Song: “Music Box Dancer” by Frank Mills
Just a quick post tonight… today was a decent day. I slept alright last night and only remember waking up three times worrying about things; all three times just looking at my phone was enough for me to go back to sleep.
It took me a while to figure out where I was this morning, and after I got up, I looked out the window and saw… snow. It wasn’t a lot – just a bit that had settled on the grass – but it was enough to make me grumble a bit while I had breakfast.
It was cold out today, too. It’s interesting how -5C can seem like a summer day when it’s the middle of the winter, but when it’s supposed to be +7 or +10C, it feels like the deepest, coldest crevasse in the coldest, darkest part of Antarctica.
I kept busy again today and did played around some more with designing and printing stuff. I had a fair amount of trouble chasing ghosts today but I was still able to get some stuff done. The radio played “Music Box Dancer” three times today.
My mom called today and we had a brief chat. Sounds like my folks are coming in for a visit on Sunday. I’m not sure of the timings or what’s planned yet, but it will be very good to see them again!
J called from out of the blue today, which was a pleasant surprise. We didn’t talk for very long but it was good to hear from her during the day. She started in on a new class this evening so she didn’t get home until late in the evening. We still had some time to watch some Brooklyn Nine-Nine, though!
It sounds like FA is going to come over on Friday – I am very much looking forward to that, regardless of whether we hang out and talk, play board games, go to the hardware store, or whatever. I am also very interested to hear how her conference went.
I have a bad habit of buying things for my various hobbies and then being afraid to use them, lest I break them or I can’t find them anymore or what I want to do doesn’t work out. The thing is, I bought all that stuff for the express purpose of using it, not having it sit in a drawer for years. I have decided that I am going to start using this stuff, and if it breaks, then… well, I guess I will have learned something. I rummaged around the house this evening and found at least most of the Raspberry Pi and other SBCs that I have sitting around the house (there are more than I expected).
Tomorrow I will call the clinic again to see if I can get in and see Dr H; other than that, I want to sit down with my thinking paper and a pencil and start coming up with things I want to make. Sowbug season is just about to start around here, so some manner of bug trap/zapper/squisher might be interesting to think about. Hmm…
