Once again I did not write a blog post while on breaks at work. I spent my working hours thinking about my banana play and coming up with no ideas. If I had picked up a pen to write, I’m sure all that would have come out was what a writing crisis I was having. I worked on cryptogram puzzles instead. On the brighter side, I solved one that had mystified me on several previous attempts.
I made a stop on the way home, but it was at a chain drugstore. There is nothing wrong with picking up needed items at such a store, I suppose, but it hardly offers the Mohawk Valley cachet I seek for a blog post. It has been a dreadfully hot day (I recently read somewhere that you should say “sweltering” instead of “very hot,” but I can’t say the day felt sweltering. At least I did not use “very” for once) and I was coated with sweat by the time I got home. Still, I got right outside with my little dog, Spunky. We did not take a walk, though. It was more of a brief business meeting. There was not a chance I was going for a run. So a Pedestrian Post or a Running Commentary was not going to happen.
Getting on the computer, I stared at a blank screen for a while. Nothing happened. I went into Drafts and looked at a couple I never finished but thought I might some day. Today is not the day. I added a couple of sentences to one. I am not displeased with either, but, well, they need work. I pondered my future as a blogger.
Then my husband Steven said that after the show we were watching was over (a re-run of Snapped, incidentally), he was getting a bowl of ice cream, would I like one? It is not a good way to meet my weight-loss goals, but as a boost to my spirits, it seemed the way to go. I said yes. That at least gave me a title. While I waited for the episode of Snapped to end and Steven to get our ice cream, I typed in the first paragraph and a half of this post. After savoring the Death By Chocolate (if they meant it literally, I would have died happy), I wrote the rest.
We’ll call this a Monday Mental Meanderings, and perhaps tomorrow I will explain exactly how I think I am ever going to meet those weight-loss goals.
