Things have been a bit quiet around here lately.
On the 30th of December, last year, (isn’t it wonderful that 2021 is now ‘last year’?) my computer monitor stopped working.
It’s either the monitor, or the adapter. Parts have yet to arrive to tell which is which – stay tuned for the exciting conclusion!
I’ve been barely online using my old faithful hard drive, which thankfully I kept as a back-up, and using it to check my WordPress dashboard once a day.
So yeah, it’s not you, it’s me.
Also, at the end of they year I had a bit of a meltdown.
I was dealing with the multiple environmental disasters fairly well, I thought. But it seemed like I never had enough time to catch my breath at the end of one before the next one struck.
We live in an old house, and stuff keeps on breaking down. Stuff broke down, in the middle of an arctic outflow, with daytime temperatures in the double digits below freezing. (we now have our very own electrician on speed-dial)
Some health stuff happened too. The concussion … aren’t they fun? .. I didn’t have time to catch my breath there either.
… and then … and then … you get the picture.
I kept saying I wanted a break, for the world to stop for a while. You know that feeling, where you just want to get off for a while?
I cried a lot. A lot … and then my monitor stopped working. It wasn’t the break I wanted but it was the break I got.
Yeah, not you, me.
I sleep late, and go through my day slowly, sometimes staring out the window at the snow, watching the raccoon yearlings and their mum bound through it like its their own personal playground, which, of course, it is.
I can feel my energy returning as the days slowly, almost imperceptibly at this time of year, get longer.
2022 is going to be momentous. I’ll be ready.
