Oldiesmann: Reader's Digest thinks I'm a senior citizen now apparently. I got a subscription offer in the mail saying they'd approved a "special seniors discount" for me

Good morning everyone.

Sure didn't want to get up but morning is slipping away .Didn't get THAT job done yesterday  , other chores grabbed me first. So after THAT job is done need to sew for a bit

Lloyd, good to see your post.

Gloria, hope you feel better soon.

Shirley, now I am humming.......day is done.............gone the sun ..from the hills from the sky.........all is well..

Better get a move on it.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

...your quote: " We'll see what the day brings. I think that might be a song for " sound of Music."
or Dinah Washington's " What a Difference a Day Makes."

At last some sun!  That might help elevate the mood around here.  And the fact that I finally got a good night's sleep helps, too.

A few household chores to do today since I was a recliner radish (acccording to Callie) yesterday.  I was supposed to go for my annual eye exam but I canceled and I can't say I'm sorry.  I'll reschedule for a later date.

Take care, All.

AMY, you forgot the lake....

Day is done,
Gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hill, from the sky.

All is well, safely rest. God is nigh!

There's only one lake, one hill and one sky in that song because only one Indian is singing it and that's all he can see.  Everyone puts an "s" on those words....unless you were a Girl Scout who learned or sang the song in Indian territory!

I got my bank account up to date so the cops aren't going to come after me.  I think this might be a day for doing "sitty-around" things.  I didn't go to the Farmers Market or the Amish store and I'm not going to do that either.  Maybe the Amish Store tomorrow.  I try to avoid it on Saturday...too busy! 

OK. What's next?

Jane , talking with son in Williamsburg PA on his way to Maine.

We would sing this when our meeting had come to a close...good memories.

Can you tell I am not getting THAT job done. I do have bread on the go but it is such a lovely day I think raking leaves has more promise of getting done than THAT job. :)

Do you ever have times when you've put off things and all of a sudden everything needs to happen on ONE day??!!  I need to clone me for Thursday! At least the knee is better this morning, think I will survive but no dancing a jig just yet.

Gotta shower & wash hair before starting this day. Up a little after 1:00 AM with a problem so did a Google to solve it, back to sleep until after 8:00 am, called my friend I was to meet for lunch on Thurs, we changed plans to suit both of us better & now I'm only concerned with half a dozen other problems. What is life without problems???

Don't know where "Day is Done" came from but kept going through my head so wanted to share.  ;D   Isn't that also the words to Taps?

I didn't get down to the river last night, phone calls kept me busy until dark. I may need to start going down in the morning since the fish won't be around anyway. Used to be so many birds stopping by on their way south, morning is their fav time to visit.

The true story
A general in the Union Army decided that he didn't like the existing boring bugle call that signaled "lights out".

He came up with a new tune and whistled it to his brigade bugler. Together they modified the tune, scribbling the notes on the back of an envelope until they had something that the general liked.

The bugler was ordered to play the tune that night. The song was heard by nearby brigades, who sent their buglers to learn the tune. Before long, this song was the regulation "lights out" signal throughout the Union Army.

Good morning from a chilly, frosted Interior at 9°. I've got a lot scheduled today, along with that roast and loaf of bread I'd listed for earlier. I have plans for Thursday, so I need to get everything done that I've put off.

Amy

so I need to get everything done that I've put off.

LOL Patricia, I managed to do that again today!!! Bread did get made...but no pine needles picked up...maybe tomorrow???

"Anchorage is still a few days away from its average first measurable snowfall, while Fairbanks is already several weeks behind, says climatologist Brian Brettschneider."

Looking out my window, I see some of those white spots falling from that sky! 🤷‍♀️

Amy, I didn't get any of that done!

JaneS

I'm off to the haystack!  I didn't get a lot that was planned done but I did some stuff that wasn't planned.  I hope that counts in my favor.

I wish you all a peaceful nights sleep and a happy, healthy and fruitful tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!
