Unsustainable Tuesday: A Sustainable Tuesday Post

But a quick check in with the great Merriam-Webster shows this

I have to admit something. Posting on Tuesdays isn’t really sustainable for me.
I start most Tuesday, with breakfast, and as soon as that is done, I must clean up from breakfast. No sooner have I finished washing the dishes, than my email and the blogs I follow are calling me.
While I wait for everything to load, I sneak in my Bible reading. And suddenly it’s at least 9:30. It does depend on the day, but it’s generally time to go hurry and get ready to go help the food pantry.
There is an hour drive, then it’s time for an early lunch. After lunch I usually can get some reading done. But once I start working it’s pretty steady until 4:00. Even if we don’t help with cleanup it’s still an hour back to the library where I write most of my posts.
So by the time we get here, it’s late, I’m tired and I’m supposed to come up with something? Ha!
But in other interesting news. I recently decided to make a dress based off The Coronation by Olivia Jarmusch. Click here if you would like to help fund the project. Or feel free to check it out here.
