It’s Wine O’Clock on a Saturday. I wrote a blog post with that title once. Some may feel I have not earned a wine o’clock today, but to that person I will explain, “Shut up.” (With thanks to S.J. Perelman.)
I managed to sleep in till after 6:30 this morning. Ooh, did that feel good. Ooh, did the coffee taste good when I had some of that. I had not finished the first cup (I was nursing it) when I decided to go for my run.
What a run! It was a long run! It went up a long hill with some steep stretches! I got endorphins. The endorphins wore off (here’s a Freudian slip: I typed “whore” instead of “wore.” Damn immoral endorphins!) My computer thinks “endorphins” is not a word, but “endorphin” is. I like it with the “s.” Ooh, and look: on my headline, I added and “s” to “nap” to get “Snapped.” Let’s hear it for the letter s!
I’m still on my first glass of wine, by the way.
After my run, a shower and some breakfast, I wrote my postcards while Steven finished a letter I had started to a sister-in-law. I paused in the middle of that to put some stew beef in the crock pot for later consumption. Before walking to the post office, I messaged my friend Kim on Facebook about getting together later. When I got to the post office, I heard a voice say, “Hey, lady!” It was Kim. How serendipitous was that? We made plans to meet at noon.
We drove out to the Herkimer County Humane Society for their garage sale. I’ve gotten some good stuff at their garage sales! I found some good stuff today, but I can’t tell you want, because a couple of them are presents (don’t shake your head at me for buying presents at a garage sale; it’s reduce, reuse, recycle!). We looked at two other garage sales we had seen on the way out but did not find anything else to buy.
Next we went to T & J’s Fruits and Vegetables, at 221 Caroline St., Herkimer, to look at plants. I had it in mind to get my container garden together. I saw a lot of good stuff but suddenly was overcome with tiredness. Serious, my whole body just said, “I can’t possibly do this today.” However, I ascertained that the place is open tomorrow and Monday, so I do not despair of getting something done soon.
Kim and I had a couple of other stops in mind, but when she asked if I was too tired, I had to say I was. I got home in time to visit with Steven during his lunch hour. Then I took a damn nap. Yes, naps! I love naps! Before I slept, however, I started to read through the rehearsal script for The Tempest, which is LiFT Theatre Company’s summer Shakespeare production. I must begin learning my lines!
After the nap, I had a cup of tea and tried to recover at least a modicum of ambition. I succeeded to the extent of doing the dishes. Then I poured myself the glass of wine referenced in the first sentence and turned on Snapped, my favorite television show. And, as you see, I had enough ambition to make a 500+ word blog post. Yay me! Now to watch my show and crochet a little till it’s time to finish fixing supper. Happy Saturday, everyone!
