Day 248: (yawn)

Monday, September 05, 2011

There's an old song called something like 'A Most Unusual Day.' Why is it no one ever seems to write songs about 'It Was A Typical Day' or 'Nothing Remarkable Happened Between Waking Up and Going To Bed'?

Today was a most usual day, and as you Faithful Readers know, I don't necessarily find anything wrong with that. It wasn't a holiday here, so it was just an ordinary day in the workweek.

We are in the process of sorting out a contractor to do the driveway - it's an old tarmac / macadam / whatever surface that is pitted and broken. It's held up for over thirty years so we can't complain. It's one of the things we want to make sure we finish before putting the house up for sale again in the spring. That meant meeting with two different representatives (sales people, really) to view samples, talk cost, all that.

And of course today was the semi-weekly supermarket trip. Plus kitchen-cleaning day, AND I did two loads of laundry. I'm telling you, I'm glad it rained all day - otherwise I'm sure there'd have been yardwork involved in there too.

Usually I enjoy typing (which is one reason my blogs, emails, and postings tend to be so long-winded - when I get them written) but tonight my wrist is hurting. No Beatleband; I'm gonna let the joint rest and see how it is tomorrow. Friday is another doctor's appointment, so I believe I'll bring it up and see what he says.

That's me done. Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    I'd go for a song called Hanging Out at Home or Ordinary Day! I had one of those myself, but it wasn't productive like yours, more like The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars. If you've never heard it or seen the video, here's a link: it's quite catchy and silly!http://www.youtube.com/watch?
    We are hoping to sell our house next spring, too! Lots of work to prepare, including getting the driveway repaved, too.

    Happy to hear your day was mildly uneventful. I believe an uneventful day helps the mind recover, much the way a day off between strength workouts does. Your day may have been unremarkable but it was successful: grocery shopping, kitchen cleaning and laundry are achievements worthy of satisfaction!

    Have a good night!!

    I had the same kind of day...rainy and unremarkable....just hanging out. It was nice for a change, although I wouldn't want to make it a habit ;) Hope your wrist feels better, Kasey

    I had off---and enjoyed having my grand daughter all day---she was so sweet today and good tempered today. She helped pick tomatoes today and had to show her poppop and her daddy what she had done---then she ate some at dinner. Kids do like to eat waht they pick.

    Today was an unusual day as we had Tropical Storm Lee. That storm was almost worse than a hurricane as it hung around for 3 days and we lost power today for a few hours. Glad it is back on as I'm ready for my beef Philly cheese steak sandwich.
