Saturday observations and other crap

Leave a comment

Really beautiful day, in so many ways. A relaxed morning with my better half and lunch with our daughter. Managed to work without inflicting pain upon myself. Now I call that a success.

I see the NBA playoffs have started. I’m excited and I’m not. I’ll follow the Bullets, ops sorry, Wizards. I’m a Laker fan so don’t really have a chip in the game this year.

Do you ever get the feeling as you’re looking at other peoples work and words that your own are so far behind? Some days I look at it like that and then I try to make myself look at it again and say, wow and I’m inspired.

I observed that no matter how hot it got, and how many times I broke a sweat today, that I never wish for it to be as Cold As -, well you know what.

I’ve observed I’m more informed and less frustrated when I read about political matters instead of watching the talking heads as much. It’s also easier to go find facts that support or don’t support arguments being made.

I’ve observed that my eyes are itching like crazy and I may scratch them out before the end of the day. Oh yeah, along with my favorite seasons comes the pollen.

I’ve observed the weekend is flying by.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I put many a bag of mulch down and did as mulch as my back could take today.

You ever stop and wonder how many seasons you have left?

You know I really like warm weather but a gradual rise would have been nice before the instant oven effect.

I need a flashing light in the mirror that says “restraint.”

I guess the weather report was listening to me rant about balance in life. So we get rain and thunderstorms after the most beautiful day of the year so far today.
