I had a few fantastic ideas for blog posts lately, but they pop into my head at the most inopportune moments: When I'm in the operating room at work, with no opportunity to write them down; during dog walks; just before I have to leave for an appointment. By the time I finally have time to sit down, they are gone, just enough of a memory to mock me, but not substantial enough to form into a story. It's maddening. Count yourself lucky that you can't see inside my head right now, it's a scary place.
Anyway, I was dying to sit down and write something, so I decided to do a variation of the "currently"-theme that's popular with bloggers.
... I'm loving Pixaby. It's a fabulous site for free (!) images for your blog or website. You don't have to quote the source, you don't have to worry about copyright issues, you simply download and share. I love it! The above picture is from that site, it makes me happy just looking at it. Such a beautiful landscape!
... we are having a coyote-problem. They prowl the perimeters of our property all night long, yipping and howling, which in turn makes the dogs bark nonstop. No wonder I have bags under my eyes. Yesterday we found a hole under the fence, which explains why Chuck Norris, our freedom-loving meat chicken, disappeared. It's a sad ending for a ferocious chicken, but I guess it was always destined for somebody's stomach. Instead of us, it fed the coyotes, who have now declared our place as the best all-you-can-eat-buffet in the neighbourhood.
... I'm getting nervous about my citizenship test. It's six days away, which makes me feel like I should study for it all.the.time. So I'm carrying my notes around with me wherever I go, not actually looking at them, just having them close-by. Maybe I will absorb the information through osmosis?
... I'm feeling overwhelmed by all the adult stuff that needs to be done every day. Do you feel the same sometimes? Life seems to be a never-ending series of to-do lists, with five new items popping up for every one you crossed off. Since I'm not only managing mine, but also Richard's life, I feel like an overworked, underpaid secretary. This morning I/we made nine appointments for the next three days, which makes my head spin. Make it stop!
... I'm stretching my hamstrings so much, they are starting to get flexible! The other day, this happened:
|The leg is straight!|
This makes me all kinds of happy.
... I've had a few really great coffee and dinner dates, which makes me appreciate the people in my life so much. You're the best!
... we are planning next year's vacation(s), and there is a chance that we might cruise in the Caribbean! How amazing would that be?
