It is Easter Sunday, but a quiet day here as usual.
Yesterday somebody's health was rougher than expected and I struggled to stay above the waves. Later he suggested I sit on the patio, and he was so right. I needed the air, the light, the openness.
I bought egg dye yesterday on a whim for the memories of sitting at my Grandmother's table, with the smell of vinegar and cups of color. But I most likely won't get around to using it. Before making a mess, I should be cleaning messes, and I'm reconciling myself to the fact that I will not, can not, do too much today.
Despite feeling always buried by a mountain of desperate to-do's that I can only hold up but not chip away, I do-slowly.
These are the exciting new things I've accomplished.
1) I know have a car that is legally registered in my state of residence. Particularly fabulous since the registration in our prior state ended months ago. I can now drive with confidence, knowing there is nothing I'm doing that the 4-0 will care about. I never thought I'd be happier to see my new license plates.
I keep the bar set nice and low huh?
and 2) I finally have ordered, received, and cleaned the new bamboo fence that will make our patio a nice, private, space, as we are NOT public people. It leans against the railing now, and once it is water-sealed it will be lashed on securely. This little fence is the key to facilitating a lot of sunshine in my life, and it also tickles me truly to see.
As for all the other shit to do, it's gonna have to wait. Well I still need to do laundry and cleaning and cooking and, you know, the usual shit. But lookie here- I sat and blogged! Woot. So maybe that's number 3).
Happy Easter Darlings. Happy Easter.
