Miscellaneous Monday Musings
Beginning with inevitable Weather Talk...
We have been having the most amazing weather recently.
Sunday it got up to at least 64 degrees, and they are calling for a high of 70 today!
Marcy and I did not realize how much we had been missing the Big Ball of Beautiful Light until we got to spend so much time in it. It was cleansing and invigorating.
As one of the characters on a Jeeves & Wooster (BBC) once said, "This fresh air is getting into my lungs!"
Moving onto The Kitchen Sink...
Our sink is clogged.
So what, right? Today, I will be calling the plumber, and as an Introvert, this is not something I look forward to -- a stranger in my space.
But, alas, life as an adult who owns a home.
I do have a point, wait...where did I put it? Oh, here...the cat dragged it under my chair.
We have had a bucket in the sink to Rinse Things Into. This has been a lesson.
We use about a half bucket of water just to rinse out the espresso thingie after we make our morning drinks.
This startled me. So having a clogged sink has made me even more aware of and grateful for the water we use. We are figuring out ways to cut back.
In the meantime, we got to see what it must have been like to live in that Little House on the Prairie!! (giggle...)
And culminating with a Typical Rant...
I do not know why, but during Autumn, I get less...tolerant of people and their grouch. People's grouch seems to grow in the Autumn, and I think it has to do with the Holidays and all the stuff we have attached to them.
I don't know.
But crank, snark, and cynicism, all seem to go through the roof as we approach Thanksgiving.
By Saturday mid-morning, I had read a disproportionate number of negative blog posts in my Reader. Which is saying a lot, because the blogs in my reader make it there due to their general lack of Judgment and Nasty.
This led to me feeling quite grumpy which led to me not dancing enough which led to me feeling even more grumpy.
Let's try a little harder to take care of each other, okay?
