Feeling a bit amazed. Somehow I accomplished tons of things all before 10 a.m. Four loads of laundry done, one of which is hanging on the line outside, both bathrooms sanitized, the kitchen, utility room and two bathroom floors mopped, the house vacuumed, the breezeway and front porch swept, a cake iced and a load of laundry from yesterday all folded and put away.

We didn't get up any earlier than usual but things just seemed to flow nicely. All that's left to do is to decide what we're going to have for tonight's dinner and take the linens off the line when they're dry to make our bed.

All I can think is that someone put a dollar's worth of quarters in me and wound me up tight!

It's great to have nearly a whole day ahead to do whatever I choose to do. We'd go out on the motorcycle but it's supposed to rain. Boo, hiss!! Guess I'll just have to go to my studio and play.

Katie, your post inspired me to get up off my butt and get moving. Been lazy today but now I have clean dishes and laundry and planted bell peppers, squash and onions. Thanks!

Had a semi-productive day today. Mom and I went to Wal-Mart today to do our bi-weekly Walmart shop and to get gas. Hoped to get some cotton yarn so I could make some dishclothes but they were out of the white that I needed, so instead I decided to start on my granddaughters baby blanket. That seems weird to say still, my DD is due the end of June with her first child - a little girl!

After we got home, fixed some BBQ for lunch then took a long nap after mom went to bed. Just woke up about an hour ago, so I imagine I'll be awake for a while tonight. That's OK, I can work on my blanket. Having leftover ham steak and mac-and-cheese for supper tonight.

Thank you all for making me feel like a slug. I haven't done a thing all day other than going out to buy a sandwich for lunch (and eating it).

A dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

It was nice to have a full day without any meetings, a rare occurrance. I actually got stuff done for a change.

I just got back in from shooting.
Watching the draft while my lobster tail thaws.

I didn't mean to make you feel like a slug - I actually felt like one when I first woke up from my nap today. Just now getting my groove on. Listening to Entertainment Tonight and hoping they will mention anything about George Jones. What kind of sandwich did you get - and did you enjoy it?

cjimmy, I do nothing a lot so I'm not really bothered that others have energy. I've learned to accept that others have to do stuff so I can be a slug, something I revel in.

There is a deli in the center of town that makes the perfect Italian sub. I try to get one about once every week or two.
