Then I left for town with an artist, who had patiently waited in my living room while all this went on. We went to have his art framed. He has no car, so I was happy to provide him with transportation as I had to go in anyway. Once there, he and I encountered delays of all kinds, but mostly long lines everywhere we went. He bought me lunch for my kindness which I thought was really nice.
So by 6:00, when I was supposed to be at the pot luck, I was still about twenty minutes away. Luckily no one in the group is uptight. And I was bringing the wine!! We had fun and wonderful food at the dinner, but because of my delay, Gail, the artist with me and I had to buy something to take because we just didn't have time to do otherwise. Not that it is a big deal, but it's always more fun if everyone brings a homemade goody.
Then last night I woke a bit before 2:00 (oh, that's this morning, isn't it?) and couldn't go back to a sound sleep. I drifted in and out of "twilight sleep," frequently waking and becoming more frustrated with each. Then China wanted to go outside at about 4:00. By this time, I was exhausted, and I did manage to sleep until about 7:30. Bottom line ... a frustratingly slow day followed by broken sleep, and I'm behind on getting the house cleaned and ready for company arriving on Thursday and Friday!
I'm on my second BIG mug of tea, and I'm nearly alive. It occurred to me that I'm felling a bit Maxine-like today, so here ya go .....
Hmmm. I guess I'd better get crackin'!!! No, not crackin' knees or other old joints, but getting work done!!!
If I have time, I'll do a Tuesday Trivia later today. If not, you'll get a Wednesday Wivia again tomorrow!! Have a good Tuesday, everyone!!

PS - I forgot (see how fuzzy my head is working???) to say they started on the back deck yesterday. I had voiced concerns about there being a lot, make that A LOT of rock in the way of digging holes for the posts. The guy building it said he thought it would be alright, it wasn't as bad as I thought. Yeah, uh-huh. Two guys spent all day yesterday digging, pounding, prying, chiseling, etc., at almost solid rock. They got three and a half holes dug!! We'll see what happens now, but I'll say I'm really glad I'm doing a trade at this and not paying by the hour!!
Life is beautiful!!!
... after all!!!
