Heavy Rains And Deep Thoughts

Boy, did it pour last night!  We've had an estimated 1.18 with a possible 1-2 more inches forecasted for today.  Nothing showing on the radar yet this morning so it must all be pop-up storms coming on later.

Looking back though on the week that was, I'm grateful that it was a splendid week with blue skies, mild temperatures and dry weather.  I got to work outside everyday and got a lot accomplished.  It's funny that I'm actually glad that today is a rainy day.


Well, for one thing an enforced day inside makes me pay attention to the simple tasks that need doing on a weekly basis like cleaning bathrooms, stripping the bedding and getting all that washed, cooking food for the week...You know...Life.

When I get into project mode I go into it whole hog.  Every molecule of my being is in deep concentration about "The Project" and by the end of the day I'm so wiped out that it's a shrug when SM asks "what's for dinner?"

It's been a PBJ and salad kind of week for him, poor guy.  (I think I'll make a meatloaf today to help make up for the lack of quality sustenance.)

The other thing I noticed is that I can't think creatively when I'm busy doing projects.  Maybe it just me, but I think my blog posts are more of the "this is what I did today" type of post rather than the deeper, creative, more thoughtful posts that I enjoy writing.

Is it that way with you?  Maybe I'm just a slow typer (or a slow thinker) but I can't whip this stuff out that fast.

So think kindly of me while I'm scrubbing the toilet today.  I just might be working on my next blog post...



  1. Isn't it amazing where/how we find the creative spark? I'd rather be thinking of anything else than scrubbing the toilet... :)

  2. I don't mind the "here's what I did today" posts, but totally understand what you mean.
