Pompeii?

Some day stuff like this is all that will be left of us, besides our acreage-gobbling burial places.

a typical dayThis is an example of the to-do list I have been making every day since I was in the 9th grade..

The 9th grade!

I came upon it this morning on one of my million legal pads and,  because I wasn’t quite awake yet, thought, “Great, it’s my list! Ok, what am I supposed to do first?”

It took me a while to realize it was a list that I had made … when?

A year ago? Two years ago?

I study it and think ‘What a busy girl!’ And also, I wonder if I got it all done?   

Probably not but I I know I sure tried.

Someday, stuff like this is all that will be left of us, besides our acreage-gobbling burial places. 

It’ll be like what we know of the inhabitants of Herculaneum and Pompeii after Vesuvius blew her top: besides our bones-and-dust and a few gold teeth there’ll just be a bunch of old kitchenware and some wall treatments – though hopefully not just the sex-and-phallus-glorification kind like they left. The theory is, this was an oil lamp:

No accounting for tastes I guess. . Right now people rummaging among my things would find a bunch of sample grey damask papers for highly outdated front hall (speaking of wall coverings. 🙂

One thought on “Pompeii?

  1. I’m sure you are just as busy today. I hope you’re scratching things off. That’s the fun of making lists. Your hand writing is so beautiful.
