Summer Days

Have you ever just given in to that sudden urge to do nothing? Try as I might nothing is winning. Now it is not that I do not have things to do. The floors need to swept and mopped, the windows need to washed as does the siding, the dishes need done, the laundry needs to folded and put away, dogs need to be walked and so it goes. Today I want none of being responsible & mature. Today I want to write like e.e.cummings, color as I did in first grade, marvel at nothing and stand in awe of everything. Isn't that summer days. Responsible may win out in the end but right now summer is on my mind.

I Really Shouldn't

This is going to be a very short post. Why? Because it is already late and I really need to get some sleep before my MD gets worst. That's why, but here I sit. No I am not watching television, nor am I reading an engrossing book. Then why don't I go to bed, you may ask. Well I have an addiction. It sometimes becomes my master until I can no longer hold my head up and have to admit my shame. I am addicted to recipes. You can laugh now but give me a computer and late night and I can find some of the most delicious recipes that ever appeared in cyberspace. Lemon tart, chicken dim sum,pepper poppers with bacon. I could go on but I really must snatch back what little self control I have remaining and go to bed. So off to the Land of Nod I go and bid a reluctant adieu to all those wonderfully tempting recipes that I know await me.

Sublime to Ridiculous

My life has gone along a fairly normal course up until now. I have been taken over by a file on my computer. Sure I know what you are thinking that happens to every one on occasion.Usually you go into that file and clean out all out dated information and the world is back in balance once more. Today I realized that I have a burgeoning file where there is no hope. I have come up against the proverbial 'rock and a hard spot'. I want to taste every recipe in that file. I don't want to delete any of the tasty sounding culinary delights. So what is the problem you say. Cook your way through the list and once again my life will be in balance. I can't! If I did 1) I would have more food that I, myself could eat in a year 2) I just want a taste, 3) I am in a lifestyle of very low sodium and no refined sugar and these recipes do not fit those criteria. A problem of gigantic proportions. Oh! What should I do, to eat or not to eat that is the question. After pondering for what seem like many hours, in actuality is was several nano seconds I have decided to do----- nothing. Of course I will add another tasty sounding recipe soon, oh well. Maybe I will just will it to my grandchildren and let it become the burden of another generation. 8^)

Have I mentioned?

Have I mentioned how much I dislike being sick? One of the things that I miss when I am sick are the sunrises. I love to watch the sun slowly creep it's way up in the eastern sky. I sit in the porch swing waiting,confident in the fact that tomorrow it will rise again with new variations of tones and hues. It is a great way to start the day.

Cloudy Days

Today is one of those days where it is hard to get up in the morning. I heard the wind raking through the wind chimes on the porch. Hard wind means generally one thing, thunderstorms are on there way. Let the Dynamic Duo out before the rains hit. The rains came hard and all at once followed very closely by the roll of thunder. This will go on until noon-ish it is a great excuse to knit and that is what I will do, while listening to the rain and waiting for the next flash of light. I love rainy days in the Ozarks.

I have been pathetic about blogging. Trying to turn over new leaf. We will see how it goes. Today I would like to introduce the "Dynamic Duo". They came here when they were only 8 weeks old. Someone deserted them (hopefully it will never happen again to me) and I never found homes for them. So here I go. I will try and at least post once a day. (Promises, promises)

Forever Awake

Have you ever felt like you can just keep going even though you know it is almost time for bed. Your body has started to wind down but the mind is just not ready to relax. If you have then you know of what I speak, if not I'm sorry. It is a wonderful feeling to think you can just go on and on. Finishing one project after another never looking at the clock or worrying about time. Just flying through work. Deadlines falling by the wayside with abandonment.

I have been there just not right now. It is only 9:15PM and I want to go crawl in bed and sleep for 36 hours. Deadlines loom like ogres out of Grimm's fairy tales. The troll is standing on the bridge demanding the work be done and all I can think of is a warm, cozy bed.

The troll is going to have to wait, as are the ogres. For me it is off to the "Land of Nod" to ride in that wooden shoe. To all a good night.
