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.

Day 3137: What do you do when you’re overwhelmed?

Last night, after an overwhelming day at work, I tweeted this:

The responses to that question have been overwhelming. Not surprisingly, many people are overwhelmed these days and they’re sharing their experience about that on Twitter.

Here’s my response, when somebody asked what I do when I’m overwhelmed:

I didn’t mention that I also blog, take photos, and share images on WordPress.


Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “what do you do when you’re overwhelmed?”

I also listen to music when I’m overwhelmed, and here’s the overwhelmingly talented Manhattan Transfer:

What do you do when you’re overwhelmed?

I hope you don’t find my gratitude for you overwhelming.

Day 3107: A grain of salt

We should definitely take what we read on the internet with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, I just did a search for the meaning of “a grain of salt.”


What have you been taking with a grain of salt lately?

Speaking of grains of salt, Michael made a tofu dish yesterday for the first time and we all agreed it was too salty.


Next time, he’s going to use less soy sauce and add some honey. I have no reason to take this with a grain of salt.

It’s a good idea to take Twitter with a grain of salt.


Is there anything in this post you’re taking with a grain of salt (or a dash)? How about these other photos I took yesterday?


If I tell you I love the score from In the Heights, no need to take that with a grain of salt. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of “96,000” for the original Broadway cast:


Here’s “96,000” in a trailer for the movie:


Also, no need to take my gratitude with a grain of salt, so thanks to all who help me blog every day, including YOU!
