What is the moral of this story?
Eastern Market. Taken with my camera.
Yesterday I made headway on several fronts.
Flymageddon is over; I found only a dozen dead flies this morning, saw one or two buzzing around, but they won't last long. I didn't even bother to kill them. Out in the grotto all is peaceful and clean. Once again I have successfully defended the chateau against unwanted invaders. My hope is that I will not have to do battle again for a long time.
With the flies dispatched at last, I decided to take on the installation of the wireless router. It has been sitting in a box in the closet since last year. Initially I didn't install it because I didn't need to, but since I've had the iphone, I've wanted the wi-fi so I can more easily goof around on the phone. It was not hard, not nearly the project I feared it would be. Who would have thought I could wrap my mind around this? I had no confidence I could manage, but indeed it wasn't even hard.
The success of these experiences propelled me forward; I tackled a couple of other household tasks that I would have, in the past, asked someone else to do for me. Again, I prevailed.
It was a satisfying day of accomplishment - and chagrin. I have a very hard time believing in myself in most situations, the exception being in the treatment room. Professionally I am comfortable with my skill, but elsewhere I often feel like a total ditz, incapable and rather helpless. For heaven's sake, this is not true! Yesterday was a great reminder to try, try again.
When will I ever learn? I am not weak or stupid. Neither am I all-powerful, but at least I should try, yes? I say yes.
Happy Sunday, y'all. Shalom.
Taken with the iphone. I'm getting it now - that I can't take the same pics with iphone that I take with my camera. Hence I'm starting to enjoy the iphone camera for what it has to offer. Fun!
