Snail Power Is Good

August 19, 2009

This morning I dropped my car off at the auto mechanic's garage. Have lots of things to check on do for it. Brakes, air conditioning, oil change, etc. With some luck, I will have my new safety sticker by next week.

As for the work here in the house, it goes slowly. This heat and humidity has been brutal. It just saps all your strength and energy right out of you. Well, out of me, anyway. I plug along slowly like a snail. I thought I had a timeline when I had to be finished, but I guess I have as long as I like. Wow, just saying that makes me feel better.

I take a lot of rest breaks. So when I am on "break" I work on my PC. Last night I managed to finish up my second set of Fantasy QP's. I will post them as freebies for you tomorrow and Friday, and Monday and Tuesday. Don't forget, each one is only free for one day, then I remove the link.

Miss Tootsie is learning her way around the apartment really well. As long as I don't go moving too many things. This is a bad time, because that is exactly what I am doing - moving, changing and getting rid of things. When I walk out through the main part of house, I talk to her all the way, and that way she can follow my voice. We haven't tried out in the yard yet, it's too darn hot for her. Her little feet would burn.

Yesterday I found out why my mattress isn't so comfortable anymore. A spring broke and came right through the mattress. Oh boy!!! Well, I was going to go looking at a new bed for me, but now I really do have to. That's okay, though. That's the fun part of changing things.

The clean-up is the hard part. We had squished so many years of stuff from both our houses into this little teeny apartment, so you can imagine what it is like trying to go through everything. I would just dump it all into a trash bag, but the very next day I would be needing something important that I had tossed out. So I have to check everything.

Also, all trash has to be sorted. Paper, glass, plastic, metal, etc. We have been recycling for quite a while, but now it is mandatory in our town. About time, I say!! All cities and towns should make it mandatory.

Okay, that's it. Back to work for Bonzo here. Today I will share a photo of some very sunny daisies. If you do not have sunshine where you are, maybe this will brighten your day a bit. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantastic day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I'm glad to read you are taking it easy with lots of breaks.No good getting stressed out and knackered.I'm doing the same in the moment - disposing of things of my past life to make room for the new.It feels so good once it's done and see the change-makes it worth all the work in the end.Funny -I have just written on my blog about this before I read yours,lol.I'm going Snail Power as well. Big lick to Tootsie,she's still in my thoughts.Hugs Snowy
