Daily Reflections From My Window

January 8, 2022 Saturday: Get Back to Fiber!


“I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”

Jerome K. Jerome

Sunrise 7:39 AM

Does the sun seem to be getting up later and later? I don’t blame it. Brr! But Mr. Sun, we depend on you to warm things up. Like Barney and the gang sang “🎶 Oh, Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, please Shine down on me!” 🎶 Are you humming? I was looking for a funny quote today about certain subjects. Jay says I’m getting too serious. I agree. It’s spilling over into everything and it’s awful. I came across a few, but the one above, about work, made ME laugh. I love to work. I do. Lately though I look at it-at all of the fiber, emails in my inbox, my the papers to go through and projects in my WIP pile and just look at it. Once I choose somewhere to start, watch out. It’s the peril of working from home and getting out of my routine. Just one step, and I’ll be back. I’d fire me if I was the boss! Here’s my work crew, yawning into the day.

One step back to my routine is just turning the tv on for a bit for the background noise. Yesterday I had the Today Show on and there was a doc on explaining the differences between the rapid Covid test and the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test. I’ve been confused, but this doc explained it in a way that I won’t forget. She explained that the rapid test will tell you when you are in the active phase and contagious, and the PCR will tell you when the virus is in your system and continues to detect it long after you are contagious, thus making it difficult to detect when you should be out of quarantine. That was a good explanation but when the interviewer asked why the PCR test would still detect the virus when you aren’t contagious, she answered, “because the PCR is so friggin’ sensitive!” Did I just hear that? Now I understand and will probably never forget. It cracked me up. Sometimes, it’s not what you say, but how you say it. Now I know why some places accept the rapid test. Where can you buy them locally?

These are my thoughts today. They took a while to get together.

As usual, I’m exploring the idea of not posting this to FB or social and relying on those of you who would actually subscribe to my nothing. It’s an avenue of income. There ya go. If enough of you subscribe, and read, I get a monetary compensation. It’s that simple. I’m still working on migrating to another site. Takes time and focus. The life of a struggling artist trying to make a living doing what I love. I have to be better at that. 2022 is my year to focus on it and stop worrying about the world. Can we REALLY change anything? I think we can! I need to work on that and be kinder, that helps. I have a relative who just throws everything to the wind and just doesn’t worry about a thing. I want to be like her. From now on, I’m going to try to post only funny quotes, or ones that make me smile. Time to lighten the mood!

Here’s more of what I woke up to. It doesn’t get much better than this. Glittering snow, a fire red sky, then shadows from the sun is absolutely stunning! If I haven’t gotten back to you, by message or email, I will. I’m cleaning my inbox and am finding things that got lost between so many emails that I haven’t needed. Sorry!

In the meantime, do something you’ve never done before. Find your passion and explore it. Every single day is a gift. I’m off to clean a closet!

Have a blessed day!
