I'm still recovering my stamina, and that's showing itself in some major ways. When we got home from work a couple of nights ago, I realized that I needed to take down our sail shade. It's helped so much with our energy bills! But I was tired and decided I'd do it the next day. At four the next morning, my Charles and I woke up to a downpour. Oops. I wish I had gotten a picture of the sail full of water. It looked like a thin, deep canvas U, pregnant with rain, resting on the deck rail. The weight almost pulled one of the poles from the ground.
We're not going to be doing much work on the house this week. It's another take it easy week for me, and now my Charles has come down with a cold. So instead of an update from us, I thought I'd recommend a few really terrific blogs to read instead. I call these my "everyday blogs," sites I systematically check to keep my happiness level up:
The Reluctant Floridian (though now she's in SoCal)
My Favorite and My Best
The Brick House
Dear Future Hubby
The Bowie Bride
I love you much
The Broke-Ass Bride
Hyperbole and a Half
Okay, this is only a partial list, some of my absolute favorites. Obviously, I have a bit of a blog reading problem. No wonder I haven't been devouring as many books recently. Anyway, I love them. I hope you do too. Have a lovely week.
