Tomorrow it is back to work – although it turns out to be a very short week for me, today being a stat holiday and Friday being my day off. This week is a school break so I am really off on Friday. No school program to supervise.
This weekend has been good but very busy. Easter services were a refreshing break from getting all the documentation in order for my taxes.
Oh, yeah – I also cleaned house. A major cleaning. I even emptied out a closet that, well I confess, had not been cleaned in ages. Today I shredded, recycled and filled a bag for the Salvation Army. The yard was also a disaster area so I hired Micah and he put in a good 5 hours of work on it. We can now walk on the deck without getting wood chips caught between out toes. Our dog thinks she is a wood chipper!
One of the best things I did was begin walking again. It is so easy to just gradually stop that kind of physical activity in the winter. A stationary bike is no substitute for walking along the river bank. Tonight I took Maisie (the dog) for a walk. She hasn’t been trained much to walk on a leash but she seems pretty easy to train. By the end of the walk she had stopped pulling on the leash and would sit down when we stopped moving. I rewarded her with a big rawhide bone which is nowhere to be found. I have no idea where she hid it. I just wish she would chew it up rather than the firewood that Micah stacked by the fire pit.
