My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Blessings and Complaints

For today, being healthy makes me feel happy. There are so many things that make me happy but if I wasn't healthy enough to enjoy them, they wouldn't mean as much to me. I love to hike so I have to stay healthy. I love to read so I have to take care of my eyesight. I love learning to scrapbook so I have to be healthy so I can work on my computer. It seems like everything I like to do is connected to taking care of myself. I believe that means physically and mentally.

My biggest gripe for today (it could be different tomorrow), is that there isn't enough hours in the day to do all that I want to do. I still have flowers that need to be planted, and gardens to be watered. I need to feed my worms (I have a worm compost bin). I need to fold clothes. I need to finish paperwork for my classroom. I have lessons that I need to plan for. I need to practice my accordion. I want to play on my computer. I want to do scrapbooking. I want to read. I want to ride my bicycle. Now, my husband calls me and says he wants to take me out to dinner so I don't have to cook! He is such a wonderful hubby that I couldn't tell him, "no, I have to much that I need and want to do rather than eat dinner out with you!" so we will go out to dinner.

Well, that's enough whining! I'm going to concentrate on the good things in life!

Those are great 'complaints' and even better 'blessings'!

Awww! It will get better. I vaguely remember the days of lesson plans, kids, checking papers and thinking this will never end. But it will and one day you, too, will be happily retired.

Good call Pat. None of those things you listed is really as important as going out to dinner with your significant other...expecially when he's the one that instigates the invitation.

Your hubby sounds so sweet! Perhaps he could be persuaded to do your paperwork and gardening ???

I hear ya onthe health- when I am not feeling well, it affects *everything.*

And yup- even if there were still extra hours inthe day, I would always have soemthing else to do. But the time spent with your hubby is precious.

How do you feed your worms and for that matter make a worm pile? I'm interrested in worm castings for my garden and grounds.
