What was so odd? Well, waking up an hour early wasn't so stressful, so I guess staying in bed yesterday made the difference. Yay. It was also mild. More yay. But I still wore all my winter stuff, just didn't bother buttoning my coat. But it was such a grey day and my vision was equally foggy. Sigh.
There were changes afoot at church, beginning with a Lenten series based on Anishnabe teachings, beginning with "Truth" today. Okay, Rev. Jeff is keeping me on my toes, so I have to pay extra special attention. Another change will go into effect next week, with a shorter, pared-down 9:00 a.m. service (no choir, for one thing). IMO, I believe it should be eliminated completely, as it is extra work especially for whoever is preaching, as well as logistically assigning volunteers.
My driver was early picking me up, then picked up a woman with autoimmune diseases who was off to a gym where she used the massage chairs exclusively. So I mentioned the electronic pedalling device I want to get. She was delightful, saying that red was my colour!
I took my time with my review. First I had soup. I wasn't going to deprive myself. Then I finished my stupid Russian ballet book that was basically porn … though it makes me wonder whether the practices were common at the time, or this was all just someone's version of badly written (OMG) fanfic? I then found our service online and began watching it, even though I had a hard time finding the play button! Just as Rev. Jeff was beginning his Benediction, Firefox crashed. I restarted the computer and had a miracle. Jeff had included a mother giraffe and her calf in his wonderful prayer. So … my computer has a number of wallpapers, usually a forest or water scene. But, today, of all days, it was a giraffe!!! I'll have to let him know. I can just hear him saying, "How cool is that?"
I was finally done by 8:00 p.m. Then I watched four new epis of Peppa Pig recorded this morning. Thanks to FB, I knew about them in advance (how unusual to see FB being helpful, lol). Had more soup in a different flavour and also tuna for the extra protein.
And the (I hope this is the last one) final bit of weirdness: I heard a thump a couple weeks ago (the sound of something hitting the floor). When I turned the lights on, my box of tissues was missing. I couldn't find it anywhere. Today, one of my floppy slippers disappeared. I actually (this was scary) got down on my knees and checked under the bed. No slipper. Just the missing tissue box!?!?! There must be an alternate dimension under the bed. Well, I know there's dust. Yuck.
Anyway, time to finally relax (especially as I'd already dozed off earlier). Maybe some real reading for a change.
