The Little Things

2 Aug

I haven’t had time to write for pleasure this week.  And because I have only a few moments to post something before my eyelids bring my system to a close, and because it will be a few more days before I have the energy-opportunity convergence which will allow me to indulge my cathartic pen, I will share a few tidbits that have been mulling about in the vacant space of my mind (which doesn’t offer much room, though that point my siblings and good friends would argue).:

  • If you clean your ear with a dirty Q-tip, the result can be most alarming!
  • The blog, is a valuable “apps” resource.
  • Cleaning up after a dead rodent, in the kitchen, is nauseating.
  • I love my family.
  • Silver hair is beautiful, gray hairs are not.
  • This life is hard, yet full of fun adventures.
  • Math after 3:00p.m. should be against the law.
  • Speaking of law, traffic signals at freeway entrances are for everyone else; not me!
  • I am in love with the moon, with Moliere, with Voltaire; With Rousseau, Ibsen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle…with sleep.


P.s. Please check out the blog I mentioned, the information it provides is most valuable (and truly does not deserve to be categorized with the rest of my delirium).

    “Silver hair is beautiful, gray hairs are not.” Laughing out loud!

    I’m not much of one for vanity (what Mom has time?!)—the eyeshadow gets opened maybe twice a month, and I spend most of my writing-days in yoga-pants and tank-tops… But my one concession to vanity is $3 a month at WalMart for a box of dye to refresh the “bright auburn.” That’s been going on for a number of years, so my eleven-year-old was astonished the other day when I shared that I actually have quite a lot of GRAY hairs (not silver, or I might not be bothered)…

    And on the occasions when I’m asked if I”m a “natural redhead,” my private response (though I haven’t yet said it aloud) is “Yes, I am. My HAIR just isn’t.” 🙂

      I love your response!! Now if people would only ask me the question, “Is your hair naturally black?” or, “Is your hair naturally straight?”, then I could borrow your “private response” for I think it too precious to keep under wraps…it deserves to go public. Alas, my looks must reveal their secret, for I haven’t turned away one inquisition, and I’ve been “on the bottle” now for over 10 years!

        I suspect it’s the REDhead aspect that leads people to inquire, rather than my need to cover grey… I suppose they’d be more circumspect otherwise! 😉

        Cheered by your approval, I will boldly answer aloud next time I’m asked! 😉

    HA! Yes. Everytime I sit at the stop light at the freeway enterance I think,”Rivka just ignores these things… They aren’t meant for her, shall I?”. Oh no worries, I wait patiently!!!! But I often think the guy next to me is on your same mentality!!!!

      You have always had more reserve than I…but I know you secretly long to run that red! 🙂

Love to hear from you!
