Ugh it's Aug
Finally a few days under 90F to not over-heat in...
I reminded my new boss about requested time off coming up next week, n good thing because he had the wrong week on his calendar! There's a sibling bbq planned by the South Shore, so I'm hoping the weather is good there so I can get in a beach day.
What I like most about summer chores is the light amount of laundry to keep up. So much less work than winter layers, even with more towels. I scored several $3 t-shirts at Back to School Walmart sales too, along with a notebook n pack of pens for a buck.
I've been notebook writing alot since I've been here a year now. Noticably my tired state has contributed to my lack of inspiration in poetry n hand-art-work. recently. Now my ragweed allergy has my eyes all swollen n I always have to take benadryl to stop the head-aches. Still, I manage to feel ambition even if I'm having a tough time doing anything extra.
I cropped out this seagull from the beach last week. Every time a group near me left the beach, he n his pal thoroughly searched the site for scraps, n did find some buried food treasures. They got really ambitious n robbed some people who left their stuff while going to the water... Of course, my stuff was tied up inside bags, so they couldn't get mine. The other folks slowly realized it was their fault, not the birds. Some newcomers learn slowly...
I learned it's been very difficult to live as I have in the past year. Hopefully I find ways to improve progress. Work is about to get very busy for this week-end before I get a few days to re-coup.
This reminds me of folks laying on the beach.
the above is from the crop pic.
It's the Pan Mass Challenge fund-raising week-end bike ride from Hopkington to ProvinceTown, stopping overnight at near by Mass Maritime Academy. Work donates breakfast goods for the participants n we will be swamped. Hopefully after that I get some relax time.
Back to the grind, n heat...
