I got to thinking this morning how it always rains when you take a couple of days off from work …… Why is that?????
I somehow think the clouds and weather have a direct connection to the management department and plan together that, if I have off it should rain, so that they don’t feel so bad because they have to work…… An interesting theory ……. Don’t you think?
Well, I got this wiz bang idea to clean a room and hoe out the junk and I managed!!! Believe me it wasn’t easy, but now all the junk is in the hallway, but I must say the other room looks good!! And because it is raining outside, I can’t put the stuff outside either for awhile; while I sort the other stuff out!!! Bad luck somehow..
I really wasn’t planning on sorting stuff out; I wanted to be outside enjoying the summer weather and showing off my summer wardrobe, but “NO” it has to rain!!
Back to puttering around, sitting here thinking about it my grandmother was always “puttering around” the house, and when I asked her “What are you doing?” She would answer “puttering around”. Though I never understood it really… It was like she moved things around the house or straightened things up on the coffee table. I know the word “puttering around” is a bit dated, but I like the word, because you can do 20 things at once with no worries because you are “puttering around”…
So I’ll stick to the word “puttering around”, and since I started writing this; I’ve stopped to unload the washing machine, talked on the phone to a friend come back to write a bit more here, stopped again for a cup of coffee, looked at the newspaper. Wrote a bit more here, looked at the stuff in the hallway and I’ll “putter around” some more too.
To be honest “puttering around” on a rainy day isn’t that bad at all, as long as you have something to “putter around”…..
The thought is: When someone asks you “What did you do at home all day?” Your answer: “I was puttering around.”
And the person that asked that question won’t have the slightest idea of what you are talking about….
Enjoy “Puttering Around”!!!
