My world is a spacey, unfocused kind of place right now. I’m going through another one of my tired spells and my brain is pretty foggy. And, honestly, I’m not trying that hard to be present and focused. I’m so tired of summer and would rather just skip the rest of it. Consequently, I’m engaging in a lot of time-wasting, life-avoiding behaviors like playing games on my tablet, which just makes the spacey and unfocused worse. I wish I could break out of this cycle but apparently not enough to work at it!
Since my brain is such a blank, blah place, I thought maybe Cee’s Share Your World challenge would be a good way to get words flowing.
Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures? Definitely take the pictures! It’s funny that cameras can capture the beauty in nature because they just seem to capture the ugly in me. I am horrified whenever I see a photo of myself.
Where do you like to vacation? I like to vacation in Hawaii but, thanks to higher taxes, that’s not really feasible for us anymore. And, really, the Pacific Northwest is so beautiful, it’s hard to find the motivation to go anywhere else anyway. So, I’m going to go with the Oregon Coast. I love the wide open space and fresh air of the ocean and I prefer beaches that are cool enough to visit fully clothed and interesting enough to explore. Those flat, sandy beaches littered with sunbathers on beach towels look really boring to me. I’ll take our cool, windy, rocky Pacific Northwest beaches over those hot, sandy ones any day!
If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?
My brain is so foggy I can’t even keep track of my children. It took me until after 11:00 this morning to remember that Michael went to work today. I thought he was in his room sleeping all this time. I even made him an egg for breakfast!
List at least five favorite first names. For boys, I obviously like traditional names, like Michael and Daniel, since that’s what I named my sons. For girls, I’ve always liked nature names, like Willow, Raven or Rowan. I always wished I had a tree name.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week I was so grateful that baseball season is finally over. I enjoyed having the time to bake gluten-free cookies and zucchini bread. This week I’m looking forward to more of the same. I’d like to try out a few Paleo recipes, since the CFS protocol I’m reading about recommends the Paleo or Stone Age Diet.
