A Do Nothing Day

Posted in Life with tags , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2012 by urbannight

Yesterday was a “Do Nothing Day”.

I was completely unproductive. 

I played a little Star Wars: The Old Republic or SWTOR, pronounced kinda like the word ‘Sweater’.  I also played some Alpha Centauri and Sims 2.

I played Words w/ Friends and Bubble Witch.

I watched a lot of Netflix:

Episode 3, Season 2, Sherlock

The final episode of Sliders.

A family films called ‘The Good Witch’.  It was very cute and very sweet and several parts were very underdone. 

5 or 6 episodes of SeaQuest, I admit, I lost count.

An episode of the original Star Trek.

While watching all this t.v., I worked on a big stitching project. 

I ate some food in there.  But cooking was minimal.  Heating pre-cooked bacon in the microwave and heating Easy Mac in the same.  Oh, I reheated left over pasta too. 

I said it was a do nothing day.  Today, I’m researching Crow Indians.  It will be a bit more productive.

Because it was too fun!

strewth! I just got slapped with a wet salmon – really – I have not updated this since you last visited… You would not believe how terribly tardy the Victorian internet can be. I prostrate myself in sorrow and beg thy forgiveness..

I am lost in a sea of pseudo-olde-english with learning to play lawn bowls, being distracted by the shiny, just generally being asleep, dreaming and chancing to anyone unfortunate to cross my path, my day is a nightmare I would like to wake up from mid-morning to sun down and beyond. I am plotting and planning. perchance.

I swear on the bones of my ancestors to send a missive out on the wire, post-haste. Fully! Unless of course the pool with the cocktail bar is heated!.

40 Days of moving

I had a checklist for the weekend. I scheduled in my fun stuff as well as my packing stuff.

Yet now that it is Monday, and I look at my weekend check list, the only things checked off are the fun things.

I didn’t get much done. I did get a total of 6 boxes of books packed.

This did NOT make a dent in my book collection. Although one bookshelf IS starting to look a little bare.

So that means I’ll have to focus on it during the week. I have to be ready to move on to next weekend’s check list on Friday.

I may not have enough boxes. But at least I know a person who owns a book store. She is keeping book boxes for me. Which is perfect. The maximum sized box to pack books without becoming too heavy.

I am stronger than I look. I’m used to moving book boxes. But some people don’t realize just how heavy a box of paper can get. They use boxes a little too big and regret it.

I also was supposed to sort clothing. That was not touched. Books or clothes? What to do tonight? Clothes could be easier, but the tubs take up more room than the book boxes.

I go to help with the roommates moving on Friday. I’ll have a lot more boxes after that. It will be a good thing.

In the meantime, I’ll try to clean out my car so I can fill it with the boxes I have ready to go. That will free up some space for more box stacking later on.

I probably shouldn’t have watched seasons one and two of a cool anime show back to back all weekend. It wasn’t so bad on Saturday. I watched an episode, I packed a box. I watched an episode, I reorganized. I repeated that pattern for 6 boxes.

It was Sunday that got me. Over slept. Went for a long walk. Took a hot bath. Watched shows while eating lunch. Then alergies kicked in and I didn’t want to move the rest of the day.

I have to get a move on it. I have to stop worrying about getting to far ahead to early. The result was getting behind at the very start. I want it to be kept in balance.
