The Sunshine Factor

where sunshine is a way of life


NaPoWriMo #18


Clean and polish

vaccuum and dust

why can’t I do it once and for all?

No, this is a regular occurrence


Oh, but nature is like that too

God in his artistic intelligence

created seasons and time

the tide going in and out

the moon and sun moving on their courses


I enjoy his artwork

and I also enjoy the results of my housecleaning

I guess all is well with cycles, seasons, and duties


Hope you are enjoying the fruits of your labor today!  🙂

Such a Wonderful Thing is the Moon

Do you remember the children’s book “Goodnight Moon” ??

The full moon that I saw in the sky on my way home from work tonight was something very awesome.  It would have been a good moon to pattern a storybook picture after.

The moon had a haze around it — or shall I say, it looked like it was covered with see-through white gauze.   So totally serene!

Seeing the moon tonight made me wonder how many beauties of nature I miss each day or evening by being so busy that I may not want to take 30 extra seconds to stop what I’m doing and just rest and enjoy the view.  Or enjoy the people I am with.  Or just enjoy the state of I’m here.  I exist.  I can just BE.

Well, there’s at least one thing I don’t take for granted:  my readers and fellow bloggers.  To you all I say, “Goodnight, dear ones!”

I Love Thursdays!

Thursday is the day in the week that I have off from work (in addition to weekends).  I love to sleep in if I am able.  (I get up so early during the week, that 7:30 is sleeping in for me!)  Then I can take a long walk outside where I never get bored, since it seems there is always something new to see.  (When I walk from 4:30-5 a.m., although my neighborhood is safe, dark is dark and you can’t see a whole lot other than the blanket of stars and sometimes the moon in the sky.)

I can go to lunch with a friend or dine out alone with a handy book or Kindle to keep me company.  I usually manage to get my groceries, gas, and cash for the week, when everything is less crowded and lines are not long.

I  squeeze in some writing time, which is like an appealing reward coming my way.  I lose all track of time (and sometimes appetite) when I write, and it’s a wonderful way to while away some hours.

I  meet with friends on that day, too, so the smile on my face is in place the whole day.

I  love my day job and appreciate having it, but once in awhile it would be fun to not have to go to work – and spend my time like I do on Thursdays.

What is your favorite day of the week, and why?
