“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."
- Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet


Seeing Stars

Tuesday, July 19, 2005

I was outside in the heat pulling giant weeds again. Now I'm seeing stars. Yup, that's right. Every time I close my eyes something like this waits behind them.

It's vaguely star-shaped, right?

So now I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that the weeds are all gone now. Well, most of them anyway. It took a few days work but they are gone. Woo hoo!! The house is basically ready to sell. I'll mow tomorrow and clean up around the house a bit, and the appraiser is coming on Thursday, but then it's ready.

The bad news is that I've got nothing. Blogwise and brain-power-wise that is. Sorry folks, the weeding took it all out of me - in buckets of sweat. Perhaps tomorrow I will be able to sit down for a bit and finish a promising post which I started a while ago, but for now, my poor old bones - and brain - need some rest.

Your old bones, huh? is that your 34 year old bones or your 38 year old bones? tee hee.

Congratulations on getting it all done! Now that yours are done, I have some weed boxes, um, I mean, planter boxes that need weeding. Are you availble on Friday? HAHA

Actually, if the mantis is working, I may want to borrow it soon...

I'm gonna say the 38 year old bones. I'm just not ready to admit that my 34 year old bones are tired yet.

It happens. We all lose our blog-power at times:-)

Okay, my 33 year old bones feel about 80 some days. And, supposedly they're only supposed to be 25. Hmmmm...
