I regularly think of random things. That’s how this brain works – – in the car, at night, during conference calls … Too much swirling around to stop randomly weird things from popping in & making themselves at home.
1 ) Weekends .. when I have no deadlines and no reasons not to sleep in .. I don’t. Nope. I’m awake early, rolling around, flipping/flopping till finally I just fling the blankets off and stomp to the coffee pot ~ I see the early clock and sigh because this is the stuff weekday dreams are made of … but no, not me. I’m up. Up!
2 ) I read this quote recently and claimed it:
I hope to arrive at my death, late, in love, and a little drunk. ~Atticus
well if that doesn’t say it all!
3 ) Three weeks ago I went shopping for a reclining beach chair – the kind you can use in your backyard or at the beach (the one I never go to unless company is in town). So I set it up in on the patio, stack my books and an Arnie Palmer then haul out 75+ sun block, a fly swatter & a water spray bottle. I lay down a towel and carefully climb on in ~ instantly the thing folds and I am trapped in it like a finger in a clam shell. What the? I carefully get out, adjust the settings and give it another go. Klang – I’m folded up in the stupid thing like yesterday’s burrito. Hubbs, leaving for golf, steps out to find me tangled up and sputtering. He gently asks if all is well? I smile, say nothing, and stomp past him with the folded chair over my shoulder and proceed to hoist it into the trash, stomp back, drag two patio chairs together and affix myself between them. He smiles and waves good-bye (smart man). Yesterday I went looking look for a replacement — well now that SCHOOL SUPPLIES are out …….. the 2-3 beach chairs left have been relegated to the back corner with the 50%-off garden supplies. It’s mid July. What happened?
4 ) They tend to come in cycles but lately there’s been an influx of annoying recorded spam phone calls to our house phone — “Hi! This is Tiffany from blah-blah-blah services” (insert the words travel, credit card, rewards, cruise ship where I had the words blah-blah-blah). I like to answer and, while the recording is going start talking gibberish. Calls end abruptly and my stress wanes. Highly recommend it. 🙂
5 ) We’re about to start a months-long project and with it comes weekly check-in calls ~ time to break out the Bingo card:
How about you? What have you shopped for lately that was suddenly “out of season?” Notice an influx of spam phone calls? Ever play conference call Bingo?
