This is Ed. And Ed is tired.
I know just how he feels. It has been a long week. I got so much done. I am quite impressed with myself.
Getting stuff done makes a body feel good. Finishing orders, packing them up, and putting them out on the porch for the UPS man, is very satisfying. Having a list, and working my way through it just moves me.
But having a week lying blank in front of me is pretty incredible, too. Not that I will lie around eating bon bons. That isn't likely. But it will give me a chance to pick and choose what I want to do. This kind of freedom is usually short lived, so I love every minute of it while I can.
I might even take a day off, you can never tell.
But for now, a trip to the hot tub, right outside my back door, is in order. Possibly the best money I ever spent, I have had it for several years, dragged it here from my old house, and wouldn't trade it for anything.
It is a pleasant 103 degrees, and it is how I soothe and relax my aching back and shoulders after a day of weaving. There is a roof over it, so I can go in it even if it is snowing or raining, but it is still very much outside, and getting out there some nights is a very chilly trip. But I forget about the cold outside temps as soon as I am immersed up to my neck. This is where I usually unwind, and sometimes contemplate what I will do tomorrow. And from there, it is a short trip to bed, and an even shorter trip to dreamland.
And even though I didn't weave today, on my granddaughter's 5th birthday, the hot tub is still calling me loudly.
It would be rude not to respond, don't ya think??????
