Moving Forward With New Energy

Updated on May 9, 2013

With Old Values

We continue on with what we see as a new and exciting day

The weather has turned from sunny to gray

That will not stop me in any way

I have the day off and it's so nice not to have to go to work

I can do whatever I want

Up early just with that one thought bouncing around in my head

No doctors appointments or any immediate plans

No obligations and even this weeks food shopping is already done

The house cleaning chores are also finished

What will I do ?

I will get something to eat

Then I will do what I enjoy the most

Playing with my cat for awhile for starters

Then when I am done with that

I am going outside for a walk

My mind is racing with ideas pulling my body in one direction than another

I have to text a few friends and leave messages

My wife busy doing her own errands

I have the day to myself

Later I might pull out a book I want to read

Now it is only morning and I pop on the computer and go to HubPages

Reading a few hubs gets my mind stirring

No comments for me so I have more time for other things

I stay away form the t.v.

It is like a drug I take unknowingly

Once the t.v. goes on it consumes my will and I become lifeless and still

I make a quick list of things I want to do first

Go out in my yard and check and see what plants are growing nicely

Is on the top of my list

I have twenty four hours to do so much

I know I will have to sleep sometime during that time

But for now it is so far away before I even think of going to bed

I am interested in keeping my spirits up and music always helps generate that feeling

All changed as I put on a pair of shorts and a light tee shirt

Oh I love the warm weather so much

Good bye bulky jackets and long pants and heavy sweatshirts

Talk later as my head starts to jerk

As I spring out the door and the screen shakes

I hope to see you in my travels

So keep moving and get so much done

This day is just one of many where I have so much fun

      Oh, yes. Love the summertime. I can just run out into garden barefoot and just enjoy nature. This made me smile all the way through.

      vocalcoach It just passed midnight here now I am exhausted.I went outside and decided to rake the yard.Picking up leaves and branches that fell over the winter.My wife and I put some plants in flower pots while it rained.(lol)We will remember this from years to come.I went outside and had a fire on the firepit..Relaxed not a sound except for crickets and too early for all the other nasty bugs.I am going to sleep good tonight.I worked my tail off not because I had to because I wanted to.Very nice when someone else inspires others.You inspired me to write another hub.kidscrafts I love your cats already.I am glad you put work first but don't forget to play later.kj force So much to talk about I am cheering for you to be back to your old self or even better.Thanx every0one for all your support and reading my hub.

      DREAM ON....Well nice to see you had a day to yourself for yourself...

      My days of late seem to consume me...I am overwhelmed...haven't had much time for my computer and the cobwebs are building up in my head.

      Hopefully this too shall pass...

      I am glad that you have a day off to enjoy what is around. Playing with you cat is important.... I just played with my younger cat before checking my emails.... my 17 year old cat was sound asleep, so I didn't disturb her.

      The weather is just glorious out there; I was really tempted to go pull out some weeds but I really have to work .... that's the inconvenient side of working from home.

      I hope that you will enjoy fully your 24 hours :-)
