I am suffering from a little bit of writer’s block today. I think because I used all my brain power at work this week.
I spent most of my week researching a solution for a problem at work and then figuring out how to convince my project team to move in that direction. Our meeting is tomorrow, so right now, I am in wait and see mode. However, it took a lot of my brain to figure out what we should do in the first place so I am short right now on specific topics.
Lots of random thoughts in my head right now.
I am really happy that my garden in all planted. I put the okra seeds in yesterday and now, I just have to water and fertilize and wait. I really watching things grow so I am excited to keep this garden going on all summer. I think for me, that gardening has been one of the ways that I really practice patience. It takes a while for veggies to really start to produce so there is a lot of watching and waiting. And this year, I added flowers that are showing me that even if they don’t look like much in the store, they can bloom pretty. After a only a week, they are just getting more blooms each day and just making me so happy.
I finished a class at work this week on impactful communication. I think it will help me be better structured in meetings at work and might even help here. But I am really happy it is over and I no longer have to focus on it. Finishing it and making sure I passed were really stressing me out.
I reorganized my sock drawer yesterday because my sock collection has gotten a little out of hand. I now have over 25 pairs of different colored socks. I think this is my new rebellion. In my 20s, it was crazy artificial nails. In my 30s, it was purple hair. and now, it is socks. Lots and lots of socks. (I tell myself it is ok because every time I buy a pair, a pair gets donated to a homeless shelter. You can check them out if you want at Bombas) The funny part is, that most of the time, I am the only person who really sees my socks because they are mostly hidden by my shoes. But I know that the socks I am wearing are matching my shirt and that is the important part for me. This is one of those perfectionist quirks that I like about myself. 🙂
Today, Flirt is going to start obedience training. This is one of those things that was waiting until I was vaccinated. I am hoping we both can become more confident when around people and we will be better bonded when we are done. I am pretty excited for it.
Best news of all is that my parents are here in town and they are here for the summer. Excited to spend time with them after way too much time apart.
Well, I guess that is all the randomness I have for the week. I hope you enjoyed it and it maybe brought a smile to your face. Or maybe you can sympathize with my current sock craziness. Or if you got nothing, then I wish you a week of smiles!
