I do not have one cohesive thought to turn into a thorough blog post. You’ll just have to settle for these things rattling around inside my brain.
I have been out for sashimi twice in one month. This isn’t really a record, just something to note. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it and how much a part of my life it used to be. Luckily we have a good restaurant within walking distance of my place.
The laces in my boots need replacing. They came with these thick laces which have a white string inside. The thing is, it isn’t a straightforward operation. There seem to be some preventative measures in place to make it difficult for me. I never thought I would see the day I needed to watch a YouTube video just so I could change the laces in something.
Winter has finally arrived. I have shoveled numerous times and been victim to the snowplow a couple of times. My students have said that they find it beautiful –but only the first time. After that, they start to ask questions that display more of their unhappiness than happiness. At least they usually shoot one or two videos for social media when they are happy.
I’ve been reading a lot during my commute. I haven’t found that diamond in the rough book yet, but I am sure I will find a great one this year sometime. I haven’t set goal for the number of books. I just want to be either entertained or informed.
This time last year, I was hastily putting together a trip to Morocco. This year, I have volunteered to teach a bunch of one to one classes after my workday normally finishes–so any trips will have to wait until after that at least. I should also save my money to pay down my mortgage. I am not currently affected by the increased rates, but that might happen in the future.
I have chosen a few irregular movies from Netflix. I don’t know if I have bad taste in movies or if I am subconsciously choosing movies that challenge the norm. Again, maybe I am trying to unearth a classic that nobody else has found. I should probably stop doing that.
I just watched An Eye for Beauty. It was a film full of beautiful scenery from the Charlevoix area of Quebec. The images were so beautiful in fact that I wanted to pack up and move there. As for the movie itself was a bit….actually, I cannot put my finger on it.
I am waiting for a few of my shows to return to the TV schedule. I wonder if some of them have been cancelled without me knowing about it. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
