Yesterday I was a whirlwind. Sort of. I had a few things I felt I had to get done and a limited amount of time to do them in. Full disclosure: my problems mostly stem from lack of planning and organization on my part. You are free to judge me or just quietly enjoy feelings of superiority if you so choose. I am content to stand as a bad example.
The reason I was in such a hurry was that we were to rehearse Shooting at the Grange at Salisbury Grange, which is almost a half-hour drive from Herkimer. My first chore was to throw in a load of laundry, so I would have clean work clothes for tomorrow. I actually acquired another pair of work pants yesterday, so now I have three. Still not enough to get me through the week, but one does what one can.
Laundry in, I put on old sneakers and a hat (to protect my complexion from the sun), went outside, hefted my defective garage door open (broken spring, not my fault), and pulled out my non-power lawn mower. My bunions told me I ought to seize the non-rainy day. Additionally, with a non-power mower, it doesn’t do to let the grass get too high.
Laundry in the drier or hanging on the indoor clothes-drying bars, I did the dishes I had neglected, a truly judge-worthy omission. While scrubbing I kept an eye on the time. I still had to shower and get dressed!
I managed it. I even put together a fairly color-coordinated outfit, although I could not find the ideal blazer. One settles for less than perfection in this life. The only thing I did not have time for was supper. I munched down a roast beef and cheese roll-up with the result that I had to brush my teeth, which I did not have time for. Luckily Kim was a little late picking me up.
Rehearsal did not go too badly. The Grange people are very excited about the sold-out show. I succumbed to their enthusiasm and may write further murder mysteries for their benefit.
First I need to get a handle on making my blog posts on time.
