And just like that, another weekend is gone.

So what did I do that was so engrossing that I couldn't blog?

Nothing. I didn't blog because my head these days is so full of stuff that sometimes when I go to write my fingers stop working. Too many words.

What I did do was stay home on Saturday, and I spent my time cleaning the house. My house is not a dirty place but it does get cluttered, particularly with catalogues and books and similiar things. So I sorted and tossed and dusted and in general things look much better and I was gratified.

Saturday night, with poor choices for TV, we played the Wii. We played the DECA sports game and in particular enjoyed the snowboarding and the motorcross racing.

Then we pulled out the Wii Play disc, where we laughed a lot as we raced one another on the backs of cows.

As we were putting things away, something slid from the pile where I'd put all the Wii things until I could find a storage box.

It was a disc. Odd. A disc I'd not seen before, still unopened in its package.

It was the Wii Sports disc that I thought was supposed to come with the Wii (the one with bowling and golf and tennis) but hadn't found. Apparently we'd overlooked it and the angels decided we should find it.

Sunday we went to Roanoke. First we went to the nursing home and visited my great aunt. She was feeling better than the last time we saw her and I was grateful for that.

Then we went to Walmart in Salem and then to Macadoo's for a sandwich.

After we ate, we went to Home Depot, Sportsman's Warehouse, Sam's Club and Gander Mountain. Then we visited my sister-in-law and her husband and my nephews.

Then we went by the grocery store.


I was worn out by the time we made it home. After dinner we played with the Wii Sports disc a while. Then my husband read some things he is reading for work and I read a book and then we fell into bed.

I, of course, had vivid dreams all night long last night.

I dreamed that I had taken allergy medication as prescribed and then for some reason I drank an entire glass of whiskey - straight. Then I worried that if I fell asleep I would die from the chemical reaction, so I was going around telling everyone not to let me go to sleep.

Is it any wonder I woke up a little tired this morning?


  1. I dreamed that I had two flat tires in my old car and that Mark Shields from PBS was the mechanic I went to. I'm still trying to figure that out. I think it has to do with this election season.

    I fear my house is dirty AND cluttered.

  2. How exhausting! I hate dreaming dreams that leave me tired.

    I think running lots of errands in town leaves me more tired that a full day on the farm. But alas we are not so self-sufficient that I can get away with that. Yet.

    We don't have a WII, but they sound like lots of fun. Our entertainment these days is John Adams, courtesy Netflix. Abigail is my new hero.

    Hope you have a great week, full of inspiration.

  3. Ginger - that John Adams series is great. We loved it.

    We bought the Wii specifically because TV is so poor and to facilitate our time spent together. So far it is doing what we hoped. I also wanted it for exercise but I haven't bought the programs for that yet.

  4. And I thought I had a busy weekend! I hope next weekend involves more R & R for both of us.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
