Getting back to the little bites

Summer is upon us here in sunny Spain. It seems like we are skipping over a very short season of spring and the hot weather is here. Whether it is here to stay is uncertain, and there are still several degrees to climb before we hit true summer temperatures, but my body is having a hard time adjusting to the change. Yesterday I worked on the set painting (there are only a few of us volunteering to do the job so we need to be there every morning for at least an hour and then others come and work a few evenings a week) and then came home to get a few things done around the house before heading back to the school to pick up the kids. Once again I had visions of great accomplishments in the afternoon/evening but after lunch I hit a major nap attack and had to lie down. Bad idea! I never wake up refreshed from a nap. I was out from 4:30 till after 6 pm and in a fog for the rest of the night. Yuck! I did get measurements done for #2 son's costume but that was it. Oh, and I got dinner made and the dishes done. That is something.

I thought my craft outing at a friend's house was yesterday morning but it is today. I have 2 hours before it starts. Here is what I need to do before I leave in approx 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Shower and dress
Read Bible
Put bean soup on to start cooking
Eat some breakfast
Throw a load of laundry in the washer
If there is time left, clear breakfast dishes and straighten living room/dining room.

I won't be back till after 2:30 when I come home with the kids from school .... at least I think that is the plan. The house should be good and quiet for my hubby, who is home today on his day off, to get some work done on the computer. If there is time later today I may try and get my belated Tackle it Tuesday post written up and posted. If it doesn't get posted today I will probably schedule it to post automatically next Tuesday.

On the wish list once I find out what my afternoon and evening schedule look like is to sew the tunic for #2 son's costume. We'll see how the day goes.
