I just posted a blog I wrote early Monday morning–and today is Wednesday. I could have sworn that I had hit “publish”, but maybe I didn’t. Oh well. Sorry for the confusion just in case you have already seen it.
These late summer mornings are a great time to sit down and reflect, so here I am in the swing again, the sun trying to shine above the thin, spotting clouds. Ralph, our bassador, seems to be hunting under our shed. He goes out there, and barks. The only clue I have is that it looks like something may be under it. He is 11 years old and has arthritic pain in his hips and spine, so being active like this is good for him.
This Wednesday morning, though, my mind is numb. The rain that was suppose to leave almost 2 inches, left just under a half inch and the plants in the woodland flowerbed have not even lifted their foliage up. The wild ginger is the most obvious with its circular leaves lying flat on the ground. So, this morning, I give in to watering. It takes 30 minutes in 4-5 different spaces to complete the job and it is easy for me to get distracted, so I set a timer.
Setting a timer seems a little anal, but when I start one project, I have a tendency to get so engrossed that I forget everything else. Today I need to order my days so I can get things done without overlooking something or putting it off–again.
Having a dyslexic and ADD brain can be frustrating, but days are never boring. I certainly do not think linear (from point A to point B to Point C, etc.) and have a problem moving from one task to another. My brain works more like a maze: point A may be where I start, but it might be in walking to complete point A, I stumble into point Z which becomes the priority–at least until I shift and stumble into point
So here I sit in the swing, still sleepy from a less than 7-hour sleep, and the timer about to go off for the first sprinkler move, the dryer buzzer, too. And what have I accomplished? Only a bit of social network cleaning. Guess I had better close for now. Hope each of you have a delightful, productive, even restful day.
