Morning Musings: The Simple Woman's Daybook for Sunday, July 22, 2012

Outside my window … a quiet morning.  For once the dude on the corner isn’t playing loud music, drinking beer, and honking his horn at every car that passes.

I am thinking...
about my already horrible weekend.  I wish I didn’t have to go anywhere today.  I know it’s just going to be more of the same.

I am thankful...
for good hearing.

In the kitchen...
  I had another binge yesterday, so I really shouldn’t eat anything today.  I don’t know.

I am wearing...
I haven’t gotten out of bed yet, so I’m still in my bedclothes.

I am creating...
My scrunchies are still selling very well (yay).  So, I’m still making those, plus I’m working on a crocheted tiger patter for the Auburn fans.  You would think that something like that wouldn’t be so hard to find.  The Roll Tide elephant was easy.  We’ll see how it goes.

I am church, then back home probably.

I am wondering...
if I seriously need medication.  No joke.  I’m seriously wondering if I don’t need Zoloft of Prozac or something.

I am reading...
In the Company of Others by Jan Karon. I thoroughly enjoyed her Mitford series.  This book, the second of the Father Tim novels, is not an enjoyable read.  But I’m going to finish it anyway.  It’s a shame.  Her other books were wonderful, but this one is downright confusing, and dare I say it,  boring.  Oh, well, everyone has an off day.  This is her one off book.

I am hoping...
that I get heard, really heard.

I am looking forward to... football season.  I’m looking forward to listening to Eli Gold call Bama games on the radio.  I’m looking forward to the Southerners reunion, and hope I can make it this time.  I’m looking forward to a potential drum-fest with some of the fellows from JHS.  Man, I miss playing snare.

I am learning… that I have given my power to people who definitely don’t have my best interest at heart.

Around the house... A little straightening up today.  I’ll do the deep stuff during the week.  Need to reorganize the craft closet again.

I am pondering...  the meaning of it all.

A favorite quote for today... Don't mistake my kindness for weakness, my ability to look over things as ignorance - but make no mistake, when I've had enough, I'm done!” – Author Unknown.

One of my favorite things... Reading.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Mon: Volunteering at Sav-a-life. Tue:  taking some of the family to run errands and such. Ripping At&T a new one AGAIN this week. Mostly working in the workshop and hopefully making some sales.

A peek into my day...

(My old Yamaha bass is dead yet again, and more jury rigging isn't going to help.  THIS is what I want to replace it with.) 
UPDATE  I did receive this coveted bass guitar as a late birthday present from one of my musician buddies about a month after this post was written.  GOD IS AWESOME!

  1. I like your favorite quote! I think you're doing well. Just start today, fresh. Eat and eat well:) That's what I do. If I focus on yesterday's mess, which I can never undo, I get all bogged down and my bad eating starts all over again. Day by day, I say;) I was looking at your scrunchies and thinking, I need some of those for my sweet girl! I'm glad they are selling well. I always enjoy your daybook!
