January 1, 2010

Hope everyone survived the festivities last night. I fell asleep about 11, I think.
Just finished riding my exercycle for 3.7 miles & 13.09 minutes at 16.3 mph & burned 178 calories. Also did my chair exercises. Off to scrub the shower.
Got most of the shower scrubbed. Still need to do the glass door. Will have to be another day. I really need to get my 2010 work schedule onto the calendar & hope that it doesn't get totally screwed up in the first month.
Just finished getting my schedule & paperwork set up for the year. Took over 3 hours ... but it is done & organized.
Time for dinner!
Very short blog post tonight, it seems.
So, here's a nice poem:

I WANDERED lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
The stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Outdid the sparkling waves in glee;
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company;
I gazed -- and gazed -- but little thought
What wealth to me the show had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

William Wordsworth
