I’ve always loved Sunday Mornings. I sometimes find myself sleeping a little later than the rest of the week. I make my ‘fancy’ coffee – I add ground cinnamon, ground ginger and freshly ground nutmeg to the coffee grounds. And I just take life easy. Today the house is exceptionally quiet as the kiddo is over at her Grandma and Aunty’s house and my Mom is at work. Mom retired last year (May 19th, 2014) but found herself bored so she acquired a job and works there 3 – 4 days a week for a couple of hours a day.
Ok…back to me and random thought #1. There are a few chores that I should get done today and I will work on them…eventually. Next weekend the neighborhood that I live in is having a rummage sale. Since we are moving in a short two years or so I want to get rid of stuff as soon as possible. This, however, means that I need to get all those items into one area, dust them off – if need be, price them, and then make sure I didn’t miss anything. Sounds easy, eh? No…not so much. I live in the house that my grandparents built in 1940. We still have some of the items that they had as well as stuff that has been acquired in the 71 years this house has been occupied. By no means are we hoarders or pack rats, we just have a lot of totes and bins full of stuff.
Random thought #2: I need to do some much needed research on the next step of my journey. I know what I want to do, but am unsure of the best ways of obtaining that goal. So, I’ll be searching the interwebs for information and hopefully gleaning some much needed guidance.
Random thought #3: Do I buy a new bed or just get a futon mattress that I can roll up? I do enjoy the idea of rolling up the mattress and having extra space but in reality, the mattress may just continue to lay on the floor. Also, what about when we move? If the cost is stupid to bring stuff with us, compared to just buying everything there, we’ll be leaving everything here.
Random thought #4: I grilled dinner last night…it was glorious. I don’t think I’ll use the stove until the cold crappy weather sets in. If the weather is rainy, we have umbrellas.
Random thought #5 – and the last thought of the morning: Tomorrow is Memorial Day (I live the USA). I don’t like violence or wars, never did, never will. I earned a BA in History so I know that war is a constant in our world – it will never go away. I wish it would. But that’s a Utopian ideology and one that’s never going to happen. With that said, I am grateful and deeply saddened by all those men, women, boys, and girls, who gave their lives to protect the freedom of their country.
