It may look lazy… and like a river… but it’s neither. It’s actually a creek.
Me? I look a little lazy as anyone with obesity does. If only people knew the machinations going on inside my body. I’m running, baby. Just try and catch me. But alas, it’s all done from my bed or my chair or the couch. Such is the life of someone who has been working from home since March.
Speaking of which…
I had a bit of surprising news today and it will, I hope, send me out to capture nature for the next two weeks or so. I’ve been laid off due to Covid. Effing Covid. The plan is to go back to work once we’re let back in our office. Twice, we’ve been told it was almost time. Twice, we’ve been disappointed. Again, not surprising, given what we know about pandemics, which is precious little.
Am I happy about it? No. Not surprised, though. And not angry. The writing (as they say) was on the wall – especially over the last several weeks. My “working from home” could simply not be sustained.
I *do* wish they’d have given me more notice. More than… you know… today. As in: After today, you’re laid off.
Still, I will make the most of it and get out and about for the next little while. As you may remember, I believe that everything happens for a reason. Including this. So… I wonder what the the weeks ahead will bring?
