Not really manic, just trying to get caught up after the busy and lazy weekend! lol Busy as in out and about doing stuff and lazy as in didn’t do nuthin when I was home! lol RJ has home based speech therapy on Mondays so I was up early doing a little picking up and vacuuming before the therapist arrived, After she left I did 3 loads of laundry and hung it out to dry…..I’m going to hate when the weather gets too cold for me to do that…..I love the time spent outside early in the morning hanging clothes on the line and listening to the birds sing. Such a peaceful relaxing time for me. After that RJ and I took a walk to the park and he spent a little while on the playground equipment. Then home for his lunch and quiet time in his room with Blues Clues. He’s given up his naps already but I found we BOTH need him to have a quiet hour or 2 in the afternoon in his room! 🙂 I’ve started buying a few Christmas gifts here and there and had them all thrown in my closet in bags as well as some Halloween goodies for the Grands. So I got all that stuff out and organized. Supper was simple….SM and I had both been craving Chili Cheese Dip so we just had that before she went to work. Got the clothes off the line folded and put away this evening and got some bills paid online. RJ has had his bath and is snuggled in his bed and I’m getting ready to watch a little TV before SM gets home from work at 10. Tomorrow I plan on getting in my shed and pulling out the totes with our winter clothes in them. It’s starting to get too chilly in the mornings for shorts although by noon it’s not! lol Haven’t started the fireplace yet but was thinking this morning that it will be any day now to take the chill out of the air in the mornings and evenings. I love the crackle of the fire and the smell of wood smoke….must be something from my childhood but to me that just smells like home!! Hope everyone has a peaceful night!
