The elections are over. I was kind of looking forward to a quiet simple supper after yoga class last night. Surely it was too late by then for any more reminders to vote, surveys of opinions, requests for money. I was wrong about that, but I have to say I think caller ID is about the greatest innovation of the past century. Somebody should get a prize for that. Maybe not the Nobel, but a prize.
I worked at the polls, checking voters in. I had to be there before the polls opened and there was already a line. That was encouraging. I cannot say I am in any way enchanted with the current political scene in this country otherwise. The obvious solution is to just let me rule the world but that does not look likely anytime soon.
I had forgotten what it was like to wake up and have to get busy right away preparing to go out of the house. It was a bit of a shock to the system. Much nicer, this morning, to sit here by the window, wrapped in a cozy robe, sipping coffee, and watching the school bus stop to pick up kids and then the parents heading off to work. Ahh. And doesn't a second cup of coffee sound like a good idea on this grey and windy day?
I always have plenty to do, but I LOVE being able to just ease into my days. Nice to be reminded sometimes of what a treasure that is.
