I wanted to take some time off and I am doing exactly that. I spent all yesterday pondering the possibilities of dog adoptions, wrote a few letters, didn’t read anything and didn’t really want to read much of anything. I didn’t prepare a bunch of posts for today and since hardly anyone read any of my posts from yesterday, if you want, they await.
I think there comes a moment in blogging when you’ve been pushing yourself for a long time and your realize you just don’t want to do it. At least not today. Maybe not for a few days. It’s not that I’m not interested in blogging, it’s just that life has been hectic, worrisome and I’ve been feeling more and more pressure to somehow produce material, whether I want to or not. Today, I decided I didn’t want to. I didn’t want to write something new, rewrite something from earlier, process pictures or anything. I just wanted to not do anything. So I didn’t except for this.
What am I doing? Reading. Fixing up the kitchen. I put in a new drain-rack for the dishes. There are new racks for the bottom of the sink, and a few other odds and ends. We did some cleaning. Garry did most of it. I’ve got three new books to read by three favorite authors and I’m going to read them. What a delightful thought!
I’ll get back to you all, probably sooner rather than later. But right now? I need a break!
And remarkably enough, it’s raining. Not heavily. Not pouring, but water is coming from the sky and more is expected tomorrow and the next day. This is a good thing. A very good thing.
NOTE: I also have a really bad toothache and it’s hard to think about anything but the pain in my face. I have an appointment tomorrow, but that seems a million years away right now. It would be ironic to manage to miss COVID and be taken out by a tooth infection!
