I am quite accomplished at having idealistic goals and then being distracted into accomplishing much less. Example: on the weekend I set myself up with a Friday visit to the Super Library (my new name, for blogging purposes, for the Bibliotheque et Archives Nationale du Québec) to have a good weekend of reading. Saturday morning I set out to find a replacement for the TV that was no longer 100% working (a 1 inch horizontal band of dead pixels). Researched and accomplished that by mid afternoon and then got lost in the wonderful new technology that I had brought home which included an updated terminal from the cable company. The remainder of Saturday, after attending a gospel concert (Chorale de la Prophésie) I watched the 3 hockey games that had recorded while I was out and set up other things on the TV.
At least I had the wisdom to take advantage of the excellent weather on Sunday afternoon and go skating. Best ice of the season. I’m back today skating until the music gave out (disco killed my skating joy). Took refuge in the café to read book and ended up being distracted again, this time by internet and emails and finally this blog. They just finished resurfacing ice so I will enjoy an hour of skating pleasure and then accomplish some 2014 bookkeeping at home office before spending the evening reading my library books.
