Good Afternoon and have a seat! A cup of coffee sounds perfect today…while it is blowing and snowing outside. Yes, yes, I agree…we are quite sick of the cold and oh, we all worry over the tender spring blooms. But here we are, let’s dry out and warm up a bit.
I want to tell you that I am quite proud of myself. I do not wish to brag, but heck! I am writing again, yes! I also have been working on that first draft, you know…the one I told you about. I would tell you I have been a bit crazed over the nonsense and wandering that sometimes focusing on a word count/time/deadline creates on the page. But somehow, I am still okay with it, willing to flog through it~which as you might know, is often not the case…a small, significant victory.
I want to tell you that you are looking mighty spiffy today, all cute in your outfit, face flushed from your run. The Clean Eating is showing on you! (You must loan me your recipes and that book)… I am getting in those workouts~even this morning (when you know I wanted to stay inside on my comfy couch~snuggled in and writing).
I want to tell you that I still miss the ocean. The sea and sand…and pelicans. It has only been four months since we visited our son out on the Florida coast, but I yearn daily for a return. I am ready to tell you that we plan to move! Yes, it is still a bit off, so no worries, and I shall stay in touch often~ but we have put in our time here in the mountains, and after 18 years the desire has not lessened…we want to live now where we choose~ where we are happiest, and feel inspired. Thinking mid-October sounds about right…to head east. Oh yes, plans to make and I shall share them often with you…promise!
Oh, let’s eat, shall we? …oh, and another french roast, please!
