Happy Friday, Y’all. It’s been a draining work week and I’m glad to see it coming to a close. My Fridays in the office have a palpable feeling of impending escape. They’re lighter than the other four days in the clink. Is it the same with you?
It’s Mother’s Day weekend. Unlike many of this holiday’s images I see in media where mom gets breakfast in bed and a macaroni necklace or something, I won’t be celebrating that way. I kinda hate Mother’s Day, for no rational reason other than it seems forced. It’s a weird manufactured pressure to tell someone something. I see it in the same way that many do Valentine’s Day. What can I say, I’m a curmudgeon.
We’ve got thunderstorms rolling our way for the weekend. That’s a bummer since I have been enjoying getting back into the swing of day-tripping on the bike. If I’m not already traveling and making the best of a rainy day, I”m less inclined to venture out from home to spend the day riding in it.
If I end up homebound, maybe I’ll be able to finish up some of the 200+ drafts that are sitting in my blog’s Drafts folder. Some of them are just a few pictures, some are rambling thoughts or snippets of ideas, and some need to go right into the trash. It feels like there is always some kind of digital cleaning to do. Invariably when I do tidy up around here, I’ll rediscover some dusty post and think – I like that one. Maybe when I find those a “re-run” post is in order to call back old stuff. I dunno.
Hope you have a nice weekend in your part of the universe.
