Nothing Accomplished 

Oh I had all kinds of plans for today.  But before I knew it the day was done and I hadn’t accomplished one blessed thing.

Not that I didn’t try.  I wanted to put the last shade up. It was late afternoon and I knew it was not the time to start doing it.  But, how long could it take I though.

Well, a funny thing happened on the way to accomplishing getting that shade up.  I rested the new shade on the back of the couch over which it was going to go.

Really bad move.  In a flash it fell behind the couch.  OK, just reach down there and pull it back up.  Nope.  It was wedged under the frame of the couch.  I ended up having to pull the couch out to get to it and get it out.

I’ll try again tomorrow.

At least Ms Barbara accomplished something.  She was able to get caught up on the laundry.


Remember the two bowls that had gotten stuck together?  We tried all kinds of tricks to separate them.  Well, I picked them up again a few days ago and I heard a clink, then just like that they came apart.  Go figure.

One more item to share with you.  A quote which I believe is so very true. . . .

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could…. This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.Ralph Waldo Emerson

That’s it for our journey today on The Road of Retirement.  A real exciting day, hey?

Thanks for stopping by today.  We always appreciate when you stop by to say hello, and we do appreciate your comments and suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!




  1. I laughed out loud when I saw the short, simple notification of “Nothing Accomplished.” Some days are like that. However, those two bowls came apart, and that is something! I think the Lord above touched your day with that miracle! I love the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I think I should read that at the start of each day. Enjoy your day!
