Seeking Peace On The Roof

Tom left to pick up Kathleen at the airport.
They will stay down with family for a service tonight for Dolores.
And come home later.


I spent some time on the garage roof today.


Lots of leaves on both sides.
The wind has cleared some of the roof.


After raking, I need a time out resting on the roof.
Peaceful up there.
I think of all kinds of wonderful things
to write about the meaning of life.
But they are gone.
Same thing happens before I go to sleep.
I need to keep a notepad by the bed
or a digital voice recorder.


Time to get down.


The chickens were watching me
while they were relaxing in the sunshine.


Clean roof!

Next I cut a Christmas tree.
Then I put a new head on the scarecrow.
Then I hurt my back carrying the tree.
Report and photos tomorrow,


December Quotes
My Favorite Quotations On Giving

~~~

9 - It is normal to give away a little of one's life
in order not to lose it all.
~ Albert Camus 

8 - For somehow, not only at Christmas, but all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others is the joy
that comes back to you.
~ John Greenleaf Whittier

You sound like me. I think of something neat and forget it by the time I can write it down.
Glad you got to have some contemplation time. :)

I like the picture looking up at the sky from the roof! You've not seen me on the roof in quite awhile though I suppose my roof needs to be raked... Too cold!!!!

Bet the chickens thought you were doing nothing unusual, just roosting up there.
