Monday musings…

Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more,
and don’t get so worked up about things.
Kenneth Branagh

Well, it’s after seven and I am just now writing today’s musing. I’m doing it late, not because I was busy and didn’t have time to write, but because I was in a crummy mood. I have been in this mood for a few days. No big reason for it, and it is time for it to be gone!

When I was trying to think of something to write about, I saw the quote I posted above Jack’s picture. Something I needed to see. It made me think about my bad mood. What a waste of time, being miserable about nothing. Thinking about it made me laugh at myself. What a silly woman I am!

I feel better, though I still don’t have anything to write.
So, I will just say goodnight.

Thursday thoughts…

I love being able to take
a nap in the afternoon.
Edie Falco

Today’s nap was a need
Not simply a want
A bad mood to be remedied

Something just wasn’t right
Not that anything was wrong
I slept fine last night

But I woke up tired
Not my usual rested self
I felt sorta wired

And quite frankly
Not a good start to the day
I was sorta cranky

I showered and got dressed
Read the paper and did the puzzles
Still felt ugly and distressed

I looked at my two felines
Taking their naps
They were happy and fine

And I thought it’s been a while
Since I had an afternoon snooze
So I got on the sofa with a smile

Wasn’t long and I was asleep
Like the cats happy and fine
Somewhere in dreamland deep

When I was once again awake
Like the cats happy and fine
Naps are wonderful to take

I must remember
There is much good
In afternoon slumber

Wednesday writing · whatever!

Wednesday, writing whatever…

I didn’t write Monday, musings… because I was in a terrible mood since Sunday. So I decided to spare you. I wasn’t going to write today because things weren’t much better for most of the day.  That means I was an ugly, grumbling, complaining, horrible bitch for four days!  Not my usual self for sure.

I seem to have gotten back to my normal self but I am now in no mood to write.  That ever happen to you?  I am going to take a bath and go to bed.  I can’t stand being outta sorts!

Tomorrow is going to be a wonderful day!

Contentment…

Today is Tuesday and that means Chatter

When I was wondering what to chat about I got to thinking about being content.
The reason this is on my mind is because I was not content last night
and I woke up this morning in the same ugly mood.
This is not my usual state.
I was in this mood because I had an appointment this morning
that I did not want to go to.
Because of my snotty state I cancelled the appointment and stayed home.
Not smart.
Now I have to reschedule the appointment.
This has not improved my mood.
I was unhappy with what was and now unhappy with what will be.

Socrates said it best
“He who is not contented with what he has,
would not be contented with what he would like to have.”

Sometimes I just get so mad at myself!

All mad and pouty…

Teddy is in a mood.
I am not sure why.
Maybe because his dish is empty,
or because I made him get out of the bathtub
so I could take a shower, or because it is hot and the a/c
is on and the door is closed and he can’t go outside, or
maybe because I wouldn’t give him any of my ice cream.
Maybe it is something else.
I don’t know why but he is definitely in a
!MOOD!

But doesn’t he look cute all mad and pouty?

I have been very dull of late, because of the heat I think.
It could be making my brain sweat and swelter
and rendering it unable to think properly.

Thank you, Teddy, for giving me something
for Tuesday Chatter and for making me smile.
♥ He makes me happy.

Today is Saturday, November 20, 2010

 

Ok, I just spent a good bit of time on a really wonderful post.  Trust me it was one of my best.   Then somehow it got deleted. I have no idea how it happened, surely it was not my fault but some random erase fiend that attacked my computer.  I am not in the mood for this.  I am now angry and want to throw my computer far far away.  But of course I will not cause I am a sane and rational person, most of the time but maybe not right now.

I am going to walk away and come back at a time when I am back to my usual pleasant silly self.  Too bad y’all missed some really good thoughts.  If I can recapture them I will put them here.  The recaptured thoughts will not be as spectacular though.  Sorry.
