I truly enjoy the days that are filled with bits and bobbles of this and that. They create a balance in my mind that works. Yin and Yang. Write and read indeed. They leave me feeling positive about my days.
Yes, water aerobics first. The weather is changing, and I shuffled out to the pool like a five hundred year old sloth. The hot tub and those range of motion stretches improved my morning…as did laughter with friends, and I came back to edit that piece about my mother for the last time.
I heard from http://www.timegoesby.net/elderstorytelling/2013/06/in-total-silence.html>Ronni Bennett that my negative piece about the house chaoswas to be published on her blog today also. Feeling rather writerly I printed off a copy of “Mother” and headed to FedEx Office, ExKinkos, to print up twenty copies for class. Right around the corner, in the same building is the American Cancer Society’s Discovery Shop where I Volunteer two days a week. This week three.
Sunday I had stopped in and discovered five huge boxes of cookbooks plus three giant boxes of kiddy lit filling the sorting area. I shelved them filling the new book storage area half way to the ceiling. Yesterday I discovered another eleven boxes of books stacked just waiting for me. Yes, I peeked in the boxes. The first few had encyclopedia yearly updates. Those aren’t very useful any more.
Did you know there is a whole art form using old books? Google Images of Book Art. Check out these carefully folded works by http://www.booooooom.com/2011/01/19/book-art-by-isaac-salazar/>Isaac Salazar.
Yes, I didn’t get those five boxes of books out of the way. I was so proud of myself. I posted the days I would be gone in July and August, came home to make a poster for an art book table, dozed over the computer, cooked a not memorable meal. I’ll talk about learning to use the Cuisinart later.
Yes, there are some really good days around here even if I end up dozing off over my computer.
