Wednesday in the quiet...

 Ahhhh....the silence. I am loving the quiet here today, not going anywhere all morning, no rushing around, no nothing. A morning to savor.

Been running around like a chicken with my head cut off the past 3 days. Nonstop, from morning til night. Then yesterday was a particularly long day at my [supposedly] PT job.  Last night I did a couple more loads of laundry and fell into bed at about 11:30. Didn't move a muscle I don't think, until about 7:30 this morning.

 If you don't know...that's a marathon sleep for me.  lol  Because of my busted up pelvis and hips, I can't sleep well. Unable to lie in one position long enough to really get into REM sleep, I generally sleep only about 4-5 hours a night, and feel tired a lot. Until those days that I have pushed myself for days and days, and then I sleep the sleep of the dead. lol Like last night. Only problem with that is that I wake up feeling mentally refreshed, but like I got run over with a Mack truck. It'll take a while for the muscles to forgive me.  lol

 It's a beautiful couple of days here. low 70's and sunny. The nights are very cool, high 40's and 50's. I just went out and picked another blue tub full of end-of-the-season tomatoes and jalapenos and bell peppers.  sigh...I really didn't think there was THAT much more out there...
but I guess the blessings just keep on coming.      :)

  So now I have to I making the Irishman spaghetti and meatballs for supper?  lol  Or a big pot of soup.  I guess since he is just finishing off the chili I should leave him be and wait on the soup.  He's being a very good sport about meals, since I'm never here for them except on Fridays.  I usually leave him dinner, but some days I leave him on his own, to forage through the fridge for leftovers, or make a sandwich. Since he often takes regular leftover meals in his lunch, I don't feel too bad about him having a sandwich now and then for supper. Yesterday he had apple glazed pork chops and brown rice and stir fried cabbage. Apples, onions, cabbage all out of our gardens. It's one of his favorite meals.

  It's gorgeous outside. I should probably get out there and love some of it. It's a short time though before I have to leave for work, and I have some work clothes in the dryer for him and another load in the washer. All stuff I couldn't/didn't finish last night.  

  Have a wonderful day,. all. I'm going to get some housecleaning done (just a little) and take it easy. The peppers and tomatoes will wait til I get home. Also--I have enough jalapenos to make some hot pepper jelly...yum...that will be on Friday, I suspect.  I need liquid pectin for that, and all I have is powdered. Guess I'm off to pick up cat food much to little time....

I wish I had half the energy you have. Oh well, maybe I have more than I realize. Life is good.
