MY DAY: Wednesday after 6 PM

My plan this morning, after feeding and pottying the pups, and eating breakfast while Zooming with my son, was to move into the living room at 9 AM to begin the purging and cleaning with a time allotment of two hours.

Well, I am thinking I fell asleep during the 7:15 AM Zoom session as I don’t remember much after about ten minutes of chatting. I did wake at 11 AM, still sitting up with my laptop on the hospital table in front of me.

By 11 AM, my schedule indicated I should be working in the kitchen for two hours with a three-hour break following.

Well, since I had already abused my intended schedule, I grabbed No. 17 to downtown where I dined at my favorite Chinese buffet haunt, moving through the Oregon District to take photos.

Back at The Haasienda, I ended up taking a nap from 3 PM – 4:15 PM! I fed the dogs, blew some of the leaves in the front yard, and at 5 PM, I began the living room tackle. Well, three bookcases are now purged of books I do not need, read, or want. There are some books I have had since childhood but if they are taken to 2nd & Charles Bookstore at Town & Country, I hope another child might find delight in them.

I scheduled myself in the front room (it’s really the house’s living room but it is only used for a studio lesson waiting room) from 6 – 8 PM so I am actually ahead of schedule but still have a good deal to go in the room that replicates Thomas Jefferson’s idea of a showcase of his interests in the front hall of Monticello. My entrance room displays my love for President & Mrs. Lincoln, The Wright Brothers, The White House, and The Presidents. One wall also shares my passion for photography with some photos that were taken 25+ years ago.

My break is over. Be assured I have made it a great day!
