Monday Meanders 1-16-12, Photo365 - Day 16


I wish I could count. I'm supposed to have an I.Q. somewhere in the high 140's and yet I find myself constantly going back and editing, changing, and otherwise modifying published posts because I can't count the number of days since I started Photo365. Maybe it's the ADD. There is the fact that publishing a photo a day means that, for January anyway, the DATE should give me a clue. You'd think .... Wait!! Something shiny !!!

I said the Giants would win. They won. I said the New Orleans would not win. They lost. All of that said, I have no more opinions about playoff football. It's 33 days until pitchers and catchers report. As a Cubs fan, I am steeling myself for a season of re-building, losing, frustration, and unfulfilled expectations. I also expect it to be a lot of fun watching the kids play - the kids they've got now - the kids that will grow into the players they will build around going forward. It's going to be hard - but it's going to be fun.

I really love our Keurig machine. So do my nerves. Does anyone besides me know that people who drink a lot of coffee and people who smoke (I do not) are often self-medicating to beat the symptoms of ADD? Not consciously, I might add - it's just an instinctive response.

The picture, below, is Day 16 of Photo365. Park benches never look more vacant than they do in snow.

Park benches in snow DO look more vacant, don't they?

Chas self-medicates with coffee. Every morning before school. It helps him to be still and focussed. Seems to be working, he just got accepted to the RAF cadets. He's got a couple of very smart uniforms and a beret with "RAF" on. He is learning the principles of flight as well as other scarier stuff. I am trying not to freak out. Happy New Year Lou!!

I'd like to think that the benches are hibernating and thinking about the wonderfully sunny days in their past and yet to come. We love our Keurig too - just upgraded to a commercial model with a larger reservoir. Awesome!

We got a Keurig a while back and we love it. We love it even more now that Starbuck's is in the game. It was great during the holidays. No more family grousing that our coffee is too strong.

Everything looks vacant in snow, I think.

A Keurig sounds like something awful you get wired up to in the cancer ward! Never heard of one! My partner lives on coffee, despite it giving him stomach trouble that he takes a heap of pills for. I can take it or leave it- currently I leave all of it due to some tablets I must take that are incompatible with coffee anyway.
I have the opposite of ADD- I am PAJ= Pretty Attentive & Jumpy!

I love my Keurig machine too... Though I hate the plastic cups and the waste. Must be my inner hippie chick/flower child.

Now, I'm ready for baseball too. I'm done with the cold and snow.

I have no football predictions either... I have not been 'following' the playoffs as much as I have been espousing opinion...

The lonely park bench... awaiting bird feeders, old men and their friends, and lovers taking in the beauty of the spring...
