Listing the Essential

Today the prompt word at Sunday Scribblings is "essential".  I decided that the best way to deal with it would be to list what is essential to me today.  Here is the list in no particular order:

  • To watch the Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays play their 4th playoff game and hopefully see the Rangers win at home and go to the next level.
  • To take a long hot shower and wash my hair
  • To dry the load of clothes in the washer and wash a load of towels and one load of hubby's clothes.
  • To eat at least two ice cream sandwiches
  • To curl up and read
  • To realize that if the only things I actually get done are the baseball game, eating the ice cream sandwiches and the reading, then that was all that was really essential today after all.

From a displaced Arlington, Texas native: Go Rangers!

that sounds like a great day to me.
Sometimes we get all caught up it what we are "supposed" to do and forget to relax a little.

I really likes ice cream and read at the same time or watching tv and eat ice cream. But I think the best is drink a hot tea and read at a rain day.
I liked your list, poses the simple things first

I liked how you focused on the real essentials in the end: to enjoy yourself :-)
