Oh my goodness, it is a gorgeous day! After a kind of off and on rainy week, it is sunny and in the 70's this weekend. This would normally mean going to the beach on a Saturday but gas prices are over $4.25 a gallon here so I am having to be a little careful with driving right now. I am combining trips to conserve, and sadly, I do not have anything I need to do in that direction today. I figure that I am also helping to drop demand for oil, which hopefully will eventually mean a drop in prices.
The good thing that comes out of this is that I love to be home or in my neighborhood, where I can walk. I figure Liesl and I can play in the yard today. I need to plant some herbs and do some major weeding so it is a good day to be in the sun. Otherwise, I just love to be home in general. This is where all of my toys are. I can read, watch movies, stitch, knit, cook, bake, work on my house, take naps, quilt, or any number of crafty things. I can take walks with Liesl or play in the yard with her. So it is all good.
So far I am puttering around the house trying to get it cleaned up before I get to play. It feels really good to get everything shiny and good smelling! I started my laundry early so I am almost done. Getting my kitchen cleaned is almost a zen experience for me. I love a super clean kitchen. Today I have to get my light fixture put up. I would love to do my tile back splash but that may be overly ambitious.
So today is a puttering and resting day. Liesl seems to think it is a napping-and momma-rubs-her-tummy day. I have lots of stuff on my to do list, but will be surprised if I get it all done...
