Thursday, thoughts…

It’s weird
being the same age
as old people.
(I don’t know who said this but I agree.)

I have been officially old for some time
But I don’t think of myself as old
I think I am in my prime
But now behold
Another birthday bell did chime
How many times won’t be told!

Thursday thoughts…

I try to maintain a healthy dose of daydreaming, to remain sane.
Florence Welch

I can’t imagine life without daydreaming. I guess there are people who think it’s just a way to waste time, but I don’t think it is time wasted. It is an important activity to keep one levelheaded and happy.

I daydream quite often. Usually a few times a day. Sometimes it leads to doing something constructive. Sometimes it solves a problem that seemed impossible to work out. Sometimes it gives me something to ponder and wonder about. Daydreaming always relieves stress and relaxes me. It never disappoints!

I don’t often give advice, but here is some…daydream today! Don’t worry, anything important on your to-do list will get done. A good daydream will make your day better then it would be without that time out to just be alone with yourself. Oh, and as far as I know there are no bad daydreams. Those would be a nightmare while you are awake (a daymare?) and I have never had one of those, and like I said I daydream quite often. So, go for it!

To hasten this day
With worries of tomorrow
Robs today of joy
Time is fleeting and precious
Live here and now with delight

Hope you understand…

Stopping in at the BrewNSpew Cafe for a chat.

The picture below is a container on my balcony.
So far I haven’t seen any hummingbirds.
Last year they visited every day.
I am hopeful that they will soon show up for a drink.


I haven’t been around to visit y’all much the last week or so. I have been taking a bit of a break from the computer. Now that I am retired I have not been very disciplined in the area of time management. When I am on the computer I totally lose track of time.

There are things that need to be done that just don’t get done. There are things I want to do that I don’t seem to have time for. All because I get on the computer and get lost in cyberspace. This is not a good thing. There is more to life than computers.

I will keep writing because I like writing and it keeps me grounded. I will also visit you but may not comment other than to hit the like button. Once I get control of my computer habit I will comment if only to say hello. Until then I am setting a timer and when it dings I log out.

Hopefully, you understand,
I am not ignoring you.

Q&Q“Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times,
It’s the only time we’ve got.”
Art Buchwald
What do you think or feel about time?

I think:
Today is the only time we really have of life. A good attitude is most important. Without a good attitude, the good times are not quite so good and the worst times are worse. So, we might as well take the good or bad with a good attitude.
