Tired

I forgot to write a post last night, so I’m catching up this morning. Today (Friday) is the last day before we re-open. I am super-great at procrastinating and denial, so I’ve been doing lots and lots of jobs around the building, but meanwhile, my room is the last thing to get ready. I spent a good chunk of yesterday afternoon just trying to put away all the stuff that has been sitting out on tables for months. My reasoning was that it was pointless to put it away if I was going to need it, so the contents of my cabinets have been out for a loooooong time.

Today’s mission is to finish putting it all away, and then try to catch up with my coworkers regarding planning. Ask me how much I have planned. The answer is really, really tiny. All I have so far is to teach the “COVID Bummer” song that I’m sure will sweep the nation. The lyrics are endlessly writable.

I gotta wear a mask! (She's gotta wear a mask!)
I can't hug my friends. (I can't hug my friends!)
Stay six feet back! (Stay six feet back!)
And that's a COVID bummer! (Bummerbummerbummerbummer!)

Wish me luck. "I gotta clean my room!".......

Mystery solved!

Mystery solved!

Out in my tiny garden, there have been some mysterious holes. When I first noticed them, I thought they might be vole holes, or maybe snake holes? Maybe toad holes? Giant spiders? I tried looking inside with a flashlight, and gently poking with a stick, but I didn’t want to poke a giant spider snake […]

A delicious disaster

A delicious disaster

I reaSomewhere online I read people’s replies to, “What recipe have you made during this pandemic that you’ll keep in your regular rotation?” Someone said that they take leftover mashed potatoes, mix them with an egg and some cheese, then cook them in a waffle iron. That sounded fascinating! I made potatoes specifically for this. […]

Two days of sorting.

Two days of sorting.

The Center’s basement is 99.9% done, and it’s all thanks to Lloyd (and Gracen). I think I’ve purchased all the shelves in Nebraska. Let’s recall what it looked like before the next round of cleaning began: The basement has had so, so much stuff just dropped off in it, along with the things were left […]

I just love shelves!

I just love shelves!

One blessing from this whole COVID mess is that little jobs around the Center that have made me grumble for months or years are finally getting some attention. I don’t have photos of all the projects, but I’ve put up some shelving from Home Depot and Sam’s Club. (Also, I just want to say how […]

Puzzling puzzle piece

Puzzling puzzle piece

I’ve finished my third puzzle. I swapped puzzles with a friend, and have also had some others loan me their puzzles. I think they know something about my destiny that I don’t. In a couple of years, a bomb is going to need to be diffused and it will only be possible by putting hundred […]
