I remember looking at my calendar last week and seeing each square filled some form of activity for the next couple weeks. All the events to come were to be joyous ones... my son's wedding, visits from my other children, a trip to visit and spend fun time with my grand kids, and so on. Yet still I knew that for the next couple of weeks my usual normal routine life would be somewhat of a disarray. I would not be able to get up leisurely each morning around 6:30 or 7:00 am... enjoy the sunrise with Winston while I drank that first cup of coffee. I would also not have the few hours each morning to read and reply to the many blogs that I enjoy keeping up with so much as well as keeping my own writings up to date.
I would have to accept the fact that many of my everyday activities would fall by the wayside for a bit. I am a creature of habit and sometime such things as this can drive me crazy. Yet I also know that a bit of a change now and then is good for the soul. It mixes things up a bit and allows you to not become too stagnant in life.
Soon I will be back to normal... whatever that really is. So for those of you whose blogs I have not visited in a bit... please be patient with me... I am trying to make the rounds.... And sometimes a simple read is all I can do.
And to be honest... I wouldn't trade a little October time with my grand kids for anything. Trips to pumpkin patches and rolling around in the colorful fallen leaves of autumn are just too much fun...
