Good morning – and Happy Hump Day! It’s Wednesday, which means I’m half way thru my business trip and almost ready to go back home.
Except for how I’m writing this on Tuesday afternoon. Lying on my bed in the hotel. Awaiting time to go back out to dinner.
WARNING: This is a bit long-ish, so….if you’re in a hurry, scroll right on by this next part until you see the card share for today! 🙂
Have you guys noticed that I’m a bit of a …. how do you say it??…..stick in the mud? Home-body? A morning person? If you haven’t, let me share that news with you now. I am NOT at my best in the evening (and that’s pretty much any time after about 6:30pm). Here’s a totally normal evening for us – and it’s a routine that I love with every fiber of my being. I’m sorry. I like our routine. I don’t care for it being disrupted. In some regards, I may well be 92 years old. God help whoever has to take care of my crotchety self if and when I ever really AM 92 years old. And tread lightly if you’re going to change anything in my day-to-day-routine! 😉
We eat dinner between 5 and 6. We usually watch a recorded show whilst we eat (yes yes, I know. Bad for the diet. Bad for….well, everything. Got it).
We feed the horses.
We come back inside.
We make sure we re-set the kitty feeder bowls.
We watch the World News Tonight with David Sawyer. Pre-recorded. We aren’t partial to commercials. We have a pretty solid idea how far behind we have to be in order to not ever catch up while we watch the show. It’s a matter of pride to never have to watch a commercial.
We watch one pre-recorded show.
I’m tired and I take a shower. Wayne takes a shower. We go to bed.
On a “late” night – this occurs at around 9.
Yea – we’re night-owls.
So here’s the point of this written perambulation.
When I’m away from home and staying in a hotel, my routine has been disrupted. Like – a lot. When I get back to the hotel in the evening, I’d better have already eaten or have take-out. Cause….I’m there. And thinking about bed.
Except tonight, I’m going out to dinner with some friends I don’t get to see except when I come here for meetings. But, it’s going to take everything I’ve got….. cause….yep. Stick in the mud.
And – it’s practically bedtime!
So, I’m going to keep myself in busy mode by doing my blog post for tomorrow morning now – cause when I get BACK from dinner, it really WILL be bedtime!
This is a simple and easy card to make. I found the technique in the new 2015 Holiday Catalog, and modified it to suit what I was after. It uses Lighthearted Leaves (1 Sept!) and For All Things – a wonderful classic in the Annual Catalog. Take a look-see:
