Peak oil, the term for the time when we have, or will have, used the most oil per some period of time, like per year. According to some analysis, we have already hit peak oil! In 2019! However, while it’s worthy of celebration, it’s hardly worthwhile to celebrate in the bigger scheme of things. It’s like being down 50-0 in an American football game and scoring a touchdown and convert (7 points) just before the half.
Most blogs have a theme to them. If you hadn’t noticed, this blog is like a repository for all kinds of things I write, and create for people to use, except my poetry that has its own dedicated blog to keep things “organized” for me. At times, I have changed the blog tagline to indicate a themed phase I might have been in, which would have made no sense for all the people visiting for previous content because those changes tended to be big. Themes have ranged, in no particular order, from writings, to fashion, personal tests, art, screen wallpapers, Facebook associated stuff, new vocabulary learned, and most recently back to creative writings on my two year journey to do writing more seriously. Less than three months into that journey, I have refined the focus to change the blog identity again, but only with a tweak this time.
In a few hours, it’ll be the Sunday morning where we change the clock back an hour where I live for Daylight Savings Time. It’s a stupid thing to be doing as all the science shows, but I don’t have a say to it so I just have to adapt to it best I can.
Since turning the clocks back an hour means I’ll be getting up earlier than usual, I’ll deter that by staying up an hour later than usual. I might even stay up an hour and a half or two just to be sure I sleep in tomorrow to get up at my “regular” time rather than become a morning person. I’m a night owl who is at my most creative at night and I’m going to keep it that way… starting with this creative idea in the night. 🙂
Recently, I thought about how great it’d be if the sewing machines with electronics these days came with a stitch count feature. And maybe ten different counters, at that, while they’re putting in the counting features. A few for different needles, say, and the rest for different garments, as many of us who sew, don’t sew one garment or item all the way through before starting on another.
Mother’s Day is a huge holiday in North America as lots of people get all kinds of things for their Moms. For all the great gifts out there, though, that one could buy, most people would probably agree that something you make is more valued, even if it might be less useful. This year, though, I thought of something to do better. I adopted a minor lifestyle change Mom had suggested to me for some time now.
