The opera, the Mercury Retrograde, and the weather.
I have done nothing this week but work. I will do nothing next week but work. This does not make for a interesting blog.
Most everything I have ordered, for the opera and myself, recently has had some kind of enormous snafu- backordered until the next millennium or lost in shipment or, get this: the company is so behind processing return/exchanges they won’t get to mine for another 3 weeks. They haven’t even opened the box.
I know, from experience, the best activities for a Mercury Retrograde are things like: cleaning closets, finding receipts for my taxes, recycling, and chucking out useless stuff. I really do need to reorganize my spices and I’m itching to clean out all those little nooks where cat hair lurks. One of my closets is about to reach Fibber McGee and Molly status. I would love to be taking care of those things right now. I would be doing those things but I have dress rehearsals this week.
It’s been soooo cold, I feel like I’ve been living in a cave- my curtains are closed, crevasses have been blocked, and the cats and I are huddling under the down comforter. Going out is a quick sprint from the house to the car. I have been wearing gloves with mittens over them and my fingers are numb before I can even flip the heat on in the car.
Today it was finally warm enough to go out for a walk. Sunny and breezy and the fresh air was wonderful….. while it lasted. It’s supposed to snow tomorrow.
