Himself: Swam, job hunted, errands, dinner out at Greek, and it was a no on the Geico jobs.
Herself: Swam, books and inventory at the Discovery shop, chapbook too dark and smeared but I approved the proof, oh well. Greek dinner. Closed my photo blog. Life moves on.
Gratitude: Went to the library.
Life was improved dramatically when I walked into my local library. A simple action. I was buoyed up, happy to find these isles of familiar volumes, and suddenly my joy in life awoke again. Why haven’t I been? I can’t really answer….a life fully led leaves time for only paragraphs in the evening instead of a book a day. I’ve been wandering my way through a book a week lately….books off my own shelves. Just as I cannot afford to buy more of my chapbook right now, purchasing the Dana Stabenow volumes is beyond my current budget.
Starting tomorrow, I begin quilting again…a simple nine patch in blues with contrasting center squares. I’ll begin keeping a blog about it too…when the computer is working. Mine is an early Vista computer, and these had a problem with updating. The Geezer has learned a lot in the last few days…one thing being that he has to go back and start over again with it. No sound here. When I wanted to hear Poolie sing, I couldn’t.
So today will be a day off…after class. Just to take a moment or so to read a book. Perhaps a picnic by the bay in the unusual grey drizzle of these July days. Perhaps a hug for the Geezer, or a hug back. Life will be ok; it’s just taking longer than expected to get there.
