In keeping with the theme this week, here are 3 random things I’m thinking about . . .
- Traffic on my morning commute. This is not something I normally ever think about, however, there is some road work happening that is creating a detour on to the roads that I drive to and from work. It’s not a big deal but yesterday it added 6 minutes to my drive time and, to say that I was annoyed would be an understatement. All this really means is that I need to remember to be grateful for the super easy drive to work I have been making for the past 22 years.
- I am itching to garden. It’s still a little soon but the urge is SO STRONG right now. I want to plant some new ground phlox and I’ve got dahlia tubers that I ordered last fall that arrived the other day and more. The smart thing to do right now would be to work on the bed by the deck because I’ve been neglecting it for years (and it shows) but the fun thing to do would be to plant.new.things.
- Paul Simon. I am listening to Miracle and Wonder thanks to Bonny and Kym’s hearty recommendations and it is a delight. I’m fascinated by Simon’s career and also by the fact that he can’t remember when he wrote many of his early songs. You’d think, if you wrote hits like Bridge Over Troubled Water and The Sounds of Silence that it would have been a light bulb moment that would stick in your head but that’s just not the case here. If you have 5 hours to spare I highly recommend this audiobook and I don’t think you will be disappinted.
And that’s all for me this Thursday. If you wrote a post for today (and most of you don’t do this anymore so I’m seriously considering dropping the inlinkz thing [hint: it’s not free] next time it comes up for renewal) please add your link below.
