This is sappy, I know, but I’m not going to delete it. After all, this is a journal of my days. Keep in mind as you read this that I am a very simple person. Small things please me. Accomplishing chores that have been waiting for a long time is the kind of thing that makes me giddy. You might want to stop reading now….
I had one of those very satisfying days that we wish would happen more often. I started the day by feeding the cat and taking a mug of tea to the computer. I love to do the LA Times crossword puzzle at the computer. Since I was there, I thought I’d make the time to blog about last weekend, another couple of satisfying days.
At that point I decided the house wasn’t going to warm up fast enough, so I turned on the heat, and then settled in to clear work off my desk. I have the power of attorney for my mother’s finances, so I waded through her mail, paying bills and organizing those things that would need further attention. Then I did the same for our personal mail and bills. I filed things, and organized the outgoing mail, and created a grocery list for the next four days.
I made a run to the bank, and to the post office, and then I stopped for groceries on the way home. While minestrone soup was on my mind, I got out the recipe and copied it for two friends who had requested it.
I know this sounds dreadfully dull when you read it, but the upshot of it is that I can see the top of the desk. I FEEL more organized, and I’m eager to buzz my way through more of the backlog of chores around the house. I can comfortably leave what is left of the paperwork, knowing that it’s taken care of for the next week or so, and not have to worry that any disasters are waiting to befall us.
Dear Husband needed a ride home tonight. I ended my paperwork session to go and collect him. The truck needs repairs to pass it’s safety testing, so we left it with our favorite repair guys. They’ll work on it first thing tomorrow and try to have it ready for him during the day.
We worked on dinner together, went over our schedules for this month, and now have the chance to sit back and relax. It was a satisfying day, and I hope tomorrow is just as satisfying!

  1. I know those kind of days Buffy…and they ARE very satisfying days. Gosh, they feel good. They are the kind that keep you going….and thank GOD for them. Those little organizing, satisfying days are often the best days. If we have several of those in a row…suddenly our lives are running a little smoother and stress-free; and isn’t that what we’re all striving for? I hope you have oodles more of those satisfying days sweetie…. Love, Joy

  2. Amen, Joy! I always know when I post something that you will understand my intent, even if my words are not clear. We’ll have to adopt you into our clan so that you can be more than a sister of my heart. *S* I hope you’re having a great Fall!
