I’m Going Eclectic On You Today

8 Dec

Today’s activities came to a screeching halt before they had even gotten started.

We got out of bed this morning to find that six inches of snow had fallen over night.

We were ready for, like, two inches.

Then the snow plow thing came by, and gave us a very nice two foot wall of snow at the end of our driveway. So thoughtful. That’s exactly what we wanted. How did you know?


So a couple of phone calls were made, and a snow day was in effect.

Those are great when you have things clearly lined up for a day stuck home. Today however my mind had been all ready for running around and getting half a dozen things done.

To compensate, however, I got to spend a ton of time reading another book in this absorbing series. A lot of fun, but hardly what I would call an accomplishment. Oh, well.


More opera!!!

What a voice.  😀 


In the midst of the day, I also came across an interesting video about how long it takes to become competent at a new thing. Turns out that ten thousand hour thing has been twisted out of it’s original context over the last several years.

Watch this if you have the time. If not, I’ll understand… sort of.  😉 

Seriously, it is just about twenty minutes long, so don’t feel bad if you don’t have the time right now.

If you’re worried about it being boring, don’t be. He’s pretty entertaining.


If you could learn something in forty-five minutes a day

for about a month, what would you try?

If I had the resources: Tango, piano, Italian, belly dancing, Tongsu Do, how to chop veggies up really, really fast!
