Another 6:15 a.m. wake-up. I used to try to get up around 5 or 5:30; I think I'm stuck on Daylight Savings Time. I'm not going to bed promptly at 10:00 p.m, anymore. It's more like 11:00. This morning I visit with dh and strip the sheets, gather the laundry, and settle down at the computer to drink chicken broth and check the blogosphere for news. My lower back aches, the kids don't have school, and I feel like relaxing.
I wake Meg by 8:00 so she can get to work, start the laundry, and do a little Yoga with Adrienne to limber up the muscles. Y'all, I am totally sold on this yoga thing! Looking at my cousin's pics on Instagram of her amazing poses, I decided to try it, and I am amazed at how good it makes my back feel. I'm told I even look thinner despite not losing any weight. I know my balance is much better than it was when I started, and I feel much better, spinally speaking.
Sooooo, two blog posts on Wednesday wiped me out, evidently, so you're getting Wednesday and Thursday on Friday. Because that's how I roll around here! It's not as if Wednesday was stressful....
After schooling all morning, Meg and I went to adoration for an hour, ran a couple of quick errands and came home. I knitted and read all afternoon while ignoring the laundry that needed to be folded. I cooked an awesome dinner at the last minute, and then more knitting and reading until bedtime.
That's my kind of day!
Thursday was a bit more labor-intensive...dropping the kids at school at 7:45 and hanging out to visit while waiting for traffic to ease up. I came home for a few minutes (blogged, I think) and then went to the Mobile Farmer's market for milk, meat, veggies, etc., and then Trader Joe's---which involved discovering these awesome Kringles! Our boys used to do a fundraiser selling these and I love them so much! The Kringles...and the boys. I was thrilled to find them at TJ's. Have you ever had one?
Unpacked the groceries and took the dog for a long walk, enjoying some of the last of the warm weather. Lunch and reading. Started a new book blankey which I'm excited about! Right now, I'm kind of Cavalier about it ;-), but that has nothing to do with the theme of this one. Any guesses?
Picked up the kids after school and spent the afternoon decluttering the main floor, dusting, and generally making it look a lot less neglected! I had a lot of things to do yesterday (none of which involved knitting or reading), so I stayed pretty busy until Meg and I left for American Heritage Girls, where I also stayed busy with Treasurer duties for 2 hours.
Family prayers and bed. The down comforter is feeling awesome, now!
