Not my favorite word, but certainly my favorite activity.  I should be upstairs working on getting that craft room sorted and organized – I have a wedding outfit to make!  I have worked pretty hard to avoid doing that this weekend, with some success. However, shortly I will have to make my way up there.  Truly, I will.  Friday, I did a few chores around the house and laundry; I worked out on the relocation of the pool project for about 15 minutes before the black flies found me; I took the blind kitty for a walk;  I met my cousin P and had lunch and window shopped in some flea markets and antique shops in Searsport – we stopped in the Pumpkin Patch Antique store – I had been by a million times and never stopped.  They have some beautiful pieces in there, not junk. and prices to match. We did spot the funniest thing on the book shelves there.  A book by Kate Douglas Wiggin titled “Penelope Prevails” or something similar, leaning up against a book named “Uncle Terry”.  P snapped a photo of it, we will do something creative with it eventually.

Friday evening A and I watched some TV and I crocheted a hat for the coats project at work. Saturday was even less productive – I dropped A off for a haircut, ran to the dump, stopped at the bookstore for my book club books (Post American Economy and This Life is in Your Hands – I’ll let you know about them when I actually read them.  One needs to be done by 5/25… we will see), dropped food off at the PO, and DID remember to pick A up again.  We walked along the Bucksport River walk for our daily exercise, and then had lunch at one of my favorite take out places around here – Wo’s Barbecue, which opened Friday.  It was so yummy – if you are on Verona Island, plan to stop, and don’t be afraid to try their specialty ice cream flavor, Wo’s Sweet Heat!  They are great folks there, it is all family run, and they are good to me – making me tiny portion sizes and letting me just have a sample bite of the ice cream instead of buying a whole dish.  Then we came home and totally vegged on the couch.  What was going to be one episode of Gray’s Anatomy turned into a DVR afternoon.  The good news is I made three more hats, but I did not get upstairs at all.  Except to get more yarn.

So.  this morning, I am determined to make it up there and spend at least half an hour on the project.  For that reason I have taken a shower and dressed, emptied the dishwasher, started laundry, eaten breakfast, done some research on low potassium foods, and decided that writing a blog post is very important.

Yup, I do love to procrastinate! At least I make hats while I do it, so it is not totally wasted time.


Oh, come on.

OK, I am going.  Just as soon as I strip the bed.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
