Today marks the 2000th time I have sat down to share my thoughts with anyone who will read them. Back to the main purpose of Musings: So that my grandchildren will know more about me as they grow up and can assimilate what I have written.
That first blog on May 27, 2004 concerned a night of good sleep after several nights of not sleeping because of the pain in my leg. Well, not much has changed--still having trouble sleeping because of the pain in my legs. Wonder when I am going to do something about those knees? Although the pain I am now having is from a different cause--it still affords me the opportunity to be up at 11:30, 2:00, 4:00, 5:30, 6:30 and finally out of bed at 7:30. Who said growing old was fun!!!!
Not to have this blog totally negative, my life in Nashville is wonderful and I love it. EXCEPT for the heat wave we are suffering now--I might as well be in Texas--my toes are generally in the house these days.
I am trying to read Gone with the Wind again--it is the summer book for our club. I am on chapter 17; maybe if I read three chapters a day, I can finish it next year. Wow is it long! However, I have not gotten the feeling I often do with long books that it needed lots of editing. Mitchell tells her story well, keeps the reader moving and inserts pertinent history very well.. I am enjoying it. I am longing for a REALLY GOOD book to round out the summer. Haven't found one yet.
Nothing profound today.
