Roscoe's Quick Notes

my micro-blog

One quiet and happy Saturday. Told Sylvia I was pivoting away from planning a Spring weekend at the Convention in Dallas, toward planning a week for us in July visiting her daughter in Washington State. She seems happy with that decision. And I've been binge watching a Firefly Marathon on Comet TV.

This has been a quiet Friday. The only constructive thing I've done is order Sylvia's Valentines Day gift and card. And I reactivated my twitter account: mainly because so many sources of information are linking back to twitter postings and without an active account I was unable to follow them.

Headed to bed early again tonight and hoping for another good sleep. Shoulders are a bit sore from pushing a grocery cart around the HEB store while the wife loaded it up. Then carrying the haul from the car into the house. I'm glad she asked me to go shopping with her. I hate the thought of that little woman having to push such a heavily loaded cart up and down those long aisles.

What a full day it's already been! Figured and filed my federal taxes, wrote a lengthy report and sent it to two fellow KofC officers, and sorted and filed a good amount of paperwork in my home/office. And I've been experimenting with a new blog tool that I may employ in publishing archives of my posts.

Today finds me parked in front of the computer for several hours as I build the January Monthly Newsletter for my Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Assembly. The weather outside is unusually cold for South Texas, so it's good that I'm working indoors. And for those keeping score, today finds me feeling relatively well, considering that I'm a senior citizen working through my mid-70s.

Happy to report I'm feeling much better today than yesterday. Energy levels are still low, and there's a bit of vertigo to deal with, but moving through the day's chores (weekly laundry, etc.) has been easy. A power nap this afternoon was very welcome.

Feeling slightly unwell today. Glad I decided to stay home from Mass. If I'm starting to come down with something, mingling with a crowd of heavily vaxxed and boosted people is the very last thing I should do! There is flu going around, and I don't want any part of that!

The fact that I have not fully recovered yet, physically nor mentally, from last Saturday's March for Life & Rally in San Antonio justifies my decision NOT to attend today's even longer March and bigger Rally up in Austin. Lesson learned: I am too old for that kind of activity. ❗

Very tired very early again this evening. At least I'm still alert enough to take care of my basic night time chores. Unlike last night when I crashed early leaving much undone.

Though it's been almost a week, I'm still recovering from the march last Saturday. Both physically and mentally. I am, without a doubt, too darned old for that kind of activity.
