Last week I finished reading Gretchin Rubin’s The Happiness Project and now I am deeply involved in Jonathan Haidt’s The Happiness Hypothesis and I went to the new Victoria theater in Blossburg and saw the movie Social Network and today the plumber was here all day installing a new kitchen sink and faucet.
And last week I also started a new meditation streak and tonight I start a new series of Meditative Posture Flow yoga and this weekend I am teaching a workshop on How-to-Meditate called: Meditation: It’s Not What You Think.
Oh, and leaves! I almost forgot about the leaves! Raked leaves yesterday.
Love raking leaves!!! So much more fun than shoveling snow! So much lighter, crispier, drier, warmer! Leaves! Yesss! Snow! No! And today the big sucker machine came and sucked them all up: thwoop!
And speaking of suck, my vacuum doesn’t. So it does. I put out a request on Facebook for vacuum suggestions and holy comment stream! 35 people weighed in on vacuums. I clearly hit a nerve. Nothing I have ever written on FB has gotten such a response. People are inordinately in love with their Dysons, that’s all I have to say. (People: You and your Dyson’s should get a room. Srsly.)
And Lowes opened in Mansfield and I like home improvement stores (not as much as bookstores and office supply stores and Starbucks, but I do like them, even though I don’t understand most of the stuff. (For e.g. Dremmels.) But tile and carpet and red washing machines are pretty, for sure. And certain wood. And certain plumbing. And the maze of sample kitchens that I always get lost in.
That’s what I’ve been doing, more or less when I’ve not been writing here.
Oh, oil. Forgot about the oil. Oh well, I’ll leave that for tomorrow.
