Smooth like a baby...
In the spirit of love, meditate on this quote:
He is the half part of a blessed man,
Left to be finished by such as she;
And she a fair divided excellence,
Whose fulness of perfection lies in him.
"King John" (2.1.456-9)
And for no other reason but to answer the never-ending question "what do you do?" I will describe my day thus far. Feel free to skip this section as it may bore you, but because I tend not to share the minuscule details of my life, I might as well take an opportunity.
Today is Monday, June 30. I woke up at 7:30 am to take my sister and her family to the airport, so that they can celebrate Independence Day near the birthplace of independence (Pennsylvania, if you've forgotten my birthplace). From 9:30 am until now, I've been doing laundry. Always a chore! Between loading, unloading and folding--including washing the bedding and remaking the bed, I've also managed to scrub both bathrooms spotless (including tub/shower, toilet, vanity, and floor), vacuum every last inch of carpet, not to mention partake of a healthy fruity breakfast, and protein and veggie packed lunch, quickly check some emails, as well as make and bake a not-so-healthy but yummy-delicious fudgy chocolate chip muffins. Perhaps this will encourage calorie consumption during the breakfast hours for my husband. It is currently 2:00 pm and I still have one last load to fold and put away. I have flowers to feed (fertilize) and water, finish this blog, 5:30 Pilates class, and if time permits, squeeze in a quick--or probably a long--cardio hike up the canyon. I have no plan for dinner yet, but I'm sure I'll come up with something in the remaining time I have, but I can't forget to squeeze a quick scrub in the shower as well as some gospel study, and as always, sort through the mail. Whew. I can't imagine trying to throw in a job or some kids into the mix, but I guess not everyday is Monday, which is my usual get- everything-done-day.
Yup, I have a pretty tough life, don't I? Ha ha! I love it.
Have a great day everyone and don't forget to comment, because I love hearing from my blogging friends! Summer is my favorite time!!!!!!!!!
