Where does the time go? There are still 24 hours in each day, yes? why do I feel like there are only half that amount?
Seems like every time I turn around another day has slipped into history and it's time to go to bed. Mmmmm, sleeeep..........zzzzzzzz.
I'm desperately trying to catch up on reading, I have a stack of books that has a 1/4 inch of dust on top because I just don't get to them. Another stack is shorter by about ten books. My kindle lies idle while I'm reading and commenting on blogs, writing my own new post, reading a book while pages load.
There's a crossword puzzle waiting to be done, and a whole book of code crackers to be worked out. Two books actually, I bought a new one, then found the old one.
There's cooking to be done, kitchen clean up, washing of clothes. I spend more time than I'd like staring at my pots of succulents, wondering where I'm going to plant each one. I don't have a plan for that, there are so many other things already there, the jades, the kangaroo paws, spring bulbs popping up all over. Well, the planting will wait until the ground warms up again, so I have time to decide what goes where. I hope to get some bird baths in different heights, to put in a group and fill with miniature rosettes of echeveria.
There's all those times I have to leave the house, the bread is mouldy, so I must head to the shop for more, books need to go back to the library, well, no more of those, I didn't borrow new ones last time I was there. Tomorrow I have to go to the city, (it's still Sunday as I write this) because the supermarket there has tomato soup on special for only $1 per can. I use a lot of tomato soup during winter; as a base for my bean and pasta soup; also to add flavour to other things like stew or casseroles.
I go to the cinema more than I used to, I've just seen Minions and laughed quite a lot.
When the lights went on again and we were all leaving the cinema, I was shocked at what I saw. discarded popcorn boxes, discarded drink containers, spilled popcorn absolutely everywhere!
I bet those kids don't get away with that at home. Or at least I hope they don't.
With all that going on, I'm surprised I get any sleep at all.
