But on to more important things. The light’s on because it’s cold and dark, as usual. We’re having an arctic summer, which figures, since we got a new blow-up pool. I think the last really hot day was early June, high temps in the 70s this week, rain every day, and on Friday it only reaches the 60s. Don’t we all just love weather? Actually I’m thinking this is what summers are like in Scotland, and I’d rather think of it as a Scottish summer, so don’t disillusion me.
I made great progress on the never-ending revisions, enough so that the end of revising might be in sight, praise god. I’ve got to check on business stuff (every Monday morning) but then I can get back to work, and I’m into it.
I’m running into trouble with my screen time again. I was awake till after one playing solitaire, damn it. I’m thinking maybe don’t do the iPad in bed (I go up early but I do my Danish, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, Pinterest, and surfing, plus watching videos). Gotta stop that, but Richie comes to bed and uses his iPad too and it’s a nice time. Maybe I’ll limit what I allow myself to do. Pinterest can kill hours, but right now I’m really into it, with organization ideas, sewing, heroes and heroines, current books. Jenny has a board for her books as well – it’s fun and inspiring.
Shit, here comes the rain again. Speaking of music (who sang that song? Without the “shit” – trivia question) I’ve been going through my old (I’m talking about late ’60s early ’70s) music. I’ll tell you about that later.
In the meantime, work beckons, and that’s what this week is about. Work – I’m going to get some business stuff sorted and then, dammit, I will finish the revisions on this sucker and soar on into the future.
So what’s on your agenda? Who are you listening to right now? We had a jazz service at church and the prelude was a John Coltrane number with a very good local saxophone player, and it was so good I went to Spotify this morning and opened John Coltrane music. Are you guys listening to anything good – I want to know. I love country music and opera, rock, folk, standards, hey,even some rap. Not to mention Japanese, french and Danish music.
So tell me what you’re listening to. And what are you doing this week of Scottish summer?
Oh, that’s All About You in Danish – I hit 180 straight days in my studies.
