My Half Day Off

took half a day “off” today…
Everyone else went to a neighbor’s branding, and a full horsetrailer left me out…
I didn’t complain.
I attempted to sleep in.
After they woke me up at 5:30 am.
After the dogs barked.
After the doors slammed.
After someone forgot something, and came back in, and slammed the door again.
After the dogs barked again.
If I lived in town, I would have gone garage sale-ing.  A fun, mindless, cheap, entertainment with the chance of finding treasure.  The closest town is 45 miles away.  They had 5 garage sales listed in the paper.  I couldn’t bring myself to do it.
I took a long shower.
I dressed up.
I sat down.
I sighed.
I changed clothes.
I decided to go work in my garden.
I called a friend on the outside chance we could go have coffee.
She said “Yes.”
YAY!
I changed clothes.
Enjoyed myself immensely for a couple of hours…
Returned home.
Changed clothes.
Mowed my lawn.
For hours.
It’s a big lawn.
The grass was going to seed and TALL.
Too much rain lately.
Finished.
Put my lawnmower away.
It began to sprinkle.
Rain again.
NO COOKING ALL DAY LONG.
HOW COOL IS THAT????
I LOVE DAYS OFF!
