It Was a Good Day

Yesterday (May 12, 2021) was a good day. Here’s why I thought it was a good day:

  • I was productive at work, meaning there were some projects that took focus, some creativity, thinking outside of the little box I’m in. I felt I actually accomplished something useful for the Company and maybe I actually earned my keep for the day.
  • I did not take a nap at the end of the work day. For the past several weeks, maybe even the past few months, I’ve laid down at the end of the work day to ‘rest’ and read a book. Usually I drift off to sleep and wake up after 7:00 pm. Then, I say to myself, “what’s the point of doing anything productive now since it is so late in the evening”, so I just go back to bed and wonder through the You Tube wasteland. But last night, I finished a book, Take My With You by Catherine Ryan Hyde and then went to the Comic Book store, to the Auto Parts store and then to Lowes. When back home, I drank a few beers, wrote a few blog posts, scanned some images, started a new book, Hope Is A Verb by Amy Downs, moved a computer workstation to a new location and then laid down to go to bed. So, it was a productive evening. And, I’m thankful for that.

At Lowes, I bought five bags of cement and three pressure treated 2x4x8 for the “yard containment” project.

At the Comic Book store I bought:

  • V.E. Schwab Extra Ordinary #00 (Titan Comics)
  • Batman Detective #2 (DC)
  • Eros/Psyche #3 (Ablaze)
  • Vampirella v Purgatori #3 (Dynamite)

I walked into the Auto Parts store to buy a quart of motor oil for the Honda. While looking at the array of different oils I could not decide on what I needed. Then, I remembered that I have a jug of motor oil at home that I bought (maybe) two years ago when I was excited about changing the oil in the Honda. But, I never changed the oil with the new oil that I bought. Once I remembered that, I walked out. Why buy new oil when there’s oil at the house.

I was thankful for the good day. Good days are hard to find anymore, lately, it seems.
