Sunny Sunday Morning

February 5th, 2012

Charles is off to the Annual General Meeting at the Church, - I have been coughing all night long, and besides have given up on our supposedly ecumenical ministery which has been taken over by a group of the highly advanced and politically inspired followers of the  Emerging Church, - those who have a tenuous hold on religion by following "Jesus, the political activist", rather than "Jesus, the Son of God".  

I sit here in the sunshine, thankful for the blue sky, the lovely nip in the air as I went to open the gates for Charles to drive out, the little stub of Hellebore I found as my hand swept away the hard, icy snow that covered it, the thoughts of a second, silent cup of coffee!!

Yesterday I finally got the clock on the DVD to stop flashing its little green eyes at us, and figured out how to record straight from the TV - I know this should be easy, but we have made some changes in equipment, and I find that Occam's Razor is the rule to follow when you are trying to read foreign instructions, - if you can just pick the simple basics out of all the warnings and minute detail.  Being somewhat technically challenged this all gave me a really good feeling......

There are so many English shows whose delightful accents pass through my ears and into my brain without being translated, and it will be nice to record these shows and be able to pause them and catch just exactly what the Inspector was saying when he arrested that rummy character out on the moors!!!!!

I am going now to put on some Handel and surround myself with music as I sip my coffee, and then perhaps I will clean out the week's leftovers from the fridge.

Or maybe I'll just read a book!!!!

The companionship of a long marriage is good, but retirement removes some of those [to me] necessary times of lovely solitude.
I hope you have the second cup of coffee surrounded by the majestic sounds of Handel. Do sit and read your book---if the leftovers in the fridge wait another day you can feel really virtuous about consigning them to the garbage!

Sometimes it is rather nice to be alone for a while isn't it? Have a nice day.

I would read a book to enjoy the solitude, hope you did, Hildred...then later Charles can help you clean out the leftovers.

I think reading a book sounds like the best idea. :))

I hope you had the second cup and read the book. Thumbs up to you for deciphering the recording instructions.

Ah, I am sorry about your church. I don't think I'm the only person who long ago gave up on organized religion for the reasons you cite.

and I hope your cold is better by now. But except for those things, your morning sounded quite lovely!

(Any time I figure out something remotely technical in nature, it is an enormous personal triumph!)
