Whew. I'm sitting down with a cup of two o'clock coffee, a clementine, and a piece of buttered toast, giving my very fatigued arms a rest. It's been a cheerfully busy day--a great morning workout, oatmeal with grated apple and raisins, vacuumming, dusting, sweeping, an egg and veggie sandwich, picking up the forty-five thousand Lego starwars pieces strewn about the house, and putting our new flannel sheets on the bed. Now I sit and realize how pooped I am, listening to the washer chug away. But look at that list! I did all that! Every day I get new revelations that the iron is taking effect, that I am becoming well. I accomplish a whole list of tasks before I've even given thought to it and then--whoosh! I realize that I am actually walking around and doing lots of shit like a normal person. It's a good feeling, one that I can honestly say I've never had before.
Other goodness has happened today: new tires on the car (this makes my husband happier than I, but if he's happy, then I'm happy), putting on the good old Surfer Rosa album, sorting out my ever-growing collection of feathers from small to large, receiving a letter from a beautiful friend, and enjoying the air--oh the air! I keep going outside to swallow it up in big gulps. Cool but warm at the same time and just lovely. It feels like spring.
I think I'll go take the small one out into said air for a walk, then maybe have something fun for dinner--pancakes, anyone? With pecans and banana's? Mmmm. Indeed. After that, the store for a few items, then home to homework and bath/bedtime and a very large glass of wine for this girl.
What are your plans for the weekend?
