“If life throws you a few bad notes or vibrations, don’t let them interrupt or alter your song.”

Maybe I should just start every musing with ditto on the weather. Today, though, I get to say we’re in the 70’s. What a delight!! The day is perfect. More flowers have bloomed in the front garden. The slight morning breeze barely ruffles the small leaves hanging off the oak branches. I was out on the deck for a while and reluctantly came back inside to make my coffee. Just imagine how beautiful the morning is if I am reluctant to go inside even to make coffee.

I watch old TV mostly in the wee hours. Some of my favorite shows are just awful in retrospect. I have trouble imaging the me who enjoyed them. Now I often scoff. A few of them, though, have aged well. I enjoy Kolchak, the Night Stalker. I like looking at the clothes in Lost in Space. They are a monument to the colors of the 60’s as is Buck Rogers which I don’t watch. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is dizzying. The Seaview goes back and forth and throws crewmen against the walls in every episode. I just shake my head and keep watching.

My mood fluctuates. Nothing triggers it. That’s just the way it’s been lately in this weird time. The last few days, actually the last week or so, I haven’t had the wherewithal to do a thing. I didn’t even make a list. I barely moved off the couch. Brushing my teeth was a chore. I rested in the middle.

The mop, the vacuum and the dust cloths have been sitting in my upstairs hall for well over a week. I acknowledged the pile by stepping over it. When I went into the cats’ room, I could hear the crunch of litter as I walked. Shrinking the size of the contact by tip toeing didn’t help. That was a last ditch silly effort doomed to failure from the start. Anyway, back to the story, back to the drama. Last night, around 2 AM, I was lying in bed hunting the elusive Morpheus. It was then I decided I couldn’t stand it anymore. I jumped up and vacuumed the cats’ room. I wet mopped the floor. I vacuumed then washed the bathroom floor. I used all the cleaning supplies from the hall. I went to sleep happy.

Today I expect to go to the dump. My trunk is filled mostly with bags of wet, heavy cat litter. One more bag is upstairs. I couldn’t carry it down as my hands were full of cleaning supplies. I hope to vacuum down here and wash the kitchen floor. I’m happy and productive, but I’d prefer a happy mood which doesn’t include cleaning.

    Lost in Space has a special look. It’s obviously not done on a huge budget but it has its own disturbing reality.

      The greens and the oranges in Lost in Space are pastels. The colors of the female uniforms are mirrored in the lapels and the trim on the male uniforms. Dr. Smith is the only one in dark clothing, a metaphor?

    Hi Kat,

    This morning it has been raining heavily on and off all day with a temperature in the low 70s. The weather forecast for the next 10 days includes a high probability of rain each day. I’m watching the Rangers and the Astros on TV. Both teams have convertible roof ballparks and it’s just as rainy down in Houston as it is here today.

    Today is a good day to watch the TV and just relax. Yesterday we enjoyed the backyard while we could. May is our wettest month before the dry summer heat begins. We have a friend who moved to the Phoenix area and she says that it’s so hot there in August that the pool water gets so hot that they have to have bags of ice delivered to cool the water. 🙁

      Hi Bob,
      We have had a wonderful stretch of lovely days, and it will continue for the next couple of days. I think today is my favorite so far. It got up to 74˚.

      I watched the Sox lose today. I had hopes they’d sweep but it wasn’t to be. I do enjoy baseball. People were in short sleeves at the game today, a nice warm day for baseball.

      I vacuumed downstairs today a nd went to the dump. I had such heavy used litter bags. It wasn’t fun dragging them out of the car to the bins. I went about a half hour before the dump was closing for the day, and I was surprised by how busy it was. Cars were everywhere.

        I watched the Rangers get sweeped by the Astros in Houston. All the fans were in shirt sleeves in the stands today while it rained outside with the air conditioning running inside. The rain stopped temporarily but there’s much more in the forecast.

        Fenway was a perfect place to be for today’s weather. It was sunny and warm for an afternoon game. They are playing good baseball.
