Not a Typical Day
let Callie out
washed load of clothes
hung on line
water turnip greens
and last of flower garden
hang bird feeders out
(take them down each evening because of squirrels)
a special call from granddaughter in New York
pull car out of garage
Clean up and head for funeral home in
small town 25 minutes away
The young woman who has cleaned my teeth for 15 years
father passed away - he was 86 - a terrible accident on their farm.
Since I did not have garden clothes on
headed for local small town.
Stopped at local paper office to renew subscription
and bought 3 bars of handmade soap that was locally made.
Picked up quiche and desert to take home.
Stopped in local office to see someone
past problems and I wanted to smile
and see if I could ever be of help -
they were too busy to see me.
All the way home I said metta
and thought I will not take this personally...
message my attorney had passed away
56 years old with heart attack.
I am sad.. Saw him 3 weeks ago.
On phone 2 hours with Verizon about new
air card that is suppose to be better then
old one. Does not work.
Using my old card.
phone calls from children
bring Miss Callie inside
Call from special friend who takes care of bed ridden husband.
Get ready for nighttime
reading and meditation.
Did not sleep well.
Much on my mind.....
Today a better day
my mind has cleared
Visitied local small nursery
to see what was marked down.
Bought a basket of thyme for
I hear gun shots in the distance
do not know what hunting season is open
I think it is Dove
I do not like it
it makes me sad.
Looking forward to solitude
Do not like the busyness
of the last 5 days....
I must remember
to slow down - and
Don't take anything personally
Don't make assumptions
Always do your best
Be Impeccable with your word
