How It Goes
On the way into work the past week I've seen a couple of gorgeous sunsets with no camera or time to stop n enjoy them. The weather was all warm n nice for the workweek too. Of course now I'm Off n it's expected to be overcast n get cold again. Well at least we haven't iced over here yet.
Few pics have been shot in December so far. I'm making very slow progress on the holiday shopping. There's so much to do n I'm still pretty grumpy from not sleeping enough.
The one thing that was already done, putting mini-lights on a little tree on the deck- already had to be done three times! A critter decided to eat the wires n chewed two brand new light strings clean in half. I don't know if it was the squirrels or the opossum who I see here often. Finally it's been lit several days now without getting attacked again, surrounded with chicken wire n hunks of some rotten, old garlic I had laying around... How festive (Not!).
This week I was reminded of the imminent approach of the end of the Mayan Calender dates on the Winter Solstice. I doubt time will end because of a number not fitting onto an ancient stone sculpture in Meso-America.
But if I thought the world would end what would I now be doing differently?
- I'd jack up the elec heat cause I wouldn't have to pay for it.
- I'd spend all my cash on yummy, fattening food like KFC.
- I wouldn't worry about saving money from my paycheck toward rent.
- Everyone would get early Xmas presents!
- The last week I'd quit work because I wouldn't get paid for it.
There's no use crying over spilled milk, but a shelf-safe box of it (for emer-
gencies) fell off the top of the frig, split open, n got all over the kitchen right after I got home from work tonight. I just spent a couple hours chasing it down instead of relaxing, but suspect the rug will probably smell sour by tomorrow. Plus I need to spend some free time washing my shoes.
This image of the Short Pier is from a couple weeks ago, on a day I went to the pier for sunset, but it was a strange, spotty, reflective, n cloudy one.
