Relativity

Used to be, that a lazy summer afternoon would last forever. I remember hanging from our old metal swingset in our backyard, the kind no one seems to have anymore, and looking for pictures in the clouds. That day lasted eons. Now, I wake up in the morning and two minutes later, it's nighttime, I've accomplished nothing, and it's three years later than I thought it was. Einstein was right: time is relative. Expanding on his theory, it is also in short supply now that it is summer. Doesn't make sense, does it? The days are longer, yet the time seems shorter.

Today, among other things, I installed box fans in the horse stalls, filled a trailer with horse manure for a neighbor, composted even more manure, took Wm to the park for a meeting with his pen pal group, went to the library and recycle center, stopped by the thrift store to dumpster dive for an adapter for a toy Wm bought yesterday (and found it, only to discover it's not the right one), cleaned the chicken coop, and made dinner. That's not all, but you catch the drift. My blog, like flowers that need water, droops.

One of your dear daughters shared that you also had the opportunity to scrape "chicken coop debris" off your shoe after dinner. We wondered if that would be a blog topic? :)
