It is Monday. I find that surprising because I was thinking it was Sunday. In fact, I was thinking that I should run out and check the mail because I forgot to do it yesterday. Well, that’s solved I guess.
We spent yesterday working in the yard. Ena has been up and walking without crutches. She went for a short walk in the neighborhood on Saturday as I now know it was. The walk made her calf / surgery spot pretty sore so yesterday she puttered in the yard, weeding and cleaning up. I was planting herbs and bedding plants.
We had grilled chicken, cornbread, kale and carrots for dinner. That was our big todo for our wedding anniversary this year. And then we watched TV for bit. Not much really but that is kind of what this year is turning out to be. Not much of doing things and a lot of … fretting and cleaning and not going out.
This picture was a gift to Ena one anniversary. I saw it in a gallery in downtown Madison. I told the shop owner that I wanted to buy it but that I’m on my bike. He asked where I lived. I told him our address. He said he would drop it off early Saturday morning. He left it on our porch behind our glider. I snuck out and brought it in as a surprise for Ena. This is from The Before when we did things on our anniversary.
I have project that will require me crawling around in our attic. I’ve been trying to figure out just how I’m going to do that and not fall through the ceiling. It was chewing on my mind all night so I didn’t really sleep well. This reminds me of when I helped our friend Chip insulate his crawl space. I spent the weekend crawling on my back holding up pink insulation. When I went to bed the first night, I dreamed I was in a pink cave with these tendrils of insulation hanging down. I woke up and said to myself, “I am NOT dreaming about THAT all night.” That seemed to work. I didn’t dream about it anymore.
I guess it is a good thing this is Monday and that it is a holiday. That means I can stay home and not go out thus keeping the trend going for the twelfth week. Or is the 11th… or 13th…
