the beautiful life

not in the rich and famous tv beautiful life that hollywood likes to sell, but the peaceful appreciation of the simple comforts... a frosty morning becomes a wonderfully cool afternoon full of sunshine and light breezes so that after giving four or five hours to the staff and clients at the houses (three houses we will likely learn to call "the cluster" in time), fixing a van door so they can go on an outing to universal studios on saturday and resetting circuit breakers for the eating area that went off when the smoke alarm triggered last night because somebody didn't watch the popcorn in the microwave so the refridgerator, freezer, and microwave work again (the fire department were not happy with us and i am not happy to pay for their emergency response and i'm gonna have to figure out why the circuit breakers blew come next week when maintenance is back at work, but clients and staff and house are safe so it's only money and a stern reminder about not leaving popcorn unattended) and setting up email groups for a couple of nurses and showing them how to use outlook and preparing packets for review for a new client referred to us to fill a bed when we transfer out a client early next month and a few other things and yeah, after those four or five hours i can sit out on the porch (or patio as we are on the ground floor and not up north) in shorts and a t-shirt feeling a wonderfully cool tingle of fall (as in autumn) in the air with happiness and curious laid out on their outdoor pillows enjoying the fresh air with me as they wait for dinner time we can all relax and enjoy the sun going down and twilight starting to twinkle all around...

yeah, it's a beautiful life :)

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...


the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)

WORK ... JOB ... MUSIC ... LOVE ... SOFTBALL ... KA ... 42 ... LOL ... LAM ... LAA ... ... ...
