What a difference 8 hours of sleep makes! I wasn't bouncing off the walls, but I did have energy to accomplish some things today. I had things in at the library (Ballykissangel) so I made a trip and picked up some things from StuffMart while I was at it. I got two molded plastic chairs in an ecru color for the back yard area I'm setting up. I didn't want white because it would look too stark but ecru was a good choice. No pictures because I'm not done yet. It won't look like something that belongs in a magazine but it will still be a nice place.
I had picked up some bungi cords to wrap around the table to keep the tablecloth on but it's not long enough so I need to grab another one next time I go. No special trip though.
I did some more work with the weed eater although there is still a bit to go. I need to work on cleaning up the compost area. The lid broke off during the winter so I've got a plywood sheet over it but it's warped and bowing now so I need to figure out something else to cover it with.
Tomorrow I plan on doing some cooking and baking. I haven't felt like doing anything for so long I've got to be sure I don't overdo it and end up back where I started. But staying in and baking sounds like something I can accomplish.
I'm thinking of working on this Tree of Life blanket instead of the afghan squares. I'm pretty sure I have enough and it would look good on my bed so I can curl up under it while knitting and watching tv or reading. Of course I'll have to fight the pets for it, but I am bigger than they are so I should win. At least I would if they would fight fair but their soulful eyes always seem to defeat me.
Sweet and Sour chicken tonight...from a box. I'm not that back in shape yet. Zach and I did have a good talk today about getting in shape and eating better so I got healthful snacks and plan on cooking better. Hence the notion about baking tomorrow. I thought maybe bread sticks. Or flat bread. Something along those lines.
I came home weighed down with library books and dvds. I got A Beautiful Mind about John Nash. The movie is on one of the premium channels right now but I'd rather read the biography first. I got a book on drawing and painting, a Stephen Lawhead book (Patrick) and another Ehrman book. Should keep me busy for a few days. The dvds are Midsomer Murders, set 12 because it's been a while (Monday) since I've seen any, McCleod's Daughters (I've been wanting to see it but they didn't have season 1) and of course, Ballykissangel, season 1. I should get a lot of knitting done in the next two weeks.
Off to eat supper and then crawl into bed.
