Ah, the snow. I don’t dislike it, to be honest. There is something so beautiful about it. How delicate it is as it floats in the air. How hundreds and hundreds of tiny snowflakes can stick together to coat the branches on the trees. The most lovely thing about the snow is how everything outside […]Read More The stillness of morning.
I haven’t written much for the past few weeks….or months. I guess I haven’t felt like it much. There’s so much going on; yet, there isn’t. I feel like I’m not the only one that is in somewhat of a limbo, for lack of a better term. However, I have chosen to take a different […]Read More It’s been a while.
A few months ago, I made the bold statement that I was going to begin writing a book. I, like many others, had started writing a book before, only to fizzle out on my effort a few weeks in. Because, LIFE. And, of course, the fear that no one would ever read it but my […]Read More Writing a book; taking a deeper look.
If only I had known. Back in February, I didn’t have time to get to the pool. I was trying to squeak out a workout or two each week, but it had been hard to do that when my calendar was so full already. Going into March, I didn’t even make it to the pool […]Read More Getting my sea legs back.
I have had a couple of people ask how the book is coming along. It had been developing well until 2 weeks ago. Then, with the kids home and having to stay home, it took some schedule adjustments to get started up again. Now, I have some time to write. Back in October, I decided […]Read More Time to write.
It’s dark and rainy this Saturday morning. Not a whole lot is going on in the house right now but a snoring dog. It’s been rainy and gloomy lately, and my mood has followed suit. A few weeks ago, I started having issues with my back. It was high time, if you ask me. I’ve […]Read More The Blahs.
It’s Christmas Eve morning. There is a thick blanket of fog outside – no beautiful, fluffy snow this year. Good thing Santa has Rudolph. No one is awake in the house yet, just me and the dog. I’m just sitting here drinking coffee before the chaos begins. Today, we start celebrating Christmas with family. Soon, […]Read More Fog and coffee.
When I first saw someone posting about FOMO on social media, I had no idea what they were talking about. I actually had to search for the definition because I was curious. Fear of missing out. It’s a real thing. Back in the day, before the internet and social media, no one had any idea […]Read More FOMO. It’s real.
It’s been a cold December already. We dipped into the single digits earlier this year than in the past. I’ll admit it, I really wasn’t ready. Thankfully, we didn’t stay there too long, so I can’t complain. We’re also getting closer to the holidays, so there’s no racing that’s pending right now. There’s no training […]Read More Having fun in the pain cave.
Makes you think of Dory, doesn’t it? Last year at about this time, I saw something interesting in my social media feed. Some of my friends/acquaintances had done a swim challenge. I had just done my first swim meet in a long time, and had been looking for more events to do in the pool. […]Read More Just keep swimming….
