So what should I do this afternoon?
study my Russian lesson?
expand my online book inventory?
repot a thirsty “Wandering Jew?”
walk in the garden,
read a novel
–write a poem?
I could get lost on google…
visit friends abroad…who probably are sleeping now,
giving their blogs a rest.
sit here and daydream?
fix something for dinner…
clean the garage?
get out my zillions of beads
and all of their appurtenances thereto
to borrow a legal phrase
ah, the latter may be the winner
of my afternoon busywork lottery
with granddaughter birthdays approaching
a tiny bit of skill, strong thread and needles
my treasure trove of baubles and beads…
crystals shining of light of their own
so here I sit, writing a poem
about shiny trinkets and glistening orbs
…inviting a nudge from the beading-muse.

thank you, glad to hear from you
That was fun reading. I hope you did whatever would give you the most pleasure.
always. Actually went outside and sat around with my cat Peggy. I just turned 83 (good lord!) so think I get to goof off…which I do anyway, age is a good excuse. Tomorrow I take my sister-in-law to doctor, she is 97 (SIL, not the doctor.) 🙂
I’m glad you sat with your cat. Nice going! You are amazing and so very interesting. Love reading your posts!
thanks Anne, sometimes they do get a bit whacko I admit. I appreciate your comments!

Sweet, sweet poetry. The little decisions that we face daily 🙂
Perhaps you would share the pictures of the trinket that you are making for your granddaughter.
thanks for asking…yes, I will share the pictures. I have three granddaughters in the next month.
Did quite a lot in the process. 😉 Hugs!
a lot of playing on the computer 😉

“Appurtenances” Had to look that one up. Interesting word, but I’m sure I won’t be using it in a sentence very soon! Thanks for the lovely poetry!
once I was our council clerk, and part of m duties was to read out loud endless proposed city ordinances. “Appurtances to” was one of my favorite legal phrases. I admit I had to check the meaning and spelling of the word before using it here.. .:-)
