COFFEE CHAT: TICK-TOCK, THE TIME IS FLYING….

books-fairytales-may-16-shapedGood morning, bloggers!  I’m having my first cup of coffee while chatting today…please join me, and also check out Christine’s Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts.

  • A couple of weeks ago, I received a jury summons for this week.  I was annoyed, but I thought it would be the usual calling in at night and being told to call again the next evening.  Well, not so much.  I was supposed to appear at 8:30 yesterday!  And I had plans yesterday…and today.  So I stayed on the line and went through the menu…finding the one where I could postpone it for up to nine months.  So I did.  What a relief!
  • I went ahead with my massage and hair styling yesterday at my daughter’s salon.  She put a little more of the silver on my hair, with the dark low lights.  She took a photo of the back when she was finished.   I was ready to change from being a redhead for all these years…

  • Today I sign my tax forms and the accountant files them.
  • Yesterday I did some changes with my lamps.  I had a rather chunky lamp on my rolltop desk, in my office nook, and I decided (finally) that it was too big…so I switched things around, with that lamp ending out behind the sofa…

  • My smaller lamp now sits atop the desk….

  • I am determined to make additional changes in my lifestyle, including more exercise.  I have that stationary bike for the days that are rainy…and I guess I can’t seriously believe that changing lamps and furniture around counts as exercise!  So move over Minnie, I’m coming in!

  • I hope to read a lot today…until I have to leave to sign the tax forms, which can be late afternoon.
  • It’s Thursday, and I love the lineup on nighttime TV!  TGIT!
  • But why do the weeks fly by?  I really haven’t managed to accomplish a lot, although I have finished two books so far.  But seriously?
  • In a little over a month (April 1), we’ll be headed to Cayucos for my daughter’s beach wedding…and before then, I have to find an outfit.  I hate clothes shopping…but I guess it must be done.
  • At least I’ve reserved my hotel room for two nights.  We’ll head up on Friday, stay the night, and the wedding will be at 1:00 in the afternoon.  Then dinner, a bonfire on the beach, and the next day…home.  The reception will be back here, at my daughter’s new brother-in-law’s home.  Since it’s her second marriage, I have had little to do with the arrangements…and that’s fine by me.  I can be a guest and enjoy the party.   Plus, the in-laws have bigger houses…LOL.
  • Speaking of time, we’ll be going to daylight savings in March!  When did it stop being in April?
  • So…tick-tock.

And these are my thoughts for this Thursday.  Enjoy the rest of the week…and come on by and chat!

    • Thanks, Emma, I definitely did not want to miss the hair appointment.

      I served on a jury once, in 1980, which lasted for three weeks. Ever since I’ve gotten the kind of summons that ended up with me on stand-by, calling every night.

      If I had gone in yesterday, chances are I wouldn’t have been picked for a jury. I would have probably had to wait around all day. That would be good for reading, though.

  1. Yes I have a wedding to attend in March and I keep thinking I need to get something to wear. I had one foray but didn’t see anything. And… I have nothing in my wardrobe that would suffice, so feeling the pain you have because i have it too!!

    • Oh, yes, I keep looking at what I have in my closet, hoping something will work…but it won’t. I have to check my shoes, too, as I wear either boots or sandals, depending on the weather. I might have some pumps that I’ve worn once (for another wedding!). LOL.

      Thanks for stopping by, Kathryn, and I’ll send good thoughts your way, too.
