Some Days Are Just Like That

It’s been sort of a strange day.

I stayed up way too late last night watching a meeting of my local Board of Supervisors, and woke up this morning feeling foggy and sleepy. No surprise.

I had some meetings and non-writing tasks to complete, and they went well. Always good, though they kept me quite busy.

I made way too ambitious a dinner for a Wednesday. It was tasty.

And I got some sad news, which is never fun, and which has me feeling pretty down.

And between all of it, I haven’t had much time to sit and write today. I don’t write every day, but I’m never super pleased when I feel like I can’t write, as opposed to just choosing not to. Anyone else feel that way?

Anyway, I’m just not quite myself today, I think. I don’t have any interesting thoughts or stories to share, and I’m tired. Some days are just that way, I guess.

On Friday, I’ll post some pictures of 2021’s first snow, but until then, enjoy this admittedly low-quality video of my dad, my uncle, and me playing one of our favorite songs at a little café in southwest Virginia. This is from a few years ago, but John Prine never goes out of style.

  1. I so get you, Katie. There are some off days where I just feel ‘meh’. On those days no matter how hard I try to write, I can’t. Even if it’s just finishing a draft and posting it. It is so frustrating when I just can’t write when I want to. 🙈
    Love your voice and that harmonica makes the song sound so country.

    • It’s super frustrating! But I’m feeling much better today, so maybe I’ll catch up a bit. 🙂 Glad you liked the song! I’ve always envied how my uncle can play the harmonica. Maybe one of these days I’ll learn it myself.

    • So true! I find that if I’ve had a really busy day, the next day, I just can’t get motivated to do much. The good thing is, life’s not a race. 🙂 But it’s so frustrating, nonetheless!

      Thank you! I try to post music videos pretty regularly. I need to record some new stuff.
