Stormy Monday

Leave a comment

Listening to Stormy Monday live by the Allman Brothers band on what is a stormy Monday. Well not too bad really but someone around me is getting hammered. Nice start to the day it is. Then again my day has been packed full from the time I got up till now and I still have a night of work ahead. No problem, been knocking it out of the park for years.

So on this stormy Monday, just like the song, my tone and spirits are getting better as the day progresses. I’m not going to let weather dampen my sprits this week.

I saw a friends new office this weekend and commented on how much I like the rising desk he has. He said standing was a better position for him but the desk also allowed him to sit with a switch. I thought about it for a while. And then I got home and sat at my fathers desk, a little small, fixed height, no electronics and I’m comfortable. So I’ll keep this for a while.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • My neighbors son just finished his first year in Major League Baseball and he seems as grounded as ever. He was out working on his own car today after the season ended. Nice work parents.
  • Felt like I was doing a better job at finishing last week. And that feels good so I’m trying to keep the roll going. Just like the beat on Hot Lanta by the Allman Brothers.
  • The kids sent me pictures of their weekend. So I made prints. They know how to keep me happy and busy.
  • When you can still say “what a relaxing weekend” after working Monday you know it was a good one.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
