Whew, what a day! After a couple of hours of karaoke last night, I suddenly realized I was wiped out and decided to call it an early night. By early, I mean 23:00. As I was dozing off last night, I promised myself I wouldn’t get up at 7 this morning and even turned off my alarm. I figured I’d get up, spread the seed and fertilizer at a leisurely pace, and then do my typical weekend chores (clean out the black tank, clean the camper, and do laundry). Well, I lied.

Admittedly, it wasn’t 7:00, but 7:30 feels close enough that I kinda chided myself for getting up so early. But the same thing happened this morning that happens most mornings: I wake up, think about just how much I need to get done, and then decide that if I don’t get started right away, I won’t be able to finish. On the plus side, I do usually finish the tasks I set for myself, but on the other hand, waking up in not-quite-panic-but-close mode is kinda frustrating.

Anyway, it’s been an incredibly busy but productive day. I got 1400 pounds of grass seed and fertilizer spread, got the animals’ water cleaned out and refilled (no freezing weather again for several days–yay!), got the spreader properly greased so that maybe the flow control lever won’t be completely stuck next time, got the black tank and the camper cleaned, and now I’m waiting on the laundry to finish in the washer. If all goes well, I might be done by 14:00. Then I want to do some more writing. Got another fun scene written last night, and I’m hoping that I might be able to finally finish the “short” story that’s now at almost 15k words.

For now, I think I’m gonna rest my eyes. Sun feels good shining in through the windows, and the breeze is nice, so it seems like a good time for it.
