random bits

Quiet Early Morning
  • this week is LONG.  the transition back to sitting at my desk and dealing with the public.  leaving in the dark and arriving home in the dark.  rain. all the time.  brutal.  have to say I am looking forward to the weekend with far more anticipation than normal.
  • the fact that I am gone during all the daylight hours is proving to be a challenge with my 365 project.  last night I had a bit of revelation.  I will use my iphone to take pictures during these dark days... surely I can find something interesting and innocuous.  the project is a reflection of my days.  I spend 4 long days at work.  once i reconciled myself to that idea.... the possibilities are opening up.
  • going back to work also through a kink in our daily walk in the am routine.  which means I have to readjust to exercise in the evenings.  let me tell you last night was a chore.  dragged my sorry self out of a comfortable seat in front of the fireplace.  but, once I was upstairs and doing the work.... I was happy to be there.  I am completely focused on my goal of 10 chin ups.  That is not going to happen if I slack off.
  • do I sound like I am complaining.... I don't mean to.  I am adjusting.  It is slow work.
  • Sunday we have the Blessing of the Waters service at the river.  It is one of my most favourite things we do as orthodox .... all I have to say is that it better not be raining.  last year it was bitter cold.  so cold my eyes watered and I could not focus my camera properly.  but, I will take cold over wet any day.  any time.
  • happy mid week to you.

my one consolation during this dreary dark wet time of year is that the days are slowly slowly getting longer, one minute more of daylight at a time. patience and endurance. bleh.

Seems like everyone I know is having a hard time readjusting after the holidays and/or various illnesses. Our house is no exception. And oh yes the rain and the dark...when the winter solstice passed I was glad to see the back of it....
