Day 10-May 7, 2013

        I made the greatest discovery today.  It's called taking time for yourself.  I didn't know I could sit still as long as I did today without hanging onto a keyboard.  I actually sat outside the bus in beautiful sunny weather, surrounded by green meadows and woods. 
         I also did something I never have enough time to do.  Let me see if I can remember what it is called.  Oh, yeah, I read a book.  Really!!  A book.  Not manuscript pages.  Not on a Kindle or computer.  How cool was that?!?!
          Bonnie and Little Roy had some friends over for dinner.  I made a Spanish-style shrimp and instead of rice which would be the tradition, I made creamy grits made with half and half and garlic herb butter and parmesan cheese.
          All that resting and slow moving has worn me out.  More tomorrow.

Until next time,


  1. Reading is always a good thing. Note to self: MAKE time to read more! Odd timing - I read this blog right after getting a letter from my dad where he announces he's just discovered how lovely it is to sit outside in his Adirondack chair and just enjoy the day. He's 93 now and has been "BUSY" all his life with work, chores, building things, fixing things etc. Never sleeps in, never goofs off. And he just now discovers how lovely it is to make time to smell the roses! You beat him by a huge margin!

  2. Dolores, are you still in Lincolnton? We wanted to come over and see you Saturday but getting Bob out in all that rain wasn't our best idea. :)

    1. It was a miserable day Saturday. Cold and wet, but the music and seeing friends was well worth it. We will be here until Monday. Starting tomorrow is the first day of the Jeff and Sheri Easter Homecoming. There will be gospel music for three nights. Linda Randall tomorrow. Karen Peck Friday. And Jason Crabb Saturday.
