I Had a Plan

I had a plan, a real viable plan. But it was not to be.
I suppose I should start at the very beginning (a very good place to start).  Today was going to be a strange day. My mom had her second cataract surgery, so I was up at five to escort her. That  was not a big deal. It was only an hour earlier than my normal alarm.  Of course, with my mom unable to pick Harry from school and Alissa  in client meetings, it fell to me to pick him I up.  This resulted in a t two  hour work  day,  but that too was part of the plan.
So, how was I going to use my extra hour? I was going to process my new produce box which I had placed on the balcony.  After that, I was going to stick a chicken in the oven and have a nice chicken dinner on the table for Alissa when she got home at six, probably with fresh veggies from said produce box.
Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it  almost t too good to be true?
Yeah, I know.
After a brief respite, I went out to the balcony to get the produce box. Harry followed, and as I was revisited by the feeling I had the time I locked myself out of my dorm room on the way to the shower…wearing only a towel.  The door closed. The lock clicked. We were locked   out for two hours until Alissa got home.
So how do you spend two hours in a balcony with a kindergartner?
Well, we harvested potatoes, discussed the taxonomy of arthropods, found the starts of several pea pods on the remains of the vine, and played with a spider.
I can’t say it’s what I had planned,but it was nice.  I’m just glad the weather was nice.

    Maybe you should hide a spare key somewhere? Just a thought
