Watching Ti-ime Slip Away

This might be the year for distraction.

I planned to write something about Downton Abby and what’s going on in the economy right now.

First I talked to Mom.  For an hour.  She makes me laugh.  We talked about hooking up/shacking up, and the changing face of society, and divorce, and Texas, and driving in a snowstorm.  We could have talked longer, but her arm hurt, and my ear got sore.

Wrestler #2 texted me to let me know his mother-in-law is back in the hospitol.  Oh no!

DeeDee texted me an urgent request to research re-occurring strep infections.

Plus, I must fit in some time to find a good copy-editor and incorporate some suggestions from my beta readers.

So, here’s some fun stuff I did yesterday.  It’s kind of sciencey… well, experimenty.

I blew some bubbles in the sub-zero weather and watched them freeze.

That was fun.

A friend told me she threw some boiling water outside and it froze instantly.  So I gave that a try with some tea, so I could see the color.

Oh snap!  That’s no good.  Now I have a dirty sidewalk.  I hate messes.

That reminds me.  I forgot to meditate this morning.

Yup.  This is the year for distraction.

Maybe I’ll sit in front of a fire and read a book this afternoon.

By the way, if you know a good copy editor, please leave a comment.  Or tell me what’s going on in your neck of the woods today.  I kinda like going with the flow.  Oops!  Here comes Ducky’s hubby.  He needs help finding his watch.

    Sounds like the loveliest of days. I love those kind of days, it’s just at the end of the day when I’m looking back on what I’ve accomplished of my essential tasks planned for that day, I draw a blank – but it makes me smile.

      It was a lovely day, once I relaxed into it. You started my day off with lots of laughs.

      All that research into strep and turns out baby DeeDee just ate too much popcorn. Stomach ache and scratchy throat due to popcorn. Put that in your database, WebMD.

  2. That was funny. Oh, how I can relate to the distractions. I might try that frozen tea thing. 🙂

      Today is warmer, only -9! Try boiling hot tea. Evaporation and freezing at the same time is part of the trick. Please let me know if it works.

      I used the colored bubbles and the standard wand. If it gets cold again, which the meteorologists are promising it will, I will get out my giant bubble wand and home-made bubble-juice. Stay tuned. In the meantime, I’m making soup and staying inside.
