A BUSY DAY
What do you think when you see this photo? This was a question that was asked on facebook about this scene. Some people said beautiful, gorgeous, peaceful while others said lonely or sad. So I'm curious what you think about it? My first impression was that I loved the colors, I thought it was peaceful and a beautiful relaxing way to end the day. But I can see the other side too. It does look kind of lonely and sad.
Such a busy week I have had. My sore throat finally went away. I call next week to get a follow-up appointment with the doctor. I really want to know what it all means. I'm hoping it is just my acid reflux that is causing this.
Even though I seem to work all day around here, little gets done. How does that happen? Even though I do laundry every day it still piles up. Again, what is going on? The only thing I've been staying on top of is the dishes. I really have to crack down on things because I have set myself deadlines to getting things done.
The one day I will not push myself is Sunday. My Sundays are mornings spent in church, afterwards enjoying a leisurely lunch and then napping and reading. Such a good day.
Hopefully today I will begin my garden posts. I say hopefully because it is predicted a high in the 30s F. (0*C). If it is too cold, I will not be going out to take photos. I have cold induced asthma and I will not take a chance on having an attack. You will all just have to wait until next week to see my tulips, iris and daffodils. Oh yes, the lilac bush has little leaf buds too. I'm looking forward to going to Home Depot and getting some bedding plants to begin sprucing up the yard this week.
Here's another youtube video Joe and I watched that we recommend for your viewing pleasure. It's "A Tudor Feast at Christmas" and is set in 1590 during the reign of Henry VIII. These history videos and series are so interesting!
I also joined a Book Club that is held in Great Britain. We meet online and last night was the first meeting. It's so interesting to hear other people's reaction and know that you weren't the only one who felt that way about the book. We are reading "The Last Curtsey" by Margaret Rhoads who was Queen Elizabeth's first cousin. She died very recently. The book is really good. We read the first two chapters this past week and are reading the next three chapters for next Saturday. I really have to catch up because I didn't finish the second chapter. I had read most of it, though, so could keep up with what was being said. If you like biographies, this is a really good book. I looked in the library, but they didn't have it. So I bought it from Amazon and had it put on my Kindle. I think I paid $5 for it (or thereabouts). I will do a review of it when I finish it.
And now I really must go to bed. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
