I feel good.. da da da da dum..

I knew that I would, yeah...
(close your eyes and imagine James Brown singing and dancing his little heart out.
And if you're too young to remember James Brown... Well, ummm, I don't know what to tell you.)

Other than I FEEL GOOD!

I tried to upload a youtube video of James singing "I Feel Good", but blogger wouldn't cooperate with me this morning...

So this will have to do ya...

That's how good I feel!

It took me until yesterday to start to feel half-way human, but once the "relax" part of relaxation kicked in... Whoa, doodleys!

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday were pretty droopy ol' days, with me not having enough energy or desire to do much of anything, other than to sit around contemplating my navel and reading books.
But I woke up yesterday morning, rarin' to go... and full of piss and vinegar!
That is... if being full of piss and vinegar is a good thing.
But I suspect it is...

I FEEL GOOD! da da da da da da dum!

I woke up yesterday morning at 6:15 (which is late for me - as you probably know) and I vacuumed the entire house, did the dishes, (okay, so I'm a slack woman and didn't do them the night before... but they were rinsed and stacked), I also moved all of the stuff out of the dining area (table and chairs, kids table and chairs and high chairs ) and I scrubbed the floor on my hands and knees until it sparkled... then I dusted the living room and all the door frames in the house, did 2 loads of laundry and hung it out to dry, and then I had a lovely long shower... all before 8 o'clock!

So what did I do afterwards?

I did nothing.

Oh, some friends stopped by for a while, and we visited for a bit and we drank gallons of coffee. But once they left, I put in about 4 hours in the garden pulling weeds, then took another shower and curled right up with a good book. Simply because I could!

Ahhhh... I could get used to this!

Now feel free to start dancing around the house. Because I know that you're singing it.

So go -->here <-- to watch James... shaking his groove thang to "I Got You"...
And dig that crazy sweater man !

It's amazing what some time off can do for a woman's soul, eh?

Sexy pic of Mr Brown BTW (erm, no, just kidding)

You scrubbed floors on your hands and knees? Are you daft woman? Go grab some Crisco and make a pie or something...but scrubbing the floor on your hands and knees. that doesn't sound like relaxation to me.

Hi Taters

That sounds like a perfect day to me. I love doing a bit of housework in the morning and I long for a full day home where I don't have to put on the makeup and good clothes and head to work.

Yes, my tomato seedlings are booming along - thought you'd be planting 'taters not 'maters!

Cheers - Joolz

Word Variation: Prick Lol!

Ha!!!.... "I Feel Good".... {short story: Upon my husband and I saying our "I Do's", that is the song that we turned towards the crowd and walked away/back down the aisle to. No one knew that we had chosen it. Our wedding was not completely 'normal'- as my dog (at the time) was in the it as our ring bearer and we Limbo'd during part of the reception}.
SO good to hear you 'gettin' a groove on'...I love productive, yet relaxing, days like that. You sound like my kind of gal.
Am glad you are getting a 'recharge'. Good for you-YOU deserve it!

Sounds like you are enjoying a well deserved break :)

A little down time does wonders for the heart and soul, doesn't it?

Yeah, I'm old enough to remember old James. *sigh* My second son didn't even know Ike & Tina Turner were black!!!!! GAWD!!!! How old am I???

The Wife said...

holy crap, when you get energy, you get energy! Glad your out of the doldrums. I'm told I'm full of piss and vinegar at times. I think it's a good thing!

farmlady said...

The next time you go "incommunicado" I would like you to do it HERE. I need my floors scrubbed and a few other things that require excess energy.
You go girl!! Sometimes you just have to take things into your own hands and disconnect from the world for a while.
J. Brown would be proud of you.

Nancy M. said...

Wow, all that in just a couple hours! You rock!!! You deserved to do nothing else after doing all that! I'm so happy your feel good!
