A day late, but with good reason. My internet has been intermittent – which meant another of those oh-so-rewarding calls with tech support which ended with them deciding I needed a new modem. It’s due today, but the old one has decided to do its job, for now at least. In the meantime, I was using my phone as my hotspot for the important stuff – you know, email and Facebook. But, having a limit that results in my speed having it’s head cut off if I exceed it, made me want to be cautious. This incident has proved, once again, that I rely on internet far too much. Anyway, since it’s working now, I decided it was time to share my little part of the world.
What are you reading right now? The Fifteen Lives of Harry August, but slowly because apparently I’m not much in the mood for reading this week. Probably, stupidly, too busy fretting about iffy internet and the state of the world.
What was your first adult job? Not sure what defines when I became an adult. When I was in business school I worked part-time at a theater, either as cashier or concession stand attendant. In those days, we had both. Our local theater now does not have a designated cashier, you buy your ticket and refreshments if you want any at the concession counter. Once I got out of business school, I became a secretary for an insurance agent.
What’s your favorite breakfast cereal? I rarely eat breakfast cereal, but if I were to decide I wanted some it would either be my homemade granola or Honey-Nut Cheerios. Nowadays, if I have anything to eat in the morning, it’s toast in the late morning. Toast made with my homemade French Herb Bread. Giving myself pats on my back today, although they’re not really deserved because I use a breadmaker to make the dough.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Ummm. I did smile a couple times, at Shasta’s antics out in the snow, at a cat video on Facebook, at a friend plowing the snow from my driveway. But mostly, the news inspired my anger and frustration at the way of the world. An example of that is the painting below that expressed how I think the world feels.
But then there is another painting that is much more peaceful.
