Simpson’s Blue


I’m skipping all the good parts from the previous week that was so chock full there wasn’t much time to note everything. And then on Friday it sort’ve went downhill…

I could blather on about congestion, sore throat, fever and then some.

The weekend went by and the most interesting thing I did was dishes, in between a haze of Tylenol pills and Chloraseptic spritzes.

So I went to the doctor yesterday, which provided some comfort excusing myself from work and responsibility. Littered in the waiting area were no less than seven copies of People magazine with Rene Zellweger and Kenny Chesney on the cover.

Driving home, I realized somewhere in my hermitism, the weather became wonderful.

I decided to stop by the park and breathe outside air. Looking at the leaves that won’t be green much longer, the sky was this unusually bright Simpson’s blue. I’ve been told I need to explore more colorful adjectives, but “nice” pretty much summed it up.

    Hi Chris,
    This is my second time to comment on your weblog.
    I’m a big fun of yours and I look forward to your update everyday.
    Are you o.k. now? Please take it easy.

    the topic of ‘who or what makes a well-balanced blog’ came up in a recent discussion. as usual, i mention your blog as the ideal blog: well-paced, compelling, and visually captivating. Not to sound cheesy, but it has a very “zen-like” asthetic. The addition of “the last 10 days” blog cycle has worked out well for you. If you’re suffering from blogger burnout, it’s difficult to tell.
    Keep up the great work.

    Shucks Neal, I appreciate your words. Now if I can just keep up with the last ten days. Seems that a combination of real world commitments and seasonal cold make getting posts posted a little rough.

    You know how it goes, “It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality.” Just keep that in mind. Even when you don’t write all that much, your site is always an interesting read. I don’t comment on here nearly enough, so I’ll just take a moment to say “thanks”.

    Weird, as I’m reading your blog entry, I’m suffering from a very similar sounding cold. I hope you’re feeling better today than I am.
    I also want to jump on the Accolade Train, and tell you that I love your blog. It always brings a smile to my face, and gives me great ideas. Humane mouse traps! My one suggestion: a few more pics of your cute face every now and then wouldn’t hurt.
