My day of leisure
I keep expecting to have one, but so far, not so much.
I had a benefits seminar this morning at my new job, and then spent eleventy-billion hours at the doctors. (nothing wrong with me! except my incredibly low heart rate which alarmed the nurse & the EKG machine.)
Then, I had to deposit my first paycheck from my new job (direct deposit next time, I hope); and then, I had to vote. Well, actually, I voted yesterday, I just had to drop off my ballot. It’s convenient, but I do kinda miss waiting in line and then getting a little “I voted!” sticker when I get done. I’m very sticker motivated. I’d do anything for a gold star.
Now I’m finally home. Our neighbor Tom (of the bike rescue) stopped by with his daughter. In addition to rescuing me on Saturday AND brining the architect & I food, he also rescued the architect’s bike glove which had been left behind.
And finally – we meet a neighbor that is our own age! Although they do have kids, so that makes them a bit….odd, but perhaps we can get past that. (Also, yesterday the architect & I went to get a burrito, and we ran into the person who hosted the party we went to a couple of weeks ago. And I told her the architect’s name was Joe. And it isn’t. And now she probably thinks that I am completely insane and/or a strange bimbo-like person. And seriously, I told her my husband’s name was Joe. Stupid sun poisoning.)
It is still very very warm.
BUT – things in my garden are growing. Peas, beans, lettuce, spinach, potatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, squash, zucchini, radishes AND an eggplant. I am VERY excited about my eggplant.
The architect & I have been talking about camping Memorial Day weekend, and then last night realized that Memorial Day is NEXT Monday! Which is crazy! ACK!
Also coming up are a number of very important birthdays. My niece turned 13 yesterday. My good friend Brad is turning 25 on Thursday. Next week is Dr. Marcy AND the architect. It’s a very festive time.
