Know what I mean?
We are teetering on the edge of Spring. We have snow returning Wed to the tune of 8-12" yipee.
"Hey snow! I'm breaking up with you! It's you, not me, you're no longer fun. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here. We had a good run but I'm moving on, and so should you."
|it's dirty and icy and ugly...|
We had some warm days recently, and I heard birdsong on my walk. The ice on cross streets melted so I could cross to the next sidewalk and it was a godsend to be able to take a real walk without mincing along slipping and sliding. I don't want hot temps, I want clear sidewalks.
I have been unpacking more boxes last week, and found I had bought two moose tablecloths! Must have been on serious clearance at Khols one year! One is oval, so I took off the rectangular one and replaced it with the oval on our rectangular table just to see if it looked interesting. It's bugging me as I sit here seeing it too short and the wrong shape so off it comes when I wash the other one. Gray skies at the moment but hoping to see sun coming in the windows soon on this side of the house, which is really nice. I see standing water in the yard from so much snow accumulation and again wonder why people say it's so dry here.
So much to do. Last week I dusted the glass tables and DH ran into them walking by! (sad to say he'd gotten used to seeing the dust) and mopped the wood floors. It's hard on my back to do both but I am so happy I did.
I need to handle bank stuff from a distance and hate to do that... put it off
I want to continue to organize and sort my sewing supplies. It feels good to know what I have, but challenging to find a new place to store it.
I want to start/finish quilting the snowy cattail piece. I put it away for a couple weeks, tired of it.
I want to FT with my MD friend who moved to SC about the same time I moved here... last week I FT'd with my Boulder friend, and it was almost like being together in person. We propped our IPADs up and just showed what we were working on, and looked into each other's eyes and had a long chat. What joy! So I want to do that with Cindy this week, and maybe even do beading together.
These stinkin' icy roads can't stop us from that!
Gotta change the sheets too... which is a big job with flannel sheets on a King sized bed
Always daily maintenance like dishes, laundry, etc but you don't want to know about that
I realized last year, that as an extrovert living the seclusive life now of an introvert, I needed to chat with friends. Doesn't matter that they are far away if we talk it's like we're together again, and indeed are together in a way.
|can you see the puzzle I'm doing? As if I weren't crazy enough!|
I really had a good time sewing last week. And doing puzzles online is always fun. I like jigsaw planet. I'm now spoiled as they orient them and I just move them around with the cursor putting order to chaos, slowing the monkey brain in my head, looking at pretty colors coming together.
I am only reading about 4 pages a night before I drop the book on my nose so I am still on the same great book. The novels on disc I've been hearing while I work in the studio, have been a big 0. I have had a bad run of them... boring or disturbing, I just stop midway and return it to the library. I checked out a Jude Devereraux and know it will be good though, for this week.
I have lots of beading and art design books to look through during the day. And the home magazines are now piling up all tidy in their plastic mailing wrappers.
I forgot I can just pop a music cd into the dvd player in my studio... did that last week and rocked to bossa nova and samba music while I worked. I also like that UPTV keeps a running loop of Gilmore Girls on in the afternoons and I never seem to tire of the clever use of words on that show. I listen not watch, like eating comfort food kind of.
Is it time to eat again? I tire of that decision. Just want what's easy to fix. We're trying to eat salads again at lunch, for health.I chatted to my friend Nancy this week, and she is headed to Italy soon on vacay... now that's eating!
We finished 800 Words series, sad to report as I will really miss it. Still watching Time Team and Doc Martin, Murdoch Mysteries. I love Survivor but am peeved that they have kept the voted off people without telling the others they have to continue to see them later. No fair!
American Idol is very good this year... altho I am not impressed with the judges too many superlatives, not enough critique, passing too many hopefuls through that we all know have no chance of making it to final 12... and their little hearts will be broken. But it's not my show, I'm not queen, so I'll just keep watching. One guy, Alejandro blew me away. I'd buy his CD tomorrow
He is original talented and humble. How I miss humility in this bragging world we're in, where people say they are the best! which means better than you. Why can't people just do their thing, and be who they are without being the "best!" and bragging so much.
Talent speaks for itself.
I was so involved with the Good Doctor this week too. I feel somehow invested in his character... I want some ombudsman to speak up on his behalf. I am intrigued by the dilemma of ability and talent vs appearance.Can an autistic person with great skill overcome his lack of interpersonal skills? It's a values discussion, what's most important in his world, being brilliant at surgery or handling patients with finesse? I would prefer a brilliant surgical diagnostician to someone to have dinner conversations with, but that's me. Is it enough to do your job or do you have to dazzle people in every way? It's gray... is part of treating the patient, instilling confidence and relating to them?
The bachelor has pushed me beyond... this man baby who is not ready for commitment chooses the one woman who didn't profess her love to him, to pursue. Throws tantrums because who he wants doesn't want him back. Grow up. Get therapy. Figure out why you keep choosing unavailable women. My husband says he doesn't want to be married really.
Now, there is no reason he should have to find love among the contestants a group of producers chose for him... the whole game show element is ridiculous when you consider how hard life is, but some people who really wanted a mate, have found love on this show.
The real show would explore why Colton can't commit. Right? Haven't we all known people who say they want one thing, but sabotage relationship after relationship. And the old adage is true... you know them when you meet them. I knew immediately when I met my husband that he was the one for me. I had dated many years, tried to turn "Mr. You-might-do" into Mr Right, had bent and changed to keep a guy, overlooked a lot of red signs myself in the search for a mate.I can't imagine going through the circus that is the Bachelor franchise. I am not one in a herd... but still I watch.
whew! How do you really feel LeeAnna? lol
