Yesterday was a fairly regular Wednesday. I got a flu shot, hung out at home and went to Overcomers in the evening. Only one more week and it’s a pot luck dinner. Though it has had its high points, I will be glad to get my Wednesday evenings back. Someday I will write about Overcomers but it’s not the right time yet. I did get home without enough energy to write in my blog. But here is what I am grateful for on this Thursday:
- Whole days at home
I am a child of the Television Age. I was raised on the glass tit and I’m not ashamed to say so. There are lots of shows that I truly look forward to week in and week out. I record them so that I am always free to live life. I don’t want to be tied to the TV. I think I have a good variety of what I like – some drama, some comedy, some reality and a whole lot of HGTV. I usually have the TV on in my studio as white noise. If I try to sew or do any other work without background noise, I tend to flit from one thing to another and I don’t like that feeling. TV provides me with the ability to focus and for that I am grateful.
Hollis and I just recently found a new to us hamburger joint. It’s been in Cibolo for a few years but we just discovered it on our way home from working out at the Y. It is small. Not more than 12 or so tables and you order at a counter and wait for burgers to come to the table. I can get a small cheeseburger with some avocado slices on it and tater tots and H can get the next size up burger with fries. We love the food and it doesn’t take long to get food and get on our way home. We are really happy to have a nearby spot to get a good burger at a locally owned restaurant.
I stayed home all day today. I didn’t leave until H and I went to the Y (and the burger joint). I usually have one or more places to go in any given day so when a day comes along that I can just stay here, that is a really good day! I sewed some and embroidered some. I put away a load of laundry. I enjoyed the solitude (and the TV, and the sewing and embroidery machines) but I’m always glad when Hollis gets home. I can only be people free for so long and then I need interaction. There was a hard rainstorm this morning which made me glad I didn’t have to go anywhere. It just added to the gratefulness.
This is one of those really dull entries that I dread posting. Hang in there with me – I will have more exciting days! Tomorrow I get to spend the day with Maxx and Cayden and Capri will be here Saturday. That should give me plenty to write about and some good photos too!
Sleep well friends!
