Where did the day go?

I had every intention of getting a bunch of stuff done today.....but didn't. I don't know how it happened, but the day just got away from me somehow. This seems to happen more times than I'd like to admit.

I couldn't tell you what I accomplished this morning besides eating breakfast, putting a new block of suet out for the birdies & taking down the Valentine's Day flag that was flying from its' pole off the side of our deck (& bringing out the Cajun flag to hang out there until it's time for the St. Patrick's Day flag ~ however, the Cajun flag has yet to be hung). I finally showered around 1:30 or 2:00, walked Lucy (our dog) & picked up loads of little "poop bombs" in the side yard that needed attention. The Cajun (which is in my heritage) flag has the following meaning:
The gold castle on the red field represents the Spanish kingdom, who allowed and even assisted the Acadians in settling their
new homeland. The silver fleur-de-lis on the blue field represents their French heritage(which I find ironic, since the French threw us out from what I've been told). The gold star on the white background respresents the Virgin Mary, patron saint of the Acadians.

I did get over to my mom's house a few towns over (she's been away for a while) & brought in the huge white plastic "bucket" or "bin" or whatever the heck it is that the mailman left yesterday. It was totally brimming over with mail, which I sorted through for her (catalogs/magazines in 1 pile; first class & bills in another). I changed a couple of lightbulbs that had burned out.

I stopped at the grocery store for some Aunt Jemima sausage biscuits that I'd been craving & 1/2 a gallon of milk. Then I headed over to Michael's (the craft store) for some of those pretty little organza bags with the ribbon ties at the top, so that I can put together a bunch of lavender "sachets" to put around the house & treat people with. I have 1/2 a pound of lavender buds that just arrived the other day ~ do you realize just how much lavender that is? ZOINKS!

I headed home, put my stuff away, walked Lucy again.....& here I am again.....getting nothing accomplished, but writing this entry. I SHOULD be reading my book for my book club meeting which is a week from tomorrow, washing the towels, catching up on TiVo'd stuff, cleaning up around the house, hanging out that Cajun flag, making the puzzle card for this months' card swap.......yada yada yada......the list goes on & on!

John mentioned it was Sunday and I was all like...wha? WHA? What happened to Saturday? But then, I'm on drugs. I guess I slept through Saturday. LOL
