Creepy Skies

We woke up to everything cast in an eerie yellow light. It gave everything a rather sickly glow that made you think something bad was about to go down. Right now it’s not as yellow but the grey skies still have a slight tinge to them. It’s like everything is starting to go bad visually.

I shed a few tears yesterday. I found out that one of my favorite people, Leslie Jordan, passed away. He was one of those people that just lit up a room. He could always make you smile no matter how bad your day was. He was always fun to watch (so much energy in that tiny package!). I sent one of his dvds to Dad to help him through some of his PTSD. I never got to meet Leslie but he has helped me and mine through a lot of things.

So today I am trying to put on a sort of happy face and move forward. Mom still hasn’t gone in for her phone repairs so I had better call her today. Dad and I also need to talk. I have a meeting at 6;30pm so I’m not sure how to fit all this in. Do you ever make plans in the future and get all excited about them but the closer it comes to doing them suddenly you don’t want to do it? That is how I am about this week. I have so much going on… Fun stuff to be sure but I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed.

I did get some significant work on my novel done yesterday. I plan to keep shipping away at it. I have also found a fellow traveler on the writing path that has decided to put together a small group to help each other over some of the writing hurdles we encounter. I need to make sure that I put forth the effort to keep in touch on there. I am very bad at that. It sounds great to get together and have fellow writers to talk to but then I let myself drift off and lose touch. I can think of several times that I have done this.

Since I got up late I suppose I need to get myself motivated. I am contemplating taking Stella to the park. Yesterday was raining so we stayed home. Today is overcast but no rain yet. Ok, I can do this. I hope you have an amazing day! Thanks for reading and stay safe!

  1. I stopped “stacking” some years back. In the past I did plenty of it. I stuffed so much things that I “should get done” in my week that I felt totally overwhelmed on tuesday and when I failed to follow my own list I felt even worse. Nowadays I take life as it comes. I don’t plan anymore (at least most things) and do things on day by day basis.
    You have a pawtastic day and stay safe. =)

    1. I try to do that but this week everything seems to happening. The events I said yes to are with friends I haven’t seen in several months and I won’t really be any worse for going out. But my brain keeps putting out the bad “what ifs” and so it goes. I keep trying though!
      Miss Stella and I send hugs and belly rubs!


      1. Oh those nasty “what if’s” I know them so well. Have you tried to tell them to bugger off and fill their space with something better? Like a what if creeps up behind you and you quickly think of something that makes you happy. Takes a bit of practice but if works really well. Kinda puts you in control and not the what if’s. =) Hugs and belly rubs back from Ami and I ❤
