A Day in the Life of a Middle-Aged Female


Thursday Thirteen

These are 13 things I found to do today. Now, please don't be jealous of my exciting life~

1. First thing, started off with my protein shake and got the girls their treats. (Shouldn't that count as two?2. Read the paper, including doing the crossword puzzle (finished it all except for one clue!).

3. Went to the back door and watched the construction workers build a humongous
retaining wall three houses down. It towers over the yard by about 20 feet. The poor homeowner says he feels like he's in a penitentiary.

4. Went out back, dead-headed some posies and picked up dog
poop. (It's getting more exciting!)
(No, I refuse to post a pic of dog poo!)
5. Watched the construction guys again.

6. Gathered up all of the dark colored sweats and put them in the washer.

7. Went in and had a chat with the boys (birds). Spanky wasn't in a very good mood so
I brought him a small piece of wheat bread, which puts him in a mellow mood.

8. Went back and watched the construction guys some more.

9. Checked for mail. Brought in mail. Threw away most of it.

10. Brought in an art project I have been working on - I took it outside to spray with polyurethane. Don't know yet what I will do with said art project.

11. Watched some news but turned it off quickly. When will this stupid political crap stop?

12. Did more laundry; folded same and put away.

13. Worked on re-arranging my closet and watched the construction guys again.

Ah, a day in the life. B-O-R-I-N-G. But at my pace.

If you visit my T13 (13 reasons for me to stay in bed) you will see just how terribly constructive and motivated you actually were!

And the bird is just gorgeous.

Happy TT! You can find mine here if you like.

Brought in mail - threw away most of the mail. Hmmm, that sounds so familiar!

At least you've got some construction guys to watch!

Honey, do you have a thing for construction guys? Just asking. My day is even more boring than yours. Well, if I'm at the boat no, but at home...even more boring. Big hug and have a great day. :)

LOL!! I was going to ask the same thing about the construction workers :) Around our house it would probably be "sit on the back porch with a book but get distracted continuously by the foul-mouthed kids playing basketball on the other side of the fence". You've got it good! :)
