Sunday Morning

Sunday morning;  I was awakened by the sound of a clash. I sat up in bed wondering what in the world that was. The more I listened I realized it was a train changing tracks. There is a set of train tracks near  my home. Since I have been here I have seen a red engine car pulling behind it only one other section. The tracks were being repaired so maybe there will be a bigger train now. I heard the whistle blow and I thought instantly back to my brother Al and how he was scared to death of trains.

When we were kids and our parents were stopped at a passing train, Al would literally scream from fear when the whistles blew. When I took care of him so many years later, instead of screams I noticed he was trying to count how many cars were passing by. He certainly did change in the fear area.

I put the coffee pot on and took a shower. I answered some emails and played my addicting game, Candy Crush Saga. Now I am eating my very favorite breakfast in the world. Bacon, eggs, toast with pumpkin butter and coffee along with milk. Yummy. I am listening to Dr. Charles Stanley and printing off some forms I will need tomorrow when I go to Bowling Green.

I have to go to Wal-Mart so I am making my little list. At my age, if I don’t make a list, I don’t get all I need. Do you have to do that too? It doesn’t matter what I am going to the store for, I need my list. I tried to deny my forgetfulness, but then got too upset with myself for going home and forgetting the main thing I went to the store for.

It has been raining here for a few days. Today is over cast and 68 outside with  no sprinkles yet. One of the trees out front is turning red from fall. It is so pretty. Right by my front windows is a big pine tree. I was happy to see that as now I know I will see green this winter. Alright then, I have chatted with you, now I must finish my breakfast before it turns cold. What do you have to share with me this morning?

  1. This morning, I mistaken the timing I wake up. I thought I wake up at 10am but only to find out to wake up at 11:50am. In my dream, the clock shows 10am. After I wake up, my head seems sleepy. Until evening, then I am fully awake to return to the reality.



  2. We have tracks near our house as well but the city is building bridges over them. We are on the Cajon Pass corridor, one of the busiest train routes in the country. Soon there will be no more whistles…


  3. We went on a train ride yesterday! It was an old-fashioned train car, with posters and pictures from World War II on the walls. We rode for about 2 1/2 hours through the northern part of our state, where there is lots of beautiful fall color. A completely enjoyable way to spend the afternoon on a beautiful October day 🙂


    • Oh how I wish I could have taken that ride with you. I love the rocking of the train as it goes down the track. A great way to meet new people too, and the view. All sorts of views. I rode in a train that had a glass car and every time we went through the mountains, it took my breath away at the beauty

  4. I was stopped by a train this morning on my way to work. Most people consider that a frustration but I enjoy it. Watching a train go by is like watching a mobile art show. Some of the vandalizers are really talented.
