On Dancing in the Sunshine:

Some mini Daffies I have in my yard.

Yesterday I got a lot done. Six loads of laundry was washed, dried, folded and put away. (Along with other household chores.) It was a nice blustery day so the clothing dried fairly fast.

We finished getting all the leaves out of the meditation labyrinth. Despite fighting with the wind for the leaves. (We still have to fix the rocks that mark the path.)

I got further in a video game or two. (I love those silly ’find the things on the list’ or ‘match the things’ games.) I use them to help with my short term memory problems. I didn’t like them at first when the doctor told me to give them a try after the chemo. Now I’m addicted.

Mountain Man worked on next years wood pile most of the day.

After finishing yet another cotton wash cloth, I ripped out a few inches of a sock and fixed a shortened stripe that I had some how miscounted. And I knitted beyond the point I had been when I found the mistake. It’s a pair of knee socks in black and purple stripes, for my Dr. Martin boots, done in stockinet. A shame to hide them really, but I love my boots too.

We walked down to the mailbox at the end of our quarter mile long driveway with the dogs. We hadn’t been taking them that far for a while now. Mountain Man had to carry Lady Short back home. She couldn’t make it back on her own steam. I don’t think she will be going with us ever again.

In the late afternoon we found the time to talk a little and Mountain Man repented of his lack of enthusiasm about dancing. We tangoed in the yard for a while and even experimented with a few new dance steps.

All in all it was a pretty good day.

I miss wearing Docs, my last pair fell to pieces and were replaced by laced up fell/motorbike boots which were more practcal on the bike and I used Dickies as everyday boots. Always fancied a pair of painted Docs, maybe one day...
