These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

I'm tired. Some days I'm more tired than others, and today is in that former category. This is one of those days that seems as if I got nothing done, but as I sit here and tally it up, it was a lot. And my house is still a wreck! It's just a process; I clean up a room, then bring in boxes for that room or start a project of some sore, and suddenly the room is full of clutter again. It seems never ending. I know it will end, but right now it just seems hopeless.

I started one project today that is fun. In a day or two I'll have some pictures of it to show you, but for now just know that, like every project, it turned into more than I anticipated. And I moved furniture in the bedroom, and I'm very happy with it. When I was invisioning where the furniture would go, I'd forgotten (duh! after not seeing it for over 1.5 years that I hadn't seen it!!) just how large the all the items actually were. So where I pictured it in my head, it looked good, but it was just not right. A few minor rearrangements, and it looks very nice. I'm happy with it.

I though I'd finished laundering all the linens, towels and clothes from storage, but in the totes I brought from Albuquerque yesterday, I'd forgotten that I put a few summer clothes and a bunch of my PJs and neglige├ęs, so I'm washing again.

I think tomorrow I'm going to take a day to play. Whadya think?


  1. You little busy body! LOL

    Cleaning...Hmmm, I wonder if that's something I'm SUPPOSED to be doing too? I mean, just like you, I recently moved...wait, 8 years ago isn't recent, is it? Oh well, it was worth a try :-).

    Yes, I think you SHOULD take a day to play (and take pictures)..hee hee. Have an awesome weekend, Lord knows you deserve it!

  2. I think you DEFINITELY deserve a day to play! Everyone does! Thanks again for my surprise. It makes me smile just thinking about it! I'm still unpacking too *sigh*

  3. Dawn - Well, even before I read this, I KNEW you were going to tell me to take pictures, so..... see my new post!! ;-) And FYI, 8 years isn't a long time!! You have a good weekend, too!

    Patti - Your surprise? What surprise is that? ;-) I'm downsizing, as you know to a house that is about 1/2 the size. This is what I wanted, and I did well on getting furniture down to the right size, but the "stuff," the belongings people accumulate over 30 years is the hard to deal with end of the move. Man, I'll be glad when it is just OVER!!

  4. Definitely take a day to play. Or two. Or three. The great thing is that you can if you want to. You're the boss !

    I was tired this morning and slept in... It felt good to still be in bed at 6:30 !

  5. Annie - Glad you slept in. I usually get up about 7:00, but I was restless last night and rose early. I was in the shower before 6:00! I love being in a circumstance that says I can do ... or not do!! ... anything I desire!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
