A Country Day in My Life
Today was a pretty normal day in my country living in NE Missouri. Enjoying the warmer weather and waiting for it to get warmer. Plans for spring things are getting anxious on my mind.
Today I started as usual with breakfast and watching news programs, with my little dogs all around. After that I got at exercise down in my little corner of the basement set up for exercise and yoga time. I lit my candles and turned on my Zen CD. Very relaxing, calming time with stretches and moves to keep me strong.
One needs strength at any age, but I am happy to say that I am pretty strong and I will soon be 70. I may only be doing quilting or bread baking, but also do other things continually through the day and need the energy and strength for them.
Later morning after making some business phone calls, I pinned my binding from the back on my current quilt project, to get at hand stitching it tomorrow. I like doing steps in the process and enjoying the time with it. It makes the project feel like it really belongs to me because I have put lots into it. The same goes with yoga, being in the moment and giving it my time, doing steps to go through my routine.
After a delivery from FED EX, and a short visit with the driver, no cookies for her today, but nice to get to know these delivery people. Lots of my shopping is done online so I don't have to drive the twenty miles to the nearest large town, only 18,000 or the 45 miles to the next town of 40,000. I go there sometimes, but enjoy my time at home in the country doing my needed things and also the many things I like to do.
Next was walking with my dogs, good exercise also, lunch with wonderful Brie and crackers and fruits and water. Plans for dinner later by making a salad and thawing the pork chops. Bread was made yesterday.
Another phone call to get insurance straightened out before doing some reading while laundry is being washed as are dishes. Nice to lay down and rest a bit , yes , with my little dogs. Outside again for a short walk in the woods. Dinner and news time again.
Visiting with my husband before working on some knitting.
My country home and life fills my heart with joy.
