This 5 minute Stream of Consciousness was inspired by my insignificant thoughts first thing Sunday morning, between cups one and two, and after reading the Big Paper. Also, I read Kenya's entry every week so I thought I would give it a try. "What is the season of my life at this moment?"
Timer set and GO...

What do I love about Sunday mornings as an empty nester? The Quiet! Today is bright and sunny and cold. The paper is read…on cup numero dos of my java. There are a million things on my list of things to do today. Usually, I can get away with most Sunday's, or any day really, without much that HAS to be done and I can do the minimum. That's right...I have no kids left at home which sometimes gets me choked up a bit. Not today though.
Two bickering dogs break my quiet moment. Take it somewhere else so I can think. My loving partner enters, fresh from sleeping in way too long, IMO. What are we going to do today? My answer is “What are YOU going to do today?” I have my own list to accomplish. I’m going to be with you for an extended amount of time. Maybe we should head in different directions today. Hate when I’m snippy because I really don’t mean to be. Sometimes happens when I have a lot on my mind.
I’m lucky to be writing this to-do list. I’m lucky to have woken up…period, but too early! I’m lucky to be able to stay in my jammies all morning. I’m lucky that in two days I will be away from the cold and wind of Chicago for 2.5 weeks. I’m an official snowbird flying away to the warmth. Afraid not! Just a long awaited vacation.
How will I do with my darling hubby for 2.5 weeks? Will we annoy each other….
End of time.
So what I just discovered is I need quite a bit of work with this “Stream of Consciousness” thing.
You’d think I’d have more important things swirling around up there. Nope!
It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
▪ Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
▪ Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
▪ Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
▪ Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post.
