This was Someday Saturday Today with Pine Needles
I really hate "someday," because usually, someday is just no-day. That usually ends up being my answer when I don't want to do something, or can just put it off to some unknown time in the future that may or may not ever come. This is why people create bucket lists, so some day doesn't turn into never-day. Well today, and just about every Saturday for the last 4-5 weeks, has been someday Saturday. Sometimes around 2008 Deborah and I decided we were finally going to clean out the attic, the garage, and do some of the things around the house we have been wanting to do for years. That was back in 2008.
A few weeks ago we finally got tired of putting it off, and started working on all of the above, a little at a time, each Saturday morning. We have a very small one car garage, (which the car has been been in before) and today ended up being peg-board and organization day as you can see Deborah doing below, then pine-mulch in the garden. The pine straw required picking up 15 bales of pine needles at the local feed store, which was weird since we basically live amongst a pine forest, and spreading them out in the 90 degree high humidity heat of Alabama.
I know these aren't life changing events here, but they aren't unimportant either. I think I read somewhere recently that there really are only a few days in everyone's life that are super important, the rest is life, just living life. That's what this post is about... this is just what we have been doing on Saturday mornings around here. Life isn't always about the super high and super low points, but the events this week in Aurora Colorado just reminded me how precious life is, and how quickly it can change.
