The first time I smell fresh cut grass each spring, it always puts me in a good mood.
It’s a nice reminder that spring is really here, and it’s even better if I wasn’t the one cutting the grass.
After smelling cut grass for the first time this year, it got me thinking about how several ordinary items can make me happy, so I am listing a few of them here to see if any of you agree. Continue reading “Fresh cut grass, new butter and other ordinary items that are actually fun and exciting”
Too often people talk about procrastinating as if it’s a bad thing.
Sure, there are good aspects to finishing projects quickly, but there are also numerous positives related to delaying your work.
Often when I am supposed to be doing something like completing a work project, cleaning the living room or tying my shoes, I get interrupted by important thoughts that must be pondered. I see this as a positive example of prioritizing. Continue reading “A few words in support of procrastination”
After two weeks without posting anything, I would like to take some responsibility and offer an explanation.
It’s not my fault.
Thank you. I felt I needed to get that off of my chest. I do have a few reasons for not posting for a while, though, along with a few thoughts on not writing. Continue reading “It’s not right to not write”
Every Who down in Whoville liked the time change a lot.
But the Nick who lived in Ohio certainly did not!
The Nick hated the time change! The whole time change season.
Now please don’t ask why! No one knows exactly the reason.
It could be perhaps, that his clocks wound too tight,
It could just be that he never adjusted them right.
But I think the most likely reason you can keep,
Is that the Nick was a person who wanted to sleep.

While going through a drive-thru with my son recently, we discovered the restaurant is now encouraging customers to place their orders through the apps on their phones and then pick up their food at the drive-thru.
Now this may sound like nifty new technology, but I don’t think it would actually save you any time or make the process any easier. All you had to do before was talk into a giant menu and they got the food ready for you quickly while you waited in the drive-thru. It was simple and fast.
By ordering through the app on your phone, you have to open the app, hope your phone doesn’t freeze, scroll through to put in your order, type in words that will be autocorrected to the wrong words and then still wait in the same drive-thru line to pick up your order. How is this an improvement? Continue reading “Modern technology is amazing, wonderful, and sometimes stupid”
It sure was windy in the last week. How windy? I’m glad you asked.
It was so windy that:
- An English nanny landed on our roof.
- I saw some children at the park flying a cat.
- I threw a Frisbee to Indiana.
- I nearly broke my windbreaker.
- I was worried that the Christmas lights on my house might get knocked down.

Last week was a bad week.
I won’t go into it right now because you know how I hate to talk about myself, but trust me, things kept going wrong and it put me in a rotten mood.
As I struggled to get into a better frame of mind, I took note of my coping mechanisms in order to share them with you here. I guess you could call me a hero. Continue reading “How I deal with a bad mood!”
