What a fun night, dancing and playing dress up! I guess some parts of childhood never grow old. As always, there were a lot of cute costumes at the bar where I dance, though the crowd was light since a lot of people were either at the Zac Brown concert or at parties of their own. It did leave us more room to dance which I will never complain about, and I did get some two-steppin’ and couples dancing in, enough to make me come home with sore feet, but what a way to go!
I did have a rather odd experience upon arriving home. Not long after I walked through the door, I became very sick to my stomach. Although it passed, I’m still feeling slightly queasy. I could attribute it to something I ate, but the last thing was several hours ago. It wasn’t the pit in the stomach, something’s not right kind of nauseaus, but rather, the “don’t get between me and the bathroom because I’m going to hurl!” kind of nauseous. Thankfully, it passed before the hurling part got a chance to materialize!
What a busy weekend! I went shopping with Heather today and quickly found a dress for my reunion. In fact, though I had to buy a larger size, it wasn’t as large as I expected, and the process was actually relatively painless. Since we got done so quickly, we went to a place I’d never been for lunch called “The Yard House”. They had absolutely yummy ahi steak sandwiches which we both thoroughly enjoyed!
Then it was back home to do a couple of chores before getting ready to go dancing. Tomorrow brings the usual grocery shopping and errands, but we also get to go to a birthday party, complete with a live band and more dancing! Woo hoo!!! And it’s one of my favorite bands, which is even better! Of course, this means I have to add a couple of stops to my list of errands tomorrow, and I really want to get in a workout at the gym, so I must increase efficiency!
I did get about an hour’s worth of writing in today that was not blogging! I’m trying really hard to start getting into the habit of writing something which could, eventually, turn into a book each and every day. Let’s call it, setting a new habit (despite the fact that my gym habit is in the process of being re-established since I fell off the wagon, so to speak) and this one brings me great joy, even as I sit in front of my computer, struggling to pull words out of my head!
I’m getting a lot of email now from publishers offering self-publishing packages, writing groups offering seminars and workshops and all manner of related organizations. It will simply be a matter of weeding through them and determining which, if any, will be beneficial to me in the next few months. No decisions need to be made at this particular moment, so I’ll continue to do my research and filter out those which are less likely to bring any value to what I’m doing.
So the journey continues, though the path has taken a new direction, it’s all for the good.
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for the good times with my family and friends.
2. I am grateful for inspiration which had me dressing up for Halloween after all.
3. I am grateful for being able to come home after a long, eventful, tiring day and just snuggle with my kitties whose only real demands involve “skritch me over here…a little to the left, please. Ahhh, just right!”
4. I am grateful for hot showers after working my muscles over much.
5. I am grateful for all of the people who inspire and encourage me to live my passion.
Love and light.
