Day 39

I stopped by Aaron Brothers on the way to the grocery store to get some frames before their penny sale ends tomorrow. It probably says something about me that a frame shop is one of the few places in town where they greet me by name when I arrive. I love to frame things. When you put a frame around something, you look at it differently. You could pick up trash on the street, put it in a nice frame and suddenly it becomes art. Perhaps this blog is just a way to frame each day. Words in books. Images in frames. It's all the same, really. Just a way to get people to pay attention to the things around them.

Today, I just wish people would pay attention to their driving. It's another soggy, wet day in Dallas and traffic is terrible. Things slow down to a snail's pace whenever it rains. Lord help us if it snows. We know what to do if a tornado hits, but garden variety wet weather doesn't seem to bring out the best in us.

Just about every Saturday shares a common theme these days. I vaguely remember doing something spontaneous on weekends, but it's been a long time. Lately, it feels like my life has become an endless to-do list I will never finish. The house is cleaner this evening. The groceries are in the refrigerator. The laundry has been dried and folded. I'm sure there's still something that still needs to be done.
