Song: “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer
My day didn’t get off to a great start. A nightmare (tent) woke me up this morning right around the time J was getting up. I sat hunched over on the side of the bed while she talked to me and rubbed my back, then held on to me for a while until I calmed down. I know I’ve said this many, many times, but she makes so many things so much better so often.
After a while I managed to get back to sleep and got up a while later. I then spent a few hours vacillating between searching the house for my phone and telling myself that it was fine, I didn’t need to have it with me all the time. I guess I’m more attached to that thing than I thought, because I found myself firing up my computer to look something up or grabbing a calculator to do some figuring a lot more than I expected. I eventually found it after lunch, under the bed. No idea how it got there – usually when it goes missing it’s between/under couch cushions or under a pile of stuff in the basement.
Outside the whole phone thing, I worked on a lot of things today but found myself flitting between tasks/hobbies/projects to the point where I got almost nothing done. It may have been because of the morning or whatever, but I just couldn’t focus on any one thing for more than 15 or 20 minutes.
I did get the antenna cleaned up and painted, though. I wanted to paint it white but couldn’t find the white paint so I painted it black. Of course, as soon as I had it half painted I found the white paint, but I think it looks ok in black. Now I just need to figure out a stand for it and how to put a connector on it.
While I was outside looking for paint, J got home and came outside. I set up the hose to soak the garden and grabbed another chair from the shed and we sat outside and enjoyed the breeze in the shade and talked about our days.
I also spent more time playing with the SDR and found more interesting stuff. I also did some writing and gave some more thought to my display cabling problem.
J and I didn’t watch any TV this evening either but we hung out while tinkering with our various hobbies.
I don’t have any appointments tomorrow, so assuming I can keep my brain pointing at the same thing for long enough, I would like to finish some stuff. We’ll see how it goes.
