2.17.20 – Day 3 of 4-Day Wknd

Yesterday was The Great Thaw (one of many to come). Today it will be a balmy 46° or so. And I think the third day in a row that we’re seeing the sun 🌞. No going in to work today or tomorrow. Gotta take my car in for its second servicing and a software update. Our dog Roxy thinks she can climb trees to get at the taunting squirrels. Silly dog. So ferocious. Good times. Hope you’re all doing well and getting after it. Be good.

Watching The Irishman

Fell asleep early (just after 10) woke up early as hell (a little before 4) and couldn’t get back to sleep and eventually fired up Netflix to finally put on Scorsese’s The Irishman. One hour in and it is excellent filmmaking. The casting, acting, scripting, direction, cinematography, costuming, production . . . the whole nine. Easily The Godfather and Goodfellas of these modern times. #RuckFlix #MovieRuckus #CrimeFilmFetish

2.2.20 – Sunny B On the Road

When it’s warm enough in February to rock the sunroof 👍🏾 Coming out of 6 straight days of hidden sun, which is a tough stretch for those of us who suffer from SAD. This is a nice reprieve before next week’s stretch of gray daze 🌞 #SunnyB #TheSunshineKid #ChildOfTheSun #SunshineBear #SolBrotherNumberOne #WeatherRuckus

1.26.20 – What Is This?

Holy mother of . . . what is this great ball of fire in the sky? Is that . . . is that Sol, otherwise commonly known as The Sun . . . the solitary great star of our ever-expanding stellar system? Oh, this is glorious! I’ve been home for four days and this is the first I’ve seen of it since. What a wonderful discovery! I am the sunshine kid, so please forgive my exuberant response to such a momentous occasion 😉

1.24.20 – Sick Day #2

I wish the hawk would return to one of our trees so I could capture an image of it, though it would probably take flight before I could get the snap. I love the wild kingdom we have in our neighborhood. The hawks and owls being my favorites since I love raptors. I do miss the toads, though.

Anyway, not much change from yesterday’s weather photo snap. Such is winter in the Midwest. Consecutive days of gray overcast . . . you might mistake our region for the Pacific Northwest were it more green.

An hour ago I made breakfast for the child and I (and yes I did have my tea today). At our home I am famously the Breakfast Guy (you’d agree if you’d had my World Famous French Toast). I will stop short of saying that preparing breakfast is inherently a ‘guy thing’ but for me there’s no meal I’d rather prepare for my family. So when the rare opportunity to stay home with my youngest daughter and make breakfast for her arises, I relish it in both an instinctual and loving way.

1.23.20 – Daddy Daycare

At home with the strep thoat-stricken child today. I have administered Jello and antibiotics and offered advice regarding a boyfriend matter. Daddy daycare and advisory board, pro bono.

Aside from that I’ve not done much of anything productive today, yet I’m not really missing work. The Impeachment trial is on the tube in the background. Lunch has just arrived via The Lady of the Manor. But it’s just occured to me that I’ve not yet had any tea today. I will have to correct that at some point.

Time-Traveling on a Lazy Sunday

#NowReading Octavia Butler’s 1979 classic KINDRED. Just a little light sci-fi featuring time-travel and the antebellum South. Never forget that the late, great Octavia E. Butler is a great American treasure.

Btw, I’m known to drink 2-3 cups of tea a day. I’ve already had 3 this morning!

Have a good day, my lovelies.
