The Cold and the Brrrrrrrful
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. No, it's not. It's cold and windy and if there was a cloud in the sky I'd bet on snow, no matter what local history and the weather channel say. We're talking COLD.
Given Mother Nature's attempts to turn us all into icicles, though, I decided to go domestic and make a big pot of potato soup for dinner. MC was happy - he's a big soup lover any time of year, and when it's like this it's a double goodie in his book.
Other than that, today was a semi-wasted day for me. I put in another job application, then spent the rest of the day pretending I was a kept woman who could afford to wander through stores and such. I didn't buy anything except a Target gift card for my daughter-in-law's baby shower, but it was nice just to take my time and not have to worry about having to hurry because my lunch hour was almost over, etc.
The job application resulted in a test scheduled for next Tuesday evening, so maybe I'll get something out of it. I wouldn't mind; this is for a part-time job, three or four days a week, doing bookkeeping and billing for the fire department's ambulance service. Pay's decent, and that would give me enough time free to do more web stuff.
I am working tonight on one of my customers' sites so guess I should really do that instead of putzing around on Diaryland and on IM. But dang it, it was nice to have a few minutes to actually chat tonight!
I also gotta shower and get my hair dry before I pass out. And considering how long it takes my hair to dry now that it's longer, I guess I'd better get to it.
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
