The weather is the weather. You have to deal with whatever is out there. Matt Cassel
Yesterday it rained all day. Not a nasty kind of rain, a nice rain. It was cool, but with no wind, just lots of low grey clouds and rain. It was a good day for looking out the window and daydreaming. I didn’t complain about the weather. Really, what good would that do other than to make me cranky?
And for some unknown reason it made me want to get something off my to-do list. So, that’s what I did. I went through piles of papers that needed to be sorted. Some papers were trash and to the trash they went. But there were a lot of papers that need to be kept and they got filed. I really don’t know why most of them must be kept, but I have been told to keep them and so I do. Anyway, that meant the files needed to be sorted through. And I did it! The “clean up papers and files” on the to-do list is done and scratched off. You know that feels good!
But back to the weather. Weather is what it is. No point in complaining about it. Last summer I complained everyday about the heat and humidity. Did it change anything? No. Well, it did change my usual easy going happy self into someone I didn’t like. Most of the summer was miserable, not because of the weather but because of my attitude. So, I have decided that like my files, my attitude will be clean and neat, with the worthless thrown out and the needed stuff kept. I may need a reminder of this in July and August.
If I write negatively, someone should send a comment reminding me of what I have written today.
The sun is shining and it is not windy and freezing.
The guys installing the new balconies are back to work.
If it is too cold the epoxy used with the screws is ineffective.
Definitely, want the railings to be secure.
If it’s too windy they can’t work because it isn’t safe for the installers.
Certainly, want them to be safe and secure.
The cats are not happy about the noise.
He just wants it done.
It’s hard to nap with all the noise.
Not exactly happy but putting up with it.
So, today I am celebrating
the good weather and working conditions,
the guys working and doing a good job,
and my sweet catkids.
Not much to chatter about today.
It is still cold but it was beautiful when I went for a walk.
It felt good to be out in the sunshine and wind.
I was dressed for the weather with coat and hat.
You know if you insulate the attic the house stays warmer
and so it is when you wear a hat.
When I came home I had a big mug of hot chocolate and
curled up in my afghan with a book.
A really good book by David Baldacci. Memory Man
I have yet to read a book by Baldacci that I didn’t like…a lot.
He writes the kind of book I find hard to put down.
As soon as I finish here I will get back to it.
Teddy and I won’t stay out on the balcony
except for a little while in the early morning.
Mama isn’t really a get up early people so it doesn’t happen often.
Anyway, it is much nicer inside where there is cool air.
I would like it to cool down, but Mama says it
is going to be like this for at least another week.
I think this is how I will be spending the week,
relaxing in the chair and dreaming about feathers.
Have. I told you how much I love feathers?
No, well, maybe another day I will.
