BEDA 29 - Post partum projects

The question arises... what to do after BEDA? Because it's only today and tomorrow left? I'm getting jittery already ;)

I have a few "projects" in my life running, so where will my time go? I'm still trying to read 50 books in 2009 and I have to tell you, I'm not up to par. I'm at 13-14 books and should be at 16 at least. But I'll do that.

What I'll also do is learn a few poems by heart. I won't have the time to learn one every day, but maybe every week? I have a very good memory, so it doesn't take me too long to learn a poem (well... at least not if it's shorter than a page ;).

I will spend more time outside in the parks and gardens. Smelling the lilacs is especially rewarding, but it's raining today :-( so that's no fun.

I'm gonna travel a bit this summer or at least I'm planning to. Last year I've been to Japan and the USA, but this year? I'm thinking about England, Egypt, I'd love to visit Scandinavia or spend a few weeks in the south of France... Oh boy, if I had more vacation days ;)

I would love to do some youtube collaborations, because I love them and that's something that would be fun to do. Also, I'd like to get into writing more. Short stories, but maybe not a novel, because I don't have the patience ;) Write a few songs, play the piano more... I have loads to do. Loads!

Today, I looked at my bank account and was a bit shocked by the 2 digit number... so it turns out that today was the day, all cooperations decided to get some money from me. Credit card, car tax, amazon (yeah... that's a bit my fault), etcetc... Luckily, I'll get my paycheck tomorrow.. I hate being that low on cash... but who doesn't.

I like my youtube subscribers. I like my twitter followers. I adore my blog readers ;) Wait... that my sound like I copied it from Hayley. I didn't, I just feel the same. Is it copying, if the feeling is the same from the beginning? Because it can't be a copy if it's both the original, right?


Golden rod and the 4-H stone
The things I brought you
When I found out you had cancer of the bone

Your father cried on the telephone
And he drove his car to the Navy yard
Just to prove that he was sorry

In the morning through the window shade
When the light pressed up against your shoulder blade
I could see what you were reading

Oh the glory that the lord has made
And the complications you could do without
When I kissed you on the mouth

Tuesday night at the bible study
We lift our hands and pray over your body
But nothing ever happens

I remember at Michael's house
In the living room when you kissed my neck
And I almost touched your blouse

In the morning at the top of the stairs
When your father found out what we did that night
And you told me you were scared

Oh the glory when you ran outside
With your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied
And you told me not to follow you

Sunday night when I cleaned the house
I find the card where you wrote it out
With the pictures of your mother

On the floor at the great divide
With my shirt tucked in and my shoes untied
I am crying in the bathroom

In the morning when you finally go
And the nurse runs in with her head hung low
And the cardinal hits the window

In the morning in the winter shade
On the first of March on the holiday
I thought I saw you breathing

Oh the glory that the lord has made
And the complications when I see his face
In the morning in the window

Oh the glory when he took our place
But he took my shoulders and he shook my face
And he takes and he takes and he takes

Scandinavia is a good place to visit! Especially Norway. It's definitely the prettiest of them all. ;)

Sounds like you have lots of plans for "Life after BEDA". I'm going to have to make some too, otherwise my life will jsut be horribly empty. Perhaps that should be my next blog entry. :)
