Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Try to Make Myself Do Nothing!

Happy Saturday! Ugh! My back hurts and my knee hurts and one part of me just really really wants to sit on the couch and do nothing. But another part of me really really wants to go buy more mulch and fun things like that.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While God Prepares My Lawn!

Happy Saturday! Great news! It’s supposed to be super stormy all day today! And cleverly, I raked and mowed the front lawn yesterday. So now God will do the watering and stuff for me, and tomorrow I can plant my nice seeds. But here’s the problem: I don’t have the seeds yet. I want to do clover seeds which are all natural and easy to maintain and bees like them and stuff. But I haven’t had any luck finding them. So today, while God prepares the ground, I will drive around to garden centers looking for clover seeds for lawns. FUN!

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Resist the Urge to Do Things

Happy Saturday! What I WANT to do is my annual Easter sort and clean up the closets and organize the storage room and then load up my car and drive over to Goodwill and the Habitat for Humanity store donate it all. But what I will actually try to make myself do is sit on the couch and color my little pictures. Sigh.

Happy Saturday! I should be cleaning the house and organizing the basement storage unit and generally being a good person. But instead I am going to have ADVENTURES! I have shoes to pick up at a super far outlet store, and I have a massage scheduled, and I need to do recycling. A Grand Day Out.

Saturday Small Talk: A Cozy Evening Chat After My Very Lazy Day

Happy Saturday! I had a lazy morning, got delivery coffee, walked the dog, took a nap, then went and got a massage (including an Indian style head massage!), then picked up groceries, came home, walked the dog, did a puzzle, took another nap, walked the dog again, showered, and now here I am, all warm and cozy, and ready to finally write my Saturday post!

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away, as I Finally Remember to Post!

Happy Saturday! I had a lovely slow morning, then went over to the recycling place, then came home and started a sewing project, then left and went to a chiropractor, then came home and walked the dog again, and then got a message from the Upstairs People asking what we were doing for dinner, and then ordered dinner with them, and then went “whoops, I forgot to post!”

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Hide From the Cold!!!

Happy Saturday!!!! It is very cold here. Well, not VERY cold, it is fairly cold here. Cold enough that my usual Saturday routine of a very long dog walk and running over to the recycling center is not so appealing. So instead, I will stay by my space heater and do taxes!

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Blast Christmas in My Face!

Happy Saturday! I am fighting my feelings of stress and sadness and so on with LOTS OF CHRISTMAS. Our whole household is going to a Christmas tree farm this afternoon, this morning I am going to put up lights in front of the house, and I have a stupid holiday TV movie going while I do a Christmas puzzle right now. CHRISTMAS! Jesus was born to make me happy!

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Create a Dining Room!

I decided, I need a deadline. So I invited friends over for dinner on Monday IN THE DINING ROOM. I don’t have to empty all the boxes by then (these are very good friends), but I do have to at least make enough space to eat at the table. That should keep me busy for the rest of the weekend.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Work on BOATS!

Happy Saturday! Today is the day we take the sailboat out of the lake!!! Which involves a lot of confusion and complaining at each other, and then a nice relaxing relief feeling once it is done. Basically the same as any hard collective family task. Like putting up a Christmas tree.
