An Odd Day

My day began at midnight I think, small wonder that it was odd. I had fallen asleep in my chair and woke up at 12, wide awake. Oh boy, I love being wide awake at midnight...not. I decided to read for a while hoping that I would fall back asleep. I fell in and out of wakefulness till 6:30 when I decided I might as well get out of bed and drink my morning tea. It didn't feel like morning. A thunder storm was gathering on the horizon and the skies were quite dark. Once the rain came, I went back to bed hoping those missing zzzzz's were in my future. I tossed about and stayed in bed till noon arising still feeling unrefreshed and by now totally out of sync with my regular routine as well.

The atmosphere was heavy all day and so was my head. I did a bit of knitting and finished a book and got a rump roast in the oven for dinner. There was a brief period of sketchy sunlight during which I slogged around the yard looking at the gardens and pulling a few weeds. More clouds rolled in, the kids showed up for dinner and just after they left we got another thunderstorm, thankfully no wind, and no hail.

And now it's a bit after 9 and I'm still awake having finally come to full consciousness. Husband is off playing pool and it's very quiet here, nice, just the sound of the spring peepers. Got a little more done on the peace pole, it's coming along nicely. If it rains as is predicted again tomorrow, I may do more lettering.

Tomorrow is Anah's 12th birthday and I have her presents to wrap. I put that off till the last minute as I am a pretty lousy present wrapper and I don't enjoy it much. She has a field trip to St. Louis tomorrow as well which is an extra present as they are going to The City Museum, not a museum really..hard to describe..a link can do that so much better than I though I have been there.http://www.citymuseum.org/.

I am thinking good weather thoughts for their trip as some of the "museum" is outside and rain would spoil that. Of course, most of all, I just want them all to be safe and have a marvelous time.

I think I'll see if Netflix has anything that interests me that I haven't already seen, might be a good night for a British mystery.

I appreciate thunderstorms and rain.

I am grateful for my good healthy and that of my family.

I am grateful for tiny sprouting veggies.

The City Museum sounds so intriguing! Lucky girl to be going there.

I like how you end your writings with a gratitude list.

This sounds kind of like my day today. I slept in until almost 11am. My body must have needed sleep. Now my day just feels off. Still drinking coffee at 2:30 which means I may be wide awake tonight. It's overcast and dreary which of course doesn't motivate me to get anything done today.

I am not a good wrapper either. Luckily my husband is so he gets that job unless the presents are for him. In that case he just laughs at my attempts.

Ok. I should try to accomplish something around here. Enjoy your day! :)

I love sleep.. Now that' I'm O L D, I can admit that I really enjoy naps especially on rainy days.

My husband ended up helping me with the gifts, we ran out of wrapping paper and so he used brown packing paper that he had saved and drew on them with magic markers. I found it amazing that he was doing such a thing.. after 40 years he can still surprise me. Hah

Because I'm at home now, without the structure of work, I'm finding myself going through some of this. It's disconcerting. Do your children live close?

Yes, my 4 daughters (have no sons) all live within an hour of where I live. Amazing Anah who you will no doubt read about in my journal comes here after school 3 days a week. I think I'm almost an anachronism .. lol.. my career was and is my family.

I've come to think that humans really are creatures of habit and when our routines are disrupted we become disoriented. I notice when my daughters (all of whom have careers) have time off for some reason they don't know what to do with themselves.

Will you have much more time off? You can read so many books..............
