I suppose I should finish that question...'What does a Wug living in Holyoke do...the day after a bad storm, when the sun has come out and it is just absolutely beautiful?!!!' :-) ......The answer is.....Read! :-)
And thanks to the Holyoke Public Library I have a great book to read too!...Pride and Prejudice by Miss Jane Austen. :-) Yes....I'm actually reading a book by Jane Austen, instead of looking at a movie 'based on a book' by Jane Austen!! ^_^
And guess what?!...I'm loving it!!! I'm already waaaay into it!
In fact, the photo shows Chapter 15, but I'm actually further along than this now, due to some late night reading. Late night reading I was doing because of something else a 'Wug' was doing in Holyoke the day after the storm....'daytime' sleeping!! I slept a lot yesterday too!!...I was napping and turning...Turning, and then napping...all day!! (I think my body is trying to fight off a cold or something.)
The good thing about the late night reading though, is that it was keeping my hubby company while he was reorganizing and labeling the Office/Storage room!...No, he couldn't sleep anymore either! LOL
I complained a little while ago that I still couldn't get to everything in this room....and that even if I got to it, I didn't know what was in some of these bins! So.....
...he fixed the problem.....while at the same time listening, and occasionally giggling along with me, at the silliness of Mrs. Bennet and her husband and daughters! :-)
Now, what 'else' does a 'Wug' living in Holyoke do the day after a storm?!...She checks the news to see if there was any real damage after the storm. And unfortunately, she finds out...thanks to the crack reporting of WWLP.com 22News...that there was. :-(
The middle of the Old Holyoke Mill was blown away in the strong winds!!! :-(
The photo below is what it looked liked inside...
They're saying that now the remnants of the building are gonna be torn down. :-( You can look at the video below to see the rest of the story.
I guess my hubby's sunflowers weren't the only casualty in the storm the other night! :-(
'I'm not gonna think about it....I'm not gonna think about it!' O_0 Strange....I sound like Scarlett in Gone With The Wind! ... Why am I thinking about 'Gone With The Wind'?!!!! ^_^ Hubby's flowers and the Old Holyoke Mill building are both gone with the wind?! Could that be why?!!!!.......My brain! My brain!!!! ^_^
Anyway!!!!!!!...I was also doing something else with my time yesterday...Yep! Crocheting!! :-)
The latest black and white scarf/shawl is well under way!....My Jane Austen book is well under way!...My hubby's vacation is well under way! Not all good, but still...there are a lot of things going on in Holyoke the day after the storm. :-)
By the way, hubby uncovered something of mine while he was moving things around. Something I had totally forgotten about. It will involve a new project for the 'Wug'!! :-)) I'll be adding it to my list of things to do in Holyoke...after some scarves and a Jane Austen book are all finished.
I'll show you what he found tomorrow. :-] Right now, if my brain slows down enough, I'm off to......Well, you know!!! ^_^
My Brain, My Brain
My brain just does
what it wants and when it wants!
Some days, all of it's positives
is what it flips and flaunts.
It triggers really fast,
and all my brain cells start to meet.
It stores all kinds of things,
and it runs long, without feet!
It fires happiness,
is organized, remembers well.
But then that "Bing!" will come
as if someone just hit a bell.
It slows and starts to ponder.
And what it ponders is not good!
Those days it might as well
be just a solid block of wood.
Can't remember what to do,
or if it already did;
Thoughts are scattered everywhere
and all my memories are hid.
Yes, my brain just does
what it wants and how it wants!
My job is staying with it,
and responding when it taunts.
