So I sit in a lot of meetings at work, and many of these meetings have little do nothing to do with my actual work. So I find my mind wandering and my hands doodling. I’m a terrible doodler, I can barely draw a stick figure, so I often write words and then scribble over them. Here are some of my latest deep thoughts from a meeting a week or so ago:
- Sometimes you just need to face the music and realize you’re in a horror movie.
- One way or the other will send you in opposite directions.
- Time will tell and you can’t tell it to shut up.
- Fools rush in and lose on appeal. (occassionally a lawyererly one pops in my mind)
- Appeal is the surface of the fruit.
- The wheels on the bus on round and round, just like attorneys.
Today on my way to work I passed a semi for Groovy Yurts! I loved it, I took a picture with my cell phone and sent it to my dad and husband. I don’t know why it made me so happy, it just did.
Tomorrow I head to Iowa, first to see my sister in Marengo then up to my parents in Independence to visit them and my grandmother who has recently moved there temporarily (or not so temporarily if she likes it) in an assisted living facility. She’s my last surviving grandparent and she’s 94. I have to pack tonight as I’m working a half day and then driving up. I hate packing, I never know what to take and always take the wrong thing and never the right things. Worse yet, I have no clue what knitting to take! Doily patterns and yarn for doilies or should I take Elizabeth. I started her sleeve the other day when I was in the Arch Museum waiting on friends from Iowa to come down from the top of the Arch. And then of course I could take the Forest Path Stole and work on the dreaded border. I really need to focus some attention on it, but I don’t wanna!
I’m going all by myself, maybe I’ll just take all my stash with me, there should be almost enough room in the van. Wait, who am I kidding I couldn’t fit half my stash in the van. But I do have plenty of room, I guess it just is more of a question how much to I want to pack? Maybe I should have bought a yurt.
The worst part about going away for 5 nights and 6 days is the fact that I’m leaving my parrot, my pups, and my husband. How will I sleep without all of them or wake up considering Basil is the best alarm clock ever? My sister and mother both have cats, but they just don’t take up the same amount of room and since I’m a stranger to them, I doubt they’ll sleep with me anyway. I’d better take lots of Tylenol PM so I can knock myself out and not be so lonely.
Sonya the other day asked if Django was always in motion, here’s the one picture I have of him when he’s not. He’s pretending he’s a cat I think.
So off I go into the great North….I just wish it was cold up there. Gotta love the midwest in Summer, hot and muggy. I stepped outside this morning and probably wouldn’t have had to take a shower the air was so damp and humid. So until another day….Toodle Pip.
