Yep, I know I've not put up a new post in a week, but haven't felt I had anything to share.
I may be in a bit of an in between seasons funk. Good sleep at night has been eluding me no matter what I try. Neither outdoor exercise nor a capsule or two of melatonin does the trick. And yet if I sit to knit or read during the day . . . you guessed it. I fall asleep in a matter of minutes only to jerk awake wondering where am I, what day is it, what time is it, who am I? I think if I let myself, I could be like the newborn babe with days and nights mixed up.
So I've been taking it really easy this weekend, avoiding most tasks on The List I could be accomplishing.
We have a fly problem equal to that of Jenn who writes the blog,
Coffee on the Porch with Me. The flies are those big ol' black ones that come out of the cracks and crevices and seem to immediately land belly-up (deader than a door nail, which is probably not a bad thing) all over the house. Like Jenn, I have to spend too much time each day either sweeping or using the vac to suck them up and away. Mine are especially bad in Papa Pea's upstairs unfinished office. I think a few of them must crawl behind the insulation each fall and happily procreate all winter. In the spring, the hoards emerge and die. Kind of like the salmon after spawning. Darn good thing they're not the size of salmon because they conk out all over the house. On any and all surfaces.
Our daughter is doing a two-week+ house sitting gig for good friends of hers. She will be there over Easter Weekend and they have told her to treat their place as her own so she's preparing dinner there on Easter, and we're invited. Don't know what she's serving but it won't be ham. I've mentioned before she was raised vegetarian and has never developed a taste for most meat. She says the texture of ham is especially bothersome for her so she avoids eating it. I really don't care if we have egg salad sandwiches (all those colored Easter eggs, you know) 'cause as long as I don't have to prepare the meal myself, it will be a treat.
Our snow continues to melt. Although we haven't had a drop of rain nor seen a snow flake in weeks, tomorrow is supposed to be one of those lovely (not) mixes of snow/rain/sleet/ice just to remind us that Old Man Winter has not yet "left the building."
Posts containing pictures are always so much more interesting. Maybe that's why I haven't felt like doing much posting lately. Our bleak white/gray/black scenery out-of-doors hasn't been enticing in the least. As far as inside activity, I've been making some little items that will go in Easter baskets but, of course, I can't show them before the Easter Bunny delivers them!
