Time Got Away From Me


Maddy Jean and Jodie Belle

You know it's been a wild week when you have to think,
 what day is it ?
That happened to me a moment ago.
Was thinking is it Tuesday or Wednesday.
Nope, it's Thursday.
That's the kind of world I live in here in the woods.
 
I'm in my own world I guess.
This month I have nothing on my calender.
No appointments to stress me out.
Not like a while ago.
 
I did this on purpose.
I'm taking October off.
I'm sitting in my woods.
Reading a few books.
(four so far)
Watching the girls play in the yard.
 
There isn't much I can do about getting older.
Just look in the mirror and ask, who is that ?
Cause I'm still, mentally, that young gal.
 
Only reality does remind me when it can.
Not this month. Nope, it's mine.
 
The weather has been purrfect this late Summer and Fall.
I sit out back watching my world.
Living in the woods is marvelous for me.
I listen to the sounds.
Watch the beauty of it all.
 
To someone else, it would be nothing.
To me, it's my soul.
 
My days of sitting outside are to an end.
At least for now.
The colder cloudy days have finally arrived.
They got lost and gave me those extra sunny ones.
Not at all usual for my part of the woods.
 
So, with the clouds will come the rain.
I'll be inside enjoying a few things while
remembering my extended stay in the woods.
 
Funny how it's the simple things that bring such joy.
 
This getting older though, I could do without that.

I'm glad you're taking October for your Self. With all that's gone on, and all that still lies ahead, you most assuredly deserve (and I'm sure, need) it.

Hugs and Light to you all.

Your October break sounds wonderful!

And it's always great to keep and feel young at heart!

Take care

I have to know what day it is, because heaven forbid I should miss the weekly phone call to my mother!!! Although it is on Sunday, same as church! And I might be reading a lot, but there are still some TV shows I like to watch....
What have you been reading??

Oh, how fortunate you are to live in the woods. I love to be out among the trees and the quiet. Enjoy your time in the woods, watching the girls and reading. Hugs

so true. You always say such wise things. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
