Sayonara baby! – My Christmas ducks were lounging in public view at the beginning of the week. I have ceramic ducks that I rotate seasonally. They sit on my coffee table or fireplace mantle through the season and then they retreat to the basement for a long nap and the “other” ducks come out. Life was hectic (that means Kate was lazy). In February I took them off the mantle and put them on the bookshelves awaiting transport to the basement. This week I finally packed them off. My summer ducks were very happy to come out and experience the wonderful weather!
Talk about big brass ones – There is a road I travel frequently with blooming spring bulbs that a garden club planted on the berm. The daffodils are blooming now and it’s beautiful. Today I saw some ballsy older woman picking THEM ALL! Seriously? She was well dressed. She could have bought her own and let those for travelers.
Not all side effects are bad – One “side effect” from my thumb is that I am wearing exercise pants with a stretchy waistband all the time. Zippers were annoying so I bought enough for a week. Last time I visited elastic waistbands (a decade ago) all I remember were bulky, bunchy waistbands that made me look huge. These new pants are amazing. Smooth and sleek — the black looks dressy when combined with a nice top. It will be hard to get back in my jeans!
Remedial class – The rehab team wasn’t happy with my thumb progress so I need to continue rather than enjoy graduation celebrations. Someone asked if the therapy was painful. It isn’t painful but it’s stressful, somewhat uncomfortable and isn’t like a spa treatment at all. After I’m done, I hobble to the nearest Starbucks where I put my tired hands around a nice hot mocha latte. It’s a lot like a cigarette after good sex (only there is no good sex).
In need of down time – The last two weeks have been hectic and this coming week won’t be any different. Therapy sessions twice a week take a chunk out of the day. Add in other stuff and I need a week of nothing. I love nothing weeks! They are rejuvenating. Sometimes I take myself shopping. I am the best shopping partner. I take myself out to lunch at a nice place or perhaps have an ice cream treat. I am very comfortable in my own company!
So how was your week?
