At the end of a long hard day, especially one where we had been out shopping for groceries, clothing or whatever, the only thing that sounds good is the comment – “Gee, I cannot wait to get home, plop in our chairs, put our feet up, and chill out!
Fortunately at our age, as long as we keep our house properly maintained, the bed made when not in it, no dishes in the sink, trash where it should be, and well – how does that old saying go – “a place for everything and everything in its place,” why shouldn’t we look forward to plopping down in front of the television to relax after a, shall we say, “good day!”
My original thoughts were to write something in relation to the old Alka Seltzer commercial – Plop Plop Fizz Fizz, or perhaps something related to a frog plopping in a pond, but my fellow bloggers beat me to the punch.
All of us have our own routines when it comes to our daily or possibly weekly writing habits. Mine is a routine that finds me writing when I get a few minutes during our busy days. The actual posts are usually prepared either in the evening after the house is quiet or early in the morning before we start our busy days. Take this post for instance, while it isn’t the type of post I usually write (and haven’t in some time now) it is my feeble attempt to write about today’s word prompt, plop.
I am finding however that even though neither of us are members of the workforce anymore, living the lifestyle to the fullest, day in and day out, plopping in our easy chairs at the end of an active day is quite the reward.
Until next time!
