A Segment Of One Of My quilts
Today is Friday. I have tomorrow off. My knees ache. I am very, very tired. In a good way. I watered plants for 30% of the day, potted up pansies for customers 20% of the day, and can't remember how the remainder went. The sun was shining--the greenhouse was very warm.
One of the new hires--a guy --- said "this.....the greenhouse, and all....this is really nice, a good place to be. To work". I said. Yes, it is.
G invited me out for dinner tonight. It was nice. I had carrot soup, salad and half a portion of cheese manicotti. Lunch was the last two red grapefruit and Greek yogurt. Today was heavy on dairy.
I hope I fall asleep and stay asleep. I awoke before the dog pushed the hall door open (it bounces off the wall) at around 5:30 or 6 am this morning. I had dreamed I was on a train, got off, leaving my purse and suitcase on the train and then stood there watching the train leave. Wondering what I was going to do now. Then I woke up. I'm sure the dream is trying to tell me something. What?
We finished watching the five seasons of Fringe on Netflix. I am missing Olivia, Walter and Peter. I wonder how they are doing. G feels the same. It's like we got involved with really good friends and now they are gone. Poof. I don't know what we can watch next that will have the same emotional pull. Any ideas? We looked forward to tv time and bingeing on 3 or 4 episodes an evening. Now we are back to regular programming. Poo.
I have new tires on my car. With tread. I wore the original tires to almost smooth in 22K. Took me 6 years to do it. Remember when tires lasted forever? The first thing I noticed was that braking was much more sudden now. These new tires really "stop".
