The plan for today

Seeing as this morning is a perfect Fall morning with a light steady rain and a cool breeze that is reminiscent of the impending season, this is my list fortoday so I am not distracted to do other sorts of things that i would rather do on this kind of day.
-Appointment at the dentist office at 910
-then come home and grab a drink and come up to your workspace
open the tree report and write more on the west side
open a powerpoint and get the layout of the presentation
make graphs of basal area and comparing the number of trees per mile in each side
Please refer to this when you get distracted. Because I know you will.
BEcause your alarm went off this morning at 7:30 and you were in bed til 8:20 just looking out the window and taking deep breaths of that cool air.
Get a move on babe, life awaits.

Open your eyes

Overwhelming feelings tend to make me delirious
so oblivious to the real, cruel, harsh, unkindness of life.
One day when I'm old I will realize this,
but now,
now all I can think about is the changing future.
The brand new day with brand new sights
the brand new routes to work, the brand new routine
all settling into a comfortable normal
interspersed with the occasional surprise
and unexpected randomness that life always does bring.
Honestly love, I can't wait to live that life with you.
I know I'm sounding naive and too hopeful
and I feel that way too.
How else can I be if I have yet to be around you more than a few short nights at a time.
Trust me love, it will be difficult
I will be difficult, you will be impossible.
I will make mistakes, you will forget.
I know all this, but I'm waiting to share it
with you.

Just some Babble

There are times when it really hits me hard
the bass shakes me from inside out
the beat begins and i have to find my breath
the rhythm of life seems so take me over
takes me for a ride while i sit and watch
the haunting melody forces me to close my eyes
enjoy the ride
like a drug induced high
with merely a recognition
that life is bigger than me.
my song continues building
in anticipation of the notes that complete the chords.

Once again...

Being productive in all areas but work.
Made dinner. Well, I made too much lunch....I thought the ratio for rice was 1c. rice for 2c. water. nope. other way around.
Started some laundry.
Went to the doctors. I get to have a nerve conduction study done. electrical zaps! fun!)
Apparently the ulna in my right wrist is a little longer than the other bone and that might be causing my "discomfort." I think she thinks I'm batshit crazy. All my symptoms are everywhere.
OO, I'm making the double chocolate chip cookies again. They were awesome last time I made them.

The rain cooled it off a lot here. It's prolly only 85 here now! Crap. Which means I don't have an excuse for not counting trees. Dang.
