Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Come on in. It’s windy and the temperature is dropping. Oh how I enjoyed those couple of 60 degree days. But oh well, winter is back again.
If we were having coffee. . .
I’d tell you the last few days have been interesting. Mostly depressing, but I tell you a bit about that later.
I’ve been participating in the Bout of Books 21 read-a-thon. I said I was going to read 3 books in a week. It may seem like a lot, but it really isn’t. It averaged about 100 pages per day for the 7 days of the read-a-thon. But because of the week I’ve had didn’t really get there.
I did finish one book and got halfway through another. I had planned to use this weekend to get caught up, but I chose to do other things (i.e. go shopping). So, now that I have shopping out of my system, I can get back to reading.
Now, back to the depressing part of week. My father and I were going to head to Ohio to see his sister who is terminally ill and then bad weather hit so he cancelled the trip. So, we’re just waiting for the weather to break before heading out. Hopefully that will happen soon.
That very same day, in the morning, my best male friend called me and here was seriously drunk. I knew he had been going to AA meetings and had gone to rehab and I know falling off the proverbial wagon happens, but I didn’t expect what I got. I won’t get into a lot of detail about his mental and emotional state, but I will say it was bad enough that I told him to go and voluntarily check himself into a hospital psychiatric ward. Needless to say he wouldn’t, so I spent the better part of the morning talking to him.
Switching gears, I had my first flute lesson last week, Sunday and my homework assignment was to practice the ‘B’ note; which I did with due diligence and I have to admit that I think I have successfully conquered that note
And because I’m a bit of an overachiever (actually I got bored), I decided to go on to the ‘D’. Before I left Colorado I needed to get the pad replaced for the ‘D’, which I did once I got back to Maryland and for some reason the ‘D’ doesn’t sound right to mine ears. But at least I got the B.
I’m still trying to figure how/if I’m going to revive my personal blog and my short story blog hasn’t been updated in a while. I’ve written a few things this year, but I’m not particularly satisfied with them to put out to the public.
I’ve also been trying to come up with a blogging schedule. Here is a tentative one.
I have a lot of things I’d like to incorporate, but we shall see.
I would greatly appreciate if you let me what types of posts you like or don’t like and what you would like to see more or less of from me on this blog.
