As I headed towards the library, I congratulated myself on having the oomph to get here and make a blog post, so my tally (by my admittedly questionable calculations) stands at three posts behind, not four (no promises about tomorrow). Then I stopped congratulating myself and remembered I probably would not be able to think of anything worthwhile to publish. I came to my own rescue by further remembering that it is Lame Post Friday. All I have to do is hit Publish, maybe first making with a couple random observations and some half-baked philosophy.
One note, and this veers into the half-baked philosophy category: while I was congratulating myself, I did NOT attempt to pat myself on the back. That’s a good way to dislocate your arm. I’ll be honest, I was not really congratulatory; I was feeling mildly pleased with myself. Since I have been spending a good portion of my time lately feeling stupid and/or useless, mildly pleased is nice. I rather enjoyed it while it lasted.
I thought I would throw in a picture to pep things up. I was looking for these sandals to wear to the library, and I could not find them. Under the heading Reasons Not To Feel Pleased With Myself. I fortunately had another pair of sandals to wear, since earlier I was wearing a new pair of shoes that made angry red marks on my heels. And that is my sandal story for the day.
Here is a random picture from my Media Library. I find it amusing. It is my friends Margaret, Kim and me rehearsing for a murder mystery. I would like to do another murder mystery soon. We shall see.
I wanted to include three pictures, so I close with this shot of our Black-Eyed Susans from last year. This year we have a lot of greenery but no blooms so far. With my garden as with my blog, I always hope for improvement.
