Today is always relative. You had yesterday and you’ll have tomorrow.
Lately, though, my “Today” is off. I do work for a company on Tuesday evenings. I start Tuesday evening, and I finish Wednesday evening. So it’s been for years – until – just a few weeks ago. They needed it done sooner, so I start earlier on Monday evening, and get through both parts by Tuesday morning.
So now, it’s Tuesday, but I think it’s Wednesday. Today is Wednesday and I think it’s Thursday. And I don’t mean just a little side thought. Last week, I put the trash out two days early. I called me wife today and she mentioned dinner and I said, “Oh, we’re going to that Food Truck thing at the park” and she said “That’s tomorrow.”
Talk about routines and getting stuck in one! The bonus is that each time I get corrected, I remember I have an extra day to get stuff done before the weekend and that’s always a plus.
Vacation next week in the Outer Banks. (1) I never go on vacations as my previous job barely allowed for major holidays off much less vacations, (2) Outer Banks – What?!? Sun and Surf – that’s crazy talk. I heard there is a hot tub, so sign me up.
Everything is moving along at a steady pace right now. I haven’t written in my journal lately. I mostly use that medium for handwriting practice since I always had the worst handwriting. It’s better now – I just need to keep at it.
I started listening to a good book about The Power of Forgetting – but it’s an audio book and he keeps asking me to refer to image 23 or diagram 14, etc. I guess if you bought the audio version of the book it has a PDF. I loaned it from the library, so I don’t have that. The author teaches you ways to clear your mind and think faster. I’ll look for the printed version.
Worked a craft show over the weekend with my wife. She sells embroidered items. It was a fun day outside but slow customer-wise. You can tell it’s slow when the free balloon guy isn’t tying any balloons. Still, always good to see other crafters. The rain started moments after the show ended and we were packed up, so a terrific day.
We watched “Won’t you be my neighbor” on Amazon. Wow – Fred Rogers was the best. I watched him always as a kid and didn’t know many of his accomplishments. He’s one of the reasons PBS was launched.
Check it out when you can – it’s informative (and touching for those of us who grew up watching him)
