Scenes from Saturday + Bored & The Beatles

It’s winter break this week. We are not a skiing family. We tend to stockpile our vacation days for the summer which means no February trips which means that by Saturday morning Ally was already saying she had nothing to do and was bored.

Good! I think boredom is important and quickly becoming a scarce resource. It’s really hard to be bored these days. The internet and social media are always available to soak up attention.

I love being bored because it allows you to indulge in curiosity and that in turn often leads to creativity.

Cecilia is taking an entrepreneurship class this semester and I pitched her an idea of doing her project on boredom spaces. They have rage rooms. Why not a apathy cafes. You could make boredom a luxury item like a spa. Come here and be bored. Discover something about yourself!

I was only half joking.

Another reason we know Dash’s meds are working and he’s feeling better is he’s rejoined the basement workouts.

Reverse lunges while trying to throw the squeaky toy add a new and different level of difficulty.

We have new neighbors to the rear and they have a Golden named Leroy who sometimes gets loose and meanders over to our yard for a doggie play date. Dash is constantly on the lookout for his new friend.

No Leroy today but it was veritable canine convention at the State Hospital.

Walking the paths was like driving on the Merritt on a Sunday afternoon.

When in doubt, or when you are bored, just start working.

The dark side of the Transfer Station. The times you must maneuver your way around the people canvassing for signatures. I don’t want a debate. I just want to dump my trash.

We might not go on February vacations, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t planning them.

Michelle’s hobby outside of power tools, plumbing, and masonry, is to scour the web for travel deals.

Another Saturday wrapped up with a Beatles tribute fundraiser concert for Michelle’s work.

Kudos to the band for the verisimilitude in finding a lefty Paul.
