I had no idea I was such a creature of the weather! The past few days have been gorgeous out – cool, sunny and breezy. All I wanted to do was throw open the windows and hear the sounds outside.
Maybe it’s because I’ve got the clairaudience thing going on that I can find depth in sound. Like, silence isn’t just silence to me. I can hear deeply into it. (I know that doesn’t make any sense at all but it’s the best ways I can explain it.)
At any rate, the past few days have been stellar for listening deeply. Just yesterday, I was sitting on the deck marveling at how peaceful it all sounded. (Can you hear peace? Yes, you can!)
I was the happiest I’ve been in a long time. For one, I didn’t have to go sit in a windowless office for 4.75 hours and push paper around and for another, I just needed filling up and the sounds of silence do that for me.
In less peaceful and somewhat more productive news ….
I’ve chosen to stay on with the temp day job until December 31st. I’m pretty meh about that. On one hand, I HAVE been super productive with PI since I’ve been there in part, I think, because my time is now apportioned differently and I have to use it well. I also believe the interactions with others and the schedule helps keep me focused. On the other, though, I miss the freedom to fart around. (LOL)
We agreed that I would work 3 days at 6 hours instead of 4 days at 4.75. so I’ll have 2 days free a week instead of just one now. YEY!
Now, this doesn’t count as productive but it IS fun!
I’ve been listening to a book through Audible.com called “Gone Girl” – and it’s gotten really good. I don’t read much fiction anymore (those goofy Twilight books don’t count!) so this is a treat. It dragged a bit in the beginning but has picked up speed lately and yesterday I probably listened for over an hour. Sooo good.
Plus, I can listen to it as I’m driving to and from work. Because of the clairaudient thing, I absorb information so easily that I prefer to listen to books, classes and many things rather than read them now. Maybe that’s why I’ve stepped away from reading a bit – easier for me to ‘get it’ by listening. (Don’t make me tell you how damn many books I have on Kindle that I even forgot I bought. Have mercy!)
Duty and I are going to the beach soon (extra large WOO HOOO!) and I think I will get a few more books for my iPhone so I can listen as I am hanging out by the water. I can’t think of anything better. (for reals, yo.)
