What if today really had been the end?
"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives."
~Annie DillardFor my part, I spent today thusly: First I got up early and fed my family, then we piled in the car and drove about 40 minutes to a barn sale I'd seen advertised earlier in the week. We hit a few more yard sales on the way home, and got three phenomenal deals (I think). Then we went to my brother-in-law's house, and helped him pack up to move to his new place. I watched the children with his wife while the Mad Scientist helped unload on the other end. Then we came home and I sacked out with Monkey3 in the recliner. (Seriously, I have NO idea why I was so tired, but I'm suspicious my youngest brother being here, keeping us up 'til all hours catching up, may have had a bit to do with it.) I awoke to a lovely dinner cooked by my beloved, and now he's out playing ball in the yard with Monkey1. I just finished a tour of my garden, which is making very nice progress at this point. So, overall, it was a wonderful Saturday. Hopefully, the Mad Scientist will spend tomorrow on a planter behind a pair of draft horses. (It's rest if you don't have to do it during the week!) Maybe I'll take some pictures this time. Have a restful weekend!
