Did some light housework today. Just enough to feel like I'm not a total slug.
Filled up the bird feeders with suet cakes. This is purely a selfish thing because I love watching all the feathered rats no more than 6 feet from where I sit. I've seen at least 6 different kinds of woodpeckers and there may be more. Our normal array of titmouses and chickadees come by, and my new favorite visitor, a flicker! She (he?) is so big and beautifully colored and spotted.
I also have a dish I leave on my plant shelf of birdseed for the squirrels. They don't bother the suet quite as much this way, and I do enjoy watching them as well.
I spent a lot of time today studying for my ham test on the 29th. I am in the "I could probably eek through right now" phase, so I should be able to increase that to a good comfort level over the next 12 days.
I have to be at work tomorrow for an "in service" day. I'm just not feeling it with all the secretiveness that precedes them. Honestly. Treat me as an adult. Let me know what to expect and then let me form my own opinions.
I found out this isn't the dreaded Challenge day crap...that's in February. This is a Question behind the Question review/training. There may be some valuable stuff, so...and this is the important part...I'll listen with an open mind.
I don't think that there's anything that can be done about the Challenge crap at this point. People have pushed us too far with the "clique" mentality...and isn't that what Challenge Day is supposed to destroy. Can anyone say 'hypocrisy'? I knew ya could.
So...into the fray I go tomorrow. At least it isn't Challenge Day.
