Here are my Wednesday wishes:
- That I would have sewn yesterday. Sadly, not a stitch.
- That there were more than 24 hours in a day. Or that I didn’t need sleep.
- That eating chocolate could be guilt-free. (As if.)
- That I hadn’t painted my nails right before I started cooking supper. (Really, what was I thinking?)
Okay, I’ll admit, none of these are that bad. In the overall scheme if things, there are far bigger problems.Yesterday was just one of those days that we all have now and then. My to-do list was long and I attacked it early. It seemed like I was busy all day, but I ended up with very little to show for it. I can’t even tell you exactly what I did all day beyond some of my tasks I had planned, along with the usual laundry and cooking, but the day flew by.
I ran some errands, then went to the coffee shop in the afternoon for a little bit, and took my bullet journal. There were too many things demanding attention in my brain and I knew I needed to write them down to make some kind of sense of things. Well, three cups of coffee (and a lavender shortbread cookie–just one!) later, I still felt kind of scattered.
When I’m trying to sort things out, I put in my earbuds and listen to whatever I have playing on Pandora. Usually, it’s something classical. (Read: WITHOUT words.) This time, I was tuned into a station called “1978 music.” I don’t remember pulling it up, but I must have at some point. Had I been thinking, I should have switched to something else. But. In a flash, I was right back in high school. Each song that played brought up some or other memory. Before long, I realized I was just staring into space.
Isn’t it funny how music can do that? It’s so incredibly nostalgic. I hear an old song and am immediately transported to the time that song was popular. Does that happen to you?
I wonder what would happen if I used music to remind me of things…you know, like if I wanted to remember something about a certain year. Could I tune to a station playing music from that year to recall what happened? Maybe I could. I wish I could listen to music from today to help me remember exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.Think it would work the same way?
I found this mug on Amazon that suits me to a tee:
Today I have a little found time. I was scheduled to be in the dentist’s office again (to get a new scan before we start the Invisalign process), but their machine is broken. That means I get two hours that I would have spent sitting around feeling unproductive. Yes, I will spend them in my workroom.
What’s are your wishes for today?
