Exhausted But Pleased

I have been honoured for the third time since I started this journal by a fellow blogger with the One Lovely Blog Award! This time Enz, from One Of The 4 Walls, passed this wonderful acknowledgment onto me. Thank you so much, Enz! Knowing that there are people out there who read about and appreciate the path that I am on really makes this worthwhile. I have my original list of blogs I am passing this award onto already posted, so feel free to take a peak and visit some of the great sites that I frequent.

I am absolutely exhausted and probably not completely coherent at this point. I'm really bad for keeping up with everything that needs to be done on a regular basis, so it was a day of nothing but chores. I detailed the car, mowed the lawn, watered the garden, swept the sidewalks, hosed the deck, did the dishes, scrubbed the counters, and generally tidied the house. I'm pretty sure I left some stuff out of this list too.

I was famished by the time I was done everything outside, so I came in to take a break and made a huge omelet. Well, I’ll call it an omelet, despite the fact that it didn’t actually stick together. It was really tasty and held me over until everything else was done.

I am only recording the mowing of the lawn as exercise because everything else was sporadic, and I didn't really break a sweat for very long at any of the other chores. I'm happy that I got so much done, but I am beat. I think I need to go and face plant on the bed now.

- 8 glasses of water throughout the day
- 1 cup of pineapple

- 10 garden cherry tomatoes
- 6 garden strawberries
- 3 egg omelet with honey ham, grated cheese, mushroom, tomato, onion, and pepper

- 1 hour spent mowing the lawn

    You totally deserve the award!

  5. Phew..I'm tired just reading it!

  6. Wow that is some list! Even if you didn't count the other chores you were still movin and shakin and burning calories so it is all good. Hope you get some rest

  7. Impressive list of chores! Congrats on the third lovely blog award!

  8. Thanks, all! I am still feeling a bit run down today from doing so much, so I'm trying to motivated myself to do some excercise at this point. Today was the complete opposite of yesterday's 'active fest' so far!
