|05:15 pm - Today's Numbers|
Saturday, as the sun sets:
Number of works-in-progress, seemingly broken: 1 short-story draft, 1 novel (which, however, has at least passed 60,000 words)
Number of candles lit for those I know who require light and/or comfort: 4 (some of which are doing double- or triple-duty)
Number of camellia picked from my back garden and now floating in my kitchen: 1, deep pink shading to light pink at its heart
Number of miles walked today: 3. I took a different path, winding my way through unfamiliar streets: dogs, green, first spring perennials, sun through branches. Also, 1 bandanna-and-leather motorcycle guy who passed me, slowed, circled back, and then said, "Oh, sorry, I thought you were someone else from your back view." I did not inquire further.
Number of times the Dog of the House has been outside to root around for lizards, bugs, or similar: 5
Number of times the Dog of the House came in upon command from these thrilling adventures: 1. Because she is v.v. well-trained, what?
Number of Songs I Love Even Though The Lyrics Appall Me played this morning: 1. ("La Grange," if you must know)
Number of Good Thoughts Sent Out to You All: Lots. Lots and lots.
May the rest of your weekend be full of good numbers!

It's Sunday where you are, so... happy Sunday! :-)
Yay for passing 60,000 words!
But it's broken! [sniffs] Still, we persevere...
[sends gratitude and hugs back]
Yay for many words, songs you like even when you shouldn't, and the Dog of the House!
Off-topic: I love that Mike Nesmith icon. :-)
On-topic: thank you thank you, and the Dog of the House thanks you too! [hugs]
I do like Mike! (My other Nesmith icon isn't fitting for the subject, but see?)
Oh, that's a great icon. :-))

Good thoughts back to you!
Happy Sunday, A! [sends treats]
Take today off, Rainkatt, rest, recover. [hugs]
bandanna guy! Crack me up. I love these snippets. (At least he didn't yell, "Hey, cutie!" and then make it clear he was talking to The Dog of the House.)
Luckily, the Dog of the House was not along for this walk. ;-) But YES, that would be worse!
[waves; sends good Sunday thoughts]
a beautifully comforting list.
me? i'm deep in denial -- the coming week is coming! luckily, i go to the dentist first thing in the morning; rather puts the rest of the day in perspective, what?
Alas for the week and the dentist! [sends camellias and support]
You know, it never occurred to me that 'La Grange' had lyrics- that there were words with meaning being sung. I'm guessing I shouldn't go look them up?
(That's the only ZZ Top song I have on my tiny green Ipod)
Well, "La Grange" refers to the famous bordello the Chicken Ranch, so... it's your call. :-))
But isn't it an awesome song?
Hugs right back, and good middle-of-the-week thoughts!
As of late, my weekends have bee very compressed, since my husband is only home on the weekends. I tend to miss everything else that goes on. However, you are lovely, as always. And I'm sure your back view is awesome ; ). ((hugs))
Cheers for your weekends with your husband, hugs for the days inbetween, and cheers and hugs for you indiscriminately! :-)
