Day Ten Thousand, Five Hundred and Ninety-three

Actually it is only Day Number 3 of my

Summer Vacation Plan

which went something like this:

Up at 5:30 am, coffee and some news watching. Answered emails. Went back to bed and slept for two wonderful hours. Then it was laundry, some general administrative work stuff, and more laundry. Then laundry, some house cleaning and laundry. Some dog walking and some more laundry. Cooked dinner, transferred the young chickens from the duck stall to the chicken stall. Scattered a trail of feed for the dumb ducks to lure them into their now empty house. If they opt to stay outside again, that is their choice. Now I am going to do one more load of laundry and then continue catching up on blog friends . . .

It is also Day Number 10,593 of my married life*. 29 years ago today I got married to a man who is currently on a 10-day fishing trip in Sweden.** Even so, roses mysteriously appeared this morning. They were in my favorite Christmas present from said man this year – a very silly vase which I just love. Yes, that is a picture of me holding my favorite chicken, Winnie. Ly took it.


* That is 29 x 365 + 7 (leap year days) + 1 (today).
**  They say “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and you will get a whole weekend to yourself.” In my case, it is a bit longer. But then, it is probably better that he is NOT here while I am executing The Plan . . .

  1. Happy anniversary! I am stymied by how these roses appeared in your favorite vase when your honey is away on a fishing trip, but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. I do not own enough clothing and linens to equal that many loads of laundry. I like the idea of a 2-hour morning nap though, it obviously increases productivity. Go, 227! 🙂


  2. Laundry can never be done unless you are naked while doing it and all the kids and husband are away at camp or something. Happy anniversary and congrats for what appears to be a very happy and healthy partnership.


  3. Must have overlooked this post – how cute of Pete to send you roses. mind you, it’s been #28 to remember – remarkable, really. sweetheart has trouble, remembering his own birthday 🙂
    Cute vase – never knew what he actually intended to do with the files…. I like the form of the vase.
