Decided my last bloggy was far too whiny. You people don’t need to be reading that rubbish!
Am reminding myself now that if I don’t like something about my life, I need to just buckle down and change. It’s that simple. Some questions have difficult answers, but this is not one of them, and yet I try to make it more complicated than it is because I am lazy. I like to conveniently forget that I have full responsibility for myself and my actions, and for how much I take of the world — and how much I give back.
AND SO. I am going to clean my house today. I thrive in a clean, orderly, neat house. I also need to get out of the house and go read more. Not only will this help me to appreciate my home more than I do when I laze around playing Skyrim in my PJs all day, but it will also get me out of my nice little comfortable rut where I pet cats and don’t do laundry. I’ve nearly finished Hannah Coulter (which I recommend that EVERYone read – it is amazing and has made me cry now at least twice), but I have so so sooo many more books to be reading. The Southern Festival of Books was this weekend, and Stephen and I went; he spent most of his time at a lecture, but I want to slowly peruse all of the booths and be able to take my time. It was a really lovely day – overcast and grey but sprinkling only every now and then. The only thing that could have made it more perfect was an outdoor cafe and some flowers.
So that said, in addition to cleaning up, I might hit up a coffee shop after work to do some reading. If nothing else comes up, I’m going to plan on that.
