Dogs, Life, Thinking, Writing

A Quiet Sunday Morning (Mostly)

I spent pretty much the whole day outside from about 9am on yesterday.  The sun was shining and it warmed up to almost 50F.  I talked to both my parents on the phone.  I got most of the snow and Ice off the deck so the kids can walk on it without losing their footing.  I put the last of the bread heels out for the birds.  It was a good day.

This morning is overcast.  I am feeling very insecure today.  Like things are just not quite going to work the way they should.  Not that anything bad will happen.  But things are a little off.  So I may limit what I try to do today.  Try to keep the anxiety in check.  A shower would help but I need to wait until Chris is up to do that.  I could take a bath since the garden tub is officially cleaned out.  But it takes so long to fill… usually about 30 minutes.  Do I want to soak for a long time or just clean up?

I’m pretty sure you should hear the snores coming from this little girl wherever you are in the world!  Holy cow!  Funny thing is if she’s not snoring at night I will wake up to make sure she is ok.  Poor Stella fell off the bed in her sleep last night.  Fortunately the mattress is on the floor so it wasn’t far.  Spooked us both.  I got her back up on the bed and safely curled back up in the crook of my legs.

It is interesting to watch the different colors of the sky as the sun rises.  Even when it is overcast the colors come through.  It can be grey then it will get a blue/orange tinge to it.  It was a soft yellow/orange for a bit but now we are back to brightening greys.

I feel a bit better after writing this.  Hopefully this will continue through the day.  It’s still an odd feeling to have weekends off and be employed.  I guess I’m still getting used to a “normal” life.  Part of me worries that I shouldn’t take the time off to learn scuba diving.  Not that I shouldn’t learn but I’m worried about finances.  That was something that woke me this morning.  I don’t know.  Maybe I’ll have some articles out in magazines and such and have that income?  If I expect that then I’d better get writing those articles!  Maybe that is something that I will do today.  I will sit down and try to put together some article ideas and get started sending out queries.  I have clips that are current to send out again.  I am very excited about that.  It is a good feeling to be able to do that.

That being said my two book reviews should be coming out soon.  I think the magazine comes out sometime in April.  But I’m not sure if it will be in SageWoman or one of their sister publications.  I had intended to get subscriptions to two of their publications but I can’t just yet.  I will add a picture when the magazine arrives.

I am dragging my feet.  I have some emails that I need to answer as well as somethings to research.  If I keep blathering on here then I can put it off.  But I don’t want to lose my readers so I’d better get going and get some stuff done.  Cheers!
