#TuesdayThoughts: Vacant

Standard

It’s rainy today. I’m feeling sniffly, and I hope it’s not the beginnings of a cold. No one wants that.

Especially me.

Perhaps more coffee will solve it. Perhaps not. But it might be worth a try.

It’s quiet, outside and inside, and my mind is oddly quiet too. I say “oddly” because I usually have a stream of thoughts, one after another after another; sometimes they all crowd together at once.

Not today. My money’s on that potential cold.

Just as well, I need to keep my head on my editing as I vacillate on NaNoWriMo. Right now I’m leaning toward not doing it.

That can always change.

I’m off to edit. Have a marvelous Tuesday.

#MondayThoughts: OK Then

Standard

Mondays have a way of showing up, one way or another. And here we are, another one.

I think they feel harder because of inertia, the effort of not moving that much to getting up to at least a light trot. But it’s OK.

We can do it.

It’s a gray day today, not sure if we’re supposed to get rain, the clouds seem indifferent. The trees are in their full fall glory, reds and yellows set off among faded greens, the last show of color before the winter comes.

Winter. Again. Can you believe it?

I may try to stick to a single cup of coffee today, but you and I both know, it’s really not up to me.

We’ll see.

It’s miles of editing ahead of me, and I’ll have to decide on NaNoWriMo. Still very much on the fence. How’s that for balance?

Have a wonderful Monday.

#AccountaClub Friday, October 18, 2019

Standard

Hello Friday! And with Friday it’s time to talk about how we’re doing on our various goals.

So I’ve been editing, not as much or as quickly as I should, but it’s happening, and that’s something. I do love editing on a tablet, it’s remarkable how close it is to using paper, but I can actually read my notes later.

That’s a bonus.

Fitness has been five days, five workouts, and I liked this week, maybe because it was mostly strength and somehow it feels like less work. Though it’s pretty challenging.

Who knows.

So that’s my week. How was yours?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Eventually

Standard

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

EXACTLY ten words.

It’s that easy! Except it’s not easy, it’s pretty challenging.

Ready? Here’s mine:

Nature won, brutal civilization lost, and Earth reclaimed the land.

#WednesdayWisdom: Gloomy

Standard

It’s a gray day, with uneven clouds that may or may not rain. I could check the weather and find out, but why ruin the mystery?

We’re halfway through October already, and it feels like this year is the last of the bathwater circling the drain.

Does anyone still take baths anymore?

Regardless, there it goes, glug glug.

November is looming and I’ve yet to make a decision on NaNoWriMo. I don’t usually commit until the day before. Last year I got a terrible cold, and just couldn’t finish.

So who knows with this year. Challenges are good, but they’re not always the thing you need, and that’s OK too.

Consider that your wisdom for this Wednesday. Have a great day.

#TuesdayThoughts: Dull

Standard

It’s cloudy but glare-y out today, I’m not really sure how that works. I’m under-caffeinated, but yesterday had some caffeine side-effects so I think I’m going to have to moderate today.

Moderation is the worst.

I just solved a complex putting-away problem though. I got some lovely serving bowls from Costco, but realized I had nowhere to store them. But with a little bit of rearranging magic, boom, suddenly there’s space.

Things had to get slightly separated, though; some of my super-fancy dollar store wine glasses were too tall for the shelf I wanted them on. But needs must, so they say.

Given that that’s my most interesting tidbit for you this morning, I think I’m not what you’d call off to a roaring start.

We’ll see what we can do about that. Have a great Tuesday.

#MondayThoughts: Again?!

Standard

Is it just me or is Monday getting sneaky and jumping back into the rotation more often than its fair share? There seem to be a lot of Mondays.

So many Mondays.

You know what that means. I’m having more coffee. I mean how is one measly (and by “measly” I mean flagon of) coffee going to get me through an entire Monday?

Exactly, hypothetical reader. It isn’t.

So do I finish the post first? Or make the next cup first?

I think we both know the answer to that one.

And it’s brewing. I bet you didn’t even miss me.

It’s a bright, sunny day, though it’s probably chilly. Yesterday for the Chicago Marathon, I couldn’t stay out long, it was colder than it’s been for a long time. And it took me forever to warm back up.

Better ready myself. This is only the beginning.

It will be a week of editing, so I’ve sharpened my metaphorical pencils. Have a great Monday, whichever Monday you’re on.
