Hurrying home…

I was in a hurry to get home.  I had done enough chores earlier in the day that I had earned my trip out for a bite to eat and some shopping.  That’s how my mind works.  And the shopping had been successful.  The success of a trip depends on whether I had gotten a bargain or not, and I had.  So I was looking forward to seeing my purchases in my new/old house, to see if they would work as I thought they would.  That I was seeing a pretty sunset developing as I drove home put me in a quandary.  Stop on the way home or go home and head to the pond in the back for a photo?  And that’s what I did, headed home, and stopped for a quick iPhone photo at the pond, then drove the block or two home.  And that’s when I discovered that I’d locked myself out.  I’ve been almost doing that for several weeks now, and last night I succeeded.  I was lucky because my aunt and uncle are my neighbors and they have a key, but they also weren’t home.  And as I waited I noticed that the sky was now on fire, I shouldn’t have given up on it so early.  Or better yet even, I could have stopped on the way home after all.  Shoulda, woulda, coulda.  Isn’t that always the way?03-09-19hurryhome

    1. And when I opened the shades this morning I saw the remnants of a fiery sunrise. I didn’t go out because I had too much to accomplish so I guess I’d better hop to it. I just wish that ‘accomplishing’ something didn’t mean that I had to tear everything else apart first…


  1. I can’t wait to see what you will have done in your new home when you are finished making it your own. It surely sounds like you made all the right choices. Have a great day. Oh, it’s 23° here today. Next week up to 50°.
