I am typing today’s blog post using a Bluetooth keyboard that is communicating with my new iPad Mini 4! Admittedly typing on this keyboard, which is very cramped to accommodate the length of the iPad, is a little harder than I had anticipated. Many, many years of typing as part of my profession has trained my fingers to make certain maneuvers that are not identical to what is needed to hit the proper keys. But I will continue trying.
While fine for typing in English, this keyboard will be useless for typing up German texts. Oh well, for that I will have to return to the method of typing on the pane of glass that is the iPad’s built-in keyboard.
Because I had been alerted to the delivery of my new keyboard, and since I have no faith in Humankind to leave well enough alone, it canceled all of my post-work plans and went directly home. Of course the package was on the front stoop, but at least this delivery person tried to hide it a bit behind the ironwork.
A body at rest stays at rest. It’s not my theory, it’s a Law of Physics! Anyway, I was at home, figured out what I could throw together in the name of “dinner” and decided to stay at rest for the rest of the evening. Minor advances were made in the name of “progress” but nothing about which I can boast.
No smoke detector noises were heard all evening.
Back To Minimalism
This afternoon I have my (hopefully) final physical therapy session. After therapy I plan to go somewhere I have not been in far too long — LA Fitness.
Even though physical therapy is in Old Fourth Ward I will be reversing my direction to go to the LA Fitness in Atlantic Station, or perhaps the one near Fifth Street; traffic will dictate my decision.
Also on the busy docket for this evening are trips to — IKEA, Warby Parker, Target, Lowes, and a yet-to-be-determined place to eat dinner — not necessarily in that order.
Assuming that I have any gumption left when I arrive home I will resurrect my desire to rid my house of unneeded shit.
Have a great Thursday.
