Posted in Celebrate the Small Things, weather, whatever!, work

CTST’s today…

The sun is shining and it is not windy and freezing.
The guys installing the new balconies are back to work.
If it is too cold the epoxy used with the screws is ineffective.
Definitely, want the railings to be secure.
If it’s too windy they can’t work because it isn’t safe for the installers.
Certainly, want them to be safe and secure.

The cats are not happy about the noise.
Especially Teddy.

He just wants it done.
It’s hard to nap with all the noise.

Jack’s okay.

Not exactly happy but putting up with it.

So, today I am celebrating
the good weather and working conditions,
the guys working and doing a good job,
and my sweet catkids.

Today and tomorrow…

Well, I am pooped!
For some reason, I felt inclined to clean.
Not that it is a rare thing for me to clean but
it rare for me to do the nooks and crannies
kind of cleaning two weeks in a row.

toes

And I did several loads of laundry.
And…I put it all away the same day!

The actual plan for today was to paint some old pots
and clean up the balcony. I was really in the mood to get
everything ready for flower planting this weekend.
That didn’t happen because there was a bit
of wind so not a good day for spray painting.
Tomorrow is another day.

Linking today to Tuesday Chatter.

Somebody’s gotta do it…

There are some wonderful bugs that visit our balcony.
Really big wonderful bugs.
Not only are they big they fly and they are noisy.
They live in the trees and when they are all whirring
at the same time they are really noisy.
Not only are they noisy they sometimes fly away
and leave their body shells and wings behind.
Mama says they are cicadas.
And, this is very important,
they are never to be brought inside.
NEVER EVER!
I learned that the hard way.
Mama can be crazy if there is a bug in the house even a little one
if it’s a big one like a cicada she is a wild woman.

Uh-oh, there’s one on the screen.
I must shoo it away before Mama sees it and gets all weird.

doorIt’s a nasty job, but somebody’s gotta do it.jack

Intent and action and me…

Today I am linking to
Two Shoes Tuesday
Yes, it is Thursday.
I tried for Tuesday, but it just didn’t happen.
the prompts this week are
intent–action

I looked up the two words to help decide what to write
and while doing so I learned something about myself.
Not really something new but after looking at the words
how I live and work and my strengths and weaknesses are clear.

  • Intent: noun; object, plan, goal
    Intent: adj; determined, attentive, concentrating, committed, resolute

Yes, that’s me, for sure.

  • Action: noun; acting, doing, execution, effect, influence, process,

Yes, that’s me, sort of.

Let me explain.

Intent

thinkI like and I am good at objectives, having a plan and goal,
I can think it through and find a way to make it happen.
I can concentrate and be attentive to the details,
but I sometimes lose sight of the big picture.
I am determined to get it done!

Action

noworkI can effectively influence others and motivate them.
I can explain how the plan will be executed and the process involved,
I am a thinker and planner and motivator but not a good worker bee.
The actual doing of the plan is best left to others.

  I am more of a thinker than a doer.
But things do get done when I am around.
