I’ve got a problem; I don’t know what to blog about this week. Sure, I’ve got a list of topics laid out that I can choose from but the issue is I don’t feel like writing about any of them.
Truth be told I feel a bit ho hum, motivation is a real issue at the moment. This end of the year I should be making plans for the next, however with the client situation the way it is that’s not happening.
Did I tell you about our cherries? No? Right then we can talk about them… We finally have cherries! I’m very excited, ridiculously so – let’s face it I’m telling you, a bunch of random (lovely, but random) people on the internet about them.
So why am I excited about the cherries? Well, it’s a few things…
- I LOVE cherries, almost as much as I love brie and that’s saying something
- It’s something new; we’ve waited 7 years for them to grow on our tree
- They are a welcome distraction* from the currently screwy work situation
I think #3 is most important. It’s a reminder to me that regardless of the current uncertainty at work (click here if you aren’t sure what I’m rambling about) that things can grow and develop despite the apparent stagnation.
They have also given me something to talk to… I’ve been outside encouraging the bees as they buzzed about pollinating the tree using very Monty Burns/Gollum esque language and hand gestures. I should point out that my conscious mind is aware that calling a bee “my precious” and tenting my hands while saying “excellent” and inspecting a tree is not healthy, I promise to get out more.
So I’ll leave you with a picture of our cherries and the cheerful thought that no matter how nuts you think you are you can’t be as crazy as the 40 something marketing professional wandering around her back yard giving constructive feedback to bees!
* I know that sounds odd but when you work from home being able to walk outside and see something actually progressing when you feel like you have been treading water for months is very reassuring and oddly calming.
