Nothing Riveting

The Logical Heart Knows Best

The wind is howling and shaking the windows. It always reminds me of a scary movie or haunted house sounds. Today my activities were more well-rounded. I did everything I’d planned. I even remembered to check the mail! Only junk mail, blah. The postal service is running behind on their deliveries. I ordered an inhaler medication by mail and expected it to get here in time for my breathing test, but it may not. I was trying to avoid going to the pharmacy to limit my outings because of covid. Oh well.

I loved drawing today. It’s so gratifying to watch the images materialize with each pencil stroke. I enjoy blending and softening the drawings with my fingers. I’m doing small sketches on a 6 by 9 pad. I plan to do more tomorrow too.

I listened to a book called Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire, I’ve got 20 mins left in it. It’s wildly imaginative, I love it! While I listened, I did my PT. Then I took a quick bath because it was time to blog.

Today flew by as well. I’ve been feeling freer after putting that red tape I had to deal with behind me. I wonder how I will handle the return of the everyday stressors when we go back to more normalcy after the pandemic. I fear that I’ve grown too accustomed to this peacefulness and will be intolerant of the cacophony of the world. Will it be like culture shock?

I miss visiting with the kids in person, museums, live performances, and travel. I miss seeing people’s smiles in person and hugs. I would be content to work from home and remain sheltered in peace. I don’t want to go back to what I was doing before the pandemic.

We watched an exquisite movie called Melancholia last night. It’s been so wonderful watching all these movies. I wonder what we’ll watch tonight.

I have nothing riveting to write about. I used up my creativity earlier, lol. It’s the home stretch now. Twelve more days left in this year of daily blogging challenge. The closer I get to the finish line, the harder it is to blog.

Life has become so simple, quiet, and solitary in this wintertime. Feeling grateful to be cozy and warm indoors. Now it’s movie time! I’m so ready to get in bed and rest.
