Geez, will someone please chain me to my desk today?
Yesterday was the 2nd in a row to go 'ZIP!' When I came in from working outside it was 7:04 PM! Good grief! Granted, I had an unexpected and truly lovely visit from new friends who I have a feeling I'll be seeing a lot of in the years to come.
This couple finally sold their house in the Cities last month and, by the end of May, will be here YEAR-ROUND! When the road that runs between us is open (summertime, before snowfall, and after snow-melt), they'll be my closest neighbors (about 9 miles away). In the wintertime, though, we'll have to go "the long way" to visit . . . unless one uses a snowmobile. It was kind of funny when they arrived because I was staining that chair out on the large deck when I heard an ATV engine come down the hill and across the river in the valley just below. I thought, "Hmmm, I wonder if that could be the Murphys* coming to visit?" And, moments later I heard the engine cut off in the driveway! :) I sure am glad I took the time to bake those yummy blueberry muffins yesterday morning!
* Not their real name, of course.
Anyway, as a result of taking time to visit, I didn't get much done on yesterday's To Do list. And, with a busy weekend ahead, I HAVE to get some of this deskwork done. It's a M-U-S-T! So, I will be here - AT MY DESK - except for breaks in which I'll do chores and maybe a couple of my previously listed & unfinished tasks.
WISH ME LUCK!
