I got a grand total of two hours of sleep last night. Not because I couldn’t go to sleep but because I couldn’t stay asleep. My pets kept waking me up. Poptart in particular was restless last night, and when he finally settled down, Mister tagged in and decided it was his turn to keep me awake. Our air conditioner is on the fritz and so it’s freaking hot in our house (it topped out at 101 yesterday, though it didn’t get over 85 in our house because we are well shaded) so the pets aren’t taking it well. I’ll call the company that installed the air conditioner later on and tell them to come look at it, but it might take them awhile. Unlike in the South where one cannot live without AC, it’s perfectly doable here. Not ideal, but doable. Anyway, my brain isn’t working right now, but I’ll give these the good ol’ college try. As usual, head over to Melanie’s blog for the questions without answers, to see other people’s answers, or to participate if you want to.
What did you learn the hard way? Way too many things to list. The one thing that comes to mind is “nice is different than good.” The first minute and a half of this clip…
Which activities make you lose track of time? Any time I get started with Photoshop. Though I don’t do a lot of clipping and pasting in Photoshop, I do try to tweak things. I’ve been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 lately and taking screenshots in that game, which is just as beautiful as Skyrim, is… interesting. It has what’s called a photo mode so I can frame the shot and add filters and such. But I’d rather use Photoshop for post processing. Being able to move the camera around freely is neat. Anyway, this is my latest foray into Photoshop.
Why do we seem to think of others the most after they’re gone? Do we? A person barely crosses my mind once they’ve left my life. I mean, yeah, I have memories and will think of them now and again, but once someone is in the past, that’s basically where they stay.
Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first? I have no idea what this means. The sky is blue. That’s a fact that is true. There’s no reason to challenge it.
Please feel free to share your gratitude with everyone! We can all use a boost in spirits from time to time! It’s Doug’s birthday today. He feels old at 53. Ha! I’ll be 55 this year (in August). There was a time when I thought I’d be dead by 55 because of the life I was living. I was living with out direction, and my health was getting worse by the minute. But then I meet Doug and he changed my life forever. He’s my sunshine.
But talk about feeling old. I had this song stuck in my head this morning and thought to myself, some people wouldn’t understand this one… it was before cell phones. Ha!
