TAKING A FEW DAYS OFF

It’s a bit slow online, or maybe I’m the one who is slow. One way or the other, I’m taking a few days off. I may reblog a few things and I have enough square photographs to keep up with Becky, too. Rich’s piece will appear tomorrow, but I need a break. Now that the frenzy of you-know-who seems to have at least temporarily ended (until impeachment rears its ugly head), I figure this is as good time as any to relax. The following pictures were all taken by Garry because — well — they aren’t selfies (except one IS a selfie — take your best guess on that).

  1. “You-Know-Who?” Of course you are referring to “Waldemort”, right?

  2. I haven’t written much this month and my views reflect that. I haven’t taken many pictures except for the doll blog and I’ve barely written anything. I need to get a new writing schedule worked out. Now Naomi is here so much my old one doesn’t work anymore. I miss writing.

    • I write while Garry watches TV. I’m not that much of a viewer. Every once in a while we get something interesting and I watch, but a lot of it is mediocre stuff. I also write after Garry goes to bed. He doesn’t go to sleep. He just wants to watch old movies he figures I won’t like, so he’s awake, just not here. I turn off the TV and write. But also, if I want to write, I just do it. I think when you’ve lived together for a while longer, you’ll revert to your old habits pretty quickly. Right now, everything is new and you are both being very attentive, but eventually, you’ll both relax.

    • I keep getting mad at the world which means I wind up writing anyway. It’s not like I can drop by a friend’s house and chat. Besides, all my local friends have died, so other than my granddaughter (who is only in touch when she needs something) and Owen (who lives here) and Garry, everyone else lives at least an hour or two distant. I am SO frustrated.

    • Yes. Read some books. Sift through photographs and find out what I haven’t taken care of. I have whole folders I’ve never even opened. Anyway, I need a breather and it’s slow right now. I suspect EVERYONE is taking a breather.

        • This isn’t going to last long. There will be an impeachment and then — unless our Republican party makes peace with itself and the Democrats stop breaking into factions — there’s going to be some version of an ugly war and all the help we were hoping for will go on hold while AGAIN the guv battles it out. Will they never learn? Do they even care?

  7. Hi Marilyn, enjoy your mini-break. I also think the blogosphere is quieter than usual. I don’t know why either. Your photographs are lovely. All of them.

    • It’s slow right now. I think — at least in the U.S. — “losing” you-know-who has given everyone a sense of peace, at least for a little while. But you know, I write actual letters when I’m not pounding out posts. I’m looking forward to having some time to write thoughtfully and sincerely without a deadline! Didn’t I give up deadlines when I retired? How come they are back?

      • We impose out own deadlines…force of habit, I think 😉

        • Maybe. I think I need some kind of deadline or I wouldn’t get out of bed at all.

            • I wake up relatively early, but now, instead of leaping out of bed, I listen to a book for an hour or two which also gives my medication a chance to work so I can get out of bed and be able to stand up and walk almost like a normal person. Garry would sleep all day if I let him, but I think he mentally needs to get up and focus on something other than dreams. He’s not sick. He just loves sleeping. He spend 50 years under sleep deprivation. I don’t think he’ll live long enough to make up the difference. That being said, he still needs to get out of bed, even if it’s just for a few hours.
