I tried to write today and it all came out as gobbledygook. Not sure why, but nothing seemed to flow. Usually I can start typing and literally a few minutes later a bunch of words are on the screen.
But today, I’m off.
My house is messy and my life is messy. I have over 14,000 photos on my phone and thousands more in my computer. I have a 4 terabyte Lacie extended drive that holds thousands and thousands more.
Each time I write a post, I spend hours looking for photos that go with the story I’ve written. Which is why my house is a mess.
I have papers stacked high on John’s desk; some unopened bills to pay. I’m pretty sure the license renewal for my Vespa is in that pile somewhere.
Speaking of piles…
We have a day bed in our room that our granddaughters use when they come to visit. Right now it’s piled high with my clothes. Some are dirty and some are clean and all are wrinkled.
I even found that cool summer dress I was wearing at the beach the last time the girls were here flung over one of the dining room chairs this afternoon.
I made a delicious dinner tonight of wild sockeye, fresh asparagus and cauliflower rice, only we had to eat in the living room because the dining table is covered with…stuff.
The only reason the living room is fairly clean and organized is because I got a wild hair this afternoon and went down to World Market and bought a new jute rug. It looks great and is a step in the right direction.
We had to move everything and haul out the old stained rug to bring in the new one. But at least the floor is clean underneath this one.
Things are a mess right now.
I’m not sure why, and how it gets like this. But I can’t stand another day of it. So, I’m going to put my computer away, take a deep breath and find some peace inside of me.
Once I have that, I’ll be able to create some peace around me.
