Scattered Kind of Day

Heh, man do I have stuff on my agenda. I’ve spent the day working a half hour on this and a half hour on that. The result is that I haven’t made a lot of progress in any one area, but I have managed to touch just about everything on my weekly and monthly plan. In fact, once I create a file for my “hands” pictures and knit a little bit, I will have accomplished what I set out to do today, except for the pleasure reading I am promising myself later on tonight. Every day ought to have a little reward built in, don’t you think? And reading books I already own is certainly cheaper than sending flowers with ProFlowers, even to myself. I do intend to buy myself some flowers this year, don’t get me wrong. But it’s not going to be today, nor is it scheduled for this month.

But let me tell you about what I am reading! First, I am continuing The Artist’s Way with a short segment each morning, and I am also following a yearly Bible reading plan, which I begin every January and sometimes finish and mostly do not. I’m human, yk? But I am also reading Writiing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg. When I first found this in my house, and no, I do not remember buying it, I have no idea where it came from, so I am accounting it as a gift from the muse since I found it in the middle of November and the NaNo, I thought it was a manual of style. Umm, no. No, it’s not. It is a book of small snippets (2-3 pages) of encouragement for the writer. Try this, sample that, yes you can, etc. All good stuff, so far. I’m nibbling this one slowly, so as to gain as much as possible from it.

I’m also reading The Fiery Cross, which is the 5th book of the Outlander series, and the first one that I have not previously read. I’m looking forward to finding out what has happened to my friends since I last visited with them, LOL.

Okay, time to stop for now. I have a file to create and some knitting to do. And laundry to fold. And supper to cook. By the time lights out comes tonight, I really think I’ll be more than ready for it!
