Back for Monday.

Standard

Well, I’m back and I can’t say I’m feeling any better about what’s going on, but here we are. I’m still at a low boil, though.

So I decided to try to find a good inspirational quote. Have you ever tried to find a good inspirational quote?

It’s harder than it looks.

I tried random quote generators, but most links were how to build random quote generators, and really, that’s not what I had in mind for my day. Or week.

I have no idea how long that would take me.

Instead I decided to focus on just one word: Breathe.

I am going to try to breathe this week, to not carry the tension of our dissolving world on my literal shoulders, hunching, tensing. My physical discomfort will change nothing.

Breathe.

Have as good a Monday as is humanly possible.

Thinking Tuesday.

Standard

So today is not Wednesday and yesterday was not Tuesday, not even last night. I was waiting for “Fosse/Verdon” to come on, and it took me the longest time to remember that it was still Monday.

Still Monday.

Though not today.

Today is legitimately Tuesday.

Honestly I think someone is messing with time, the days feel like they’re lasting a week or more lately. It would explain so much, if someone had a time machine.

And not a good someone either. No Doctor here.

It’s another sunny day and as we push on through the week, I can’t help but believe that Spring means it this time. I’ve thought that before, but now, I think it’s going to stick.

Let’s hope.

Have a great TUESDAY. Today is Tuesday, in case anyone besides me needs reminding.

#MondayThoughts because it’s really Monday

Standard

Sunshine just in time for Monday. Yesterday was bleak and chilly, and it started raining later in the afternoon. Still, I got outside at the Morton Arboretum, where the trees were in beautiful bloom.

At least it wasn’t crowded.

I’ve only got one foot in Monday, the other is somewhere else, somewhere dreamy.

I need that one.

Two feet are good. Or so I hear.

We’re nearly halfway through May already, and I feel like the year just started. But the weather is turning, in theory, and the grass is green now, in practice, and the seasons march on no matter how we feel about them.

I think this is going to be a timer week. I have so many things to get into, it always helps me to focus, because I know, for that stretch of time I work on what I’m working on and only that.

I’ll let you know how it’s going on Friday.

Have a productive Monday!

#AccountaClub Friday, May 10, 2019, #MAYkingItWork Edition

Standard

In case you’re wondering how my week went, I started the year with a 1. Which seems apt given the news of this week, and honestly it doesn’t feel like the second number would be a 9.

Given the news of this week, I have spent more time on twitter than doing my visits or comments (sorry again) but next week is another week. Trust me it’s not you I’m ignoring, it’s everyone and I’m not even ignoring you, just time is what it is.

So not great on that goal.

I had a new project vault into my mind this week and I’ve started. I had a hard time deciding on format, but I think it’s going to be fun. The whole idea is for it to be fun. Writing this week: there’s a check.

Fitness has been great, five days, five live workouts. And now I have to go run around and get things done, so let’s throw that preemptively into the mix.

How was your week? Are you #MAYkingItWork?

Ten Word Photo Prompt:

Standard

Ten word photo prompt time! Using the picture above, write a ten word story. You can have a title, but don’t go overboard.

OK, here’s mine:

Her youth silently stolen in the night, Anna plotted vengeance.

What a Wednesday

Standard

Today started off weirdly for me, mostly because of Twitter, which is clearly the root of many of my problems.

MANY.

And now I’m trying to get into the groove. Groove of what, I don’t know. On the plus side, I think the weather is evening out, which is good news for both me and my head.

Yesterday was not so.

Meanwhile I finally got a painting that’s started to annoy me off the wall, but now I need a replacement. I’ll have to work on that. Not an actual painting, that’s way above my pay grade, but replacement art. I have a photo from a very talented photographer I still need to frame, that could work.

Meanwhile it’s time to unshirk all those tasks I’ve been shirking. You know the type.

Hope you have a productive Wednesday.

To coffee or not to coffee

Standard

That is the question.

Whether ’tis better to be energized in the morning, but restless at night, and by restless, sleepless…

OK, that’s enough near-Shakespeare.

I really want the second cup of coffee. But last night I got a lot of sleep. A whole lot of sleep. Nearly eight hours of it.

Can you imagine?

So that was pretty cool. That won’t happen if I have more coffee. Decisions, Decisions.

It was one of those nights that felt like constant dreams, and in one of them, I was writing. Nearly two pages worth.

Did it have the courtesy to stick around when I woke up?

It did not.

I have no idea what I was even working on. Also, I may have been on a plane. At some point, I was on a spaceship, so I would think that would prove very inspiring.

Anyway, point is sleep is good, feeling antsy, not as good.

But that siren call of coffee.

Have a great Tuesday.
