A Timeless Place
My view early this morning while getting the paper, the sun was greeting me and promising a sunny beautiful day! Most of the leaves have dropped in my area and suddenly the cool air has somewhat arrived. The birds are still singing and the crickets are chirping, but I know soon there will be the silence that heralds in late fall early winter.
This week found me facing technical difficulties that were overall minor but in my mind blown out of proportion. My internet was down for three hours and I was distraught (yes, crazy) over my reaction and to its absence. While I was on the phone complaining to my daughter she suggested I read a book. Didn't she know it wasn't that time of the day to read a book? It was that time of the day to be on the internet. Funny how the mother daughter relationship takes a role reversal at times. I was the petulant child whining over a problem that I had no control of in any way.
So I picked up my book and entered into a timeless place where internet problems are absent. My afternoon ended up quite relaxing and yes the internet was restored but my reading took precedence, as it should. Free time doesn't need to have technical difficulties.
Along with internet woes, I had some iphone issues that required a trip to the genius bar. My husband and I decided to make it a day trip and had lunch out with yarn shopping and used cd-record shopping. We had a fun time and yes, I did buy more yarn, I had to console myself somehow. (and the genius bar replaced my phone)
So today as I sit here typing up my post with the internet, I'm planning on a weekend filled with reading, knitting and enjoying the last of fall's color display-one swift wind will result in bare trees. My "do nothing" weekends are my favorite.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
