I feel as if I'm going in three directions at once. Well heck, I AM going in three directions at once.
After the great desk moving out/moving in escapade, I am hooked back up to the Internet. I still haven't found time to reply to all the comments you dear blog readers have made in the last few days, but please be patient with me. It will happen.
Neither have I found sufficient time to get my new desk organized. An hour here or there has been put in on it, but I've still got a long way to go. (Criminy! I had LOT of stuff in that old desk. Who knew?) Our whole bedroom got rearranged and I'm liking the way it looks. Or I should say the way it WILL eventually look.
The garden continues to turn out produce to be harvested and processed daily. The garden looks totally spent. All its oompf is going into maturing the crops. However, its bedraggled state hasn't been helped by the fact that I've not been finding time to keep it weed-free, cleaned up, etc., etc.
I did manage to spend a few hours yesterday morning after harvesting to pull up old plants, deadhead flowers and do general clean up. Because I knew I had only a limited amount of time to give to the chores, I pushed myself faster and harder than an intelligent person would and now my lower back isn't working so pretty good. (Dumb, dumb, dumb, Mama Pea.)
Panic is starting to set in also because of family coming from California in a little over a week. We're eager to have them here for the visit, but need to get so much done before their arrival.
Good, restorative sleep has been eluding me. Some nights I wake up at 2 or 3 a.m. and can't fall back asleep. Others I seem to go into a catatonic state and sleep for 10 or 11 drugged hours. Nothing a couple of weeks at a spa wouldn't cure. (Not that I've ever been to a spa.)
The really great news is that our ungodly hot, humid weather has broken. Yesterday was in the mid-70s with a wonderful breeze blowing and no humidity. Today it's even cooler with forecasts for the same highly tolerable weather all week. Wa-hoo! This turn in the weather really helps with the ol' energy level. We still need a lot of rain though.
I will try to get some pictures posted later today of the desk switching operations.
Right now, I have to go make some pickles.
