Hot water

My goodness it’s been busy at work. Not only are the orders piling in (much to our delight) but there’s been a g’normous hand-job that the whole company has been in on (okay, not that kind, for those of you out there thinking it). It’s got to do with the Special Olympics, and it consists of over a million labels. And man, is our Team getting it done.

Oddly enough, those of us my age and older are finding out that certain things ail us after a day of manual labor. Things like aching backs, necks and feet (the foot complainer would be me). After I came home, I afforded myself a long hot bath. The ultimate in home relaxation, I always say.

Oh, and ahem… along with a nice glass of wine.

It gave me some time to breathe deeply and think, instead of sitting in front of the darn computer like some zombie. To contemplate my blessings and thank God for them. My wonderful family – I’d list them all but the circle is small just like my friends, so you know who you are! My loving guy, who is going back to work on what he hopes is a permanent basis, and is so excited about the opportunity. The overtime I got today, though it wasn’t much, every little bit helps for sure. The sweltering water that surrounded me at the time. The fact that it’s Wednesday, the day my favorite show Survivor comes on (and it looks to be an exciting episode). And that means… tomorrow is Friday Eve. 😀

Ever feel rushed, or like there’s not enough time in the day to get things done?

A little R&R

What a beautiful weekend it’s already turning out to be. Forecast today, sunny and 92 – tomorrow, rainy and 68. Yep, that’s a beautiful weekend all right. Already got some movies picked out for tomorrow’s rainy day, one of which we’re getting ready to watch right now, The Talented Mr. Ripley. It’s an older one that we’ve never seen, but came very highly recommended.

After two days of a liquid diet, I finally got some solid food in me last night. Good ole’ Cracker Barrel to the rescue. 😉 It was the most fabulous meal I’ve had in a very long time. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and fried okra (with ranch). I was in complete food heaven. Ah, the things we take for granted!

Hope everyone has a restful and relaxing weekend!!
