It's a rainy Sunday and the whole world seems sleepy, which goes well with my mood because I'm feeling tired and burnt out. It's good for the yard, too, which is green and lush and in dire need of cutting. Our dandelion crop is doing extremely well--hundreds of sunny yellow dots wink at me from the green of the grass. When we went out for lunch today (to a good greasy spoon--they're great for brunch), I saw that just about everyone's yards were full of dandelions. Our neighbor, Bob, says not to bother trying to get rid of them, which is a relief. We may have inherited a dandelion-infested yard, but at least we don't have to worry about pressure from the neighbors to fix it. Sure, their greenery isn't as nice as just grass, but the flowers are pretty, so I don't really mind them. (There's plenty of grass and it's beautiful--it's just a bit weedy is all.) Actually, I'm really enjoying the dandelions right now.
I did the usual geeking around today and re-read Linda Barnes' Snapshot--a Carlotta Carlyle mystery. (A six-foot-one redheaded female private investigator who subscribes to things and lists her phone number under her cat's name so that her cat gets all the junk mail. Drives a cab to make extra money. Gotta love Carlotta.)
My mind is still on the web. I have all these "need to do" things swarming around in my mind. Stuff for my parents, stuff for myself, lots of different fun things and chore things. I can't seem to get my mind to just chill out and leave this stuff alone, I guess I'm just too wound up right now. So I guess I'd better either just go to bed or get back to the computer since my mind won't leave it. Maybe it's just that I'm feeling so burnt out and don't feel like doing any of this stuff and so I'm feeling guilty and my mind is making lists of "must-do's". I dunno.
