In Anticipation

                                                                            Everyday is a brand new day,
                                                                            everyday is a journey.

Calmly we look behind us, on joys and sorrows past,
  We know that all is mercy now, and shall be well at last;
  Calmly we look before us,--we fear no future ill,
  Enough for safety and for peace, if Thou art with us still.

Having spent the morning doing laundry, I wondered how I veered off course so much. I know, it's called laziness. I've always held dear to doing my laundry the minute a load was available. No, I wasn't going to spend my day doing load after load. What am I doing this morning? Laundry. Oh, we so easily fall off our own pedestal. 

I've been feeling lazy in the mornings, not wanting to get up, but stay in bed. I tell myself, my legs are hurting so it's okay, but I know I'm just avoiding the chores. Not only have I fallen behind on laundry, but in my car are boxes that need to be mailed out, more stuff brought in and a bag of yarn not delivered to one of the ladies. Heaven forbid if I ever have to give someone a ride, they would have to sit on top of all this stuff. 

Yesterday, I had for lunch at work a salad made with all ingredients from the Farmers Market, except the dressing. Even the hard boiled eggs that I sliced into it were from the chickens on the farm. it was simply delicious. I find myself waiting in anticipation for tomorrow's shopping day. I really wish I could live like this always, having my own garden and growing my own veggies. 

I'm so done with living in the city. I look forward to the time when I can live among the cornfields. Isn't that silly? You know what isn't silly? I won the coloring contest! I'm sure it was just a raffle, because if you would have seen the other  contestant's entries, you would have thought I shouldn't have won. I haven't gotten my prize yet, but as soon as I do, I'll share with all of you.

Have a blessed day everyone.
