Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi, Merry Mae and me as we get down to busy-ness and create our masterpieces. You can leave your poem in the comments or post on your own blog and leave a comment here so we know where to find you. Use the topic, or choose another; the object is to have fun and make our heads think!
Last week was full of busy days for me. There was visiting, and being visited, and Halloween, and phone calls upon phone calls, and meetings, and all the usual stuff that a person has to do to keep a house running. I feel like I accomplished quite a bit, which was good, but it was a huge relief to make it to the oasis of the weekend, and then to check the calendar for next week and see nothing planned.
That's not to say I'll be doing nothing. We couldn't have our family Thanksgiving dinner back in October because my husband and I were recovering from colds and didn't want to risk giving our germs to our elderly mothers (or anyone else, for that matter). So our replacement Thanksgiving will be this Sunday, and that will involve some extra housecleaning this week. But other than that, it will be quiet here. There will be time to read and make Christmas ornaments for a second craft sale and go for some walks.
These were my thoughts when I was contemplating "busy days" for Poetry Monday.
No Offense But I'm Not Answering The Doorbell This Week
Days that are full have their own special charm:
Completing my Do list as long as my arm ...
Visiting special folks too long unseen ...
Getting through meetings or errands routine ...
But days that are quiet are what I live for;
No drama, no worry (both things I abhor).
Some think it is boring, but I disagree;
My life's not for them but it's perfect for me.
Wishing you a week that's just as busy or quiet as you like it :)
