Good Intentions Went by the Wayside

I set my schedule today to include an 8 a.m. kick-off breakfast in Tacoma (45 minute drive) for a fundraising event benefiting the American Cancer Society. My calendar also showed a late morning block for a manicure and pedicure, followed by a visit to the hospital to see RN. He is still there recuperating after his quintuple bypass heart surgery.

I did not feel much like getting out of bed today. I have yet to jump in the shower. It is one of those "blah" days. I am not even sure what is going on and why I am feeling so slow to start today.

So, my plans have changed.

I will get showered and dressed, and head to the library to return the two seasons of "The Good Wife," which I finished last night.

I also need to return two other books, that lexiconlover recommended to me. I tried reading them both (same author), and I just could not get past the first 50 pages with either of them.

Tonight, I need to pick up my 83-year-old friend, and we are going to meet others for dinner to celebrate our birthdays. His was the 3rd; mine the 10th.

Other than that, my day will be uneventful (with planned activities), as I will just do what feels right for me.

Praying this loss of get-up-and-go turns out to be of the 24 hour variety and tomorrow finds you full of vim and vigor.

Thanks. Heading to the library now.

Well, hey, it's YOUR day and YOUR life -- you're entitled to do as you please. : )

I didn't meet my goals today. i had hoped to finish at least two blogs posts, but I stayed up too late last night to finish a book, slept until 11, and then got into a longer than usually conversation with my husband after breakfast. I couldn't even start working until 1:30. By the time I finished some maintenance on my blogs and played around on myLot, the day was about over. About all I finished was my daily city photo blog post and a post here on Persona Paper about the legal thriller I was finishing last night. Now it's about bedtime.

I hope you are having a great day and party with your friend.

*in my best little kid voice, as I stomp my foot* Yeah! And no one is the boss of me!

BarbRad I am guessing that you are one of the hardest working people I know. You are always involved in a project. I admire you for that. And sometimes, conversations are needed. emoticon :smile:

There were only 5 of us. We went for dinner.

Paulie wrote on August 15, 2015, 12:17 AM

May i ask what kind of great food you had for dinner?

I have days like that, no amount of tea will get me moving!

I had a birthday coupon for a restaurant called "Elmers." They offer for one's birthday, what they call a "German Pancake" which is like a Dutch Baby. It reminds me of what our British/Aussie/NZ friends here might call their pancakes, unlike the American style. It's more like a huge crepe with turned up edges (http://eatatelmers.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/elmers_menu_german_pancake.jpg). It has powdered sugar, butter, and squeeze lemons over it. You can also get it with some sort of fruit topping, if you want it. I got the plain one, but upgraded the pancake to a meal for a few dollars more. So, I got the pancake, two poached eggs, two chicken apple sausages, and a cup of coffee for $5.21 with tax, plus the tip.

I am the same. Tea or coffee.
My favorite tea is Earl Grey with double bergamot. YUM.

Rufuszen wrote on August 16, 2015, 2:17 PM

There is only one tea and that is Earl Grey. I do have a 'guest' tea each month just to ring the changes. I use loose leaf tea, I doubt if makes the taste any better, but I enjoy the ritual.

CoralLevang wrote on August 16, 2015, 2:52 PM

I agree about the Earl Grey, but occasionally find the double bergamot, which is rare. Do you use an infuser, or do you put the leaves in the pot/cup and steep it right in it?
