What day is it? What time is it? To shower or not to shower. To dress or not to dress. Today I found the answer to our troubles. I was listening to Willie Nelson on my new DOT I got for my birthday while eating a salad standing at the kitchen sink. Does any of this sound familiar? I have no trouble entertaining myself, but missing everyone’s company. Mine is quite predictable at this point. I read, garden, but I’m up and night, asleep during the day. I look like something the cat dragged in with long hair.
The Main Street Facebook page keeps going, which I love doing, but writing on the blog has trickled to nothing. I’m not a worrier, but I can’t help but think bad thoughts about city hall with no one allowed in or attending the council meetings. Lordy-Lordy.
I wanted to check on everyone. Projects being ticked off, closets cleaned by the look of the Salvation Army box at Harris Teeters. If your garden is like mine, you’re getting high marks for all the weeding, moving bushes that were crowded out, mulch down, and the work paying off with beautiful gardens.
I want to leave you with this link to Willie Nelson’s song: The Worlds Going to Pot. Tap your foot, dance if no one is looking, and laugh out loud. Nelson providing the answer to what is going on. Stay well everybody, but please Lord, let’s get back to work soon. I for one have places to go, people to see, things to do on Main Street and lots of company raring to do the same things.
