Today has been too busy to study details. My six month old great-grandson woke up at 8am and decided he didn’t need a nap today. He dozed in spite of himself while we were in the truck on the way to and from the grocery store, a total of 15 minutes in our small town. He wasn’t demanding attention the whole time, he never does, but the simple fact that he was awake meant my concentration was limited.
I worked on a guest blog post for Lara Britt of Writing Space. She had asked for a piece on my travels through Nowhere, USA. Look for it on Tuesday, maybe not this Tuesday, but some Tuesday. In fact, go by her space every Tuesday, or any other day. It’s a great blog.
Between the baby and grocery shopping, it took all day to finish writing and find the photos to go with it. Now, I need to go heat up some barbecue and grilled beans for dinner. My stones today have been the kind that roll under your foot as you are trekking through the woods and make you grab for the nearest branch to keep from falling. Some days are just like that.
Tomorrow should be better. The baby’s mother doesn’t have to work, only go to two classes with an hour break between. I’ll only have him from 10am or so until about 3pm instead of all day. Oh, I also need to go to the Social Security office and DMV. That should give me plenty of time to be contemplative. Waiting in line is always an exercise in patience.
