To-do list still to do…

It’s time to
Tuesday Chatter with Eugenia
and I have this to say for myself.

I had a to-do list for today.
Here’s what I did .


  1. Read the paper and did the puzzles
  2. Went for a walk
  3. Had a bag of chips and a coke for lunch
  4. Played with the cats
  5. Started a crochet project
  6. Played some games on my Kindle
  7. Got on the computer, got side-tracked by an email and bought a phone
  8. Wrote and scheduled a blog post which led to wandering in computer land
  9. Ate supper
  10. Got back to the computer and once again wandered all over cyber-world
  11. Now I am here

There were other things I did but I can’t remember exactly what.

I still have today’s to-do list to do.
I think I will throw this list away and make one for tomorrow.
Oh, wait.
I work tomorrow and when I come home from work I won’t want to do anything.
No point in making a list for tomorrow.
I will make a list for Thursday.

August on my block…

August in this part of the country has been HOT!
It started out just hot and dry.
This is what I saw on one of my walks.
I don’t know the official name of this plant,
we just call it palmetto grass.
Somehow it manages to look cool in the heat.

August didn’t stay just hot and humid.
It got HOT and HUMID.
Then the rains came making it
HOT and HUMID and WET.
This is what I saw on a walk last week.


Yep, mushrooms on lawns and under shrubs.
The weather peeps say it is going to cool down to the 90’s this week,
still humid but no rain expected until the weekend.
I am so ready for some cooler drier weather.
I mean COOL as in CHILLY
none of this cool 90’s stuff.

Unique parts and purposes…

“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
Marianne Williamson

Yes, I believe we are beings with unique parts to play. I think there are many basic reasons for our being here that are common to all of us.  I also believe that there is a reason for each of us that is a paramount purpose, something that is ours alone to accomplish.

I think we are here to love and be loved, to work, contribute, and serve to make the world a woman-1195276_640safe, healthy, peaceful home for all. How we do this is determined by our skills and abilities, education and beliefs, dreams and aspirations. Some may do many things and others may have few accomplishments. Some may make big important discoveries or inventions and others may live quiet unassuming lives that seem small in comparison. But all of us are needed in some way.

As for our paramount purpose, it may be of major importance for all the people of the world or for just one person. Some may know what their purpose is and some may not. Some might know the what and when and where and who of their purpose, however, I believe most do not know. What we know or don’t know doesn’t matter. We could accomplish our assigned task early in life or on the last day of our life. I doubt anyone leaves this earth without fulfilling their purpose.

I know what my basic responsibilities are,
but do I know what my principal purpose is?
Nope, haven’t a clue!
Do you know yours?

FFI week 14…

Friendly Fill-Ins  Week 14

The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete.
Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements,
the final two are provided by Annie of Mcguffy’s Reader.


  1. My nickname is…well, it depends on our relationship or when you first met me.  If you are my family it’s PJ. If you met me before I was 40 it’s Pat. If you met me after I had my mid-life crisis of sorts there is no nickname just my name, Patricia.

  2. The first thing I ever won was a big box of salt water taffy. I was five or six and entered a coloring contest sponsored by a comic book company, Dell Comics(?).

  3.  I have never been to a prom.

  4. Next year I hope to have completed my mission to simplify my life by seriously decluttering and giving away many unneeded possessions.

A good week…

Celebrating the Small Things


  • Several months ago I had cataract surgery on both eyes and today I went to the ophthalmologist to get the final exam. Everything is good. My distance vision is 20-20 and with “cheater” glasses I can see to read and do close work fine. Now I will just go once a year for a check-up. \O/ Definitely something to celebrate!
  • The other thing to celebrate is that today it was a cool 94*. I know that is still hot but not as bad as the 100+* we have been having all summer.
  • One more thing…I lost the five pounds I gained and now back at my goal weight.

A good week!
