No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

A Curse and a Sigh

"The real challenge is no to survive. Hell, anyone can do that. It's to survive as yourself, undiminished." - Elia Kazan


Yesterday I was reminded by a friend that last night was the night in which we have to turn back our clocks.

Grrr. Hurrrumph! Growl.

I hate these time changes. I did change the clock in the bedroom and the one in the bathroom since they are easy to change. I wrote to Bex that my first thought of the easiest clock for me to change is the microwave. The rest of them have their little quirks.

Now I have to get my body to adjust to the change. This is one of the reasons I like to change as many clocks as I can so when I wake up, I don't have to think about what time it is. It just is.

In about a week I will be settled in but I feel like Rhubarb does that we all need to send letters to our politicians and let them know how we feel and find out what needs to be done to stop this nonsense.

One of the sites I did some reading on by a power company in California, stated there really wasn't any savings in power going back and forth in time. Well, if there is no savings, why are we still doing it?

The sigh for today is that Michael was going to leave at 4:30 a.m. this morning to help a friend at a swap meet. This means I have some time alone. I sort of woke up when Michael left. I listened to some music and that wasn't helping, I got up and read for an hour or so. Then I went to back to bed and actually went to sleep.

I woke up again at 8:30 a.m. surprised I had truly been asleep. I dressed and then went for my walk. I had been on a three day hiatus and it felt good to be back at the loop. Today, I brought my mp3 player with me and that kept me at a jaunty step.

The excellent thing about today's walk was I found a lot of free stuff on the side of the street. Hot dog!

First stop, I found a medium-sized cast iron pan, and some frames. Instead of leaving them and coming back for them, I carried them with me for the rest of the walk. Geesh, my goodies were a bit heavy but I wasn't going to take any chances of someone else grabbing them.

Later on my home street, I found more frames, some ice trays, cool glasses, a Rubbermaid bowl and nail polishes.

Once home I unpacked my free stuff and settled in to sit back and watch a movie.

The rest of my free time, I finished watching "The Fortunes of War" with Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson. What a treat and now I want to watch it again. I won't though because I have some others I need to get to.

I also did some housework, though Michael told me to take it easy. It felt good to get to the things I had on my list.

I have to say, today was a gorgeous day. When I left the house to go for my walk, I noticed as I locked the door how warm it was. The voice in head or it was Sir Thomas my walking stick telling me to leave my light jacket at home? I didn't listen and a block later I was tying my jacket around my waist.

Michael arrived home after 1 p.m. He was spent what with getting up at 4 p.m. and then being busy all day. He, too, enjoyed his day with being out with friends, talking to other bikers and giving a look to the eye candy (girls). That said, he was glad to be home and even said he had missed me. Well, I missed him too.

We ran to the pharmacy a couple of times to get all of my medications and then we settled in for the evening.

Tonight's dinner was tacos. Wow, were they good and I ate my fill. Since our daily schedule was different this day, we ended up going to bed early.

So I will leave you here, get a good night's sleep.
