#WednesdayWisdom: Iffy.

Standard

Is it wise to have another cup of coffee?

Probably not.

Am I going to have one anyway?

What do you think?

Perhaps I’ll make it a half-caff. Perhaps.

It’s a slightly hazy Wednesday, and the Roomba is acting like a naughty puppy, always underfoot. Everywhere I go, it follows.

And I have made the coffee. But I put in too much coffee so I’m going to make it iced. Coffee to coffeenade.

Besides that, the day is proceeding at a reasonable pace and I have managed to not bring down my mood by watching “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Maybe later. But maybe not. The cool thing is I don’t have to.

Coffeenade? Excellent. So good I just misspelled “excellent.”

Where is the wisdom today? Umm… the wisdom is “try stuff. “

There you go.

Anyway, I told you it was iffy.

Have marvelous Wednesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: And thinking

Standard

I had weird dreams this morning after I woke up too early. They involved “Bob’s Burgers” and an overwhelming sense of unreality.

Which they would.

I’m careening into Tuesday with a caffeine underload (why can’t that be a thing? It should be a thing) and lots of ideas swirling. It’s lovely out, real summer, and I’m wondering how many times is too many times to reheat coffee.

Maybe I should toss in some ice cubes instead. See?

Adaptable.

It feels like a nitty-gritty day, which any writer can tell you turns into a Strangest Search Day, a cascading series of rabbit holes, each more banal yet fascinating than the last.

Better hop to it.

I hope you have an excellent Tuesday.

#AcountaClub Friday, July 5, 2019 (sorta)

Standard

I’m taking a bit of a break today, but feel free to tell me about your week!

How did it go?

#AccountaClub Friday, June 14, 2018

Standard

I guess we’re sticking to weekly? Habits are habits, it seems.

It’s felt like a longer week than it was, but that tends to happen in this brave new timeline. So much information constantly coming at us makes everything feel like it’s elongated.

Yet here we are.

So on to the task at hand, the week. If you were following along this week, you know already that I had a huge breakthrough with a book that’s been sitting. I’ve made progress in it, and it’s careening toward a conclusion, which is a nice feeling. Especially when something has stalled for so long.

When it comes to fitness, five days, five workouts, though Monday had a bit of a problem as the service wasn’t working properly. I substituted a really fun dance workout that was in the site library, and onward we went.

That’s my week. How was yours?

#AccountaClub Friday, June 7, 2019

Standard

Bet you’ve had baited breath since…Monday, given that the Friday post didn’t post. But here we are.

I think it’s a habit now, and habits are hard to break.

Actually, good habits seem easier to break than bad ones. Wonder why that is.

OK, I’ve distracted myself long enough.

So this week. A bit on the writing and editing front, but nothing to really post about. I seem to be in the thought-heavy part of creativity, with lots of ideas floating but they’re not quite solid enough for words on a page.

I need to roll up my sleeves and get messy.

I do want credit for doing laundry because doing laundry annoys me to an extent I don’t understand given that I don’t have to go over to the lake and pound it against the rocks. I just have to use the laundry room. And yet we all have those things, don’t we?

Workouts were good this week, great trainers all week, great workouts all week and it felt a little less of a grind than last week. And thanks for all the encouragement on that front, you guys know how challenging it can be.

So that’s me. How was your week?

#WednesdayWisdom but only if you say so.

Standard


I have a whole lot to do today and I don’t want to do it.

Did I want to work out? Nope.

Did I? I did.

Did I want to blog? Not really.

Am I? Well, I think that one speaks for itself.

It’s a grind kind of a day. One reluctant foot at a time. The specific reasons right now are many, but it’s also a thing that happens.

Sometimes you have to tell yourself that any progress is good progress. A half-inch forward is still forward. Some days are tougher, and that’s how it goes.

I hope today is not one of those for you. Have a great Wednesday.

#AtoZChallenge: Yay!

Standard

(Is it just me or does this yak have great hair?)

So I had to fax something today. Fax. As in information sent over a telephone line. Woo. Hoo.

And before that, I called to verify the fax number. It required maneuvering past two different computer systems and two different people just to verify, and when I got there, the woman I spoke to didn’t have this number on file.

But she was able to verify the correspondence.

And then the attempt to fax. And for some reason my printer which also has fax capabilities because why not, didn’t give me a confirmation.

It’s hard to live in 1999 while simultaneously in 2019.

Back to the yay.

We’re one day away from finishing A to Z! I’ve only been half a challenger this month, as I’ve been a terrible visitor but I’m going to still try to catch up, perhaps as part of #MAYkingItWork, which will be #AccountaClub, essentially, but in May with a focus on finishing up some nagging projects.

Feel free to hop on board!

And that’s Monday, soggy, rainy and technologically challenged. Hope yours runs smoothly.
