Thank-you for stopping by. This is a week when I have welcomed interactions with people, including a lovely 90-minute phone call with my sister in New England. I put aside my plans for the week, pretty much, and a solid week of impromptu activities. And not using the alarm clock and napping often.
The weather was fairly dry, but for a few showers in the night. Promises of more rain for Sunday and Monday. I enjoyed Liz Danforth’s Social gathering (via Zoom) on Saturday afternoon. Relaxed and relaxing, a smaller group with easy conversation and good feelings. In the morning (Sunday) I’ve meeting for worship to look forward to with a social time afterwards.
I spent the rest of the afternoon and part of Saturday evening taking care of the laundry. Clean bedding for people and dogs. I trust that later on Sunday, I can take care of what’s in the laundry hamper. I understand that lots of trips up and down the stairs is good exercise. Speaking of which, I did get the gazebo cleaned up, the rest of the foam blocks out of the open rafters, and using the stationary bike after dusting and straightening the accumulation of items that were put there for winter storage.
I hope to maintain a relatively spontaneous group of activities during the coming week. I bought a recent Elementals novel by Mercedes Lackey, whose writing I have enjoyed since decades past and another Valdemar anthology for which she was editor. I preordered another of hers, months ago. I also preordered Laura Anne Gilman’s latest book.
I did catch up on the Ronovan Writes Monday Haiku and Wednesday Sijo poetry challenges, the last on Saturday morning. Sometimes, poems are not ready to be written. I go with the flow;
Hugs & best wishes,
