AS happens so frequently on this blog, today is mostly about photos. How can it not be? The day was warm and sunny (in January! Hurrah!) so of course I took Abby out for an extra-long walk with camera in my back pocket. What a day for photos!
I must also say that I would rather I didn’t have quite as much for walking today. I was supposed to have a rather major story to work on today – it got postponed until Wednesday. It would have been so nice to have it done and out of the way. It would also have been nice to have my phone calls returned from the interviewee I am chasing and have been since Friday. Sigh How many more messages do I have to leave until my calls are returned? Vegas should start laying odds.
And then there was the little thing niggling at the back of my mind, even in the beautiful sunshine. Does that ver happen to you – that there’s something just bugging you and you can’t get it off your mind and you just have to do something about it?
When it happens to me, as it did today, I tend to leap into action, track down exactly what it is that’s bothering me, and handle it. Usually, it’s something so small it’s almost insignificant. Still – I am taking action. Yesterday, Abby chewed a small plastic dohickey on my friend’s car. And I said I would pay to have it repaired – my fear is that I was not gracious enough or adamant enough about taking responsiblity. You see, at first I was so stunned that Abby would do such a thing (she never chews on stuff) that I kept saying, “Surely not!” So, I didn’t take responsibility quickly enough. At any rate – I must once again stress my accountability and make sure my friend understands that.
