Sunrise and Baloney

 
I am sorry to tell you that today was pretty much a non-starter. We did perform bell choir this morning, doing Pachelbel's Canon in D. It's the hardest piece we've done this year, but also a very pretty arrangement. We did not embarrass ourselves.

The sun was shining, and I should have at least gone out for a hike if I couldn't make myself work in the afternoon. But the truth is that I didn't sleep last night, and I just couldn't make myself get moving. I played my game and read a book. Oh, and I washed the dishes. Big deal.

Enjoy two very different sunrises from the week. This is Wednesday.

This is Saturday. I'm not going to apologize for something as "ordinary" as a sunrise this time. I read this week that people don't look at the sky very much. I find that hard to believe. At least the people I am friends with on Facebook post lots of beautiful pictures of the sky. Have a couple more. For sure it is two more days I got to have a sunrise, and I appreciate those more and more all the time.

In the genuine baloney category, you know how the memes were saying that the palindromic date of 02/02/2020 would not be repeated for umpity-ump years. People just don't think for themselves. I didn't see anyone post that it will happen again next year on 12/02/2021. The memes also said it hadn't happened for 900 years or some such nonsense.

Remember 11/02/2011? That was a nice day too. I was contemplating beautiful fungus.

Or 01/02/2010? Ellen and I went to Bowman Lake and snowshoed.



Or 10/02/2001? That was before I was blogging, but I know what I was doing. Marie and I were hiking on the Superior Hiking Trail.

And soon I'm going to contemplate the inside of my eyelids. I should be able to sleep tonight.

I have far too many of those days where I can't get myself to do anything.
I look at the sky all the time and Pretty much all the bloggers I follow do too since they frequently post pictures of the sky.
As for the date, it's funny how people will read something and just take it to be true without digging deeper.
