All day rain and
at times blowing so heavy on the windows
that it is difficult to view the outdoors.
A good day to read the growing stack of books
but she does not feel like reading.
For a short time she curls up in the old leather chair
with a blank mind. So nice to have this active mind
empty..... She has learned in these late years that the mind
is difficult to control and wonders why she was not aware of this
many years ago. Now she replaces thoughts that disturb
her peace - as quickly as possible - with a pleasant one.
Most of the time something her
two youngest granddaughter's have said to her :)
Their comments always make her smile....
A few chores finished but a long list that needs to be tackled.
Will do them another day.
On rainy days ironing is pleasurable.
Probably a lost art for most but there are Christmas tablecloths
and half a dozen pillow cases that need to be ironed.
She still enjoys starched and ironed pillow cases
and has memories of all the ironing done for a big family.
In a way it seems like yesterday and then in an instant
so long ago.
The storage room is a perfect place for ironing and the ironing board
stays up all the time.
Dropping temperatures throughout the day and this area is still nice
and warm. Tomorrow it will be cold as no heat and air were put in this area.
May still do this even though
this enjoyable room stays comfortable most of the time.
Linens not like in the past and most sheets and pillow cases she has are very old
and almost feel like silk. Purchases over the last years
have been disappointing as the quality is not like those in
the past. It seemed that in a short time an imperfection would surface
then it was too late for them to be returned.
Making a call I would be told it had been 2 years since they were purchased
and I commented but I have sheets that are over 20 years old and still perfect.
She wonders why she still cannot download her images on blogger and has to go
to FireFox to do this?
