Shillings, Sorting and Sunset

Julia had a restful day today and, as a result, is feeling better.Β  She seems surprised by this, despite events proving quite clearly that her bad back is linked to doing too much.

She’s just been reading a report on research done on Mensa members. It seems that the hairier you are, the smarter you are. She then offered the opinion that I should delay the remodelling of my beard, which I have been contemplating for some time. I’m not sure the correlation works quite as clearly as that, but it’s something to think about.

I wouldn’t want to decrease my IQ by cutting my hair, after all, by using ebay I’m already damaging my intelligence quite enough.

You don’t need a great deal of intelligence to sort shillings, lift boxes and organise accessories, which have been my main activities of day.

It was still light when we left the shop at 4.20, which is a good sign, and I took several shots of the sky at that point, before doing a few more in the supermarket car park whilst buying things for tea. I tried for some shots of the tiny sliver of moon but it wasn’t light enough and the long exposure meant that they all ended up shaky.

    It is wonderful when we first notice the lengthening of the days in January! It helps when we have a little clear sky. I’m so pleased to read that Julia is feeling a little better.

    Good to hear Julia is doing better. Sometimes rest is the best medicine.

    The one on hairiness and intelligence is a new one to me. Perhaps that is why our long-haired Mr. Lucio cat seems smarter than his humans. πŸ™‚

    Yes, so glad Julia is feeling better. Rest does a lot to help, but as we know, some people have a hard time resting.

    Okay Samson, don’t get your hair cut, but I’m glad Julia is feeling better. I know it sure doesn’t take much these days for my back to hurt.
