flying…(time that is)
May 25, 2011 § 15 Comments
The month of May so far…
Three birthdays (best friend, hubs and Mom)
Graduation (Snarl is so smart – yay!!!!!!!!!!)
First time at a B&B (gorgeous. The Yates House in Rocheport.)
Work (integration with co that has acquired us)
Yardwork (Tons to do to “open” up the place for summer: mulching, trimming, weed whacking, mowing, sweeping, edging, planting…you get the idea)
BBQing (yay – we can be outdoors and the last thing anyone wants to do is open up a laptop)
Checking the schedules and calendars to see where/what we should be doing)
Reading? very little. Various magazines. Franzen’s FREEDOM. (geez, he’s minimalistically “dark” but he can really write and nail characters so I plow on.)
Writing? Um, nearly none. Journal is suffering from separation anxiety.
Call this wee bit forward motion. Some pictures next time.
THINGS LEARNED RECENTLY…
Read books about one’s career. There are things to be learned, or savored, or “aha”ed.
The best thing about outdoors is that wonderful scent/smell. How delightful to smell fresh air!
You should not use A/C to the point where you are sitting on the couch wrapped in a blanket.
Dogs need at least semi-annual grooming. Your dog will allow strangers to clip their nails but not you, so much.
Work will constantly test you. Detox, let it go, on your way home. Upon arrival at home, do NOT immediately attempt to make dinner. Change clothes, have a conversation with hubs. Then, cook simply.
If you know you’re going to fall asleep watching TV at night, then watch it in the bedroom.
A hard rain will wash your car for you.
Umbrellas are useless in sideways rain.
There is such a thing as too many meetings.
There’s magic in a smile.
