Yesterday, I did pretty much nothing, even though I planned to do things. I was going to go to the gym, go check on Mom, vacuum and mop. Instead I wrote two flash stories (or close to stories--maybe I should just call them vignettes) and played games on my Kindle. I meant to cook dinner and didn't. But it was all good. Sometimes we need days like that.
Today, I lazed this morning, as one should on a Sunday morning, then I showered and made the bed and went to the gym to lift weights and ride the bike, then I went to see Mom, came home and vacuumed and mopped the tile floors. The hubby vaccumed the living room carpets, so good for him! Now I'm going to relax until 4 when I will get up and make a fish & shrimp stew. I feel all acomplished now.
We're getting All the Rain today, which is such a good thing. It's a nice cold rain, too -- which is not so nice for us, but nice because that means that the mountains are most likely getting snow and not rain. We want LOTS and LOTS of snow up there so we'll have plenty of water come summer and irrigation time, and hopefully re-charging the groundwater reserves which have sunk dangerously low after four years of extreme drought. It's been raining at least since I got up before 7 am. I don't know what time it started. But oh, when I went to the gym, I found out just how COLD it is out there, and if I'd known, I probably wouldn't have been able to prod myself to go out into it, so I'm glad I didn't know. It was only 43 when I came home from seeing Mom, and that was about 12:15. And there's a really cold wind blowing. Brrrr. I just looked at some webcams up in the mountains and it's snowing like crazy. so YAY!
