Well, the wedding is today and Bill should be having a great time - at least I hope he is! There was a breakfast this morning, the wedding in the afternoon, and the reception in the evening. Saw a couple of pictures posted on FB and looked like it was a grand time.
As for me, I was busy here at home. I did some of my usual Saturday chores - straightening, vacuuming, planning Sunday dinner, etc. I also worked an hour or so on my water storage supply. It was time to empty and refill the old containers. I used a lot of the old water for watering my plants, etc., but there was still more water than I needed. Now they are all full of fresh water and dated and neatly back on the shelves. I also inventoried it to make sure I had the proper amount stored. Everything looks good. I still have the water barrel that is not filled. I am not sure how to convince Bill that it is important! Even without it, I have the minimum suggested amount stored. I just think the minimum is not really enough!
It was such a cool, beautiful day today that I wanted to be outside a little, too. So I took a little time and deadheaded a bunch of the flowers. Hopefully, that will encourage them to keep blooming. I also trimmed a few other plants that were in need of it. That was just about enough outside work for me! I love flowers and a beautiful garden, but it is not something I like to do.
I did a bunch of stuff at the computer, too. I took my lunch and dinner breaks and watched Little Dorritt, my latest Netflix choice. It is the old Dickens story and is just as one would expect - dark, dreary, debtors prison, and full of unbelievable coincidences. I have never read the book and, while I will watch the rest of the series, I will certainly not bother reading it.
I did finish my latest book - stayed up until midnight to do so. It was Heaven is Here by Stephanie Nielson. I had reserved the book from the library based on a recommendation from someplace, Goodreads maybe? Anyway, I didn't realize it was the story of the young Mormon mother who was burned over 80% of her body in a plane crash. I had heard of her before and have seen a video of her, but didn't realize this was her story. It was quite good - a lot about hope and the power of family to help us heal. Well worth reading.
And thus I had my very busy day all alone!
