Monday and Taifa has her Priorities Straight

Greetings everyone who may have stumbled on to this blog post. Hope you enjoy!

So, the Monday after “Super Sunday” and I’m up early though off to a slow start. Call it lack of motivation or not enough sleep. The lack of sleep had nothing to do with the Super Bowl or any late night partying. Honestly, I did not watch a down of the game. Nothing against fans of American Football, I just have not a great deal of interest in the game these days.

As mentioned, I was up early today. My dog Taifa woke me up with her barking at the door to my flat around 5:30am. She was guarding the apartment against the building super who was cleaning the stairs and the landings. In Taifa’s earnest quest to warn intruders to keep out (and away from her stash of treats) she managed to get me up.

After an early morning walk, I opted for breakfast and she opted to go back to sleep (as pictured).

Not the most flattering photo of Taifa, but she does look really peaceful.

I admire my dog, she is very independent (almost cat like) and she has converted my apartment into her bedroom. Taifa is rarely to be fussed about most things and she can find comfort in every room.

Taifa will not go into the bathroom though, at least not voluntarily. I believe she considers the bathroom an evil place, where she gets baths.

How does she have her priorities straight. Well, besides her ability to sleep anywhere and anytime, she takes life as it comes. Taifa enjoys being outdoors, time for her to sniff, play and meditate.

I am not a sniffer, but the play and meditation time sound really good. Regular naps are quite good too. She is a lucky girl, Taifa found a human that appreciates her and respects her choices. Good girl!

Okay, not much of a second post here. I’m still a bit unmotivated, but felt I should at least write something. I’ll have better days, better posts and sometimes not so great ones. Be patient.

Not Much Wisdom

I last took up my keyboard to blog when I was working in Kenya. I wrote, for a small audience, about my experiences working in a new place. I got a bit busy during my 3-year stint working with AMPATH, so my time blogging fell by the wayside.

I’m going to return to sharing my thoughts (again for a small audience) and the topics this time will vary widely. I plan to write about technology, cycling, Arsenal, my dog Taifa, politics (yep), science and what ever else comes up. I hope this will be a regular thing and that content will flow, but no guarantees.

Essentially expect long form Twitter. I hope things will be insightful and of value. I’ll try to take things seriously and to have some fun. I will do my best to back up statements so this isn’t just opinion. I do caution you (few?) readers that you will probably find “not much wisdom” in what is about to happen.

All the best!
