When I flipped over to a new week in my planning calendar, I found Monday blank. Oh, no. I don't like completely unstructured days.
After a busy Saturday (see previous post) we had a slower Sunday.
Well, it wasn't all this slow. We did clean house and do laundry in the morning. It poured down rain most of the day, setting a new record for this day in April. April showers, and all that, making for soggy April flowers.
I did my exercises indoors, including 10 miles on the stationary bike. Tom spent a lot of time on the computer, searching still for clues to those illusive Reeder ancestors.
In the late afternoon we attended a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for some friends we know through teaching. I wondered if we would still be hale and healthy in six years and if we would want a big to do.
But then, that Monday blank page. What to do? It's still cold outside, but the rain has stopped. It's very lush out in the garden, lovely to look at from inside.
As usual when I have time on my hands, I migrated to the desk top computer, where I spent at least an hour reading and responding to all of your blogs. That was fun, and a luxury I don't usually allow myself in the morning.
Then I spent about an hour on my physical therapy exercise, the ones that make it possible to keep moving without pain. I interrupted myself to take some of these photos, my mind on a post about nothing.
Now the antique clocks have all struck 12:00 noon, except the old clock that just makes up any time it wants to strike. I love that old clock best. And here I am sitting in my recliner, another thing I never do in the morning, writing this post about nothing.
That's what happens when you have nothing planned - nothing happens.
But I think I'm saved. Tom has just come down from the desk top computer with a stack of paper and the Pennsylvania Atlas. I think he is ready to talk about our summer trip. He is in charge of planning this one, because, besides attending my niece's wedding, we are going in search of his ancestors. I get to go along for the ride this time instead of being the one who does all of the research and planning.
And the rain has stopped, so maybe I can go for a walk this afternoon.
