If all responsibility is imposed on you, then you may want to exploit the moment and want to be overwhelmed by the responsibility; yet if you try, you will notice that nothing was imposed on you, but that you are yourself this responsibility.
----Frank Kafka

I’ve been ignoring things around me. I have a house that needs cleaning, quilt blocks that need blocking, knitting projects that need knitting, holiday planning that needs planning, baked goods that need baking, writing projects that need writing, books that need reading, movies that need watching, coffee that needs drinking. . . I’m rambling again, aren’t I?

Well, I think I need to take a few days off from blogging so that I can try to regain some resemblance of control. I need to actually work on some of the things I need to do, rather than just thinking about them and making “To Do” lists. Plus, I’m not feeling all that great, so somewhere in the middle of all this stuff that I think I need to do, I’m going to have to find time to actually rest so that I don’t have to take those damn muscle relaxants that knock me out and make me loopy.

So, posts will be sporadic this week.

BTW, I finally saw the movie A Prairie Home Companion. I’ve been listening to it for years, but I wasn’t sure how they were going to adapt it to the screen. I thought it was wonderful. And Robert Altman was the perfect person to direct because of his ability to have all these different characters and different conversations going on at the same time and still make it cohesive. Plus, there’s a number in the show where Dusty and Lefty sing a song about Bad Jokes, that is broken up with bad jokes, of course. I love bad jokes: What do you call a cross between Holy Water and Castor Oil? A religious movement. *Snort*

Well, I’m gonna sign off now. I’ll still check in on ya. I can’t go cold turkey, after all.

Ok, but check in. I don't want to go too long without my doses of Kell. Sheesh, remember when you went on vacation? That was WAY too long to go without some wisdom and what have you from Kell. Ok, so, check in, don't be a stranger, come back :-)

I feel like that at times Kell. I can kill days at a time sitting here. But then I've only pot plants to consider.

I hope you'll be feeling better soon. I am thinking of taking a few days off because I am coming down with something too. I hate being sick, and taking the medicine does not help because it makes me loopy also (and it is hard to care for a six year old that way. Haha).

BTW, loved the corny joke! I am a sucker for those! :)

Sorry, you are feeling bad. Go do that last thing on your list or maybe it's too late for that now, and curl up with a good book.

Hi guys! Just checking in. I'm really feeling OK after getting through Monday. Either I'm learning to catch these little spells in time or I'm learning to ignore them. Thanks for the concern. I tried to think of something to post but just kept staring at a blank screen. Maybe tomorrow.
