This week’s word from Aaron is fallout. Have you looked at his blog yet? Thought about joining Sunday Scribblings? Take the plunge today!
I’m kind of feeling this one on a personal level today – already the day is a little off. I had planned to have a nice lovely breakfast of french toast and bacon, which is honestly very rare for me. First of all, I literally can not remember the last time I bought bacon was. I hate cooking bacon. It’s messy and it splatters and I like it super crispy so I’m usually scared that the fire alarms will go off. But I planned ahead today. I cooked the bacon YESTERDAY.
And I wanted to sleep in. Instead of getting up at 6, I wanted to get up at 7. Which would have been lovely! But the roommate woke me up at 5:20, and 6:30 by going outside. I was probably already rousing naturally since this woke me up, but still. He then decided to cook his own big Sunday breakfast making a lot of noise, turning on the fan over the stove, all before 7. I could have gotten up but I laid in bed, stewing a little bit but also thinking that if I stayed in bed until 7, when I did eventually get out, he’d be out of the kitchen. And he was! I also took that awake time to pray for a correction in attitude today. I think I’ll be praying that a lot today.
Then after breakfast, it was walk time! I’ve been leaving my house around 7:10 lately since I’m up at 6 every day. But today it was an hour later. Even with the cooking of the big breakfast. Since I was an hour later, which I knew I would be by sleeping in, it was hotter and more sweaty that normal.
And now I’m here, typing this, instead of doing it earlier, because I only decided to sleep in when I went to bed last night. Like I said, usually I am up at 6 and home from my walk by 8:30, not 9:30, which gives me time to write a post for Sunday Scribblings and get it posted before 9. Or I’ll even write it a day or two earlier. But not today.
But then it worked out perfectly, since the topic for today is fallout, which I take to mean “consequences” and this is the consequence of my own actions. Perfect topic this week, Aaron!
