Procrastinating With Brand Identity Boots

 So today is another of those pinch-me-I'm-dreaming beautiful days here in the highlands.

Sun and clouds, that lovely bright, then filtered, then bright again light.
The view from the front deck. 

I have good intentions today.  I am going to be useful around the house. Wash some clothes. Maybe clean some stuff.  I was just getting my motivation to begin, but I feel the nagging pull of the promise of a beautiful day. Having not yet turned-on the little red vacuum, my wee Orpheus's lyre to the siren songs of the Scottish weather,  I'm just going to drop what I am doing and allow myself to be drawn-out of the house.....just for a minute...


...definitely only for a minute,.... I'll just nip out here for a wee minute, then I will get back to work......


But first I'm going to water the vegetables.....in fact, I should re-pot that zucchini plant.....

So that's finished, you know, now that I'm out here.... everything is blooming all around me,  maybe it's time to get the camera out again... maybe take some snaps...just, you know, for fun. Then I'll get the cleaning done. 

So I think I'll try to get some angular shoots...I wonder if I can make it arty... 

And I guess I had better water the other plants while I'm at it. Yep. Then I'll just hose-off the walkway....then....back to work.......hey,  I wonder if this old digital camera can still take a decent close-up.....


Yep, I guess so. 

Ooh, check out this purple one, it looks like it's trying to eat me...like in that movie The Ruins....actually it was a book first....I read it at the airport. It was entertaining enough......the movie was kind of lame though....

And I should probably spend some time poking the clematis vines through the trellis fence so that it can take hold.....yeah, I should definitely do that....then I'll go back inside....


Hey...wait a sec...my feet are wet! Aaack! Icy-cold hosepipe water vs. flip flops!.........I wonder if I should get a pair of Wellie boots? I am probably the only person in Scotland who doesn't have Wellies. Never really fancied them before....but maybe I'll just nip in and get the laptop and sit out here at the table for a wee minute and have a look.....its so nice out....just for a minute...then I'll get the vacuuming done.....


                               

No....WAY! Check out these Ralph Lauren wellie boots! Tartan wellies! Sweet! They even look like my logo! I may need these...can I get away with them? Wait...will my husband think I'm ridiculous?....but they're just like my logo! These are brand identity boots!!....wow... cool......okay, I'll just save it in my shopping basket for now....and maybe a quick check of the email......




Forty Five Minutes Later


Wow, is that the time? I really need to crack-on....but now that I am sitting out here, I can see through the front window that those tomato and pepper plants in the sun room are begging for bigger pots. Do I have any pots that size? Hmm...I had better just nip to to shop and get some...I mean, while they're open and all....then I'll make a start. Yep, once this is done, I'll feel like I have closure and I will be able to concentrate on the task at hand...I'll be back in a wee minute...

Great....that was easy. I hope three is enough.......yeah....probably...should I get four?...no...three.


                                           
45 minutes later

Very good. Home at last. Now I can get these potted..... I'll just get those tomatoes and peppers into the pots....then the vacuuming....


One hour later


Looks like the sun is setting...huh. That's weird. It seems so early...

Right. Okay. Ready now. Here I go. Vacuuming...yep.......gonna do it now.....right now.....riiiiiiiight......


Sigh.

  2. I'll see what I can do. It doesn't always listen to me...
    Thanks so much for reading! I've only been at it four months and it's encouraging to see that I am not talking to myself:)

  3. If I had a view out of my front deck like that I'd procrastinate, too. I love my gardens and the privacy I have made around my yard from them (every year it gets more secret-garden like) but I would die to live on the water again. Will you adopt me?
