"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberatly. I wanted to live deep and suck all the marrow out of life". Henry Thoreau
Sometimes I wake up and wonder, "What's going to happen today"? I sit here preparing for the day and I wish I could sleep less. There are so many things I love to do and not enough time in the day. Right now I am going to school so that does cut into a lot of the extra time I would have. I just keep plugging along trying to get everything I want done. I have this little routine that I do when I get up. Depending on how I feel depends on how I get out of bed. This morning I didn't want to get up. It was colder in the room than I would have liked it to be. I keep my bedroom door closed all day and night to keep the room cool. I love sleeping in a cold room. My bed is like sleeping on a cloud. Between the bed and my down comforter I feel like I'm in a cloud. It is so roasty toasty. This morning when I woke up I was all snug in my cloud and with the room being cold I just didn't want to get up. I laid there for a while falling back to sleep for about 45 minutes. I told myself I better get up or I wouldn't get all the things I needed to do done. I tossed back the covers exposing myself to the cold room. Throwing on my sweats and a thermal shirt for I wasn't going anywhere this morning I headed to the bathroom to brush my teeth. When I look in the mirror each morning I wonder where that young woman went? Now there is this gray haired woman looking back at me. I look and check to see if there are any changes. Isn't it interesting to see yourself and note how there might be more wrinkles or maybe you just noticed your first real wrinkle. Maybe it just hit you all at once, now you are old? I like to look at it like I am in the Autumn of my life. I love Autumn. Anyway I took my pills and I was ready to start the day. I greet Kali, my old cat, who no longer sleeps in my room because she likes to sleep up by my head and I do not like that. The fire has died down so I stoke it up to keep the house warm. I zap yesterdays "Peppermint Mocha", feed the cat, turn on the computer and lay out my web sites. I have to check my emails, read the lastest communications on Facebook and get my blog opened so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have a lot of reading to do, flash cards to make so I can study all of the information I have to remember for each of my classes. That is the beginning of my day. We haven't even gotten past 9am yet. I still have to touch bases with people on the phone and that can take hours. I seriously do not know how I get it all done sometimes. Well I must part here. I have got to get back to making my flash cards. See you all later.
