Standing in my bubble
I’m able to look around
I see where I am now
I see where I have gone
Mistakes are bound to happen
Perfection can’t be got
I turn the chapters over
I can see I’ve done a lot
Life is meant for living
Life can’t be lived through blur
 As above, so below
Filled with all our words.

Weekend Don’t Go Away

I unexpectedly received a call from my girlfriend whom I had visited last weekend. She invited me to come for an overnight, since her husband had to work. I readily agreed. We didn’t really have anything planned. We watched the movies, Left Behind. They were pretty good and gave a person something to think about.

We ate laid-back meals; which are some of my favorites. I woke this morning thinking Santa Claus had been there overnight. I was making myself a fresh cup of coffee, when I spotted a familiar, white box, that I hadn’t seen in my own home for way too long.

I carefully opened it with filled lungs, ready to take in the aroma. My eyes widened as I looked into a box full of beautiful, colorful donuts. Oh my, how can I resist?

I closed the box, immediately my brain scrambling, trying to work out a way to indulge in one of these with my breakfast. Each of those delicacies were screaming sugar and calories. I could barely resist. I did eat my 2 scrambled eggs and chose a cake donut with clear glaze and then allowed myself half of it. Wow, oh wow, was that ever tasty.

I then came home. I always hate the entrance of my front door. It yells quietness. After spending the weekend with lots of chatter, silence is not always a nice greeting. By now, I am back in my habitat. I have showered for work tomorrow. I have picked out my clothes. I  know what I am packing for my lunch. I am set for the evening and following day.

I took a few photos while I was visiting and I am posting for you to see. My girlfriend was dog sitting for her daughter. The little dark one is my girlfriends. The little light-colored one is her daughters.
