Good morning, Tuesday

At approx. 08:00, the day ahead looks easy. For those keeping score, this will be a “nothing” day sandwiched, as all “nothing” days are, between two “something” days. Yesterday saw me working through quite a few chores, and tomorrow will be pretty busy, too. Today will have me resting from the former while saving my strength for the later. Ordering my days like this seems to be working quite well.

One thing on today’s agenda will be a serious siesta. Last night’s sleep was very short, so a good nap will be called for to catch up on what was missed.

Hope we all have a great day! I’ll check back with you later.

Good night, Monday

All things considered, this has been a pretty good day in the Roscoe-verse. The chores that I had set for myself (and the one Sylvia gave me) were all accomplished smoothly and without any problems. No major surprises came my way, I’m glad to say.

Much less time was spent on the Internet than is usually the case, and that’s good. Spare time between chores was spent between the covers of a good book: Robert E. Howard’s The People of the Black Circle, one of his earlier Conan the Barbarian stories. I didn’t have time to finish this novella today, but I’m deeply into it and enjoying the read tremendously.

Hopefully I’ll get to enjoy a good night’s sleep, and hopefully you will, too. I’ll check back with you tomorrow.

Good morning, Monday

With my first cup of coffee at 06:00. The fog of last night’s sleep is slowly lifting. and the memory of last night’s vivid dream is fading.

Boy oh boy, the danger of eating a banana before bedtime was brought home to me last night. You’ve heard that, haven’t you? It is said that eating a banana shortly before falling asleep will increase the chances of having wild dreams. Last night I did, and it surely did. What a wacky one!

I hope the day ahead is free of wackiness. Hope it brings peaceful productivity instead. We’ll see. I’ll get back to you later.

Good night, Sunday

As Sunday’s go, this one has been okay.

A goal set for this day, to spend as much of it as possible indoors under the a/c, was achieved. Yay me! Heh. The only outing was a grocery shopping trip this morning before the really serious heat of the day kicked in. You know it’s hot when the common topic of conversation at the store, among South Texans accustomed to hot summers, is about how darned hot it is.

At just a shade after 21:00 I can feel the sleepiness coming on. So soon I’ll be putting head to pillow.

Hope we all have a comfortable, restful night’s sleep. I’ll check in with you tomorrow, Lord willing.

Good morning and Happy Sunday

Freshly brewed coffee is in my cup, and the South Texas sun is shining brightly.

It’s going to be another hot one, so I’ll be looking for things to do where it’s air conditioned.

Hope your day is safe and comfortable, too. I’ll check back with you later.

Good night, Saturday

At ~ 20;00 the fatigue is becoming noticeable. I was semi-zombied while lectoring at Mass this evening, but I wasn’t the only one. I’ve been treating allergy-like symptoms by mega-dosing with zyrtec. And I heard several folks at Mass with allergy coughs like mine. Wonder what’s in the air?

Watching Village of the Damned on Svengoolie at the moment. Creepy show. I may have seen snippets of it before, but this is my first time seeing the whole thing straight through. Hope it doesn’t give me nightmares tonight.

I hope we all have a good night, and a happy Sunday. I’ll check back with you then.

Good night, Friday

As Fridays go, you’ve been very good to me. And I appreciate that.

This has been a quiet, relaxing day; just what I needed; sandwiched as it is between the physically active yesterday and a busy tomorrow.

Other than working on my chess games (I am carrying a bigger load of those now than is normal for me) the most active thing I’ve done today is dinner out at a restaurant with Sylvia.

With a bellyful of good food in my system, sleep should come easily tonight. As a matter of fact, I can almost feel the tryptophan kicking in right now. And that bed over against the wall is looking mighty inviting.

Good night, everyone. I’ll get back to you tomorrow.

Good morning, RED Friday

Today will be a quiet, restful day in the Roscoe-verse. And I WILL be wearing red today in honor of all our troops deployed.

Hope you all have a really wonderful day. I’ll check back with you later.

Good night, Thursday.

Feeling tired but feeling better; that pretty much sums up my condition tonight.

In spite of this heat wave I did manage to get in some exercise today. Thank God! The two-mile walk to my barber shop and back home went well. It went much better than it otherwise would have because I used my walking stick. The walking stick forces me to walk with better posture and with a measured, sensible stride. Without it my form tends to get sloppy and I tire more easily.

And it was good to make it to Noon Mass today. Especially with a good haircut.

Of course, all this exercise today means that tomorrow will have to be quiet, with minimal physical activity. I can deal with that. Work day, followed by rest day, followed by work day, etc. If I can stagger my days like that we’ll be fine.

Now at ~20:30 I can feel the drowsiness starting to build up to a serious level, so I’d better sign off. I’ll get back to you tomorrow, folks.

Good morning and Happy Thursday!

Well, I guess I should be careful what I wish for. Recently I’ve been griping about how boring things have become and how quiet my schedule has been. Huh! This morning’s email brought me a schedule of Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree Fallouts and Honor Guard activities from September through December. Good Lord, am I going to be busy!?!

Today is going to be busier than normal, too. Before the serious heat of the day kicks in I’ll be hiking over to my barber shop for a haircut, then I’ll be attending Noon Mass at the neighborhood Parish Church. Today is a Holy Day of Obligation – The Assumption of Mary.

Now I had better get busy. I’ll check back with you later.
