all a person wants to do is to come home and take their shoes off, pour a beverage, wrap a blanket around their shoulders, cross their legs so their pet can lay on their lap and rest their chin on their hand and stare into the computer.
Maybe read some blogs or just surf around in a daze.
Maybe you prefer to read a book.
I still read.
In fact I MUST read before I can fall to sleep every night. Sometimes it's just a page but I gotta read. I also usually listen to a book on CD in my car as I go to and from work.
I used to be addicted to buying books.
Then I discovered that I could just drive 7 blocks from my house to the library and get them for free! Sure, I could walk. In fact I do plan on walking. As soon as it's not so cold. And it can't be icy. I can't risk falling and breaking something. God, that sounds like a really old person talking! But even if I just broke my wrist it would hinder my ability to do my job. Gotta have that paycheck. So I won't be walking when there's ice. Maybe if there's snow and if it's not too windy. I might get an earache. I suppose I just need to get a good hat. Maybe one of those cute funny ones that looks like a sock monkey. I planned on walking last summer but it was always SO hot out. Some days were pretty nice but then I always waited until the last minute and had to drive quickly down before they closed. Besides, if I walk anywhere I feel really weird without a dog. Whenever I see people walking I think, Ah, you poor person. Why don't you have a dog? You need dog. Can't you have a dog? I think those thoughts most times but sometimes when I'm having a really bad day and I'm angry at the world, I think - What's wrong with you! Why don't you have a dog? which is a horrible thing to think. Maybe they are very caring people and they work all the time except when they are walking and they feel like they wouldn't have time for a dog. But if ya got time to walk, ya got time for a dog.
If I was walking it would be with a dog and that dog would be Blue. But Blue isn't someone you could tuck under your coat when you get there.
OK, so if not Blue, then at least Ruby...she needs to lose some weight. I've been measuring out her food but she's hit a plateau. I guess I need to ask them if I can bring a small dog inside with me sometime.
Of course if it's too cold, Ruby would need a coat. She's pretty awkward in coats. I got her an adorable Woolrich one a few years back, I Velcro'd her into it and she tried to walk and then tried to roll over and ended up like a June-bug on her back.
People laughed at her. She just laid there, staring up a me with the dirtiest look. "How could you do this to me?"
So I didn't make her wear it again.
So maybe I'll wait for Spring to walk Ruby down there.
So, I've stopped buying books. Except maybe some discounted ones on Amazon or at Goodwill for 88 cents. I've gotten some great books at Goodwill. But as far as actually buying one full price? Nope, I don't do it.
Then a while back at Target I saw this book "Maru".
I've seen the YouTube videos. I love that cat. And I love the decor of his home in the background.
The best of 2 worlds. An adorable cat and design ideas.
I had to buy it.
Are you like that too? I mean do you watch a movie and ignore the plot and stare at the decor. Reverse it back and pause it to get a better look at the room. Or maybe it's just me.
Anyway I love this cat and I wish my floor were so spotless and shiny.
So, What IS the point to this long RAMBLE?
the last Maru video.....
