Today I got outside and cleaned up the flower bed and planted some of the bulbs I bought recently. I planted daffodils, hyacinths and tulips. I still have tons more to plant, but got weary of doing it this afternoon. I may have over purchased. The smell of mint is strong in the flower bed. It hasn’t completely died out.
It was a beautiful day today, but we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow so thought I’d better take advantage of the day. I cut back some of the perennials, but left a few that haven’t quite died out. I figure the snow will take care of that if we really get it.
I also got the Christmas tree base set up and got the tree out of the shed. I drug the bag up to the back door but will probably have to bring it in the house in pieces.
I took a very long bath tonight, and read and thought. I’m in a contemplative mood lately and will be posting more about that here over the next few days and/or weeks. Things are shifting in my life, that’s for sure.
It has been a very quiet day for me. I went to Roy’s for lunch and they were swamped with people visiting for the holidays. I popped into the hardware store briefly and got home to meet with a gentleman about doing some work on my house. Other than those interactions, I have been alone with myself and my thoughts. I don’t think my phone has even rung today.
I did go get groceries after midnight. I didn’t want to wait until tomorrow, when everyone realizes we might get a dusting of snow and descends on the stores as if we will never get another shipment of food. I was out of yogurt and apples. That’s my signal to go to the grocery store. I bought a pomegranate tonight. For some reason they’re very decadent to me, maybe because we only get them for a brief time each year.
Well, I must get some rest. I have a very full day ahead tomorrow. I want to make more progress on Christmas decorating and finish my Christmas letter.
