Tuesday Has No Feel

According to the character “Newman” on the old Seinfeld show, Tuesday has no feel. So far I am in agreement with him. I stayed up till 1:30 AM last night and was actually enjoying the time. I would have stayed up longer but I got tired. When I woke up around 8:00 AM I was feeling pretty good so I got out of bed. I enjoy late nights and early morning. Both are peaceful times of day. Last night I listened to some new music and occupied myself with simple activities. This morning I went outside and walked to the end of the drive for my morning paper while coffee brewed in the kitchen. After a simple breakfast I settled into my chair and read the news. I am upset about all the senseless violence in the world. The tragedy that occurred yesterday with the Amish children is further proof that none of us are truly safe in today’s world. At some point around mid morning, I felt a little sleepy so I reclined on my couch. Big mistake! The next thing I know it was noon. Now I am awake once again, showered, and knee deep in laundry.

Once again it is late night. I couldn’t go to bed without cleaning up the kitchen and loading the dishwasher. It has been a non descript day. I feel like I napped all afternoon. Occasionally the buzzer on the dryer would wake me up and I would start a new cycle of washing and drying. Tomorrow will be a better day. I am going to Chloe’s daycare to pick her up so she can spend the afternoon at my house. Later we’ll have dinner somewhere before taking her home. Before I pick up Chloe I am going to visit the silversmith/jewelry shop of a friend of mine who is also a former monk. Like many people I have always been on a search for the perfect ring. Since my friend is also an artist, I am hoping he can take some of my ideas and create something for me.

After the weekend I had, this has been a boring couple of days. Normally I would enjoy the leisure and “nothingness” but for some reason I have been restless and very lethargic. My mind is going in a lot of places these days so perhaps that is the root of my discontent. I haven’t felt like this in quite a while. I am not troubled by mood swings. I have been through enough of them in my life to know they come and they go. I believe my mood will be lightened by Chloe’s visit. When she is around I am not so self absorbed. Another downer this week has been the summer like weather. We have the A/C on because of it. The weatherman says that fall like weather will return on Thursday but he also said it wouldn’t rain at the Rolling Stones concert.
