Without a doubt, May might be my favorite month. It’s just on the cusp of the greatness that is a lively summer … that is, if you live on the East Coast of the United States. The more I use the web, the more I realize that my slice of the reality screen is not the entire picture. It’s raining today, which is very nice.
It’s the only way to justify staying inside, and even then, a more limber me should be outside planting stuff in the nice wet ground. But instead, I’m enjoying the bright green view through the closed windows and working on my first full pass on the massive website that Shadow Lawn Press is becoming.
The Passover dinner is bubbling on the stove and I am sitting on the couch across the big room, surfing the web and feeling guilty that I’m not over in the kitchen cooking. I’m sitting on the couch because I was feeling guilty, while cooking, because I wasn’t working on my renewed Cleaning House project, which is chugging along nicely. It’s hard to set priorities when you don’t know what’s what. That’s the beauty of an outside job with a real live flesh-and-blood boss. He or she tells you what to do. The truth is you’re never really sure what you should be doing when you are working for and by yourself.
