This is a question we ask the cats when we figure they’re up to no-good–what doin’, what doin’? It’s a question I’ve been asking of myself these past few days. What am I up to, and is it of any good?
The first week of summer break was spent with appointments and taking care of car and body.
We are heading out on the first road trip since 2019, and since I always get my car serviced right before summer, I figured it was good time to have a thorough checkup. All is well and ready. Both cars will need to be smogged (a California requirement for registration) by July but I can do that after we return.
Terry had his yearly eye exam and we both got COVID vaccine NUMBER SIX. Good grief. Is this our new normal? Vaccines very six months? This one made my joints ache. That’s a new after-effect for me. And because of that, I did very little “heavy lifting” around here for a few days. Bending, stooping, lifting…it all hurt.
So many little errands to run…over-stock to return to Target, cards to mail, groceries to buy, paperwork to drop off…then a dentist appointment. At the end of the week I prepped for my children’s message on Sunday–Pentecost. I came home from church, got a book, collapsed on the couch and stayed there for most of the afternoon. I did some watering in the backyard, but I just wanted to “veg.”
This week has no appointments or obligations. Our house sitter is coming one day this week to get all the details for her stay with our cat colony. I am so grateful to have found someone who can take on this task so we can be gone. The yard, house, and cats can be a full time job!
So, that’s what doin’ around here.
