Friday is almost over. Sometimes I think: “Thank, God, the week is gone!” but other times I feel the inexorable passing of time and it’s like everything is going by very fast and nothing gets done.
Well, some things get done because one cannot live without, but it feels like it’s just mundane stuff.
Eh, I will admit that not everything can wear the stamp of something out of ordinary as life is made mostly of ordinary stuff that must be repeated over and over again, even if one would dream of extraordinary things and adventure.
I am one of those. I’d have loved to explore and to discover things.
I can’t say I haven’t had my part of exploration, though. I have had the chance to explore quite a lot in my youth and even after. I liked hiking and I doubt that there’s any mountain back home that I’ve never climbed. I liked exploring knowledge and I’ve read extensively. I liked making unusual friends and from all walks of life and I did.
However, I don’t want to get melancholic or philosophic tonight. The weekend is almost here and it will be busy enough to take my mind from another week of anodyne stuff.
I suppose this flu that is so persistent and refuses to go away after such a long time is also to blame for my mood but I cannot allow it to darken your mood as well.
It was downright cold today showing that spring, which was dangled before our eyes at the beginning of the week, was just an illusion.
That didn’t stop people mulling around though, and, unexpectedly, the children also appeared to play outside. I was sure I’d never see them playing around as they hide inside their houses playing video-games all day long, as they parents say, and it was very surprising they did so today when it was so cold but didn't get their noses out of the house when it was sunny and almost seventeen degrees over zero.
Do you remember the supermarket carts that ornate the walls of almost every other house in the compound? I've told you about. As I see, they are getting into fashion and not only in our complex. I saw people leaving other supermarkets with them. They come handy, though.
Well, the carts we see around here, in the complex, were turned into racing cars today and the noise was unbearable for over an hour.
That was enough to make me regret that the children abandoned their video-games and came outside to play. Rex barked like crazy and I couldn’t really blame him. It was like we were both in a barrel and someone was banging metal things over our heads. The noise was deafening.
The entire exercise exhausted him and he slept for the remaining of the afternoon. I do hope that his afternoon nap will not stop him to sleep during the night.
I’ve seen cats playing in the dark before. Well, cats are creatures that manage quite well in the dark, but this is the first dog I’ve ever had that can play at night with no light.
That’s not a blessing. Unfortunately I have very good hearing and very light sleep. Tonight I’d enjoy sleeping as I woke up very early after a night of tossing and sneezing and coughing and tomorrow I have to wake up early again. Even right now, I feel my eyes closing, which is quite out of ordinary as I usually do not feel like going to bed before midnight.
But sometimes, things out of ordinary happen. They might be big or small. The important thing is that they do happen and they tear through the monotony in a way or another.
I hope you’d have extraordinary things happen to you this weekend, and I do hope that they will bring you joy.
Why won’t you let me know if it is so? Drop a line, if you have time!
Have a nice weekend, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing!

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
