I was asleep by 1:30/2:00 am and waking up at 9:30 am. I felt human again! And then, just when I was startingContinue reading “My Man Jeeves by P.G.

A Restful Saturday

Today’s Main Goal

Today’s main goal is to fold and put away sheets and coverlets …or atleast fold them. It’s another beautiful day and it’s very difficult for me to be inside on a nice day.
