Blog-ish – April 16, 2021

Both of you following my ramblings recall at the end of March I suggested events, planned and unplanned, would keep me away from the keyboard.  Two weeks later, one out-of-state commitment remains.  One left that I know of anyway.  Could be more.  More, I’m thinking at this point would be good for long-anticipated relocation plans.  Then again, you never know what life is going to snooker you into doing.

Writing and travel do not work well together for me.  My laptop travels well.  My creativity does not.  Inconveniences of travel make me something less than comfortable at the keyboard whether creating or reading.  Interruptions, whim-of-the-moment scheduling, irregular hours, and only the briefest minutes of privacy discourage even reading to stay current.

To date there has been a good deal of travel.  More to come.

At home, in the brief lull between travels concluded and the next journey, while trying to take care of home chores and log some decent snooze-time, I’ve tried to catch-up on reading.  Formidable task.  Put off trying to post to focus on catch-up.  Still, I’m confident I’ve missed some of your posts.  Likely, I’ll see what I’ve missed when I read back in archives – something I do frequently anyway. 

Posts from me for yet the next several days will be thin.  Not to worry.  Leave that to me.  Thinking I had a few hours I could spend writing to post today, I found it difficult to focus.  Thoughts that I would be interrupted I suspect the reason for that.

To those of you who expressed concern over my absence I say, “Thank you, and be assured we are fine.”

With what I think is an hour or so left before the evening’s festivities kick-off, I think I’ll take a look at where we must pick up with “Claxbury Corners.”

Or maybe I’ll go outside.  Water the new grass and flowers.  See if it’ll be okay to drop the deck on the mower or leave it high because travel will interfere with giving the lawn a good snip when it needs it.

Be careful out there, kiddies.

  1. My it is a pleasure reading your fine words SP. I appreciate you thinking of us and letting us know. It’s grand to hear you’re fine, first and foremost, then your plans and relocation, which sounds jolly good I’d say. Take good care and enjoy. All’s well in the Spanish version of the blogosphere. Stay well my friend,

  2. Good to hear from you again SP. You take care though, and very best of luck with those relocation plans. At our age it’s not so much about the work-life balance it’s more about the life-life balance. Blog at your own convenience and don’t feel pressured into doing it for us readers.

    1. Thanks for looking in. Pressure always come from me. Feel I let folks down. Guess maybe that’s a bit of ego there, assuming more than what really is.

  3. Keep well Sir and I keep my fingers crossed that all goes well with your relocation plans. And don‘t worry about us, your avid readers: we‘ll be here whenever you’re ready.

  4. I am glad to see you posting again; I was wondering where you were

    We will leave the porch light on for you.

    1. As a younger man I loved travel. Anymore, it’s a royal pain. Thanks for your comment. A few more must-dos before I can settle back in to full activity on WP.
