Wonderful, wonderful, day. Just so quiet. I just love to listen to the quiet. It always has a message. Today's was just a wisp of thankfulness. Thankful for living in a place that is quiet. Thankful for being able to enjoy the quiet. The quiet is invaded by the sounds of children in the street, but happy children so it's not really an invasion. They are just there. The quiet of today is wrapped in dark and angry looking clouds that just might give us a sprinkle or two. Or NOT.
Today I feel good. Been under the weather for a couple of days. Woke up Thurdsday Morn at 4AM just soak and wet from sweat. Thank goodness for a King size bed, so I just got up, walked around to the other side, and went back to sleep Changed the sheets when I got up later in the day and thought well, I'm feeling better so it was just a thingy. So I went to the movie to see "Soul Men" which was Bernie Mack's last movie. I did not realize that it was also Isaac Hayes last movie. Got a good dose of the belly laughs. So it was enjoyable. I got to the movie about In the Woodlands about 3 PM and there were at least 100 girls with pillows, blankets, checkers, etc in lines on the floor waiting for the midnight opening of "TwiLight".The movie added two more auditoriums for the Midnight showing for a total of four showings. When I left at 6 PM there must have been a thousand girls and maybe two boys to see that movie. I never did do that kind of stuff. Well we did not have blockbusters when I was a kid. We had "The Durango Kid", Roy Rodgers, Gene Autrey, Hoppalong Cassidy, and those awful kissy movies. YUK. Tickets were 9 cents and popcorn was 5 cents and so were soda pops. Damned that was a long time ago. Come to think of it might near 60 years ago. Hell no wonder I don't feel so good sometimes. Anyway I got home and was just sweating up a good runoff so I just settled in, watched some TV, slefpt, went to bed, slept a lot more, got up about 3 pm. Stayed home all day Friday and Saturday. Feel so much better now. Just can't rush it like I used to back in the day. But I'm so thankful that I was only out of kelter for a couple of three days.
So, now I'm just back to listening to music and the quiet of the day. Oh, and I might add, enjoying the musice in a quiet sober kind of day. See ya.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Oh darlin' I'm glad you are feeling better.
I have 10 hot flashes a night!
Of course probably for different reasons than the ones you just described ;)

Prayer Girl did have a boxer puppy on her blog. Such a doll. Thanks for letting me know.

"Such a doll." Did Trailboss mean me or the boxer puppy? -grin-

Sometimes I can really tell that I'm no longer young, but I am staying as "young at heart" as I can.

Glad you're feeling better.

I love the "quiet" too - peaceful and serene.
