    Thanks for your comment on my blog. My husband is helpful on the weekends, but has a demanding job with some travel during the week. We only have 1 child left at home, others are in college or out on their own. Many times i feel i just get easily distracted and let time get away from me, so nothing important gets done. I also have the feeling that my days off are well deserved vacation days where I don't want to do anything !

    Hope you have a great day

    I’m still tracking my food and exercise. Still loving life and poetry. I lost weight. Gained a lot of it back, and am trying to lose it again. I hope to start blogging again one of these days.

    The Death Deal
    by Ron Padgett

    Ever since that moment
    when it first occurred
    to me that I would die
    (like everyone on earth!)
    I struggled against
    this eventuality, but
    never thought of
    how I'd die, exactly,
    until around thirty
    I made a mental list:
    hit by car,
    shot in head by random ricochet,
    crushed beneath boulder,
    victim of gas explosion,
    head banged hard in fall from ladder,
    vaporized in plane crash,
    dwindling away with cancer,
    and so on. I tried to think
    of which I'd take
    if given the choice,
    and came up time
    and again with
    He died in his sleep.
    Now that I'm officially old,
    though deep inside not
    old officially or otherwise,
    I'm oddly almost cheered
    by the thought
    that I might find out
    in the not too distant future.
    Now for lunch

    Here's another one!

    Self-Portrait
    Mary Oliver

    I wish I was twenty and in love with life
    and still full of beans.

    Onward, old legs!
    There are the long, pale dunes; on the other side
    the roses are blooming and finding their labor
    no adversity to the spirit.

    Upward, old legs! There are the roses, and there is the sea
    shining like a song, like a body
    I want to touch

    though I'm not twenty
    and won't be again but ah! seventy. And still
    in love with life. And still
    full of beans.
