Clouds In The Sky: Still Enjoying My Weekend Inside

 

I did not plan on going out at all today.

The entire morning has been full of clouds, off and on rain, and ferocious winds.

It is the afternoon now and I am continuing on with my weekend off of relaxation and movie-watching.

Toward The End Of September

 

Sunday night it thundered, lightened, then poured down with heavy rain.

Monday, it was beautiful out, a pleasant change from the last few past days. I didn’t have to wear anything on my arms- no jacket, no sweater.

Today, on Tuesday, was another nice day, not as warm as yesterday but nice enough to go without a jacket while lingering in the sun otherwise one may have needed a sweater or long-sleeved shirt if preferred.

Regardless, it was still a very lovely day. It would be nice if the weather could stay beautiful all year around yet we need snow days and the rain for many vital reasons also, and so on.

All climates serve their beneficial purpose.

 

 

 

 

Autumn Day

 

Yesterday was the official day for Autumn to begin.

It was also the apparent end to the sequence of beautiful weather. The day before, along the other prior days it was nothing but a constant streak of warm, sunny gorgeous weather.

Since yesterday it has been cold.

Today it was cold and windy, making the day even worse. Most of the people I seen out wore jackets or sweaters- some with hats or hoods over their heads.

I had gotten caught in a little of the rain yesterday as clouds dominated the sky the majority of the fall day.

It rained hard during certain periods of the day yesterday as I was out in Great Neck, NY.

 

 

 

September Morning

 

Today was the first day I shut my window since the summer heatwave began.

The humidity dropped a month ago, allowing for a hot to warm- yet comfortable atmosphere.

I first noticed the change within the air when I got up during the wee hours to go to the bathroom while it was still dark out.

I felt a cool breeze come through.

It is starting to actually feel like September. The weather is not as nice as it was yesterday and the days before.

Fall is officially approaching. It will soon be time to wear jackets again.

 

Don’t Touch Me!

Years before Covid arrived on the scene (ever since the early 90’s) I was one who had already adopted a natural habit to frequently wash my hands.

Years after (In 2006 on up) I constantly wore gloves at work in retail department stores.

I was careful where I sat down at in public areas also. Sometimes I wouldn’t even sit down if I didn’t have something to cover a seat with.

In a way, I guess I was a germaphobe. It was all for good reason.

One day I was at work with a client.

She took her bare hand dug down inside her pants to vigorously scratch her pubic area then touched the landline telephone that I had to clock out with.

She didn’t even wash her hands before she used the phone.

This lady had the nerve to get offended because I wore gloves whenever I worked around her.

It is just a fact; everyone is not hygienic. One never knows where someone’s mouth has been (I was never one to let people kiss me either).

And, as I have already mentioned, one never knows where one’s hands have been, and so on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Stop Bugging Me, And Begone!”

Aside from the excessive heat of summer the second biggest annoyance are the bugs that come out.

Insects are very pestering.

Now that I have one relief due to the humidity subsiding, now I have to deal with the three flies that freely welcomed their selves through my opened window on the days when the weather was scorching.

These flies won’t let up.

Between the buzzing in my ear to the landing constantly back and forth on my bare skin.

I told all three of them, “You all have to go!”

They pay me no mind, of course. They have wings so they use their advantage to override my fanning them away to their demise.

I have a surprise for them! I am a human therefore I have the greatest advantage over them. Just wait until they fly into a sticky fly trap hung from the ceiling.

They won’t be flying around anywhere anymore. They had plenty of time beforehand to fly back out the window to leave. I gave them a chance now they’re doomed.

Good Vibrations

Other people’s behavior never affected my accomplishments yet having positive energy around one gives a situation an extra boost.

I’ve been in workplaces occupied by  good employers who treated me right and who strived to be fair.

Work environment is very important although we don’t have control over the negativity that may arise or hover over within the atmosphere of toxic people.

I don’t get involved with rancorous people or frivolous crowds.

I go to work to do my job and not to make friends. I’m civil to coworkers but I keep my distance toward those who my spirit doesn’t take to.

When I have an occupation in which suits me well, regardless of whether or not I really want to be there at the job, to me, it is more like fun than actual work itself.

When one enjoys what they do and are comfortable within their settings it can make all the difference as to how successfully they will perform.
