Day 3250: Numbers

I’ve written many numbers of blog posts about numbers and here is another 1!

I have difficulty remembering numbers. There have been a number of times when somebody tells me a number and I forget it before I have a chance to write it down. (By the way, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve rewritten that previous sentence.)

When I’ve been scheduling therapy appointments for next year, I consistently enter the year number as 2021, and the hospital computer system replies “PAST.” I can’t get the number 2022 into my head.

Repairing the damage to our home because of the leak from the upstairs shower is going to cost a lot of money, but I don’t know the exact numbers yet.

1 day before Thanksgiving, I give thanks that I have 1 son, 1 husband, 1 ex-husband, 2 cats, and a good number of friends.

Do you see numbers in my images for today?

Personally, I’m glad that my 1 kid is in my house.

It took Michael 3 times to perfect this tofu dish …

… so that all 3 of us loved it.

Here is song #1 from Anaïs Mitchell’s 2010 concept album Hadestown, 6 years before it debuted as a stage musical.

I’ve listened to that beautiful track a number of times.

I look forward to the comments about this “numbers” post, below.

I’m very, very, very grateful for the numbers of people who read this blog, including YOU.

  1. As I give thanks in (still) 2021, I cherish that you are one heck of a friend in my life, Ann.

  2. I see Joan and harley making numbers right off the bat – Joan, a backwards 4 and harley a #1!

  3. The cats pics offer: first – paw and tail X = 10
    second – paw 1
    third – paws 11

  4. Michael’s tofu dish really does look perfect and perfected. I would love to taste it!

    I am very sorry to hear that your repairs to the inside of your home will be expensive; the outside repairs looked expensive, too. I hope the numbers come in as low as possible.

  5. There was a series of Peanuts comic strips that introduced a kid named “5”, who explained that his father believed in the future everyone would have numbers instead of names. My favorite moment is when the kid meets Snoopy who thinks, “I can never keep names straight. Did he say his name was ‘5’ or ‘V’?” I also have trouble with names but for some reason numbers stick with me. I wish it were the other way around.

  6. There’s always a number of interesting and valid points in your posts Ann.

    I think individually, we are all numbers or quotient of a bigger number …. I love the saying on your teabag. I wish you a serene Thanksgiving, Ann and group

    The number of places that Joan finds to perch precariously cracks me up.

  9. Sometimes numbers are used to form a system, a code, a language or statistic, so that all becomes quantified, measurable, and ultimately justified and understood by human civilization.
