How to be busy all morning ............

............ and still not get anything meaningful, important or fun done.
Get up at 6:45 am to go bicycling in the garage. Read 20 pages of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" - okay, so the book was fun.
Take dog for his morning walk. Encounter nice young woman who pets him (he lives for that) and remarks that he looks just like an Ewok.
Take bath.
Start laundry while waiting for tea water to boil.
Wash dishes while waiting for tea to steep.
Eat breakfast - read more of enjoyable book.
Drink tea in front of computer while reading blogs and spending way too much time on facebook harvesting and replanting and trying to figure out who else to invite to be friend on farmville because, in order to expand farm and waste yet more time, need 8 neighbors and only have 5.
Collect mail, check received zippers against ordered zippers and notice discrepancy. Decide to wait until back order comes - too confusing to deal with now.
Try to sort papers and invoices on desk and kitchen table.
Pick out fabric, ribbon and zippers for more bags for etsy.
Give dog bi-weekly bath (he has a skin condition which requires washing with special shampoo which needs to soak in for 10 minutes) and dry him completely. A good (or not so good) 30 minutes gone. While dog is soaking, water potted plants and discover that son's picture is ruined (must have watered frame at one time). Try to remember to later find disc with pictures and print new one.
Try to decide whether to change into dry clothes or just air dry.
Collapse in front of computer and write (sorta unnecessary) blog post.
And that, just about, was my morning and I feel mildly exhausted and as if I haven't accomplished anything.

Oh, I didn't get up up until after 2pm, so you were much busier than I was!

It all sounded good to me -- well, except for the picture!
You could have been me, dealing with bills for providers that were almost a year old -- promising that they would get paid, or having the discussion of why I told you to something and you choose not to follow instructions..... boy howdy!

Sounds like you accomplished more than I did. Had coffee at six am with my GS this morning. Waaaay too early to be up anymore. LOL.

Sounds quite productive to me! I think a lot of what we do around our homes is so routine that you don't feel like ou have accomplished anything.
