Why Am I Busy on a Saturday??

Usually on Saturday I do nothing.  Because, well, even during a pandemic, it's freakin' Saturday and you're not supposetd to work hard, right?  But then there a Saturday when, even if you are not "working" per se, you get a lot done, and then it's 3:00 p.m. and you say to yourself, "Huh?" 

That was me today.  I had a haircut first thing this morning, which did mean I actually got myself in gear earlier than usual.  Usually on Saturday mornings, I'm sitting around in my pjs until at least 9 a.m., and then not even really doing anything the rest of the day.  But when I got home, I decided that I was going to try a new coffee cake recipe I'd found, and I needed nuts for that, so I walked to the market.  Came back, made the recipe, and then while it was baking, washed a load of sheets.  Then I washed the dishes that piled up from breakfast and my baking, folded and put away the sheets, and then decided there was just a bit of stuff that needed put away that was piled in a closet.  And then decided that I was itchy from my haircut and took a shower.  

And just like that - whoosh! - it was 3:00 p.m.!  How did that happen?  And why was I so busy doing useful things on a Saturday???  

Clearly I need to sort out my priorities ...

In other news, Hamlet is feeling better.   Thank you so much for your well wishes for him, all of us appreciate them.  The vet said that he thinks he might have a soft tissue injury in his shoulder.  He gave us the canine equivalent of Tylenol to give him twice a day, and recommended lots of rest.  If he is not doing better by Monday, we are to take him over to the vet's office again for x-rays.  But so far, he seems to be doing a whole lot better.  Of course, getting a pill in some peanut butter twice a day is just fine with him, as is resting a lot (yep, he's our dog for sure!).  But we are glad he seems to be responding so well, both for him and for our credit card bill.

And that's the news from here.  We have a end-of-Thanksgiving weekend Zoom call tomorrow afternoon with my sisters and some of the nephews and nieces, so that should be fun.  And no other specific plans, which is also fine with me. 

You know, especially since I "worked" so hard today.  😜

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Sometimes it feels good to have a productive day off. I have been getting ready for my daughter and family to move in with us temporarily, so every day has to be productive around here for the time being. Glad that Hamlet is improving. It's not fun seeing our pets I pain.

Sounds like you got more done today than I have since March LOL! So glad to hear Hamlet is feeling better.

So glad to read that Hamlet is doing better.

Today was a tidy up day around here. Stephen left to go back home to Virginia and there were piles and piles of linens to get washed up and back where they belong.

I'm weird ... I actually find laundry relaxing. I love the smell of fresh sheets and towels.

I am happy to hear Hamlet is better. Getting pills in big dogs is pretty easy I imagine. Getting them into fussy little ones is almost impossible. I still have the bottle of pills here that the vet gave me for Pup's injuries.

So glad that Hamlet seems to be on the mend.

I had a bit of a busy Saturday myself. I wasn't sure why, either, but it actually felt good to do something. We're getting a big storm here tomorrow, with sn*w on Tuesday, so perhaps I'm somehow getting ready for that.
