[it’s a quiet day]

I slept in, had breakfast, cleaned some, and about to go get some ice-cream.

I am glad I’ve got this day “off” – even though every Saturday is a day off work as well as Sunday, for the last several months, even on days off I had something going on.

So today, even though my friends are getting together to play mafia, I am home alone with my cat, enjoying a time when I don’t have to communicate verbally.

A lot of my friends think I need to be helped, but in reality, all I need is a day to recharge and then I can once again be reintroduced to community, being able to actually ENJOY being with other people.

I like being with people. They are interesting to observe and I like to learn from them – and about them.

There are days though when I need rest from observing the others and enjoy myself. It sounds weird, I know. But I do like to go for walks, with a movie soundtrack playing in my headphones (I love good soundtracks…), and just think about what I have learned / observed in between of my “days off.”

If you’re looking for some “a-ha!” moment in this post, there’s none. I just wanted to write. I’ve been wanting to write for a long time but every time I sat down with my laptop and clicked “Add New Post”… there were so many unprocessed thoughts in my brain that I simply had no idea where to start.

So I started here.

In a quiet place.

On a day off.

  • it’s a quiet day. It’s been a quiet blog. πŸ™‚ But not without some quiet prayers. We all need these days lil sis. I had one yesterday. I drove a little over 2 hours to have lunch with my friend since college. Almost 40 years now. I listened to Stryper, Disciple, more Stryper, and just enjoyed being alone. Except for my refreshing lunch. I am way overdue for a vacation and have to take these minis to compensate. Write when you feel like it. I will be waiting. love ya!

    • Yeah, sorry for falling out from the radar…

      Oh! You listen to Disciple?! You were cool before, but now you’ve escalated even higher in my eyes πŸ˜€ Hahaha.

      I keep thinking of you every time I walk by a bicycle selling store πŸ™‚ I am hoping to get myself a bike sometime – since my new Church building will be so close, I might as well ride there πŸ™‚ And I’ve got good scenery a short ride away from my house… so we’ll see.

      • Disciple’s latest, “O God Save Us All,” is an excellent CD. I have been thinking of getting Horseshoes and Handgrenades but haven’t pulled the plug yet. Hope you can get that bike. It would be great for you to enjoy.

        • I haven’t heard their latest, but I enjoyed previous albums.

          It so happened that I was reading a book as I listened to Disciple’s first album and because I did not have anything else to listen to (too lazy to burn another CD), this album became my soundtrack for that book… It was a detective story and every time I hear their songs, I get transported mentally into that book.

    I like it when it is quiet. Too much bustle and and noise wears me out.
