“Yawn. What Bores You?” This was yesterday’s prompt but I left the computer early yesterday and like this better than todays: “What’s the longest time you’ve ever been away from your favourite person” Ha!
I rarely ever get bored but I did yell out “This is boring!” trying to watch a movie called “A Most Wanted Man”. I kept running it back because I wasn’t paying attention to the dialogue then realized, it’s not me….. this is boring.
That happened again when I was watching Billions. Every time they started talking about stocks and numbers my mind would go elsewhere. But I stuck with it because I like Paul Giamatti. I found you don’t really have to pay attention to the numbers so it’s OK, the story line looks good.
Chit Chat bores the hell out of me. I don’t like small talk or chatting on the phone. (At least on the phone I can roll my eyes.) The answering machine gets anything important. Texting is so much better than talking. Say what you’ve got to say and no more than necessary, please.
I have a part-time job and with it being January I’m only getting 2 or 3 shifts a week but that’s perfect. I always have things to do here; things I have to do and things I want to do. I do housework for a couple of hours then relax and/or walk (if I’m not working of course) in the afternoon.
My ex-husband used to say “You sure can entertain yourself”. So true! My mom used to say, “Learn to enjoy your own company”. Hmmm. May be some mixed messages there but it still worked out well for me. I live alone and enjoy doing whatever I want… within my work schedule and budget.
I maintain and add to my landscaping in the spring and summer. In the Fall I put away firewood that I have delivered in September. January to March I work on jigsaw puzzles to get the afternoon sun as it comes back up. Getting that sun is crucial to mental health, I’m taking Vit. D now and trying to catch any afternoon rays which have been few and weak.
Today is sunny and I’m working 3:00 to 9:00. I’ll do some vacuuming (now that I can see how bad it is), tidy up, bring in firewood and maybe do a few pieces of the puzzle before going into work.
Tomorrow is going to be sunny and I’m not working. Oh, boy! Walk on the trail behind my house, work on the puzzle in the afternoon…… ah, life is good.
