The other day I had a minute to sit in Sbux and read the local paper.
Gotta love the headline:
So among the very useful tips to beat the winter blahs are: eat at a Mexican restaurant to trick your mind, wear brighter colours and get plenty of sleep.
If only I could!!! Ok, I can do a coloured scarf and I can eat Mexican and love it, but the sleep…
Let me tell you why I can’t sleep around here. It’s because there are gun shots going off in my house all night and it’s been happening for a month now. The gun shots are the noises that the floor makes as the planks crack down the seams and separate.
I know. I KNOW!!! Can you believe the nightmare this floor has become? The trouble is that not only are the planks separating along the seams but occasionally the seam won’t give way and the actual plank tears, as in this next pic. Some gaps are now about 2mm, while others are slimmer, but the whole edge is rough and catches on socks, stockings and cat hair. There is no way to sweep up the floor now and I’m worried that dirt and dust will start to accumulate within the floor because, after all, we live here!
So these days I’m trying to function on about 4-5 hours of sleep, but still, there’s lovely morning sun in my bedroom…
And wonderful people watching around town.
Get a load of those feet!!!
Fantastic parks with snow capped mountains and forests to hike around in.
And, if all else fails, there’s always cookies.
Here is a brilliant article someone posted to my FB today. Got to get rid of the stress and start meditating again.
