Where have I been???? Up to my eyeballs in revisions, putting in several 10 to 12 hour days AND loving every minute of it!
Recently, I’ve realized there are some things I haven’t mentioned lately. For example: my passion for rocks and crystals. YES. I still love them, still use them. I find certain favorites, like moss agate, Labradorite and fluorite, as calming as ever. The Course in Miracles: still a believer, still love that book. The Daily Audio Bible: I’m in my 4th year and listen intemittently, since I still suffer from a spiritual allergy to certain parts of the Old Testament. I find Brian Hardin’s amazing commentaries and prayers as inspiring as ever. Artist Trading Cards: still make them, but I’ve been too busy lately, and I have some catching up to do with my swaps. Pyramids: I’ve gotten away from that, but my pyramid is right here in the office and I definitely plan to start using it again.
Weight Watchers is going well. Still in there plugging, and getting a real boost from podcasts like “Half Size Me”.
My daffodils are just beginning to bloom, and the tulips are up, so I’m sure they’re not far away. It seems that the older I get, the more I LOVE flowers. I just placed an order for bulbs, mostly dinnerplate dahlias, and I’m eager to get them into the ground, now that it’s thawed out a little. I own two of those Aerogarden things, the indoor seed-starters with grow lights, and I have baby tomato plants (yum, tomatoes! my mouth is already watering) in one and various herbs in the other.
All’s well here on the Triple L, and I sincerely hope it’s the same in your neck of the woods.
