A week ago Friday I had the opportunity to meet another blogger, Martha, of Lookin' Up. She had to go to Oswego and detoured over my way for an afternoon visit. John & I enjoyed meeting her and her son and Country Girl was able to join us too. She brought me some delicious blueberries and a pretty plant that has been traveling around the garden looking for the perfect spot.
I puttered away the weekend in the garden, read a book and caught up on ironing so that I'd have something to wear to work.
The alarm clock went off way too early Monday morning. I have to be in at my regular time for summer school. There had been a problem on the bus the week before so that all got dumped in my lap first thing. The kids didn't give me any problem but Monday & Tuesday were unpleasant and frustrating days.
Summer school finishes early and I don't have time to get to Mom's between runs so we went Monday afternoon. This is harder for her because she tends to doze in the afternoon. We finally did get a few weeds pulled but not enough that anyone else would notice.
The rest of the week found me in a funk and I have no idea why. I got very little done, read some books, spent time in the garden and did a bit of baking on the cool days. I spent very little time online so I am way behind with my regular reading.
I had stocked up on cigarettes before the new tax hike went into effect and they ran out. NYS is giving out a free two week pack of nicotine patches. So Friday I quit, again. Since I've quit many times before I'm not holding my breath. The first few days are always the hardest so I picked this weekend beacuse I'll be busy and with non-smokers. Who knows, maybe this time it will work.
