… what our reality feels like these days! Not due to injury, just trying to have a foot everywhere all the time!
I’ve got so much happening.
I have to work on Christmas shopping, which feels weird as I have 2 children that still have birthdays before then. Speaking of which, 2 birthdays and their respective parties to organize, and a house to have clean and tidy for both!
I’ve been spending a lot of time wrestling with my California ballot. In addition to the federal elections, there are 17 measures submitted to voters statewise, even one from my district. Wading through all of that information to make a hopefully informed choice, is time consuming.
My laptop went all wonky with the latest iOS update, though if I am honest it too was already limping along before then. I have to take it in for repair, I hope. One thing about living fairly rurally- no Apple store with a Genius bar nearby! They’ve suggested a local person that is approved by them, so, hopefully he can be my hero du jour. I can also hope it won’t be too pricey. Both may be in vain. I really do need that laptop though, and I definitely do not want to be replacing it at this moment in time, so, here I sit, fingers crossed.
We changed banks, this is not easy anywhere, but I think French red tape takes the cake here. We still have a few accounts lingering at our old bank, along with their fees, so I would really like to get those closed, asap as well. It is a bit like a dog chasing its tail- around and around we go, hoping to one day actually catch the end goal!
My day to day life is also generally busy when school is in session, volunteering at school, cooking, cleaning, keeping up on laundry. None of it seems huge in the moment, but, it all adds up to busy days. My great plan for today is to hopefully make some applesauce with apples from the yard and an apple tart or maybe a pie. Because nothing sounds better right now then a gorgeous slice of apple pie warm from the oven, to just sit with and enjoy in the moment.
