Stormy Monday

Leave a comment

Had to listen to that Almond Brother Band tune Stormy Monday this morning. Seemed appropriate for the day itself here in Mary-Land. Not so merry on the roads though today. Did some slipping and sliding on the way home this morning. Well most of the trip was fine till I got on the back roads to my home which hadn’t been touched.

And another night of slip sliding away for this evening. Be safe out there you nuts.

Yeah I cheated, this is an older shot of snow in downtown. I should get out this morning early and see if I can get some weather related shots. Hell, I’ll get to the door and see the frozen tundra and will probably high tail it back inside.

Plus I’ll be whipped from a long nights work. I’ve been busier than usual on the job that pays the bills. That in turn wears me out mentally more than it used to. Not in so much a bad way. I don’t get negative about it. The energy just seems to be sapped out of me when I get excited about doing some of my own work.

It’s also harder to think creatively for me when I’m worn out. Like today, I didn’t think I could find much interesting to write about and I was right because I was wiped from yesterday. At least I’m blessed not to have to work two jobs to make ends meet. Those days are over, at least I hope so.

I think if I work to get ahead and plan better I wouldn’t run into these situations so here’s to working ahead a few days starting tomorrow.

Random Thoughts of the Day

When so many little things aren’t addressed it’s a big thing.

The more honest I am with myself the better strides I make.

I’m starting to hear stories of tax issues, lower refunds, more people owing money. That’s not going to make the troops happy.

I’m becoming a pistachio nut nut.

Isn’t it nice. Pick something. If you can’t find something, change some things in your life.
