am allowing myself only three irritations today. The
first came before I woke up this morning. The alarm
clock had mysteriously been set to go off an hour early,
Mist is the only one in the household denying responsibility!
The second irritation was looking around the living space and realizing there were last night's dishes to be done before I could begin my bread baking.
The third irritation was my own chipped response to a perfectly reasonable question, put to me by Attila as we sat eating breakfast. Really!
And that is all I am allowing myself today by way of irritations. My irritation quota has been filled.
Today's solar eclipse will not be visible. I am not sure it would be visible from central Ontario, even if the sky were clear. There is veil of snow hanging from the thick blanket of cloud, that is draped over the landscape. There will be no observation of the sky or of the heavens beyond.
According to the theory of the "butterfly effect", we will be affected by that which we cannot see and do not perceive, to perhaps an even greater degree than by that which is tangibly evident.
It is time for a few indulgences. Pizza. Cheese cake. It is a meal that is not exactly heart healthy. But today, I want heart warming and will return to heart healthy diligence tomorrow.
But first, the dishes need doing!

A sunny morning view through the lens of cabin fever. Seeing the sunny side of this view requires focus and a great deal of effort. The colour deficit becomes self evident.
