I am sooooooooooo tired today, not sure why. I think it might be the heat and humidity, somehow this is not my favorite kind of weather. On the other hand, I guess it beats snow storms, but not by much. At least I don't have to shovel... Although, I did spend quite some time weeding today, and you barely can see a difference. Almost the same effect as shoveling during a snow storm :-)

I woke up at 6:30am this morning, and contemplated getting up and walking. I would like to get back into the habit of getting up early, and getting a walk in before any of the kids wakes up, just taking Sylvia in the sling. I used to do that (well, sans Sylvia), but got out of the habit during my pregnancy. I would still walk, but mostly after the kids were awake, or even at night. But this morning, I found that I still was way too tired to get up that early, but hey, at least I was awake! Now I just need to work on the getting up part :-)

Didn't do much today, but I did get a nice dinner cooked somehow. That was about my only indoors accomplishment though, Sylvia wanted me to walk her around and pay attention to her, not do stupid housework. I agree with her on the housework, I just wish that my house would somehow self clean while I paid attention to her :-)

The picture today shows the same flower as yesterday, about a week later. It took me quite a while to figure out what kind of flower it was, it looked so different before it really started blooming. A friend finally recognized it as a purple cone flower, or echinacea. I had been trying to look it up in my books when it was still green and spiky looking, and hadn't been able to find it. Glad she solved the mystery!
