|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!
Hee -- I wish. My travel this summer is limited to a jaunt to the Plains to see my father; December will be London. However, I might have enough points on my credit card for a free flight in October...
[slaps self for improvidence]
[sends good thoughts to you and yours]
Well, with London in the future, won't pity you too much for missing SF. But in the Plains, you're half-way there....if Southwest flies anywhere near you, it's very, very cheap!
But hugs and wishes for a great week, wherever!
