I gotta tell ya, I’ve been tired this week. I got about 15 hours of overnight sleep, and I had three naps, one so long and hard, I slobbered and snored. BUT! I must admit, it’s been a pleasant week. Despite early mornings and excessive driving, I feel *whispers* almost sweet. Not Nice Lady Blog sweet, and not all the way sweet, but kinda sweet. And tired. In my own voice, I would say I is tarrrrred.
I’ve had lovely interchanges with the other humans. I’ve gone to peopling places quite a bit and PEOPLE HAVE BEEN NICE. Nice receptionists, nice clerks, nice parents, nice strangers in line. Even people on the phone have been nice.
I don’t know how long this will last. I’m hoping it’s a trend.
Maybe when temperatures dropped Hoosiers were just so happy to porch sit and sleep with open windows, they could not help but cast their happiness upon others.
This week, my darkest moment of despair was that I couldn’t find the bacon in the Aldi they’re renovating. But then I found it! It was all okay!
Even social media has been brighter this week. I was cheered by posts about cuckoo clocks, excess kittens, children’s peace flags — and everything on Instagram was about ten times prettier this week. I LIKE TO LOOK AT PRETTY THINGS.
My parents have been working hard days on the hurricane damage, and then at night, they have odd, makeshift meals with their neighbors. Lots of generosity of spirit and teamwork. My mother’s evening updates provide that dose of faith in humanity we’re always looking for.
It’s a reminder that good things emerge from bad things.
I spoke to Mentor the other night and told her I missed her cause she was like the sun. She said she missed me, the smiley Eskimo. I suspect we will both carry these tributes with warm fuzzy feelings, but not add them to our resumes.
The Mister is ever so dreamy. I don’t think he likes to say no to me. Like, he actually says no a lot, but then he yesses.
Of course, I say, “Don’t boss me around. And do it while you look down my shirt.”
It’s gonna be a good weekend.
Happy Friday Everyone!
