serious Oracle

Homeownership'll take it out of you

I'm so very tired. It is astonishing how much this move, and the subsequent house-ly stuff, has taken out of me. All my creative energy has been sapped. I'm sleepy far more than I ought to be. The work commute sucks, as I have no choice but to drive. That is a lot of time in the car in which I can neither read nor write. Too, running errands eats up the time I might have to do both of those things.

All this and my house still is not in order. Ah, well. It will get there, and I will get my energy back.

Please do not think I'm whinging. There are good things aplenty!
-I planted two of my window-boxes today - I simply forgot to get flowers for the third. Mayhap on Sunday. I also planted two of the beds near the house. One has snapdragons, petunias, pinks and something else that I forgot the name of. The other has rosemary, mint, oregano, thyme and basil. I truly hope they all grow. I truly hope the deer don't see this and say "Woo-hoo! Buffet!"
-The weather is beyond gorgeous today: low 70s (fahrenheit), partly cloudy, low humididty. I read out on the deck for half an hour before making my flower run. The kitties were in the sunroom windows, watching me and occassionally meowing.
-I want to write. I may not have the time or energy, but the desire is there and for that I am glad.
-I really do love this house. It has quirks aplenty, but despite the state of unpackedness and the tiny kitchen and the general dissaray, it feels like home. It is home. And it is so very lovely, looking out my window and seeing trees and mountains and birds and flowers and sky, oh so much sky.
