Yesterday I experienced something I haven't experienced in a very, very long time. Boredom. Absolute boredom. The weather was cool and gloomy. I felt uninspired. I tried gardening but the black flies (or whatever those little pesky bugs are) drove me inside. I couldn't think of anything I wanted to do or anywhere I wanted to go. Usually I love to read but not yesterday. Oh, I was in such a rut! Then I thought, what I'd really love is to be read to. Now, my kids read to me all the time but they aren't quite up to Pride and Prejudice. (Hee, hee) That's what I wanted to hear. So, my wonderful husband indulged me. He sat down on the couch next to me and I closed my eyes while he read. It was really so nice to enjoy a book in this way. And, yes, I think he enjoyed it too. (Liz, Jeff will kill me if you share this with Peter-I can almost hear him making a joke from VT. Likewise for you Steven ;0) Hopefully he'll read a few more chapters to me today!
11/8/09 Crazy warm temperatures. 64 degrees today, bright and sunny. I'll take it! 10/1/09 Cold and rainy. 9/5/09 We have been having a beautiful stretch of sunny weather. Mornings are cool. Saw a praying mantis today! 8/5/09 Cool mornings and beautiful sunshine here in the Adirondacks! 5/14/09 The wind is howling outside. Pass on through storm to make way for the sun tomorrow! 5/13/09 What a glorious day! Warm, clear blue sky and creek full of tadpoles! 4/9/09 Full moon tonight and, could it be, a clear sky?! Yes! 4/1/09 We had an April Fools Day joke played on us today-the forecast was for sun and warmth and instead it was cloudy, windy and cool. The crocuses are now in bloom! 3/27/09 Woke up to the glorious sound of birds chirping. Jays, cardinals and robins are out in abundance. 2 bunnies made an appearance this evening. A beautiful sunny, spring day. 3/26/09 I've started to clean out the garden beds. We've had days of sun and are now getting a spring rain. The daffodils are coming up! 3/10/09 We had a squirrel and a woodpecker at the bird feeder today. The squirrel also loved a jar of peanut butter we left out.
