MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 250 – SEPTEMBER 8, 2013
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR SUNDAY, DAY 250 OF 2013: In the dark hours of morning the sky was filled with the distant rumblings of thunder, and Mlle. Renee walked into my bedroom and shook the bed to wake me up. For some reason she always has to wake me up to ask if she can jump up and sleep on the bottom of the bed and use my legs as her pillow. I always pat the bed twice and say, “Come on.” I really didn’t check the time, because if it’s still dark … it’s too early to get up! So we both went back to sleep. I know I heard a couple of loud thunder crashes, but they didn’t see to bother Renee. She knows she’s safe if she has my legs for her pillow.
It was still dark in the room when I woke up again. This time I looked at the clock and it said 9:23. I could hear the rain still beating against the window and Renee was snoring. So I decided to sleep in. And I pull my cover up and did just that.
Why does it feel so go to sleep in on a rainy day? I have no idea, but it always is one of the best sleep ins. It must have been one of the bests for Renee, too. When I finally got up going on to 10:30, she rolled over and kept on sleeping. One bad thing about sleeping in, I had a morning-mare about snails and slugs. I’m sure it was caused by my early education from the nuns. I’m sure Sister Mary Penance must have had something to say about taking delight in the earthly pleasure of sleeping-in on a Sunday morning. I uses to go to church every Sunday until the Archbishop closed down all the nearby parishes. To go to the closest church now, I’d have to take an hour and a half bus ride on two buses.
I had planned on going to the St. Louis Art Fair today, but the rain has been off and on all day so far. So I decided to stay at home and make a meatloaf for dinner.
Trust me, the premise was by far superior to the performance.
