Monday Musings



It's been a delightful day! After using my early morning time to check email, respond to blog comments, visit a few blogs, play with Molly, and leave a brief post at Small Reflections ...
I had a pleasant lunch with my "happily retired" teacher friends and then ran errands on the way home before taking Molly for an afternoon walk. As I sat down to write this post a few minutes ago, my sister called from the road ... and I just got off the phone after learning all about about what they've been doing the last couple of days and what they plan to do next. They're having a wonderful time ... currently on the coast of Georgia south of Jekyll Island in St. Mary's or Cumberland ... headed for Jacksonville Florida tomorrow.

I'm about to fix dinner then watch TENNIS! It's the Australian Open. I recorded the afternoon matches while I was out running errands and walking Molly. In a few minutes ... the evening broadcast session begins. My brother gave me a racket and taught me the game when I was 11 or 12. I played tennis throughout college competitively, then for fun and exercise for decades. I don't play any longer, but I do love to watch the four major tournaments each year.

Before I turn off my computer for the evening (if you have the time and inclination), I'd like to recommend that you visit Peajay's blog and read her latest two posts. One is Children's Views of Angels, and the second a story entitled, "I Wish You Enough" ... both excellent.

Food for Thought
"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep."
Rumi

Sounds like a delightful day! What could be better than a little reading, a little writing, time with Molly and time catching up with friends and family. Tennis was the icing on your cake. :) (For me it would be baseball!)

Thank you all for visiting while I played and leaving your “calling card” for me to discover when I returned.
