Suffice to say that I'm pleased to be without TV, yet must admit that Twitter is eating too many hours of my brain. I'm grateful for a lovely kitchen; for a patio with a view so I'm outdoors even when I don't get out the door; for two wheels and two feet to cruise about town; and for my continued love of learning. While I've yet to focus a minute on my book proposal, I did complete my history course, am habitually reading two books simultaneously, et oui, j'etudie le Francais, aussi! Honestly, my "to do list" seems never-ending.
If there's one thing I've learned these past five years, it's how important it is to keep my eyes wide open to see and appreciate what every place and most people have to offer. So for weeks, while Baltimore had very few cars and people about, I did pause and appreciate the city. Socially, I'm feeding my need for people time with phone calls (lots of family & friend birthdays this spring), and on two days in May, I actually had in-person fun.
