Today, I have absolutely nothing to offer up here of any substance – but I guess that’s what qualifies this post as a PonderToot, right?
I was outside pulling a few weeds a few minutes ago and realized that my nose started feeling funny in an itchy, sniffly sort of way. Mildly annoyed, I began to tell myself that I should go inside lest I acquire a full-blown hay fever attack, or sinus headache, or hives, or, or, or…Oh, I get it. A sniffly nose could be a sly excuse to go back inside and pick up that great book I just started this morning. I am pretty good at catching myself in the act of trying to slide out of a good day’s work, but I don’t always love these realizations.
Instead, I decided to see if I could find something to distract myself from the unpleasant snorting sounds and annoying nasal twitchy-itching while actually getting some work done. Looking around, I found it – or them…10 little distractions
You can’t really tell from the photo, but these little piggies are sporting very sparkly, twinkly toenail bling. I had forgotten that I had just had a pedicure the day before (my occasional self-treat to have my “hooves done”, as I say to my husband) and was surprised to see these little bursts of glittery blueness when I looked down.
Oh, God…I am much too easily amused.
So then I realized that I didn’t notice my annoying sniffly nose when I was gazing at my twinkly toes. Ha! I decided to make a game out of pulling five weeds, then looking at my toes (toes, in general, are very interesting things to ponder and no, I do not have a toe fetish. But really, aren’t they really interesting things? They are very odd.) Even better, toes with sparkly blueness on the tips of them make me laugh. Every single time.
Pull five weeds. Look down. Laugh. Repeat.
