Luck and Love on a Monday

Leave a comment

I got lucky and picked the Eagles yesterday. I got lucky and fell madly in love with my wife and I’m just as much in love with her today as I was 4 decades ago. I got lucky and made it home this morning instead of slipping into a ditch. I got lucky and was able to breathe, have enough to eat and shelter all of which we all take for granted too much. And so we begin this Monday on a roll and positive spirits.

Glad this is gone.

Lifted up by the time with family and friends this past weekend and the coming plans this week. I feel like I’m living again. Appreciating each day. Its good when you feel good and can have those feelings. I wish I could keep an even or enlightened perspective more often. Sometimes I slip and get selfish or take for granted all the wonderful parts of my life.

So I’m feeling good and trying to help out around here. Dinner is rolling and I’m doing some other domestics, just humming along and then I look out the basement window and find some other work of the ice. And as I snapped this was wondering if my bow saw is in my workroom or in the shed. I’ve got to get rid of these overgrown wonders of sap and pine cones. No really they are beautiful trees and I’ve enjoyed the sounds the wind makes through them for decades, but they are out of control and too near the house. That is a small twig compared to what is above it.

So my mojo was interrupted with the sight of that and the task of taking it to the scrap pile in the lower back. But I’m going to power through because I’ve got a great Tuesday ahead. Unless that thing poked a hole in the shed.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Trust is a wonderful thing, just use it sparingly.

Looks like I was about a year early on that market adjustment. Should have figured a year of additional greed to go before it.

Treason for not clapping. Interesting take.

A country divided we are till we find common leadership that unites us.

Liar’s bother me.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
