Ending the Day in Heaven

Today was a good day. I got a lot of things done. Hopping from one thing to the next I stayed busy all day.

I started by completing about half of a newspaper preservation project I’m working on. It took a few hours to photograph and encapsulate the pages of a newspaper that is over 100 years old. I also completed research associated with the Battle of Puebla and Cinco de Mayo. Maybe if I’m lucky, I will finish the entire project by tomorrow night for my friend and her family.

Now that it is starting to warm up it’s nice. It was the first day I was able to hang clothes out on the line. Clothes are softer straight out of the dryer, but it wastes so much energy. During the winter I wait patiently for the chance to use my clothes line.

After that I moved from: planting sunflowers in just the right spot; to filling up a swimming pool equip with toys for D; to listening to Tank while getting my tan on; to grilling it up; to cleaning up; and then to washing dishes. See? No liquor on Friday night and eating right obviously payed off today!

I ended the night in sheer heaven (oh, I mean the bathtub) surrounded by my beloved candles. I don’t use the tub often because I feel bad about wasting water. Once in a while it is a glorious treat! It was great to close the day listening to my chimes in the wind while emerged in luxurious bubbles.

Time for some sweet dreams.

    Reading your post made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. [goes take a bubble bath… http://bit.ly/10g9Pra lolol..]

    Being good to yourself always helps when you have to go the extra mile. 😉

  2. If I knew nothing else about you, I’d have known you’re from New Mexico from the “wasting water” comment. (I married a NM gal once.) Here on the east coast, we would call such a bath required use. It does look a lot like heaven in there.

      Haha… That’s funny and interesting. Actually Bill, even if I lived on the East Coast it is likely I would feel just the same. The older I get, the more important it all becomes. I just wished I had cared as much 10/20 years ago. Recycling, energy efficiency, conservation, preservation— it’s all important to me! 🙂 I’m also an archivist, so maybe history and caring for precious things has consumed my soul! Haha… Heavenly- indeed it was!
