#TuesdayThoughts: In the good old summertime.

Standard

Yesterday was such a Monday I didn’t even post a picture with the blog. Now that’s Monday.

Today is not Monday, as it’s Tuesday, and as such I hope to at least manage some kind of image up there. Fingers crossed. (UPDATE: I did it! Photo accomplished.)

We’ve got fluffy clouds and summer temps and not enough coffee but that’s a daily issue. It would be nice if scientists got to inventing a caffeine with all of the benefits and none of the drawbacks.

I suspect Aunty Ida could handle that.

But onward.

The great thing about a finished blog post is all the times I got distracted writing it get smoothed away. Unless I tell on myself as I did right then.

Snitch.

And distracted I was, by those self-same fluffy clouds and assorted other shiny things. I’m definitely feeling the lazy drone of summer, it’s nearly hypnotic.

But off I go to be productive in some form or another. Have a great Tuesday.

#TuesdayThoughts Thinking about the unthinkable

Standard

It’s one of those innocently sunny days, the kind that pretend as though there’s never been a cloud in the sky.

Faker.

Still it finally looks like summer outside, with the sparkling leaves and lush green grass. Given the amount of rain so far, it better be lush.

I cannot pretend that I am not preoccupied with the thought of children wallowing in filth, in the very conditions that breed epidemics, without proper cooked food, without toothbrushes or soap or blankets or beds. An unabashed evil has taken root, twisted, insatiable.

And there’s no clear way to stop it. Some of the people with the power to stop it are the very source of that evil. Were this a story, there would be some kind of magic, some kind of spell that would end it.

But it isn’t.

If you want to know how you can help, there is a comprehensive list of organizations in this article.

With that, I trudge into Tuesday. Have as nice a day as is possible.

Thinking slow #TuesdayThoughts

Standard

It’s pretty chilly for June. Last year, we were steaming away with incredibly high temps, and this year, it’s feeling like April.

I’ll take the cooler temperatures but I’m not sure everyone would agree.

Yesterday’s can-do optimism has given way to something else, something waterlogged with the news that just keeps going, with one ridiculous thing after another.

Exhausting stories of endless entitlement and unearned privilege, of shocked horror at consequences for actions, of people who should stay quiet asserting they have the right to be front and center.

You have to wonder if this is all deliberate, stuck as we are in the minds of writers. I feel like it’s shifted to Bradbury at this point.

Maybe more coffee would help. I’ll think about that.

Regardless, off I go into the great expanse that is Tuesday. Have a fabulous day.

#TuesdayThoughts with Monday behind us

Standard

Well behind us. Thank all that’s thankable for that.

The day did not improve, as the Roomba immediately wedged itself again, and then another string of annoyances. But yesterday was yesterday, today today, and never the twain shall meet.

And here we are.

It’s another stunningly beautiful day, and so far things seem to be somewhat less out to get me. Nothing’s jumped out of the fridge at me, so I’d call that a bonus.

Otherwise, not much to report today, I’m feeling languidly reflective, despite my coffee. Perhaps there should be more in my future.

Perhaps.

And with that, I launch myself into Tuesday. Have a great day.

Mellow #TuesdayThoughts

Standard

And here comes the thunder. It was already dark and gray and raining, and I just saw a flash of lightning.

The thunder followed, as it does.

And I just got distracted, watching the rain. Today’s rain I see as cleansing, as a harbinger of change, washing away the debris of before, giving chance for everything to begin afresh.

Maybe that’s only my mindset. Who knows.

But I like the sound of it, the hush it brings, the way it mutes the tires of the cars. There is no rush today, there is no beating the rain, the rain is here and by the looks of it, it plans to stay.

It’s a good day for being indoors, a day where outside holds no special call. A day for Getting Things Done.

I hope you have a lovely Tuesday.

Tuesday like a Monday

Standard

My workout was so much fun while I was doing it, it was Becca, one of my favorite trainers at Daily Burn, following Boogie (nickname) yesterday, a newer trainer and another favorite. But my muscles are currently rebelling.

Should be an interesting day.

And good luck to me tomorrow.

I’m a fan of the sneaky workout though, it’s tough but doable at the time, but afterward you kind of feel like you’ve been through the washing machine. Typing feels strenuous.

Yesterday we had so much rain, it fell in sheets, and then, when it was over, everything looked so fresh. But it’s rain again today.

So it goes.

I am off to solve the world’s problems. Have a great Tuesday.

Thinking Tuesday.

Standard

So today is not Wednesday and yesterday was not Tuesday, not even last night. I was waiting for “Fosse/Verdon” to come on, and it took me the longest time to remember that it was still Monday.

Still Monday.

Though not today.

Today is legitimately Tuesday.

Honestly I think someone is messing with time, the days feel like they’re lasting a week or more lately. It would explain so much, if someone had a time machine.

And not a good someone either. No Doctor here.

It’s another sunny day and as we push on through the week, I can’t help but believe that Spring means it this time. I’ve thought that before, but now, I think it’s going to stick.

Let’s hope.

Have a great TUESDAY. Today is Tuesday, in case anyone besides me needs reminding.
