|01:26 pm - One Foot In Front of the Other|
Am anxious today, but to go forward... one foot in front of the other, yes?
*I ran a mile today, after the Dog of the House and I finished our walk. One foot down, then the other; New Balance shoes, hard on the pavement, kind of hard on my knees.
*Am working on reclaiming things from my closet, reworking, refreshing; the local alterations-person is getting rather a lot of business from me. (Side-note: "I do alterations" would be a perfect start for a fantasy -- or SF, if I did SF, which I do not -- story.)
*The Dog of the House has just returned from the groomer's, where she was de-furminated. That, too, seems like a perfect start for an urban fantasy/paranormal romance involving werewolves or similar. ;-)
*I need to go to San Francisco. (Research for the project after the Texas-project.) Of course, when I say need, I mean... not really. However, I also just bought a bottle of Benziger Sauvignon Blanc,** which is biodynamically farmed (and as seen on Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure, which is nice too). Research close to home! Yes!
**Cool video on the Benziger website, btw.
*Am struggling and anxious, but we persevere, we go on.
May your day be full of forward motion!

Good on you, She Who Walks And Runs!
So, you are spring-cleaning, and the Dog of the House has been spring-cleaned as well. "De-furminated" does sound rather fantastical.
Hugs and cheers to you.
I will struggle to accept graciously your kind words re my walking and running, for o, I am terrible at running! ;-) But thank you. [hugs]
Good Monday thoughts to you and yours, and may many usefuls be slain today!

You get full points for running at all. Me, I walk when I can, carefully watching the ground in front of me, and that's as good as it gets.

I'm a fully paid-up member of the Klutz Klub, too, as the mystery bruise on my forearm and the big bruises on my thigh (from running into a corner) will attest. ;-)
