It's been another couple of whirlwind work days, leaving me sort of stunned at the end of them, and happy to put the computer aside in the evening. But I had another weekend day this past weekend of being unable to motivate myself to do a ding danged thang.
There's snow out there. The sun's set on it now, and I've not set foot outside, and I don't feel like sweeping the stoop on this cold night to go get the mail. Hope it won't freeze into a hard-to-chip-away surface. But if it does, it does.
I made a grocery store trip, and am well-stocked in many things. Need to freeze some of the bread variations. Got another jug of ice melt stuff, so I can retrieve that from the back end of the Jeep if I need it for that front stoop.
The pandemic has me pretty worn down. Flurries of work busy-ness are good that way, at least. A temporary distraction. Seems like I have a smaller percentage of just-feeling-ordinary days/times/hours lately, vs. the doom-tinged socked-in spirit-sunk kind. With a major exception for that day last week of light-hearted images of Bernie & his mittens.
So here's today's tie:
This is a tie I seemed to be unable to get to knot up in the middle good, last week, but today, no prob. Go figure.
It did take me a few tries to get a decent shot of me in it to share with the work folks, but then I snapped this pretty good one:
It's that dark blue wall it's against, I think. And somehow I have a bit of a smile in my eyes. Also I finally found a spot I wasn't getting a lot of light reflected in my glasses. These last two sets of lenses I got are supposed to have that anti-glare/-reflection coating, but it's not real effective, if it's really even on there.
Now I gotta see if I have it in my to put together a nice supper for myself. Earlier I used toppings from a premade salad whose lettuce I didn't notice had started to brown, combined with other lettuce that I bought, and some broccoli. Nice save, thought I.
I really oughta work more, to make my day tomorrow easier, but, like, eff that.
Also I am behind again on the friends feed here. Not that we hold each other to big expectations that way any more, to the extent that folks used to. Still. I do wonder what's been going on with you all.
