One minute things are going along like a fine summer day, the skies are blue, the sun is shinning and my cucumbers are coming up gang busters. Each day I wake with anticipating of the lazy nothingness that comes along with the unplanned randomness of a hot summer afternoon.
I check the listing for the dollar theater, make sure I have plenty of ice coffee on hand and breath. I pick cucumbers, walk the dog and read a blog or two.
I love summer!
Sometimes in all the wonderful lazy randomness, life erupts!
The door to hell opens wide and swallows up your life, well maybe the door to hell is to strong a description, maybe it should be more like the door to Jerry Springer's green room on “Who’s your Baby Daddy” day.
And then I look around and I wonder what happen to my calm peaceful life and my lazy summer randomness.
Rest assured that even as life has been erupting and the chaos was whirling I had my priorities in order. I took time each day for my morning visit to my sweet cucumbers babies, are y’all tired of hearing about my cucumber babies????
and my afternoon ice coffee
Now let me just say that as much as I would love to make a daily trip to Starbucks, this would be massively budget prohibitive, I have been know to on occasion (all the time really) save my Starbucks cup and use it over and over again to improve my afternoon ice coffee experience. It can at least look like the real thing. Sad but true!!
Anyway, I am glad to say that life has settled back down to normal (is there really such a thing as normal life???)and I look forward to being able to return to my regular bloggy self very soon.
Thanks 2 Thinks for giving me a shout out!!! and no I have not fallen off the face of the earth, been abducted by aliens or lapsed into peri-menopausal comma.
Although being abducted by aliens might be a nice break, but they would probably want me to do laundry and cook dinner!
