Morning pages, tulips for color, and greenery for life. (with a kitty cat cameo from Friday)
My DSLR has ceased to be and I need a new camera.
Happy Wednesday, ya’ll! I’m in a morning after, post-concert daze, but the show Rage + Rapture tour was spectacular. Garbage was a formative part of my rock girl feminist education, and more than lived up to my expectations. Blondie is just classic, and was more than I imagined in a live performance. Even the opening act, Deap Valley, was amazing. One of the best shows I’ve seen in a while.
It’s been a busy, festive, relaxing, productive week with lots of time for family, writing, and wellness. Here’s my week in review… with pictures!
Winter lights festival after Christmas day…
New chakra dream catcher for my meditation space (ie. my bedroom)
Some mystery for the New Year…
A little kitty play time
Lovely lattes and empanadas with the family
The view from my desk — desert rose selenite for mental clarity and Eve for inspiration (and judgement)
New mug (because I have a problem)
New Year’s brunch and new-old traditions after 9 years.
And saying good bye to 2016 by framing my favorite calendar print.
As per usual, I have made the mistake of having too little food and too much caffeine. My head is reeling. It’s not even about the caffeine, I just really enjoy the taste of coffee and coffee drinks. I have a weakness (re: problem).
I’m still driving around in my mom’s car, so I’ve been trying not to go out much. I’m not scared of driving (I know that happens sometimes after car accidents), it’s just that I don’t want to deal with much at the moment. I’ve been reading, and reading, and reading all day (as you’ll see in Friday’s video, which will feature all the things I’ve read while keeping my mind off the mess). One thing I did do was pick up my new (old) glasses. I wore these for a year before getting a new vision plan, but I always wanted to give them another try.
Happy Sunday! ttfn.
Better late than never, right?
Spent the weekend working on the first round of changes to the draft (based on my own review and beta feedback). This method is working really well given the current state of it, and it keeps me from getting stuck on the details rather than the story. Basically, I’m jumping from beginning to end and back again, before I turn to the messy middle. So far, so good, and it’s helping me get a better grasp on character motivation and development, but I’ll share details later.
Truthwitch was just pure fun and adventure, but now I have to wait for the sequel. boo.
Meanwhile, after years (YEARS) of having it on my wishlist, I finally picked up the Magician books by PC Wrede. Love her. Love the book so far. ’nuff said.
Then the boy showed up, and everything went off the rails. TTFN.
I have been terribly dizzy for the last two days. I have a strange pain in my side, and I keep getting chills. I tried to put it off, but I’m going in to the ER tonight. I didn’t want to spend my birthday in the hospital, but it looks like there is no other choice, unless I want the mystery pain to get worse.
