Thinking out loud

Today, the weather in my corner of the UK is not the kind of weather that makes me want to go outside ever.  It’s a bit rainy and very windy.  Sitting here in my cosy den, I hear my wind chimes chiming in the breeze, I hear rain on the window and the sound of the wind blowing through trees.  The sky is a featureless dull white and my view across to Liverpool is absent.

It’s a peaceful kind of rainy day as, home alone, I can do whatever I want to do.

  • write to-do list – 7 items
  • bake sweet potatoes – not on my to-do list
  • make phone call, send email – that’s 2 crossed off
  • menu plan today to Sunday – another 1 crossed off
  • write this… instead of any of the remaining 4 items on my to-do list


  • think about which task to tackle next
  • fail to make a decision and mindlessly browse the internet
  • have lunch
  • prepare dinner

Decision making isn’t my strong point, it’s obviously very useful to have a list of tasks to focus on but not so useful if you can’t decide what order to do things in… on that note I’m off to [no, not mindlessly browse the internet], start writing a children’s storybook and decide on some poems to submit.  Then, after lunch, rummage through my fabric drawer and do the Tesco order for next week.

Mission accomplished!

Hi, I'm Karen, creator of which is home to my poetry, art and general ramblings. I am the author two collections of poetry, 'Kaleidoscopic Beauty' & 'I am the Stars in the Sky', and the children's book 'All That Glitters' (not yet published). I also enjoy running.

One thought on “Thinking out loud

  1. 🙂 Yes, I would agree that a list will help us to get things done.

    In my case, I prefer to allow the situation to unfold.

    By the way, I started writing my comment in your “Reblog Post” section. Luckily, I was alert enough to erase it and place my thoughts in your “Post Comment” section; which is where I intended to put it in the first place.

    Do enjoy the rest of your day, my friend!
