#MondayThoughts: Dragging

Standard

I am just not in gear today. I have another cup of coffee going, there was never an “if” with it, and I’m trying to get myself in motion.

My shirt was on backwards this morning, to give you an idea.

The weekend was great, busy and fun, and the truth is I ate all the things I wanted to eat. Whether that means I’m on my way to a headache I guess only time will tell.

Though at least the coffee seems to be kicking in. Thank goodness for that.

It’s bright and sunny after a partially rainy weekend. Yesterday started with bold thunderstorms, and it seemed impossible that the Air & Water Show would happen. But it did. I didn’t see much, I was too far away from the lakefront, but the planes buzzed overhead now and then anyway.

Confession time. I had a little bit of chocolate with the second cup of coffee and I think that’s the miracle worker.

Well I’m off to try to climb the mountain of Monday. Have a wonderful day.

I’m taking a break today, but feel free to tell me how you’re doing with your goals!

It’s time for ten word stories! Using the photo above, write a ten word story. Exactly ten words.

Ready?

Here’s mine.

#WednesdayWisdom: Switching things up

Standard

Fancy magazines talk about “rotating your art,” which is what I suppose I recently did, though “art” makes it sound much fancier. They’re pieces I’ve picked up, from art fairs to Michael’s, just because I like them. And sometimes you get tired of staring at the same things.

Shrug.

So I did a little rearranging. Not sure if I like it, but that’s OK, I can always reshuffle. It’s freeing.

In the smallest of ways.

Sometimes a tiny change is all we need. A little variance, something only slightly different. It switches up the way we see things, makes us notice things we’ve looked at blankly for ages.

Not a whole lot of investment. Not a whole lot of risk.

And that’s where my brain is on this Wednesday. Have a marvelous day.

#TuesdayThoughts: a List

Standard
  1. Wow I’m groggy today.
  2. How am I so groggy today? I was so perky yesterday.
  3. I need to reheat my coffee.
  4. Maybe I need to make more coffee.
  5. Is Tuesday supposed to be more of a grind than Monday?
  6. I’m so groggy today.
  7. Why haven’t I reheated my coffee?
  8. You should be able to write while napping.
  9. I guess you can. It’s called “dreaming.” Not great plotting though.
  10. My reheated coffee is too hot.
  11. Wow I’m groggy today.

#MondayThoughts: Invigorated!…?

Standard

Well I did not wake up this morning bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I had disturbing dreams and then could not go back to sleep for a while.

When it got in range of time to get up, I was both awake and unable to keep my eyes open. It’s a weird combo.

But I did my workout, and afterward, I felt amazing. Not just better, not just good, but amazing.

The power of exercise.

It’s a gray Monday and it’s probably going to rain. I’m not sure if well get those darkly-clouded dramatic skies, though. Right now it’s a flat, uniform gray and the air looks damp with humidity.

Not what I’d call writing weather, but at least it’s not “Come outside it’s gorgeous” weather. We had a lot of that this past weekend.

I suspect with the lack of sleep I’m going to crash at some point, but until then, I’ll ride the wave. Have a great Monday.

#AccountaClub Friday, August 9, 2019

Standard

I have flitting summer brain right now, as we move into August and Fall lurks just around the corner. It’s been a quick summer but they always seem that way, don’t they?

The dog days. Why they’re called that, I don’t know, but that they are.

Of course I had to look it up. It has to do with the constellation Sirius and not at all with heat, which I’d assumed.

I like the lazy dog version better.

Not going to linger today, not much to report writing-wise, only bits and bobbles, and the fitness was five days, five workouts.

How was your week?
