Also, the soundtrack is pretty fun. There’s a tinge of 80’s nostalgia everywhere, which gives the series a very odd feel. Part Sci-Fi, part magic realism, part nostaliga. I feel like they spent a small fortune on the rights to use all these songs.
Despite not doing much house work this week, it’s been fairly busy for me since… about last week. I’ve been working a lot in the evenings on work work, and even on the weekends. When I do feel like I’ve caught up enough, I’ll just choose to sit in bed and play games on my phone, as a way of relaxing. For that small window, when I don’t feel like I have anything pressing I need to attend to, it’s been nice.
“I make it to the bus, not a second to spare
But there’s freeze-frame traffic till the intersection where
I am scheduled for a meeting with a man who looks like Harrison Ford”
“First day of February,
and in the far corner of the yard
the Adirondack chair,
blown over by the wind at Christmas,
is still on its back,”
Today, we planned an early breakfast at Roister as our last hurrah, before the diet begins. And afterwards, we’d go shopping to get a week’s supply of healthier food, as we plan on ordering out much less and cooking for ourselves much more.
A few days ago, I noticed that I wasn’t able to set a song to “repeat” on Spotify. I had recently added the album “Rosa” by Luísa Sobral, and have been listening to Só Um Beijo with pretty alarming regularity.
I know this is someone looking to give away some Christmas decorations, but a part of me likes imagining someone creating a special shrine – as a way of invoking the season to remain, despite the days.
Did someone get hurt? Are they ok? Did they decide they no longer needed the wheelchair, or that it was more hassle than it was worth? So many questions.
For those that aren’t bunny owners, a rabbit flopping on their side is an indicator of comfort and ease. It’s a rare thing to see, and something they typically only do when they feel contented and safe. As their caretakers, Liz and I always feel great whenever we can catch one of them flopped over on their side.
I realize now how taken I was by Salvador’s voice in “Amar Pelos Dois.” But it’s really the music that’s captivated me more, and Luísa is the songwriter. It’s her work that has so ensorcelled me and I’m excited to explore more of her music on her album, “Rosa.”
He’s got a lot of regular meds (he suffers from E cuniculi), but he also has some extra meds to help with a cold he recently contracted. And on Sundays, he’s got an extra one that kind of takes his meds over the top.
This is a view of our living room, after we moved the bed out. Taken last night, this is where we had dinner around 10:30 PM. Which totally felt weird, because we’re used to eating dinner in bed, while watching TV. It actually looks like a normal room, now.
The master bedroom has been totally reworked, since that time. From the early days before I knew how to demo a wall, to having all the walls removed on the second floor, to pulling up the floor… this room has really been rebuilt.
Looking back, I don’t know how effective of a manager I was. I think I did some things well. And I know for sure I did some things badly. And I have a very specific list of things I would absolutely change, were I to do it all over again.
