It looked like snow earlier, with bright sun glazing the clouds, but the sunshine seems to have won. There’s a benefit to getting to the blog late, I guess.
And it is late, I had a grocery delivery today, my first since at least the summer. While the virus is still burning hot and we wait to be able to visit my mom in person, caution, caution, caution is the way for me.
Dangerous times mixed with stupidity are not my favorite.
Anyway, the groceries are put away, my update is done, and now I have some annoying tasks to knock out, one at a time, before we video visit with my mom.
And that’s it for me on this Tuesday (now) afternoon. Have a wonderful rest of your day.
We’ve gotten a dusting of snow, only enough to turn patches white with browny-green grass around the edges. The sky is threatening though, it looks like more snow to come.
Today I feel like I have a chain of tasks, the next thing only to be done after the previous one, a tightrope that can only be walked in a particular direction.
No side diversions today.
So that’s fun.
Besides that, it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the US, and a good time to think about how much people tried to undo over the previous several years. How much hatred they fanned; how much division they continue to try to sow.
Already diverting but have you noticed if you use the homonym, “sew” it actually fixes the problem? So instead of sowing division you sew division?
English is weird.
Anyway, today is a good day to ask ourselves whether we are doing our best to ensure equality, dignity, fairness and justice for all. If we aren’t, how can we do better and serve the legacy of the Rev. Dr. King?
And with that, I’m off to put one task in front of the other. Have a great Monday.
You may have noticed I didn’t do a Mom Update yesterday. Here it is, and it inspired today’s blog post.
Talk about your bang for your proverbial buck, proverbial as it’s not like I’m charging admission here.
I simply forgot to do it yesterday. Completely forgot.
And in calmer times I might have agonized. I might have dropped everything else to get it up and published in a rush.
But I didn’t. I figured I could just do it today. There are no rules requiring it to go up on Tuesday. No laws. No deadlines beyond the self-imposed.
Sometimes you’re going to drop a ball. Sometimes you may drop an entire gym locker of them. But as long as no one gets hurt, most of the time, you can find that ball where it rolled under the couch and get right back to it.
Shrug and move on. The world probably will.
And with that, I’ll call it a post. Have a great Wednesday.
I’m moving into the week slowly, now that we’re out of that holiday shadow and it’s plain winter. No more pretty lights, no more holiday recipes everywhere, just head down moving forward.
Against a frigid, piercing wind.
Take that as literally or metaphorically as you will.
I’ve been having really weird dreams lately, it seems like it’s something in the air. I remember only bits and pieces, but none that make much sense. It makes me wonder about all those hours spent asleep.
Such a strange thing that we do.
Anyway, that’s it for me on this Monday. Have a great day.
