The Bad and the Waaay Good

Beard Papa in Redwood City closed, some months ago.

That’s the first bad thing.

Let’s see, what else?

    Lawn still looks lousy, even after hubby augmented with all kinds of fertilizer. Perhaps, dear blog readers, we were never meant to have a lawn?
    Now, this minute, self is huuungry!! But, in keeping with her resolutions for the day, self is refusing to poke her nose into the fridge to hunt up a snack. No! Instead, self will exercise extreme discipline and self control! By refusing to let any comestible, not even a crumb, not even a nibble, pass between her lips until hubby gets home! At 8 p.m.! Let’s just see if she can do it!

As for the good, here it is, and it is big:

    Self wrote today. Without interruption. And at the end of the day, she decided she might as well mail out what she’d written. And she managed to make it to the post office, 10 minutes before five.
    Moreover, when self suspended the writing to look through her mail, she saw that her retirement accounts are slowly creeping up in value again. Not, of course, to the levels they were last year, but in this economy, any upward movement is most welcome.
    And, finally, the book self is reading, Arabian Sands, is very very very good. How good? So good that self stayed up until 3 a.m. this morning, reading.

Which brings us back to the bad stuff because, of course, since self had only three and a half hours sleep, her eyebags today are tremendous. Strangely, she began the morning feeling tired, but as the day progressed she grew more and more energetic. Now, she’s simply bursting with good vibes!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.

  1. Well, there’s one in New York! On the Upper West Side, near 73rd or 74th, Broadway or Columbus. I think there’s more than one in Manhattan, in fact. Closer to you!

    How’s Vermont? Beautiful?
