Cowart's Common Room

Today is Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Wednesday is sometimes referred to as "Hump-day"; if you get over Wednesday, it's all down hill until the weekend. Frankly, after Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday is rest day for the Bear. Major ethics meetings both Monday and Tuesday. In a complex world, trying to decide what is the "right thing to do," and then how to do it, is not an easy task, sometimes. Especially when you have to care for someone else.

Yesterday, PM had a challenging day with her youngsters; Daisy got more of a hair cut than Camilla necessarily wanted; and lots of people had cold, wet weather. As Patsy so wisely pointed out, some days you're the pigeon, and some days, the statue. (Or as they say in Canada's Yukon Territory, some days you get the Bear; some days the Bear gets you. Which is why Bear does not live in the Yukon.)

Meanwhile, in Thailand, life in Bangkok is still very unsettled. Neutral Bear doesn't want to live there, either.

Sorry that tired bear is not more witty today. I used to be urbane, now I'm just urban. Dist-urban. Rolling Eyes

What might make today better for your or other(s) around you?

There was something special I was going to do today, but I can't remember what it was. Sad Maybe I'll remember for tomorrow. Confused

Earl Grey tea on the counter in the common room; digestive biscuits (some with chocolate, some plain) in the biscuit tins.

Hope you have a grand day!

Preseli Mags's Avatar Earl grey and a digestive, simple but delicious and perfect for this misty May morning.

Today is already better than yesterday. In fact we were having so much fun this morning we were slightly late for school. (Actually bang on time, but they prefer them five minutes early, so even though we were on time, we were late. Such is the way of the world.)

I think as Blossom showed me yesterday, what makes things better is a good old laugh. I found the Pixar DVD and we watched the funny bird film fives times in the end. It was still funny the fifth time too. I anticipate having to watch it again later. Rolling EyesLaughing

Withy Brook's Avatar Sorry I missed the early morning refreshment. Yesterday was good here - sun shone all day and my spirits with it. A little cloudy today, but warm - can't believe it!
