How was your week? Are you in need of a good, causal, no expectations day? Me too, not that I have had a terrible week, it just wasn't the greatest. My body is still recuperating from falling down the stairs (I am starting to wonder if I broke my thumb), and it's been one of those weeks where a bunch of stupid little things have happened, like how I have set at least 3 dish towels and my last potholder on fire, or spending 1/2 hour on hold with the garbage company about paying the bill only to have the phone cut out. And topper, this past farmshare pick up was the last one of the season.. BUMMER! I could do a winter share, but the way our winter is planning out, I would end up missing most of it, so it doesn't work. I am coming to terms with it by knowing I can just go to the weekly farmers market…. so I am ok. Oh, and the weather.. WTF! Not exactly complaining, (kinda not). but 70 in November is not ok. Sure I enjoyed not having to wear a coat or that we still haven't turned our heat on, but to be honest, I want cold. I want to feel crisp and fresh. I want to snuggle in warm sweaters and blankets. And yes, I want snow!!! Bah!! But as any good Vermonter knows, blink and the weather will change. (I have been blinking a lot)
Today is going to be a good reset day. I am going to do my chores early, get some food, maybe a trip the the library (I might have a few overdue books.. oops), make some new potholders, and then sit on my butt (leaning to the right cause my left butt check still hurts), ice my hand, and rotate between reading and watching christmas movies (ones with lot of snow in them) for the rest of the day. And if I end up just doing one of those things, I'll call it a success because again, today is all about no expectations.
