Doodads — 5/3/2020

What a beautiful day it was outside.  The back yard is polka-dotted with dandelions that sprung out overnight.  The grass is summer lush.  The rabbits are chasing each other.  The chipmunks have re-dug their hole between the sections of concrete under the bird feeder.  The frogs have a heavenly chorus going on out there.  The tomato cage I put on upside down over the deer’s favorite oriental lilies was missing this morning.  The only conclusion I can draw is that one of them got it stuck on their horns and is now walking around with it.  I saw my first spear of asparagus emerged about an inch out of the ground.

My kids and I played a game through Steam today that lasted 8.5 hours!  My eyes are so tired right now.

I didn’t get to listen to many SLS songs today.  No other writing was done today.  Very little blog reading was done.  I did get a small amount done on the collage I’m working on, earlier this morning.

Time to rest my eyes.  See you all tomorrow!

      My kids grew up just as gaming was taking off. They’ve gotten very, VERY good at it. I dabble at it and they, being the kind-hearted individuals they are, indulge me. What’s really awesome to me is that their significant others play also, which makes it so much fun.

      1. I wasa very briefly into one called Civilisation before I met my wife. It’s a kind-of world domination strategy game. It was turn-based and you’d end up thinking “just one more turn before bed”! When I met my wife, she caught it and I couldn’t get near the computer after that! But it was actually quite scary, how I could just lose a whole day to this thing. I have a soccer manager sim now but I only maybe touch it if I find nothing on tv of an evening.

          I write and read away the hours –too many hours — but take liberal breaks in between to do other stuff. Late night = movies/tv series binging.

      Either that or someone driving by needed a tomato cage!

    Yeah, I was picturing that too–cage stuck on antlers. The other deer would look at him admiringly, thinking, “Where can I get one of those?” 🙂
