Dining – This week we met friends for breakfast. It was our first time since the pandemic started. I was leery but the very few diners (we went at the crack of dawn) were spaced very far apart. I felt safe but I would not have done that without the vaccine. My craving for pancakes has been sated.
Adjustments – I have never been good at lingering at the table after a meal but I am much worse now. Don’t know why but it just is. I have a 90 minute butt and that’s all it can take sitting in one spot. All these months of no socialization (the beloved husband doesn’t count because he doesn’t talk much) have taken their toll. I thought I’d get overly chatty but it seems the opposite. I still enjoyed the company. That too has been sated.
Scope creep – This is a real thing. It happens on everything I touch. It’s like painting a wall and realizing that made everything else look dingy. I’ve decided to repaint the staircase trim so it’s not a blazing bright white. You won’t need sunglasses to look at it anymore but staircase trim is not my favorite project. It’s not like a wall which you do in large swaths. This is done with a tiny trim brush! Maybe I should get therapy. Do they have sessions for people prone to scope creep? Is this considered a medical condition?
Teasing – The weather has been odd. Some days really nice and some really cold. On the nice days, I have things scheduled so I can’t enjoy the great outdoors. I still haven’t investigated the local trails. My sneaks are itching to go.
Weird things – I would never jump out of my car and keep it running to go into a store even for a short errand. I find that people do that at Starbucks all the time. Sometimes they are gone longer than a few minutes. It may be low risk for theft but I wouldn’t do it would you?
So how was your week?
