OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
Salieri and I were on the radio this morning, talking about publishing. She was much more eloquent with her purrs than I was with my contribution to the conversation, but ,,,,,,,,,,,,, [Salieri catssisting here, too] we both had fun, and it was interesting to listen to what the other participants had to say.
I spent an hour at the bank today, sorting out yesterday’s issues with the account, and I got only halfway through the list of things that need to get done, but there was progress.
For most of the day, I kept thinking about a Polish saying that does not translate well, and is terribly sexists, so I won’t even attempt it, but it made me realise that people often take advantage of kindness and that I mustn’t always dismiss selfishness as a mode of being for myself.
I finally managed to buy myself a new hairbrush and hair combs – I have been meaning to do it for a few weeks now and could never find the time. Tomorrow, I am replacing broken lightbulbs in the house – they have also been waiting forever. I might even find time to wash the dirty kitchen floor.
Highlight of the day: dinner with my love at HARU. Sanity saved.
Lovely to hear about the youngsters getting their vaccines. Mandatory vaccination is gradually being introduced for institutions, companies and events. My brother told me about Austrian doctors taking to the streets and begging people to get vaccinated because hospitals are beginning to fill up again. I wonder how bad the fourth wave is going to be here.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local. Get vaccinated, please.
