As is Lloyd’s custom on a 3-day weekend, he does not feel well. I’d go into a big rant about it, but when I tried to remember when the last 3-day weekend was that this happened, it was Easter, and that was right before he went to the hospital. (Yikes!) So, I’m shutting up about that, except to mention that he doesn’t sleep well with all the nose-blowing and coughing, so he slept until noon yesterday and it looks like today will be much the same.
Yesterday I was productive while he slept. I’m trying to learn how to make good pancakes from scratch, and so I tried some with whole wheat flour. They were ok.
Then I went out to mow the gigantic grass in our yard that had all gone to seed. I made it almost once around the perimeter when:
Dang. I fixed it, but we need a new mower.
Lloyd was up and felt well enough to go looking at computers (and now mowers), so we drove into Omaha. On the way we stopped to admire a fairy circle. Other people were stopping, too. We didn’t know that it had been mentioned in the newspaper.
I needed something to eat in Omaha, so I ordered a cheeseburger from Burger King. It tasted a little funny, but I just kept eating. Finally I stopped to look at it. “What the heck am I eating?” Barbeque sauce and onion rings?? On the burger?? Oh.
So all in all, a pretty good day. Today I’ve got lots of gumption to get lots of things things done around the house. Have a great Labor Day weekend!
