Tchotchkes and other stuff.

Just stopping in long enough to say that on this Tuesday in January, I took Pete for a walk wearing shorts and a tank top. That is, I was wearing the shorts and tank top. Pete was not. Anyway, it was a balmy 74 degrees according to my thermometer, which may have been rendered inaccurate five days ago when it was 5.9 degrees, but I'm going to take the nice weather, whatever the official statistics were.

Then I came home and submitted my discussion board thingy (that's a technical term) for the week, and also wrote a 7-page paper that I will submit tomorrow.

Also, I was witness to the use of the word tchotchke in two separate instances today, and for whatever reason, it struck me as odd. I can't even remember the last time I heard or saw that word, and then—BAM—twice in one day. Isn't that strange?


Maybe it's because of all the work and not enough rest.

Be thankful ~

I had to look up tchotchke. Thank you for expanding my vocabulary today.
