Outside My Window. . . the day has already started and here I sit with sleep still in my eyes and being lazy. A light breeze blows the plastic bag scraps that are snagged in my front tree. Weatherman is predicting temperatures in the 50s today, but with snow on the ground, it doubt whether it will be that warm.
I am thinking. . . about my childhood and the mornings that I walked to the county road and waited for the yellow school bus to come lumbering up the road. To pass time, I would break the ice on puddles along the side of the road. Other times, I would scamper (I could scamper in those days) up the ditch bank and scan the horizon for the bus. How carefree my life was, and I didn't even realize it.
I am thankful... for another Monday morning with no commitments. I woke early, rolled over and went back to sleep for another hour.
In the kitchen... the rug frame is leaning against the table with only two inches remaining to twine. I am amazed that I will have accomplished my goal for another month.
I am wearing... my pajamas and some fleece slippers. (I told you I was being lazy)
I am creating... the twined rug, of course, and another Oddball baby blanket.
I am planning... a May support group meeting in Cheyenne. It is difficult to plan and coordinate when I am not familiar with the local resources and meeting places. It is gradually coming together.
I am reading... Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson.
I am praying... for the homeless, especially the children who don't understand why their world has been turned upside down.
I am hearing... the ringing of a cell phone from my bedroom. Of course, that is impossible since my phone is in another room, so the sound's source must be the radio. It sounds realistic and definitely fooled me.
One of my favorite things... Scrabble and other board games. Nothing beats a good game with a friend or a group of friends. No batteries required.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . none at this time.
A quote worth sharing. . .
