Sunday Situation

I had something very important to write today but it didn't come easy. I was blocked. How did I break that block? Did I persevere, stimulate my creative juices, search for inspiration?  I suppose so, if you would consider procrastination any/all of the above. With this impending deadline breathing down my neck, I proceeded to:
  • check my Facebook updates
  • eat some popcorn
  • change up the music on my Dell jukebox (no, I don't have an iPod and even I can only listen to John Denver for so long)
  • stare at the second paragraph
  • clean out the second drawer of our buffet (found some toffee  from my Christmas stocking)
  • eat a piece of toffee (softens if you suck it a really long time)
  • make a sandwich for tomorrow
  • chat with my daughter on the phone
  • stand at the window and wish for sunshine on my shoulders
  • roll on the floor with Fritz
  • make yet another mug of tea
  • chat with my ex husband on the phone (our version of co-parenting)
  • stand and stretch while singing Perhaps Love.
I finally finished my piece and I think I consumed about a 6,000 calories in the process and stayed up way too late. Oh well, some days are diamonds, and some days are stone.  And if you hadn't already notices,  I definitely listened to way too much John Denver today!

  1. John Denver can fill my day anytime! I've loved his voice and music since I first saw him on The Old Grey Whistle Test, on his first visit to England. Any day listeningt to him is a diamond.

  2. My comment to you has got sidetracked by memories of THE OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST, oh what a wonderful programme back in the day. With whispering Bob Harris. Can still remember hearing Bridge Over troubled water there for the first time.
    Oops and whose blog is this???
