It was the same old, same old kind of week. No matter how hard I try, things at work continue to drive me crazy. My friend C says I need to learn to laugh it off, but frankly, laughing seems like a lot of effort.
On the home front, I'm trying to get my craft room into shape. I went looking for my sewing machine in the storage room, which is the last place I recall seeing it, but it isn't there. I've checked all the closets, the back area of the basement, and cannot find it anywhere. I've only got one more possibility - ask my daughter. She has a tendency to "lend" items to friends, even when they don't belong to her.
I'll get my chance to ask her when she comes over this afternoon to do laundry and watch the Rider game with me. I hope she knows where it is.
Weather wise, it's been a mixed bag. Cool and wet, warming up, then cooling down again. On Saturday, just as my son was leaving for work a brief thunderstorm rolled in.
It was pouring so hard the gutters couldn't contain the water and it spilled over onto the patio. The photo shows the line of water.
Within minutes the storm had passed and though it remained cloudy for most of the day, we didn't get any more rain.
Today, I've been putzing around the house, doing a little tidying, while watching Criminal Minds re-runs. So far, at least two of the episodes are new to me. Or maybe that's just my menopause memory kicking in. The Rider game starts in about 90 minutes, so you all know what I'll be doing then. ;) Go Riders!
It's been a pretty average weekend, but as the title suggests, today is a different kind of Sunday. Tomorrow I don't have to go to work because it's Labour Day weekend, with the Monday statutory holiday. I can't tell you how happy I am to have an extra day off!
I'm hoping to finish the craft room, maybe even put a couple more pages in a scrapbook for the cats I started years ago. But if the sun is shining I'll take my coffee and a book out to the deck and enjoy a few hours of the last few summer days. Ahhh...what could be better than a day just to do as I like.
Have a great week everyone!
