I have always disliked 4 day weeks. You know what I am talking about, the holidays that fall on a day that gives you a much anticipated 3 day weekend yet you suffer later with the fact that you only had a 4 day week. Having that extra day on a Friday does not seem to mess with me as much as when it falls on a Monday. It seems to throw me off completely.
In the beginning I do not think about it much because I am still enjoying the afterglow of the long weekend and of course we all know that at the beginning of the week we think we have all the time in the world. Those of you who are procrastinators know exactly what I mean. Yet as the end of the week gets closer you realize that abundance of time you had is dwindling down to little of nothing. Needless to say this last Labor Day week has done just that to me.
I am beginning to think also that Mercury Retrograde may have something to do with it. I have tried desperately to ignore the effects of this occurrence yet I feel that she is laughing hysterically at me and my fruitless endeavors. Thank goodness that it will be over next week.
The week was productive even though in some ways I felt it was far from. I did manage to schedule Winston to go in and get snipped. He had been such a lovely puppy and I did nothing but brag on him. I even felt sorry for him and his “appointment” with the doctor. No more mind you. Over the last couple days he has chewed to pieces two pairs of my favorite black panties as well as one of my expensive black bras. The panties… they can be replaced rather easily. The bra… well let’s just say when you are a size like me that it is best when you special order under garments. This is something that makes them not readily available as well as a bit pricey. So of course I was a bit inflamed yesterday when I caught him in the act. He went in today to see the doctor and I say have fun buddy. With my luck this will not help this fetish at all.
Hurricane Hermene paid us a visit over Wednesday and early Thursday morning. It was nice to get the much needed rain. Our pond was filled up nicely with the 5 inches that Mother Nature was gracious to bestow on us. The frogs were in heaven through the day as the rain fell soft and gentle to begin with and they were all over the yard exploring. I have been so amazed by the huge number of frogs we have this year. Most of them are about the size of a half dollar yet some are dime sized. It is a treat to walk along the ponds bank each evening or early morning and watch them as they jump in. I have tried to film this oddity yet thus far have been unsuccessful.
Finally I managed to send off my give away boxes to Mary and Leila as well as Tracy’s goodies she won from my Ewitch giveaway. With the surprise of my 300 plus followers and also the subtle signs of autumn I decided to start another one yet have it run only through September 23. What better way to celebrate the Fall Equinox and September’s full moon than with announcing a winner for my latest giveaway. I think I have far too much fun with these giveaways.
Believe it or not I am also making a good dent in my Christmas shopping/creating thus far for the year. I am so eager to share some of it with you yet I do know that some of my family actually read this blog and well I can’t let them know any of the presents. I have really enjoyed my crafty holiday season. I am also having Thanksgiving at my home this year and have even got a few ideas in regards to making it quite festive.
Lastly I am blessed to get to spend the weekend with my grandkids. I cannot wait. My grandson turned 4 on Labor Day. We are celebrating his birthday this weekend. Don’t think I have to explain to anyone how obsessed I am with my grandkids so I will leave it at that.
Hope all of you are blessed with an enjoyable weekend. Until next week.
