Bullets of too tired to write more

  • My birch tree is being devoured by Japanese beetles. They are practically swarming. The leaves have been reduced to lace and are scattering over the lawn.
  • What is happening to le Tour de France? I nearly drove off the road on my way home from work when I heard about Rasmussen and Vinokourov on NPR. What on earth...
  • Construction has commenced! The hallway and linen closet have been framed in. Siding is in the driveway. Wow.
  • I finally started training my replacement at work today, which means that I may get to assume some of the tasks that go with my new position someday soon.
  • Things are so unsettled at work right now. Practically every week things change. It's a bit stressful.
  • I've been rereading A Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L'Engle. She is one of my all-time favorite authors. I find her writing so inspiring.
  • As a result, I've been journaling again. I had stopped journaling in my spiral notebooks altogether since the break up with FF. I'd dumped so much into them during that time that I had negative associations with the whole concept. It feels good to be journaling again. It was something that I let slide during much of our relationship, so it feels good to regain the things that matter to me.
  • I continue to meet my weekly goal of a minimum of two walks per weekend. In fact, I exceeded it by one walk this week. Go me!

The Tour de France is breaking my heart this year. Vino was one of my all-time favorites, too...

Yay walking. Yay journalling.

Boo druggers and blood dopers at Tour de France.

Yay construction. Boo issues at work. Yay training replacement.

Good luck with it all.
