It has made me better loving you… it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I did not have them. Theoretically, I was satisfied. I flattered myself that I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid sterile hateful fits of hunger, of desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I can’t think of anything better. It’s just as when one has been trying to spell out a book in the twilight, and suddenly the lamp comes in. I had been putting out my eyes over the book of life, and finding nothing to reward me for my pains; but now that I can read it properly I see that it’s a delightful story.
what a way to start every week with the longest, most physically demanding shift. For the past two weeks, in addition to my regular duties, I’ve been taking in the truck deliveries and rotating stock. It’s a shittonne of lifting, many of the things I’m lifting weigh 40 and 50 lbs., and I really should just cancel my gym membership.
I’m glad to do it – to get a better insight into the flow of goods in the store, and to be responsible for things being organized as I think about what that will look like when I’m an owner in the next endeavor. My arms, though. I just want to soak in a tub full of hot water and salt.
I had this plan to come in the door, crack a beer, and climb into the shower where I would wash the beefy, garlicky, tomato-avacado-coconut curry, dishwater, raw chicken juice funk off of me and chug-a-lug.
I never made it past the blue chair, and I’ve been sitting here for 40 minutes, and have had exactly two sips, and 30 minutes of bone-crushing nap. I had no idea falling asleep in the chair could hurt so much. My Maude, I am exhausted.
But, it’s raining after a hot and humid day, and the air smells of hot metal and green things on the rise. The dogwood in my side yard is blooming, and the plants I put in the garden yesterday are getting a good, gentle soaking, which is great, because I don’t own a hose yet.
I’m splurging on pizza and wings tonight - delivered, because - MONDAY.
Spending quality time with my “niece” Olivia eating fruit & reading her book together while we cook dinner (@nansare is the master chef though ;) ) 💜💋🍓🍇📖 #GoodTimes #bonding #Seattle #family #niece #quality #home #chilling #206 #SEA #Washington #fruit #cooking #dinner #healthy #vacation #cozy #fun #smile #reading #happy #relaxed #AtEase #satisfied #calm #framily #visiting #adorable #GoodGenes (à Renton,Seattle, Washington)
