So I’ve gotten through most of Saturday before making my blog post and oh, what a day I have had! OK, not really, but it was pretty scattered. As I was working on one of my last chores/adventures of the day (and how much richer life is when one can feel the two are combined), I thought, “It used to be that on a Saturday when I had multiple adventures, I would spend the next week making multiple blog posts about them individually. Now I blow my wad (so to speak) on one Scattered Saturday post. What’s that all about?” (And here’s a Freudian slip I found on proofreading: I originally put “blog my wad” instead of “blow my wad.” Isn’t that awesome?) (Maybe I should have used that for the headline.)
I answered myself, “When I started this blog, I was in my late 40’s. Now I am in my mid-50’s. Who knew there could be such a difference in the decades?” It was a silly answer, because, quite frankly, I have to keep reminding myself that I am in my 50’s. For anyone who wants to know, I am 53, the same age as the Grinch (“Why for 53 years I’ve put up with it now! I MUST stop Christmas from coming! But how?”). I like being the same age as the Grinch. But this is not what I sat down to make a blog post about.
In fact, it is a little difficult to post right now, because I am sitting on my deck, and the sun is a little bright for computer screens. I stubbornly remain out here, though, because I brought out all the cushions for our chairs. I could have just brought out two, one for my butt, one for my feet (naturally one puts one’s feet up on the weekend). Then I brought out for for Steven, who should arrive home in about an hour. Then I brought out the fourth, because it seemed unkind to exclude just one (yes, I anthropomorphize chair cushions; I anthropomorphize EVERYTHING, I thought you knew that about me).
Where was I? Ah yes, on the deck, admiring what I can see of my container garden so far. I feel I should purchase more plants, more pots and more dirt, going overboard as I have in years past (last year being a notable exception). The important thing is, I have basil. Fresh pesto, you will be mine! I’m sure some of my readers will appreciate it if I post pictures. I’ll be doing that one day soon. For right now, I’m sitting with my feet up and drinking a beer. Happy Saturday, everyone.
