Sometimes, ya just gotta take a break.
I didn’t plan it that way. It just sort of happened.
In the last several weeks, I’ve not spent much time working on my blogs or web pages other than a new blog, On Climate, where I now have 7 posts.
I’ve been reading quite a bit. Besides a reading a lot of material on climate change, I’m on my ninth novel — three separate fantasy trilogies. But for the internet and computers, I would be spending a lot more of my retirement time with my nose in a book — like I have been lately. Two of the trilogies are rereads — excellent entertainment that doesn’t cost anything except that I couldn’t find the final book of one of them, the one that I’m reading now, so bought a replacement.
I’ve also been hitting the gym pretty heavily. The one category of blog posts that I’ve been keeping up with is the Wednesday Weigh-In. For some reason, it has helped with the motivation that I was lacking in trying to get fit. I am now spending 2 hours a day working out at the gym and have been making steady progress.
With a little warmer weather, I’ve been building storage shelving in the second floor of my at this point unheated and not yet finished shop.
Procrastinating like usual, I’m just now getting our taxes done. Fortunately, our taxes this year are not going to be the horror that last year’s Taxes, Bloody Taxes were. In fact, we paid so much in state taxes last year that, for the first time in several years, we can actually itemize deductions on the federal return. Even though I said last year, “future years should be relatively painless,” it’s still been a bit of a pain digging up all of the deductions. However, despite my tendency to procrastinate, the return is almost done and we didn’t need a tax specialist like last year.
I plan to be back posting on a more regualar basis, but….
