What an Experience!!!

Does anyone like to move? The only thing  accomplished in my opinion is  a lot of stress and strain with a great opportunity to get rid of the junk collected over the time you’ve been in your home. Right now my world is in total upheaval. My new home is upside down. Tile people have been working here since Thursday afternoon laying new tile throughout the house.  It will be wonderful once they are done, but right now every piece of furniture is piled in the dining room.

The next part of the adventure after the tile is painting. Right now all the walls are painted white and that doesn’t suit me at all. I want color on my  walls. I think white walls are boring. The hard part is coming up with the colors I want. I spend a lot of time looking at paint sample cards and the color wheel. Once I can make a decision about my wall colors every thing else flows smoothly.

My blogging will continue to be slow. Maybe I can do it once a week until things are settled and then resume my Mon., Wed. and Friday schedule. I have to say I do miss the routine of my writing daily, but I can’t handle it with everything I’m trying to take care of with this move.  Thanks for letting me whine a little bit.  Until next time.

Taking The Easy Way Out

Standard

Ok, I admit it, I am doing things the easy way today.  I have decided instead of wracking my rather weak brain (today) to try to think of something to blog about, I am going to post some poetry I have already written.  I think most of us choose to take the easy way out at times, no matter what we are doing.

Our life is full of conveniences, which is diffidently the easy way out.  For instance, using the electric can opener, instead of the hand-held you opened by turning a crank.  I am grateful for the electric, but it does give me pause to think about all the people in the past who had arthritis in their joints, how they ever manged.  Another convenience, the vacuum cleaner, isn’t that taking the easy way out, instead of using a broom to sweep everything up.  The list goes on and on and we take it all for granted.

What happens if another great depression hits, and no one has any money to pay electric or gas bills or buy food.  Do you think you know enough to help you survive.  I feel very blessed, I was taught how to live without the amenities we have today.  It would not be easy and I would never want to see it happen, but I know my family and I can survive.

It is a very tough world we live in, and I honestly believe it will continue to get worse.  I am not talking politics here, I am just talking about life in general.  We improve in some areas but in others we seems to be involved in a landslide headed down the hill.  Hum, I think I just wrote my blog, and I will let you read my poem anyway.  That’s my two-cents for today.

Forever

Not long enough

The depth of your love
