Today, I took the day off from work. That meant I got to sleep in, which was nice. It was followed by a leisurely morning, drinking a cup of coffee and going on-line, instead of rushing to get on the freeway.
Then, I spent most of the day shopping with my daughter. She needed a few last items for her new apartment and some clothes and new shoes. One of the benefits of being at the shopping mall during the afternoon is the air conditioning. My house is not air conditioned, so it can get quite hot during the day in the summer.
Later in the evening, after it had cooled down a bit, I tidied the house a bit and did some cleaning. Keeping the house tidy is an uphill battle for me. I like neat and organized, but I am not always good about putting things away and keeping surfaces clear. Horizontal surfaces tend to end up piled high with things - books, magazines, yesterday's mail, the latest crafts projects, etc. I am a very casual housekeeper, at best, with a high level of tolerance for untidiness.
But it has been a good day and I am now looking forward to a fun weekend. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
