We Did A Lot Yesterday

Updated on September 10, 2015

What's Going On

I am not sure

I have started writing two times and it has been deleted both times

Trying to do small things around the house

Waking up from a deep sleep

Why I don't know

I took a couple of Tylenol

For a slight headache

That came out of the blue

It is so unusual

The weather has been oppressive

96 and with high humidity

So we stayed at home where it was cool

All summer has been great

We didn't have to use the air conditioners

We picked up a new stand up fan

I was so impressed

So cool on a warm day

We love fresh air

Windows open and on a good day

A breeze blowing through the whole house

Rain on the way

Regular six month check up at the dentist

No fillings or changes

Teeth looking good

My gums need more flossing

It has not been my strong point

Really important for good oral hygiene

Brushing just not enough

Most of my life I grew up using a regular soft toothbrush

The last five years I use a sonic care electric brush

It feels better

Dentists say they get more plaque

Now I continue to use both

A couple of unexpected sneezes caught me by surprise

Now a little after five in the morning

Day dreaming already

What excitement will today bring

On vacation all week

We call it a stay - cation

Where we aren't going on any trips

Just staying at home

Enjoying what we work so hard for

I had to add some gravel to the front of our driveway

It washed away in the last heavy rain

We added a hard plastic four shelf rack to our kitchen closet

We currently had a plastic three draw unit

That wasn't working to well

Now more organized and clean

Sometimes that's all it takes

I wonder how to make small changes in my mind

Just like the ones I have made in the physical world

That will change my way of thinking

To make me work smarter and be more effective

I think our brain does an automatic update

Just like the computer

It's time to refresh

Erase those cookies that slow us down

Run a virus scan

Now just a few minutes later and I feel so much better

Now ready to tackle another project

Better yet relax and enjoy the ultimate in comfort

Laying down on my couch

No hurry to go no where at the moment

No place can ever be

As happy as I am here at home

With my loving family

With my wife and our cat Charlotte by my side

Enjoying more love than one man can ever have

      MsDora I try to do a juggling act and accomplish as much as I can. Sometimes I am very excited and do a great deal. Other times I am not so fortunate and things will just have to wait. Every day I try and surprise myself with the laughter and joy. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      mary615 My life is full of ups and downs. I keep trying to increase the ups and decrease the downs. Fortunately I have a wife to pick me up when I'm down and lift me higher when I'm up. I love sharing life's stories because that is how I deal with my disappointments and rejection. Always in search of living and enjoying more. Thank you for reading and sharing. Charlotte loves to be the center of attention. She thinks the world revolves around her. I don't have the heart to tell her different. We do spoil her. She gives us unconditional love every day. Have a beautiful night.

      Sounds like you have a perfect life. BTW, I love seeing your cat, he/she is just beautiful!

      Since my retirement, I have a lot of lazy days. I think I deserve some.
