Last week I was up early each day, but today I slept until after 8. What a slug. Then I completely frittered the rest of the morning away and accomplished nothing of meaning or worth. It was just as well because I was around for my phone interview with Social Security. It was on my calendar, but I also like to go out to weed on Monday mornings and I would have forgotten about the scheduled phone call if I had not been so sluggish.
I went outside at noon to discover that it was very warm! I hopped on the lawn mower and got that task taken care of for a couple of weeks. I will maybe mow once more before I try to figure out how to store the lawn tractor for the winter. I know that I am not going to try to put it up on blocks and grease the innards of the thing the way Mike did. He kept track of the hours of use and maintained it on schedule.
I suppose I could read the manual that is on his work bench out in the garage. Dealing with machinery other than my sewing machine has not made it to my weekly schedule. I am not all that sure that I want it to either. I am not even taking the snow blower out of the shed. Some machines just scare me.
Anyway, I got the lawn done and went to the library and it clouded over and started to pour. The temperature dropped dramatically.
I have a writers' group meeting tonight so I will have to go out again. It is now dark and gloomy and I long for my pajamas and a cup of SleepyTime Tea. I will feel better for meeting with my writer friends, however, so I will make the meeting and do the tea thing later. My own writing has suffered greatly, but I will still go to be with the group. It is important.
