Geez, I don’t get on here much any more.
Busy times for busy lives I guess.
Part of my lack of blogging really has more to do with how much writing I’m doing at work. I’ve turned into a documentarian. Everything that comes up ends up with a question – “Has this been documented?”
And then I create a fantastic, thorough, extensive working documents……which then nobody reads.
Repeat this process daily about three or four times a day, then it can be seen how blogging has lost some magic. That, and there’s nothing really exciting going on.
I feel somewhat obliged to provide a picture of my “sad” trees. It’s freezing here, and the ice is weighting everything down.
I had asked my lawn guy multiple times (since they also do construction) to tear down the arbor above my back patio. I’ve been pestering him on and off for about two months now, they’ve had to push it back several times. It’s about to fall down and I was afraid of the first freeze/snow/ice that it would be too weighted down. Yes, it’s propped up by boards. It’s got some lean….some might say my porch has swagger.
It looks somewhat better camouflaged by sad bushes though:
There’s also an opossum or raccoon that has occupied my attic which is somewhat disconcerting.
I did do something that I haven’t ever really done seriously: Karaoke
We were out on the town and decided to hit a local watering (boozing) hole (and hole-in-the-wall) and do some sang-ing.
My range sucks. And my song choices are strange too. I choose less on what I think I can sing than what kind of risk I’m taking on performing it.
I started with this, and it didn’t go badly:
I think I followed it up with some Huey Lewis and the News, Billy Idol, Stray Cats and a crowd favorite:
I don’t have much to add except it was fun.
