Today has been so busy. Yesterday was so busy. Vince and I were talking today and I told him I think what makes me so tired is when I have 5 minutes to sit, then do something else and 5 minutes to sit and that goes on all day. I need big chunks of time . . like an hour to sit and maybe do some stitching or reading but sitting, knowing I have to be back up and going again in a few minutes but no real time to do anything like stitch or knit or read . . that’s what wears me out.
This morning I got up earlier than normal to get the garden watered because I had a dermatology appointment at 10. Vince had a doctor’s appointment at almost the same time across town so he left a bit before I did. He got home a few minutes before I did. We took both dogs out and left again. Today was Azure Standard pickup day. I’m sure I don’t have the numbers right but I think our coordinator said when she started the group two or three years ago, there was just one other person besides herself and now it’s well over 100 . . close to 200 I think. I had never seen as many people as there were there today. The truck usually has a couple of pallets for our group and I think there were at least four today. There was an entire pallet of just grains!
I had already told our coordinator we might not get there on time – with doctor appointments at 10 and 10:30, we had to meet back at the house, then go to Carthage for an 11:30 drop. But, both doctors were fast and we got to the drop location about 5 minutes before the truck arrived.
Came home and I was starting to heat up lunch. The pharmacy called and Vince’s meds were ready so he said “let’s go get the meds and grab lunch out” so we did. There were a few things I needed at Walmart so we stopped by there and got what I needed. Then we went and ate, got home and had the Azure haul to deal with. That meant dumping grain into buckets, adding oxygen absorbers, lids, labeling and putting it all away. One thing I got was 25 pounds of carrots. Not sure if I’ll freeze dry those or can them. That’s a decision for tomorrow.
For now, I’m going to sit and cross stitch!
