Blogging Boredom aka Musings of Me.

When I am bored or don't want to do what I really ought to (the dishes) I get the urge to blog.  I just want to write.  I enjoy writing and when something pops into my head I want to write about it!

The past few days have been absolutely wonderful and I keep thinking about old fashioned things.  I want to discuss a lovely show called The Waltons.  I love this show!  I was raised on it.  I found a channel on YouTube that has lots of episodes!  I love it!  The simplicity of mountain families.  The love and support they show each other.  The realistic events that happen to them.  It is all so simply wonderful!  The extra awesome thing:  The real Walton's Mountain is about two hours from my house!

Last night it was raining.  I so wanted to be in a little cottage with the windows open, a fire in the fireplace, a good book, a good movie, a quilt, a cup of tea, some cookies, and a cat in the middle of a clearing with a garden and a fence with a field and woods all around!  Oh yes, and candles!  Now, does that not sound perfectly splendid?  I thought so.

For now I settle for a house outside London with a lovely garden and a horse in the field at the back of the garden!  The weather is positively beautiful!  There is a cool breeze floating through the air.  As the days shorten the weather cools.  August is here.  Soon, very soon I shall be in the Welsh countryside.

I have a Julia attached to my arm.  Well, not anymore.  She is just like a little cat.  Seriously.  She snuggles so much!

I have several books that need my attention as well as two children who are playing "I Spy" with me while I write this.  Oh yeah!  Multi-tasking!

P.S.  I wish Lenae would still blog : )
