This is how I think of my life these days – a show all about nothing.
Jerry Seinfeld made himself a fortune or two off of that idea… his show about nothing on TV… but I’m afraid no one is going to pay to see my personal show about nothing… not that interesting.
I go through the motions of life, barely, these days. I get out of bed by about 9 or shortly thereafter (sometimes earlier but I try to make 9 o’clock just because I can!) I always get dressed for the day, usually in the same uniform every day. I am more like a fixture here in the house, never changing much. I come down and get my cuppa and do any needed chores, like making Paul a bread in the machine, and then I sit down and drink my life-sustaining cuppa coffee, without which I may as well not even get out of bed.
Today I had a few things to accomplish – wash the hair (oh yeah… I gave up on that baking soda thing a while back. I now use my shampoo but I don’t wash it every day, maybe once every 4 days – about as often as I have to make Paul a bread in the machine). I also had to whip up a batch of oatmeal cookies for him today as he ate up the last of previous batch. I threw in a handful or so of milk chocolate chips – not because he loves chocolate chips, he doesn’t, but because I had them here and I love them, and I have been known to eat one or two of his cookies…
Dried my hair which is always a challenge for me. Standing up long enough to dry my hair is too painful so I have to sit on the (closed) toilet seat and do it but I can’t see what I’m doing so sometimes the drying technique is less than ideal. But after almost 66 years of living on this earth, how my hair dries is really of very little consequence to anyone.
It’s a beautiful winter day here, all the snow has disappeared with the rain we had. Paul is working in the basement on his lobstering gear (buoys, traps, ropes, etc.). I am contemplating getting stuck into my current book right about now so there you go! Nothing much going on here.
Oh, I am progressing a bit in the “decluttering” department, and I will update you on that at another time. Just not in the mood at the present to organize a blog about all of it. But it IS getting done, slowly….
It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
