I don't know what the day holds for me but I'm chomping at the bit to get outside!! I do have an herb club meeting tonight. We are supposed to be bringing a dozen of something tasty that will go with tea. I'm in a terrible dilemma. I don't know what to make!!
Sometime this week, I need to clean the house for company visiting us this week-end. I've also been wanting to clean out the chicken coop but it's still getting cold at night and I don't want to push it. Perhaps I'll clean out their run and wait just a wee bit longer on the coop. Cleaning the shelter house out is still looming over my head. Oh, how I hate to even start. This is one of those jobs I dread. Then I still have to clean the raspberry bed. That is a big, tedious job that needs to be accomplished soon. After all the above is finished I will be in better shape . . . but oh my. Keeping a place together isn't always fun and you don't necessarily get to do what you want to do. Sometimes you simply have to force yourself to jump in, like it or not, and do the job. That's kind of where I'm at - I've just got to make that initial jump!!! It would be nice if it was a minor matter of twinkle-toeing out to the herb garden and pinching off flowers and leaves for tea, dancing around making a cup, stirring in honey, humming a happy tune and sitting all prissy-like in the herb garden gazebo like a queen - BUT IT AIN'T LIKE THAT AT ALL. Ah, well, a Queen can dream, can't she?!
I didn't get a thing done today. I managed to develop a whopping migraine headache and that kind of fixed my day in stone. I went ahead and made a Grandmothers Pound Cake for herb club and reached into the cabinet and pulled out the self-rising flour which did not end well when the pound cake spilled over the sides of the pan and smoked up the house. Obviously, I threw a tantrum that no one could hear but started another pound case with all purpose flour this time. Talk about feeling stupid!! Meanwhile, my head is REALLY pounding now!! Geez!!! I may have to forego herb club tonight. Bummer!!! Talk to you all later - I'm going to try and ditch this head of mine.
