Doing stuff

A day off.  A big yellow sun shining in the sky.  A cup of coffee on the deck.  All good things for me today.

That is how my first day off began.  I went downtown and stopped in to visit a few friends, got my 2nd coffee fix from Flow Lifestyle Boutique, then grabbed a great Hummus and Chicken Toastie sandwich from the Art of Eating Deli, and retired to the deck again.

I had a nice cold Bud Light (just in case I got dehydrated ya know) and my Kindle for an afternoon of reading and relaxing.  Hmmm, battery low on the Kindle.  Well, I had no choice but to fully recline on the zero gravity chair and have a nap.  A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!!

Later this afternoon, I thought I should do at least one chore so I replaced the door knob and lock on one of the doors.   Since our beloved handyman Clayton passed away a few months ago, I don't have someone to do all those little chores.   I'm actually quite handy, but if you can get someone else to do that stuff - why do it yourself?

I have tools and I know how to use them BUT I pick and choose the types of chores or fix-it tasks I will admit to being able to do.  Basically if I have to get dirty to do it - forget it. 

No crafting today.  It was just too nice outside.   I hope Day Off #2 is just as good as today.


  1. Sounds like a WONDERFUL day. Here's to day #2 being just as good! Cheers!

  2. Glad you had a good day! Hope tomorrow and the next day will be just as great.

  3. What a nice day! I hope you have lots of sunshine tomorrow too. It sounds wonderful.

    I hope day two is even better!!!
    Big hugs :)

  5. Sounds like you had a restful day off. Long weekends are the best. Now that school is out I have loads of time to relax. It is surprising how fast September comes around though.

  6. Well Miss Kim, I'm totally impressed that you replaced a door knob and lock. Way to go girl.My sister is mechanically inclined and so is one of my daughters, but me, I'm all thumbs when it comes to mechanics.

    I'm so envious of you to be sitting enjoying the sunshine with a nice cool beer. Life is so short that you should take life easier some times. I wish that I would take that advice.

    Have a great CANADA DAY WEEKEND. Hugs. JB

  7. Sounds like a great start to a nice long weekend....'cept for the door knob stuff. I so know what you mean about the "admission" thing....There are certain things that I absolutely will NEVER do (like, run a lawn mower or cook on the grill) because, if I do it once, it will become "my" job forever. Enjoy....hope the sun's still shining and the cold brewskies are flowing....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
