Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Today I will....

1. Mow the lawn and rake the yard. - DONE!

2. Put away all the clothes and shoes strewn about the house, and get at least 4 loads of laundry done. - DONE!

3. Unpack from last weekend. - DONE!

4. Get a handle on all the bits of paper and mail that seem to have taken over my kitchen island, the bar cart, my desk, my dresser, and even a small pile on my coffee table. Receipts, bills, invitations, tickets to events, postcards, coupons, letters, junk mail, dry cleaning tickets, etc... It's no wonder that when I went to leave the house last night to go to a neighborhood dinner party, that I grabbed the wrong set of keys off the kitchen island and locked myself out of my own house for the evening. I had to rely on my neighbors for a spare set at 11:15 when I came home. - Not so much

5. Clean the litterboxes and the laundry room. - Out of cat litter - they can wait till I run errands after work tomorrow. I did run the vacuum in the laundry.

6. Put out the trash and recycling. - DONE!

7. Make a healthy dinner. - So, you see, last night, I had an over the top decadent meal at a dinner part in my neighborhood. Yummy, but rich, so I was pretty much going for miso soup and crackers today to make up for it. But my neighbor across the way saw me working in the yard, and asked if I wanted to come over and grill steaks and have a glass of wine at 6:00. There's always tomorrow.

8. Deal with the bills so I know how much I have to live on for the next couple of weeks and avoid using the credit card for anything. (I made an impulse buy at the Festival on the Hill yesterday of a stunning fur trimmed pashmina shawl in red and gold paisely from Kashmir. My credit card is grounded until next month.) - Ummm, didn't make a whole lot of progress here.....

It's 11:00 AM - let's start with a shower and more coffee, shall we?

Well, at 4:30, with an hour and a half to go before I head next door for dinner, I still managed to straighten up a lot, update my computer, and at least make piles out of all the paper. Not too bad, and I got to sleep in and relax this morning.
