Saturday Stuff

Ah, New England ... yesterday it was rainy and never made it above 60 degrees. Today the sun broke through the fog mid-morning and the temperatures climbed into the 90's. All of the doomsayers forecasters on the local weather channels say that this is the first heat wave of 2008 with temperatures expected to get even hotter than today through until Tuesday or Wednesday. Can I get an ugh?!? It's times like this when I wonder why it was I moved back to Connecticut in the first place ... oh yeah, my family is from here, I knew there was a good reason!

What I really should be doing right now is finding some cardboard boxes and getting stuff together for a yard sale that we'll be having at my Mom's in two weeks but to be perfectly honest, I have no desire to do much of anything except maybe kick back with that book I've been trying to read for weeks now and try to get through a page or two before I nod off as I'm sure to do! Come to think of it, though, I can't really do that either as it's after 7:00 at night and taking a nap now would be counter-productive to being able to go to bed in a few hours and get up to go to work in the morning.

So what's a vibrant and intelligent single woman like myself to do on a Saturday evening without a kid in the house because she's staying at a friend's? I know! I can play Bejeweled on the XBox!

Sigh ...

    Have a good weekend. It's been in the nineties here. Perfect for swimming! :)

  2. It's Sunday lunchtime here and the sun is shining, it's hot and I'm sitting in the garden blogging listening to Duffy - Aint life grand! :)

  3. The forecasters only seem happy when they tell us it's raining.

  4. It's too darn hot here in Ct. I'll never put any annuals in my garden. It's a good thing I have some perennials. ;-)
    They lend some color to the place.

    I don't like this heat wave. It's only June 8!

  5. You think it's hot in New England? I do sympathize, really, but in the south right now.
    On my deck the boards are hot hot hot to walk on.

    Don't ask about the roses....

  6. OH goodie you have saturday nights just like me. We need to find a game we can play virtual like on the internet together. Oh heck I don't know. I will be over next Saturday to watch a movie and eat popcorn. LOL, don't I wish!!!

  7. This game is so addicting (although I don't play in on a XBox).

    I so much look forward to the rare quiet time I get when both my kids are out or away for the evening, and then what do I do? Squander it by watching TV or playing some game on the computer or engaging in some similar nonsense. Then the kids come home and I wonder why I never seem to get anything done.
