Liberating

cute-animal-pictures-animals-eating-watermelon-008

I did something last night to Daughter #1’s horror that I don’t think she’ll ever be able to erase from her mind.

I went outside in my undies!!!

Oh the horror!!!!!

It was so hot in my house last night (85 degrees to be exact) that I stripped down to my skivvies and marched straight outside!!

“Muuuummmmm!!!! That’s gross.”  (a bit harsh….I don’t think I look that bad ) 😀

I said “Well it’s not like I’m sitting on the front steps of the house in my mentionables eating watermelon for all the world to see!!!”

I was in my very semi secluded backyard at 9 pm.  😀

There was something so liberating about it, I felt like as though I was breaking the law and getting away with it, or like when I was little ,swiping little bits of icing off a freshly iced cake that I wasn’t supposed to touch… while no one was looking…and fixing it up as though I was never there 😀

So lock your doors and close the blinds,

Mamas goin out again tonight!!!

😀 😀 😀

Sunday Morning coming down with Johnny Cash

103947-johnny_cash_617_409

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

I’d smoked my mind the night before
With cigarettes and songs I’d been picking.
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
Playing with a can that he was kicking.
Then I walked across the street
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken.
And Lord, it took me back to something that I’d lost
Somewhere, somehow along the way.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I’m wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
‘Cause there’s something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there’s nothing short a’ dying
That’s half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singing.
Then I headed down the street,
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I’m wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
‘Cause there’s something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there’s nothing short a’ dying
That’s half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.
