Things I Learned Today / Sunday, June 27, 2021

Things I learned today…

How you do one thing is how you do everything. Usually half-assed? Cuts corners? Procrastinator? Or usually considers everything? Stays focused? Takes pride in your work? Think about that.

Someone has to clean the kitchen up everyday.

My blog now has a website. Hopefully, I can get the web address mapped to the site tomorrow. I’ve started that, but I’ve got a few technical issues to solve. I’m learning.

How did we go from Queen Latifah and Missy Elliot to Saweetie and Cardi B?

I think you should get up in the morning determined to make your husband or wife super happy that they’re married to you.

Herculaneum was a village also destroyed by Vesuvius in AD 79. In the later excavation, a loaf of bread was found perfectly preserved in an oven. Interestingly, the bread was marked with “property of Celer, slave of Q. Granius Verus, Herculaneum” using a stamp of some kind that was required to prove the source of the bread after baking.

The amount of work I have to do this week to tie up and confirm registrations of returning dancers is colossal. It’s got to be done by Thursday, and we’ve got to move on to the next phase.

My bedside table lamp stopped working, so it’s been dark on my side for a week. Keith took it apart and replaced a few of its parts today, and it works perfectly again.

I get threadbare with people who whine. And I hate myself when I whine. I really try not to.

It’s never easy to tell Brady that a pet she knows has died. She was sad to hear about Dwight, the cat at the barn. She cried.

It’s 8:37 pm, and I want to go to bed.

Big fish in small ponds drive me bonkers. And those who put them on a pedestal and encourage them drive me bonkers more.

Humility is everything. And teaching humility is everything.

I got a key lime pie yesterday, and I haven’t cut it yet.

He might be a goofball, but Keith is one tough-minded, strong guy.

That’s all. We learn everyday, don’t we?
