The weather has continued to be very strange. We had rain on Monday and temps are back in the 80’s so I have turned the a/c off.
I woke up Tuesday in no mood for the normal routine. The routine is starting to feel like a rut. This really doesn’t make sense as I have been doing lots of different projects lately. In addition to making my triptych and organizing my closet I sewed a pair of curtain panels for our trailer. So I have no idea what the problem is. Spring Fever?
I need to find someplace new to walk the dog. I have gotten rather bored with all the nearby little neighborhoods. Much of the urban desert southwest all looks the same. Same houses, same landscaping, mountains in the background. I need to find some new, nearby places to explore.
After getting my son to school I decided to do whatever came to mind. I washed my two pair of older sneakers (it didn’t help much) and hung a load of laundry outside. I made a pitcher of iced tea and a batch of hard boiled eggs. Then I walked the dog around the block. It may be boring to me but he seems able to find lots of interesting smells. Then I decided to hop on the treadmill and read blogs and write my own. As tempted as I was to sit on the couch watching tv and eating ice cream I know how much this walking contributes to a good night sleep.
Next I cleaned out the desk drawers, an item on my declutter list for this year. Accomplishing that task felt pretty good. Then I took the rest of the homemade bread that was getting stale and turned it into croutons.
Wednesday morning after walking the dog I washed my car. Another overdue task I can now check off. I have pretty much decided to throw my routine out the window until the end of the school year when a new routine will be created. I am rather enjoying doing random tasks and not knowing what I will be doing the next day. Plus the house is getting really clean. Only 10 more school days!
