It is almost noon and I must face facts, I am lazy today. I told MK and Mike this morning at breakfast, before heading out to the gym that I was having a “Rich Day.” Mary Kay laughed and said that a “Rich Day” is nothing more than a day I spend in running around the house doing things. She is right, but I am not sure what I should have called it.
I am still in my leather easy chair but I do have my beloved laptop with me. I have spent the morning messing around with blogorganization, making sure that I have everything properly documented and filed. I have done some e-mailing and also a short translation from French into English for Christine in France, who requested that I go over something for a special “Fair Trade” exhibition taking place in a Strasbourg church in the near future featuring bronze statues from Burkina Faso. It amazes me that a small piece of my work might soon be sitting in a French church. It also just occurred to me that I forgot to mention to Christine, although with her English I am sure she is aware, that I used the American spelling of mold which would be mould in British English. Oh well…
Yesterday was absolutely wonderful with Samantha but for some reason it flattened me a bit! I fell asleep in my chair during her afternoon nap, something I don’t do all that often. I thought about it and realized that I have really been terribly busy, so why not just have a plain old lazy day?
I had a great workout at the gym early in the morning. Mike’s was less successful as he was dealing with Charlie’s somewhat unexpected exercise routine that “confused” his own a bit. Mine was going along just fine, some cardio, my shoulder/chest machines, and then a “super” cardio finish because somehow having Michael next to me on a treadmill had me working harder than I otherwise might have.
So, I came home, did some organization, a bit of translation, and am quietly sitting finishing up the herbal tea I prepared. Lunch, perhaps? Darn, I am going to have to prepare it myself!
I also did some work for MK’s upcoming birthday. As usual, I will set some “grenades and bombs” of confusion about what will take place and about what she might be receiving for this particular “big” birthday that she wants no hubbub about. I love the element of surprise and the stress as one wonders exactly what is going to happen. Honestly, I haven’t done much planning…or have I? Since she reads this blog, perhaps I am setting her up from this vantage point. On the other hand, is her birthday this month or next month? She knows me too well, I am not the normal husband, I remember these things. My mother trained me well, Queen of Hallmark that she was!
So, although I am blogging later in the day than normal, at least I got to it! Still keep wondering…the day is young, there are all kinds of mischief I can get involved in!
