You think too much!
I have been told more than once that I think too much. I was incredulous the first time I was told this...can a person think too much? It seems to me that the world is filled with people that don't think enough.
But, I'm beginning to agree with that opinion. I do think too much. I waste hours and hours of valuable time in dreamy non-productive thought each weekend. Beginning on Thursday I make plans for the weekend. Productive, art and activity filled plans. But the weekend arrives and I sleep late. I peruse the books and magazines I don't have time to read during the week. I saunter from room to room puttering aimlessly, never finishing most tasks. I watch my Netflix rentals. I sit and play on the internet too much. Before I know it...well here I am...it is Sunday evening and I haven't done much of anything AGAIN! Will I ever be able to change? I'll think about it.
I did do something productive yesterday. All because I have stupid feet, wide and flat. I spent my lunch hour Friday trying on every pair of shoes in a large shoe store. Nada. I went out again yesterday. Desperate, I guess. I did find a pair of flip flops and pair of brown sandals that I can wear for work or casual. Only time will tell if they are comfortable or not since it is easy to be fooled when you only walk up and down the aisle a couple of times at the store.
Does anyone need abut 10 pairs of perfectly nice shoes that hurt my feet?
I try not to go off too much on the weekends (it cuts into my thinking time). Since I have to drive about 55 miles round trip each day to work and back, I like the idea that there are 2 days a week when I don't have to feed my gas tank. Does anyone remember when gas cost this much? Sad to be nostalgic about gas that costs $3.08 isn't it?
I did a little doodling last night and came up with these two pictures. I scanned a sketch and added color in Photoshop. I really like playing with a drawing that way. It's a type of creative serendipity. You never know what you're gonna wind up with.
and another version:
I have been summoned for jury duty this week. I've never done it before so it should be interesting. I am looking forward to seeing new people, maybe hearing some new stories, being downtown. I'll take some pictures and get some reading done too. I hear that I might spend a couple of days waiting to be called for a trial. Oh well, I guess I'll get some more thinking done.
Happy week friends!
