And then it was Sunday...

I woke up at an amazing 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, May Day! It had rained steadily overnight and everything was still drippy.

Sidebar: I forgot to tell you that I put the rain gauge out yesterday. I know just how much my loyal readers love to hear "exactly" how much rain we got here in Redford.

So, I checked the aforementioned rain gauge and we had 3/4 of an inch of rain overnight.

Which means my wheelbarrow and transfer shovel are sitting out, rusting. Sigh...

I eased into the day, since outside work would have to wait. I was refilling my pill box when I discovered I only had six vitamins left (I take Centrum Silver, in case you were wondering). Dammit!

So, after I finished winding the clock, watering the snake plant and my three tomatoes, shaving and showering, I got dressed in my "going to the store" clothes. I went over to CVS and got more vitamins (wish I'd known that yesterday - I hadn't planned on going out today.)

Back home, I treated the cat (another thing I hadn't planned on) and changed into my work clothes. I stripped the bed and put the bedding in the washer (last load of the weekend). It was just damp outside and not raining, so I went out back.

I tried the sand and it was really HEAVY. So, I gave up and just parked the wheelbarrow and the transfer shovel in the shed. I locked the shed and went inside. So much for working outside, today...

Inside, I made up the bed. Then I made a late brunch. I sliced an onion and fried it in canola oil. I sliced up the last two baked potatoes and added them to the frying pan. When they were brown, I pushed them aside, added some butter and three eggs. I ate until I was full and pitched the rest.

Then I took a nap.

When I woke up, it was still crappy outside, so I started cleaning the house (well, maybe not "cleaning," more like tidying up).

I had thawed out some pasta meat sauce that was in the freezer. I warmed that up while I cooked a box of rotini. I put the two together to get happy while I ate a small salad. Then I topped a bowl of the pasta with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Tasted great!

I ended the day watching TV.


  1. Brunch sounds yummy!

  2. Must you complete all available days when filling the pill box? I should think six of seven would be sufficient and you could wait until tomorrow to put on your going to the store clothes.

  3. I live by routine man. You mess with the routine and you mess with the universe!!!
