Research, Reading & Riley
G has finished taking his medicine and has now started taking "my" medicine. And is doing much better on the magical big orange pills that I take for pain. Non-narcotic.
I am doing research on a Windowsill Gardening class. It covers so many topics. Herb gardens, seed starting, container gardening, houseplants, even vegetables grown on sunny windowsills. Too much stuff to cover. It gets confusing for the people who come to the class. But if I talk about herbs, I also have to talk about starting them from seed. No way around it. And the windowsill may be all some of the older members of the class have in which to enjoy live plants. We don't all have yards or patios or decks. And if we do, sometimes they aren't in the sunshine.
It is also time to send in my first (6 weeks) work diary for unemployment and fill out and sign my "Truth and Nothing But the Truth" statement. Or go to prison.
I am having my cereal now, a second cup of coffee and then I will read for an hour. I should have a clearer idea of how I want to spend the remainder of the day after that. Cabin Fever has set in and I am ready to be done with cold and ice. Other than the dog walks, I haven't even been to the grocery store this week. Just Wally World yesterday and that's more of a punishment than a real "go somewhere". I think it is past time to start working on stuff I had on my Winter List. And there's always the IRS.
