One Thing Leads to Another...by Balisha
I woke up in the morning... with cleaning on my mind..
I went into the kitchen and what did I find?
The sink was full of dishes... I really need to wash..
But first I went to find the pack of new dishcloths.
The washer in the corner... had a load that couldn't wait..
I checked to find my sock that didn't have a mate.
I found it in my drawer in the bedroom down the hall..
As I was leaving there, I picked up the puppy's ball.
The dog was moaning softly...I knew she wanted out..
I took her to the door.. and a neighbor gave a shout..
"Come for coffee, dear"....I went and had some cake.
My mind was thinking happily... of all I had to bake.
Coming back an hour later..... I spied some ugly weeds..
I got my garden trowel and got down upon my knees.
The telephone was ringing...I went inside the house.
When conversation ended... I thought I saw a mouse.
I found the trap and set it... and turned to find my way..
I found that I was back where I started out today.
I thought about this morning... and the thought came in my head..
My work had made me tired...so I jumped back into bed.
Isn't that the way it always goes. One thing leads to another in the garden and in the house. Sometimes I enter a room and wonder... "Why did I come in here?" Or I'll stand in the basement and wonder, "What did I come down here for?" It happens to all of us, young and old. I have found that as I age....my brain gets so full of knowledge, after all my years of living...that there's no room for more. At least that's what I tell myself :)
Have a nice day....or did I say that already??
