Blue Monday?

Since I went to bed so early, I got up early too. I make a couple of good coffees and sit down to read the news online. SteinbachOnline says “Today is Blue Monday. Some people say the third Monday of January is the saddest day of the year.” Shoot! and I was feeling so good! Sun is shining streams of light in through the blinds, birds are singing loudly outside, coffee tastes as good as it smells. We must be doing something wrong.

Since I can’t stay awake to watch my movies in the evening, I’ll try watching them in the morning. So this morning, after breakfast, we watched “Birdman”. Very cool. I’ll look for it in the theatre and go see it again just for the cinematography. We’d just finished the movie when there was a knock at the door. The Bishops are here to spray for bugs. Okay, we’ll go for our walk and they can spray and we’ll come back when they’re done. Which is what we do. We got home at 1:00 and Sue made lunch. We both showered and then took the van to go shopping. First to the fruit market, then to Santan for wine and beer. I dropped my bike off at the Santan bike shop — it still has that ‘clunk’ in the bottom bracket — they’ll call me in a day or two. Sue found ‘her wine’ at TotalWine and I found 2 boxes of Pilsner Urquell. We’re done. Sue drops me off at the driving range on the way home. I work on my driver and my hybrid club for about 40 minutes and then walk home. Happy hour. It’s nice and warm today and we sit outside on the patio. Then Sue makes supper and we watch one episode of ‘Suits’. We follow that up with another of my movies, “CAKE”, starring Jennifer Aniston. Meh, what’s all the hype? News is next. I go back to work at my computer, working my way through the 350 recipes I need to somehow import into Sue’s iPad recipe program. If I was Werner I’d have written a quick little ‘regex’ script and had this done in 5 minutes. I’m not Werner. I do it the ‘manual’ way, and it takes me a few hours. But I finish it, hook up the iPad, and voila! it works. Happy times in Sue’s kitchen ahead!

It’s midnight! We’re both still awake! And we’ve had a fun day! So much for ‘Blue Monday’!
