Let’s do another random Thursday, hmmmm? The first one might even be a little . . . ranty!
- It frosts my ass when drivers on the highway fail to merge for a lane closure. I was driving to a meeting yesterday and they were doing work on the highway and the left lane was closed. This was announced with a sign WAY AHEAD of the actual closure. I was already in the right hand lane so I stayed put but, to my dismay, cars continued to pass me on the left and they didn’t merge until the lane was literally closing. I think this is the equivalent of cutting in front of someone in line and, if you wouldn’t do it at the local Dunks then you shouldn’t do it on Rte 24 either. Ironically, one of the drivers who passed me was headed to the same meeting I was. I wanted to say something but I managed to hold my tongue.
- Our landscapers came this week and made our yard look terrific. It’s been pretty rough out front since we had the tree taken down last year and Dale had a bunch of loam delivered to level things out there. (I’ll just say that didn’t go well and leave it at that.) But now we’ve had more dirt delivered and it has been leveled and spread and seeded. We purchased a Kousa Dogwood and that has been planted. The beds have been freshly edged and mulch has been spread and things are looking ready for spring planting . . . which I am itching to do but need to hold off for a bit longer.
- I’ve been listening to audiobooks more frequently lately. I’ve cut back some on the podcasts I listen to and that gives me more car time for books instead. I tend to gravitate to non-fiction for audiobooks and I’ve recently listened to a great memoir, In Love by Amy Bloom and two books on race and social justice, How the Word is Passed by Clint Smith and The Sum of Us by Heather McGhee. I’m open to suggestions for more great non-fiction so feel free to tell me your favorite in the comments.
And that’s a wrap for this week’s three things. If you wrote a post for today, please add your link below.
