It's after 8pm and as I sit here listening to the wind blow and the thunder rumble, I wonder where the day got away to. I've not accomplished anything. Well, nothing significant anyway. Maybe it's because I didn't make a list of things to do this morning.
Yesterday's list everything was done but a trip to Michael's. I just didn't feel like driving there. I need to pick up a few other things, too. Nothing I can't live without. I have plenty of food and I know the weekend menu. So, maybe just chilling is okay.
I have one baby bootie to finish. A book I'm almost done reading. A book I need to finish editing. An afghan to finish weaving. I have a couple books for Bible studies to delve into and as always The Lupus Encyclopedia. Not to mention a novel to finish and a short story to write. I have plenty to do. Today I really don't care.
I'm tired of the Confederate flag issue. Time to grow up people. I'm tired of the same sex marriage issue. It's done, move on. Both are petty little things. (Although I admit huge for those wishing to marry in a same sex relationship). They are not the issue people should be inflamed over.
The bigger issues are poverty, the fact we have Veterans sleeping on the streets, lack of adequate health care...Obama Care did nothing for those without income or below poverty level income. People in this country are starving. Jobs are still being sent overseas where people work in horrid conditions for little pay. Children in third world nations are still being forced to work from a young age under horrid conditions. We need to keep these things in mind. Help a friend, a neighbor, even a stranger. My thoughts are there but for the grace of God go I.
The thunder is one continuous roar. There is no let up and the rains are pouring. It's good to be inside. While most days I don't miss television, today would be a good day to have it for background noise. I will live. I'm learning to enjoy a much simpler life style. Staying home, working on my projects, going for a walk or swim those are the things which make my day.
So for now, I'm just going to dive into one of the books I have and read until bedtime.
