Just Puttering Around

I woke up to a sunny morning today and decided it was a great idea to just putter around.

 

put – ter

verb (North American)

to occupy oneself in a pleasant manner, doing a number of small tasks, or not concentrating on anything in particular.

 

The first thing I did today was pour myself a cup of tea. I am on my third “cuppa” as I write this.

 

A nice cup of tea, in the mug my friend, author Jo Hiestand sent me.

Then I read today’s Ottawa Citizen newspaper.

  • Ontario is having an election on June 12.¬† Six weeks of campaigning! Speeches and debates and mud-slinging!
  • 90 couples renewed their wedding vows at church yesterday.
  • University of Ottawa has pioneered a new treatment for heart valves.
  • The Toronto Raptors lost game 7 in basketball.
  • The Ukraine (a mess).

It was time for breakfast. A second cup of tea with scrambled eggs and shredded zucchini.

 

Delicious!

While eating I got the daily crossword puzzle completed.

 

An easy one. They get more difficult as the week goes on.

I worked on a jigsaw puzzle as well.

Finished my latest painting.

 

I am trying to do at least one painting a month. This one is April's.

And played Words with Friends with my daughter.

 

She usually wins!

It’s only 11 a.m.!!! Did I mention that I was awake at 5:45 this morning?

What do you do when you “just putter around”?

Well, I have to meet my daughter for lunch and I also have to think of how I am going to occupy myself for the rest of the day.

Have a fabulous day! – Maureen
