Cool but clear, sunny and warmer later. I hope, because yesterday up north was like that and I want more. Spring is here, and it’s too short.
Slept in to 8am yesterday, after going to bed early. Unfortunately, I’m awake at the 5 hour mark out of habit, and had only fitful dozing after that. Still, dozing in bed is not bad…
Got up and did some cleaning and more cleaning, and a bit of auction stuff online. Met three new neighbors while out in the yard and garden. I didn’t want to start any big projects or do anything that could go wrong. And anyway, an early boss once told me “if you have nothing else to do, clean.” Working in a kitchen, that was good advice. I had a later boss, while working as a carpenter in a shop, tell me he never wanted to see me cleaning. ( I was the highest paid guy in the shop.) He wanted me doing tool maintenance or shop improvements, ie ‘extras’ outside my normal work. Either bit of advice is good advice depending on the situation. Yesterday I cleaned.
Another drive home and some catching up online, and I was good to go for the coming week.
I have to do some focusing on basics this week. NEED to get to the store and fill a couple more buckets. I have also been running down my stocks of OTC supplements that I take daily, because there haven’t been any great sales. I really need to build those supplies back up and pretty quickly. I wasn’t paying attention. I don’t have a formal inventory system. And I didn’t look closely for too long a period.
I’ve been neglecting my ebay stuff too. Sold two items over the weekend, and they need to ship. A whole bunch of new items need to list too. And of course, I’ve got to get the next set of bins to my local auctioneers. Getting the BOL together is more sexy fun than listing, or sorting, but it won’t pay the bills.
Normal life stuff happening right now includes- car repairs, dr visits, jury duty summons, and all the normal ‘domestic bliss’ stuff that piles up.
Add the ever increasing likelihood of expanding the conflict with Russia, rumbles of food and diesel shortages here at home, and all the falling skies, and it’s all we can do do keep running in place. Can’t stop for a minute without falling behind.
Keep improving your position. Keep stacking. Don’t lose sight of the goal.
(and shout out to Harold Combs, who DID unplug, at least so far, and for a while…)
