I continue to have motivation problems. Every night I make great plans to get myself moving and out of the house in the morning. And every morning, I lounge in bed, have a late breakfast downstairs, and then just hang around. It’s not a bad life, but the inactivity is not great for my mood. So, last night I set the alarm clock planning to get up and go for a brisk walk before breakfast. I was awake before the alarm. And then I lounged… Finally, while taking my shower, I noticed that the water wasn’t all that hot. After a couple of minutes, it was cool. The water heater is on the fritz. So I’ve spent part of the day phoning and waiting for return calls from the insurance company. I’m now waiting for the repair person to call and schedule a visit. And that’s been my excuse for not going anywhere … today.
|DIVINE, WITH GLAZED TERRA COTTA CHERUBS, BUT NOT WHERE I FIND INSPIRATION.|
Yesterday, my excuse for staying home much of the day was my allergies. The day before, my shoelace broke. Or one of my socks bunched up and made it uncomfortable to walk too far. No, I think the velcro strap on my sneaker lost its grip. Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket. It was the velcro!

SEVILLA’S GREAT THINKERS, ARTISTS, AND LEADERS. SO GLAD THEY WERE MOTIVATED.
So, I’m still looking for the kick in the pants, the shot in the arm, that will get me happily active again. And I need to find it for myself. Jerry, Linda, Tom, and I took a walk to get churros and chocolate the other day. Our churros stand wasn’t serving yet and we didn’t feel like waiting the hour, so we instead went to a little chocolate shop and café called Valor and I now have a new favorite churros y chocolate place. Valor is just a block away from the Church of the Magdalena. The churros were excellent and the chocolate was superior. Hot, dark, thick, and exquisitely delicious. To top things off, it was cheaper at the café than at our usual stand. It’s not a bad way to spend some time while I await divine inspiration. Besides, in my funk, I’ve lost 10 pounds (more than 5 kilos). I can afford a little churros y chocolate inspiration and I know I won’t get any arguments from San Geraldo.
|MAYBE THIS IS DIVINE INSPIRATION AFTER ALL.|
