I did not go swimming today. I decided last night that unless I woke up with an overwhelming desire to hit the pool, I'd take today off. I really don't like waiting until 8 am to get into the pool. It makes for days that are just too short. Here I am now. I've had breakfast, I've had two cups of coffee, I'm all caught up on Twitter, Instagram and LiveJournal and it's not even 9 am yet. Had I gone swimming, I'd still be in the pool with all that yet to do.

It's ridiculous, of course. What do I need more time in the day for? Nothing I want to do today even has a deadline. Why can't I just stay up later?

And why do I all of a sudden demand to crochet everything. I've knitted since I was 6 years old and now I can't bring myself to knit anything. Two needles seems like an unnecessary burden compared to one, simple, crochet hook.

See how relevant my life has become? I crack myself up. Yesterday, I ran into an Amazon delivery guy down in the garage. He had propped open a security door. I told him - with a smile - that it was a good thing I caught him and not half the people in this building who would have torn him a new one. He said "an old couple told me on my first delivery here that I'd get locked in the garage on weekends". I replied "Well, first of all, never trust old people." And then I showed him how to get back out to his car - even better than the way he came in. He was really cute and nice about it.

I recently found a Reddit topic about and by Amazon Flex Drivers (the ones who deliver). It's really fascinating which shows you how invested I am in Amazon deliveries. Also the fact that I netted $35 last month in cash back from my Amazon purchases. They are so lucky to have me.

A local artist who's work I have loved, the other day, posted, on instagram, a not unflattering portrait of Trump that he had done. It carried the has tag. 'nonpolitical'. It bugged me a lot. For many reasons, not the least of which is a random painting of Trump posted on instagram is not nonpolitical. But, now, when I see his work, it represents something it never did before and not in a good way. Plus, I'm annoyed with me that I let something like that color my opinion of his work. I'd like to think I'm a little more open and broadminded than that. But, I guess not.

In other more ridiculous news, I think I have figured out a way to get both Google Assistant and Alexa in my car. I just got the last piece so I'm ready to test. And will today. But, just think of it... A Smart Car with maximum smart speakers for a person who drives fewer than 4,000 miles a year. A Year! (Bought new in 2011, currently has 30,100 miles on it.)

I have a couple of solid projects to do today but first I need to clean up the kitchen from breakfast. Baseball this afternoon.
