Welcome back to another combined post for the two writing challenges I participate in:
- 20 Days of Chill - Spring?
- Ultimate Blog Challenge - If my blog, business of life had a theme song, what would it be and why?
Remember how I said I was grateful we've been spared from infection, quarantine, working from home and the whole shabam just the other day? Guess what: now we're in the freaking middle of it.
Colin is doing better but has to serve his five days of quarantine. PCR testing appointments aren't available until tomorrow afternoon. I do hope they will backdate the begin of his "sentence" to Saturday. That way he would be clear to train on Friday and play on Sunday.
Hubby and I tested negative and feel OK. Theoretically, being triple vaccinated, we would be allowed to go to work, but he chose to work from home. Meaning he occupies our office at home.
Which leaves me, my notebook and my mobile phone in the living room, which has been repurposed to hockey practice and storage room as you can see.
I'm frantically trying to reschedule our dentist's and hair appointments while waiting to hear about a replacement headlight for my car. The good news is I don't have to drive to practice for a few days. Enough time to get my car fixed, hopefully.
Let's get started with my two writing assignments:
In spring 2014, I wrote a post that included a dozen songs making up my life's soundtrack.
One of my all time favorite happy songs, which was also listed in above post, is Katrina and the Waves' Walking on Sunshine. Since as a whole, my life's path has been reasonably smooth, I think it is an appropriate theme song for me.
If we're just looking at the current situation though, I wanna say it's more like Life is a Rollercoaster ;-)
What about my blog? What would be an appropriate theme song?
I pick Let's get ready for this! Because, hockey. Speaking of, may I just drop a random fact here: Last week, Timo Meier, a Swiss born and raised hockey player, scored five goals for the San Jose Sharks against the Los Angeles Kings. Way to go, Timo!
On to the other prompt:
Spring, question mark. As in: can you spot any early signs of spring?
As a matter of fact I can. While temps are still slightly below or right at freezing point around here, I wanna say for at least three weeks I've been hearing birds chirping in the morning. Also, the days are getting a little bit longer.
The other day when I drove to work, I was worried about being late because it was already light outside. I actually just about made it in time. The same in the evening. You know things start to look better when you leave work at 5:30pm and it's not pitch black!
I don't know when we may expect the first snowdrops, but I'm definitely looking forward to it. They're usually a good sign telling us nature is getting ready.
I'm not an anti-winter person like some of my friends, so I'm not desperate yet. Also the Swiss winter has not been too hard. I'm certainly looking forward to more blue skies though. We live below the fog cover, so our days between November and February are usually gray.
In the meantime let's enjoy these gorgeous magnolia blooms. I took the picture last April.
Here are a couple of questions for you:
What is your life's / blog's theme song? Why?
Are you looking forward to spring?
