Passing Time

leave a comment »

Just like that, another day is gone. Independence Day is over. The weather at the lake was a mix of perfectly summerish and occasionally rainy, and I didn’t do much beyond wallowing in the luxury of the fact it was a day off from the usual routine.

I played some guitar, read some, napped briefly, played cards, and eventually helped inflate some Rave Sports water toys.

Passing time with no agenda.

Almost as if there was some meaning to my doing so.

If there is, I’m successfully remaining oblivious to it.

Here is a “Words on Images” first posted nine years ago. Speaks to this time of year…

Night Off

with 2 comments

I got home from work yesterday and all I wanted to do was not work on the chicken coop. So that’s what I did, with Cyndie’s blessing. When I walked in the door, I found a fire burning in the fireplace and it was enough to squelch any lingering motivation to rush out into the chilly grayness of the fading day to pick up where I’d left off on the design-on-the-fly construction project.dscn5278e

I delved into some acoustic guitar music in my iTunes library and created a playlist to serve as soundtrack for luxuriating on the couch in front of the warm glow of burning logs with friends, while Cyndie made magic in the kitchen. It was divine.

Life is good.

If you don’t stop and take that in every once in a while, you might miss it.
