybe some swanky mac and cheese for my birthday dinner--there's a brick of fontina in the fridge that's calling my name...
