It's been a LONG time since I've slept in
I don't even think my body knows that it's an option, it's so used to slipping out of bed in the wee hours of the morning and moving in a daze for the first hour OR until that first sip of hot coffee hits the taste buds.
But we've been going to bed super late and I think our bodies just finally collapsed. All I know is that it started raining last night and it hasn't stopped yet, and somehow the sound of the raindrops on the window and the roof paired with the exhausted body, made for a sleep in.....until 9:55 am. WOW!
The only reason I got out of bed is because my body started hurting, my sciatica kicked in and it was just painful to lay in bed. So I got up with a big smile on my face and feeling completely refreshed, it's funny how you forget just what a good night's sleep can do for you soul.
So here I am, with my hot cup of coffee and my toast slathered in Homemade Butter. I tell you, I don't think I'll ever again go without homemade butter in my house. Every bite I take transports me back in time, this is like sitting around the kitchen table with my great grandmother, watching her with her Butter Dish, with every bite of the bread she took, the knife would instantly move back to get some more and she would cover every inch of her bread.
At the time I thought "why are you doing that?" but now it's one of those guilty pleasures of mine, sort of like a way to reconnect with her. I will sit on the kitchen table and repeat her actions and smile, it's like I can feel her with me, probably laughing at what I'm doing.
So yesterday I tried to watch Helen of Troy and I did not like it at all. It's weird because I'm a huge fan of movies and series like that but this one, UGH....I didn't even make it through the first disc and have already removed the rest from my Netflix Queue, what a waste of time.
I guess I'll spend a bit today adding more stuff to the Queue and by the way, if you know of any series or shows I would like, let me know. Anything like Anne of Green Gables, Road to Avonlea, Mcleod's Daughters, Christy etc. Bring on the suggestions!
I'm off to do some cleaning around here and maybe just maybe, snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie.
I hope you're having a great Sunday, stay warm, stay safe and God Bless......I'll leave you with this song, I first heard it on Grey's Anatomy and immediately fell in love with it, I think for me it's not just the melody but the words....
"All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am"
"you see the smile it's on my mouth
it's hiding the words that don't come out
all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
they don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
and they don't know what I've been through like you do"
I hope it makes you smile like it does me.
