Yesterday and This Morning

Yesterday, trying to catch up with washing.
Bed stripped, love fresh sheets and ironed pillow cases.
Deep cleaned bathroom and straightened shelves.
Soon need to start on kitchen, so much neglected over last weeks.
When I go to bed the sun is brightly shining
a darkening shade now hanging.  Ends left for view at each end
and just hung on top of molding.  Why did I not do this years ago ?
This morning home from the market, everything put up and trying to keep a full pantry and freezer.  Easy lunch. 2 slices of crispy bacon, poached egg, chopped tomato,
melted cheese - all stacked with my chopped Basil and Dill on top.   So good and easy....

This morning a long list, wanted to continue to several othetr places  and had to come home after purchasing groceries.   Severe cramps in fingers and toes.  Also last few nights and wonder if the Cortisone shot is responsible as not low on
any mineral - oh my - what next....

I often think I am missing the housekeeping gene. Seriously. I get distracted so easily, you know?

However my washing machine was fixed and I went on a frenzy of washing the bedlinens after my friends left.

Your lunch looks delish. Other people's always do to me but yours especially.

WWW, I have always loved to do housework, washing and organizing. For weeks, everything tidy but need to straighten, drawers, closets, pantry and much more.
Now the problem is - wanting to do so much and cannot keep pace with the past :)

My desire for housecleaning is fading :) There are so many other things I'd rather do. Now I do like to keep things picked up and put in their places, but deep cleaning hurts my old body. Your lunches always look delicious! Take care....

Your lunch looks so fresh and delicious. You have inspired my dinner tomorrow. It is frustrating not to be able to do all that we would like in our homes or gardens because pain issues get in the way. My knees are always done for the day way before the rest of my body and mind are.

You ARE amazing!! When I had the Cortisone shots for my back, I had severe cramps and pains in my lower legs--calf. They felt heavy and hurt like crazy. When I asked the pain specialist if it could be caused by the steroid, he said, "No." when I asked my primary care doc, he said, "Probably." Who too believe, eh?

Susie, truly understand your comment. Seems lately that body can no longer keep up with mind. Mind continually making lists for the day and I just cannot follow through "wish the mind would shut up."
Judy, I do believe this is the problem, I may never go to a doctor or take medication - SOON...
