Good Lord, this is a lot of books and parcels and envelopes and boxes.
In addition to tomorrow and the weekend, it looks like I will still be shipping on Monday. I’m sore, but in a reasonable sort of way. I don’t think I could pick up one of the cartons again tonight if I had to (I moved and stacked 80 of them, at 42 pounds each, which is kind of badass if you think about it) but happily I guess I don’t have to. I’m just emptying the cartons out, a handful at a time, and then filling them up again (by the front door) with finished mail. But unnggh. Day 2 and I definitely feel it. I had a hot soak in a tub full of Epsom salts, and Bill said, “Magnesium sulfate in the water, it’s like Europa!” Cosmic.
My bedroom always looks so inviting from the back yard. So pink and warm .
I finished my day warm (it was almost 80F here today, glorious) and looking up into a sky sparkling with stars and planets…. Aldebaron and Betelgeuse looked particularly bright and orange next to Jupiter, glittering white. I wandered around the yard, taking pictures of the solar lights, trying not to think about our weather forecast, which has cold rain coming in for the weekend.
It almost doesn’t matter anymore, though, because it’s freaking March. Summer is inescapably around the corner. Today I saw a baby Desert Spiny lizard, and it did that cartoon thing when I surprised it, it sprang vertically into the air, went about a half inch up, and put all four feet out in the air. Sproing! And then it ran under a woodpile. But I saw it, and it was adorable.
