Busy Little Bee

May 12th, 2010

  On those days when I wake up and seem to be going through the motions in a fog, I find that sometimes the only thing that will help is a fresh cup (or two) of coffee.   There are days when I can make it through on one or two cups for an entire day, but others when one or two cups barely get me started. 

Today is one of those days.  I’ve had three cups so far, and my ‘to do’ list keeps growing, but I’m not complaining.   I’m happy that I’m able to do the things that I need to do, even though I wouldn’t mind taking a little nap on this rainy day.

I have a friend visiting tomorrow at 11, so I need to get everything done in the house before she arrives tomorrow morning.  Marcel will be snoozing in the morning, since he has to work all night, so vacuuming won’t be an option, plus I need to get some work done in the morning before she arrives, so that will keep me busy. 

In addition, I have a birthday to attend this afternoon-   Desere’s oldest son turns 15 today (Happy Birthday Tom!), plus we found out that our weekend away is going to happen so I’ve been trying to put a few things together that I’ll need in the kitchen.   I don’t want to have to go to the grocery store while we are away and dinner is going to be something easy, (like chicken soup)  since I’m definitely not going away for the weekend to spend hours in the kitchen.    Now I just hope that this nasty weather will clear and that we’ll actually have some blue skies and sunshine.   Warmer temps wouldn’t be bad either, but I’ll settle for blue skies and sunshine.

Since I forgot to mention that I have a few flowers to plant today, I’d better get out of here and get that done.   I found some red basil yesterday and some rosemary, so I decided to add them to my little herb garden.   I also found two carnation plants, which I bought in remberance of Carol-  they were her favorites.   I stood in the store and cried, but more on that later.  Right now, I really should dash and maybe brew myself another cup or two of coffee.

    Sounds like your herb garden is coming along nicely. I for one, can’t even contemplate the day without a coffee kickstart.

    I saw some red basil the other day while I was out with friends and I’ve never had it that I know of, and not sure of the difference, but saw some yesterday along with some rosemary and decided to add them. The mint is a little out of control, but I can’t wait for some mint tea.

    I can’t either Bethany- I went away saturday without having any- thinking I’d get some at the train station, but the cafe wasn’t open, so I had to wait an hour and a half- and then I had Starbucks- just plain ole’ starbucks with a little milk. It was good. On the way home- I had whgat my brother calls the fru-fru coffee… non-fat latte with sugar free hazelnut syrup. It was go0od too, but I think they had a lil too much milk.

    Hope y’all are doing great :)
