Prompt: Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?
One of those days that it's raining, I did my walk, and now I am ready to go back to bed. Yes, I am that pathetic today. Zzzzz. Oh, right, blog. Ahem.
On the "I did do SOMETHING front", I cleaned the table off in my craft room, and the writing/typing desk. It is clear, now. Before I break my arm in four places patting myself on the back, that still doesn't remove the umpteen boxes that are in the corner of the room, and the stacks of magazines that I need to go through and sort to see which I keep and which I get rid of.
That's not even mentioning the basket I have stashed in the bedroom because I kept tripping on it in the craft room, and was afraid I was going to break, destroy, or otherwise damage... (the basket, not me...)
But, heck and half, it is a start. I can see the table AND desk again! For me, that's actually pretty good.
Now I just need to find a way to want to go through the boxes. My biggest problem, I have stacked them in such a way, I need a pole, to poke at them, so I don't have them fall on me. They aren't stacked REAL high, but since I have various sharp things, heavy things, and glass things, I prefer not having said things land on my FOOT!
Blah, blah, blah. I know, do the Nike thing...
But first. Something...
My friend has provided great perspective on the world over the course of several years. He has shown me that moving is fun. (Mostly... Sometimes he has to really encourage me, but most days I agree.) He has given me laughter, especially when he is willing to do something silly, just to do it, not because he's worried about how he'll look, or whether it's a problem to someone else. Albeit, that can create some minor annoyances, but we sometimes just both agree to look the other way. He's proven that you don't need to spend a lot to do well, backing down is something you should do sparingly, unless it's the right person, and that a happy grin can do a lot.
I love my dog...
