My brother N posted on Facebook last week – he does that every now and then. This post was particularly good, I felt. It went something like this:
Maine Spring to do list:
- mow grass
- mulch shrubs
- plant flowers
- top off pool
- shovel walk
- salt steps
- plow driveway
- scrape cars
That’s about the size of it. Every time I think we are really getting spring it gets cold and nasty. Every time I think it will be cold and nasty, it gets warm and sunny. I am going to keep on thinking cold and nasty thoughts.
Apparently I am more contrary than I knew (which is amazing as all my life I have been told I am more contrary than Mary, Mary.)
Here we are on the 4th day of Me Made May, and I have not yet worn anything I made. Seriously, not even earrings. Not even socks.
And to think I seriously considered joining in this year. Guess it is a good thing I didn’t. I wonder how long I can go not wearing anything I made?
What I am learning by volunteering one evening a week:
I need lots of sleep. I went to bed two hours later than normal last night, and I am exhausted. It will take me all week to make up the sleep. Not sure I like this development.
New mattress arrives today. Maybe that will help me catch up on my sleep.
