I found that missing earring on the steps between the laundry room and garage. SO pleased because they're one of my very favorite pair and losing one earring is always so vexing.
Last week I received a lovely bird feeder for my birthday. It's a sage green color and when the cardinals perch on it, the color contrast is so striking. Mr. B and I went out last week to set it up and fill it. Between yard and garage I lost the big bag of birdseed because I set it someplace really clever where I'd be certain to find it. Do you ever do that? Seems I do that all the time--I've wandered all over the yard, garage and even inside the house looking for that darn bag of birdseed. How on earth does one lose a bag of birdseed? Sheesh.
At long last I booked an appointment with Dr. V (the most amazing chiropractor with an office conveniently located 5 minutes from my house). I do not limp anymore. Why I put off going in for so long is anyone's guess. It's marvelous not to have an aching foot. (I re-injured it from last summer's terrible sprain.) I never knew that you could displace bones in your feet, but I guess anything's possible.
After two days of presenting at the charter school, running errands and cleaning house I'm ready for a nice long day settled into a writing project. Tomorrow I plan to pick up the final loose threads of a nearly finished manuscript and pull the whole thing together. It's tough to transition from one project to another--all new characters, setting, voice, plot--I hope I'm productive.
