Bric a Brac
Yesterday was busy with a Capital “B” at work, so my brain cells are a bit depleted.
Hence, this post of odds and ends.
Regular programming will resume tomorrow or later today if that J-O-B will leave me alone long enough to blog properly.
This is what’s been happening in my little arena called life:
1- I got news that my brother’s unit in Afghanistan is under heavy attack. I worry beyond belief. War is ugly.
2- I made it through the first year of my Mom’s death and think I will be okay without her.
No more grieving, only remembrance.
3- Have kept to my workout routine @ 530 (am people, as in o’dark thirty) and will sport a bathing suit this summer and not board shorts as in years gone past.
4-Received an invitation to be the Guest Artist at a Literary festival in my beloved Outer Banks, North Carolina this August. Me an artist, that’s debatable. I’m just a word-slinger.
5- Made the decision to start dating (that will be a longggg blog post I’m sure) after 4 years of single-dom.(Before I get a correction in my email, seeing someone a few times a year is not dating, it’s well, seeing someone a few times a year)
6- Starting to get my thoughts and meals in order for my upcoming challenge, “Live below the line”.
7- Wrote 2 poems and a prose piece while I was on a getaway this past weekend. I really like the direction they took.
8- I am reading one of the best books I think to ever grace my eyes,
“A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius”.
9- I have decided to look for my brother. 26 years is too long. I miss him.
10- The Coup de Grace for the week is, (insert brief drumroll) Ashton Kutcher & Anderson Cooper replied to my tweets.
Pretty damn snazzy if I must say so myself.
Ok, that’s it.. If you expected juicy, earth-shattering news, well I apologize in advance. I save those for single posts!!
Here’s a picture I took. I like this horse. I want to ride a horse, like him.
