True Confessions of a Random Nature
It's probably because of the 5,129 pieces of chocolate covered toffee I ate yesterday.
Curse you Costco samplers....my exact words as I picked up the container of toffee,
"I know I'm going to regret this, but okay."
And the half bag of movie popcorn I munched while watching 17 Miracles for the 2nd time. (good movie BTW)
I'm a total loser these days.
Haven't done hardly anything since I got back from Utah.
Except read two books,
"Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" and
"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"
excellent excellent reads...
(not quite finished with the Potato Peel pie book yet)
I need to go weed my garden patch.
Which isn't producing much of anything except a large crop of purslane.
(Which I saw was being sold at a farmer's market a couple of weeks ago)
To me that is a noxious weed and
I haven't quite descended to eating it yet.
(google it-I'm not up to searching for a photo of what it looks like-betcha have some in your garden too!)
I need to go backwash the pool.
And fish out the chair that has been floating in it
Since the last wind/dust/piddly rain storm.
I've got to teach tomorrow
I've got the topic
but when I have to teach in another language,
I need to be a little more prepared than that.
TL has a new remodeling project in mind.
I'm kind of excited.
School starts next week.
Except my kid doesn't.
She's in college now.
My baby boy comes home from his mission in about 6.5 weeks
Haven't done a THING to prepare for that.
It's hard to be excited or motivated to do anything when it's 110 in the shade.
And with 35% humidity (which is high for the desert!)
No wonder I'm all headachy and nauseous.
I think I need another piece of toffee.
