Oh, Weekend & Snow!
Holy smoked smokes am I effective today. I rose from my burden of blankets before 8. I was awake already at 5, reading Phantom comics, switching off the bedlight again to maybe resume my slumber, then playing some Pokemon Pearl, and once again trying to catch some sleep before greeting the day. I don't think I did catch any sleep but I don't feel tired anyway. Getting up earlier than usual, I got to enjoy a much bigger breakfast than I'm accustomed to, the kind of breakfast I wish I would eat every day. A few slices bread roasted, a couple unroasted, some with butter, some with additional cheese, a couple of rice cakes with tubed shrimp and a bowl of cereal and stuff, with a current of black current jam. Of course accompanied by a steamin' cup of tea.
Since then I've read and written reviews for a couple of short stories, read another chapter about writing, read and re-reviewed a refurnished work from one of 5 Workshop allies on the Creative Writing course, written my diary entry for the day already (usually I do that when the day is over), written two 100 word entries for that site with the same name, responded to a hunk of old email and skimmed through all the usual news sites and other slices of Internetal delight and now I'm writing my first blog at fourteen hundred hours. Effectiveness comes in waves. Oh yeah. Today I'm blazing the path like a sun under magnifying glasses.
We have a guest staying with us this weekend, a cousin almost as old as my parents. She's here for a conference so we'll only be sharing meals on mornings and nights, but it's nice seeing people I haven't seen in a long time. A person. My mothers sister & Co are driving by for the day as well, stopping by for a piece of a hurriedly-baked cake, and it seems they're late. They live in a foreign location so them driving by is not just an everyday occurrence. More like every-other-year occurrence.
So how do you work? Do you get a boost of effectiveness when there's a lot going on? When the daily routine stumbles out of pace and appears varied and refreshing? When you don't have any pressuring workloads and can spend your loads of workflows as fastapaced as you wish to? Is life blissful?
Sun is shining too, and the night before yesterday the first snow of the winter fell down to coat our ground. It may be just a thin randomly balanced layer, but it's still there today. I guess we'll have snow for Halloween. A bit different, huh? Skies are blue, fresh air is tempting.... it's a bit cold in shorts though. I made an oath to myself I'd keep them till November though, so there's not much to do about it. At last I can smile inwardly at peoples strange expressions when I walk by looking fly like a chalked die. Hehe. I'll see you later.
