No Guff---the walk or the wedding---

Have you ever had a day where there is no time-----?
Yesterday was a day like that---- The Lawn care people came to De-Thatch (or whatever you call it)--- the grass-----tractors, rakes, a crew of people--all over the yard.

Luke, the wonderful "fix everything guy"-----came yesterday too, to put the docks out----then he had to add more fencing under the driveway gate as Tess , the German, (as in dog) found she could lay on her stomach and get out and chase people walking on our back road.

And supper time, the phone rang, and it was the electrician and wife. "Will you be at home if we come over now and show you how to start that generator?" I heard a voice say.
"We can come right now."
And what could I say?-----We have been waiting since our last power outage for these electrical people to appear---

By 8pm, when Himself put some sort of dinner in front of me, I couldn't eat.
I was too pooped to pop--- (My Mom used to say that)-
It was all I could do to walk over to the goulash bucket, and scrape my dinner into it.

"Perhaps we are trying to do too much in one day", I heard myself mumble to Himself'
"No Guff", he replied, with his feet up on a chair.

So to-day, I went for my walk---
and--it's an UBER DAY--- the day I have to drive Himself to the office.
No matter what.,..... I was determined to get the walk in--- the whole house here is a total mess--but---- I did it! ---- "I" do feel better---not as grouchy!
Doncha just find, when one doesn't take time for themselves, one becomes ornery?

And, no invitation has arrived yet to Megan Markle's wedding--
I shall walk to the mailbox later, as I'm sure she has invited all the Sparkly people!
And we will dress in our finest!
Lord love a Duck, now I hear the propane truck trying to get in the driveway---
This changing of the seasons really keeps one busy!
