Slow is Good

Has anyone else’s Facebook page changed just lately? Things on the left hand side are different. I don’t know whether I hit something inadvertently, or the FB people changed it up, but I miss being able to call up family posts, the whole bunch, not individually. Rats. Again.

I got to shovel snow, a whole bunch of it. That does it for this year. I’m ready for spring. I got out the catalog and ordered asparagus roots, an apple tree, a blueberry bush, and carrot seeds. I am making plans for what to plant in several locations, and how to build the kind of bench I want. I suppose I’m going to have to be a tiny bit patient, aren’t I? “Give me patience – and I want it right NOW!”

I do love visiting friends and seeing their lovely holiday decorations, and eating goodies of course.

I spent some time recently with a writing mentor and in half an hour, I was all un-stuck and fired up to write again. A new challenge, a new perspective, knowing eyes looking at my work, put it all together and I am ready to go at it again. It hasn’t been flowing lately and I couldn’t figure out why.

Winter driving is not my favorite and I am slated to do a lot of it this winter. Why? Good question. One I should have asked earlier, but who knew this arctic blast was coming so soon on the heels of record warmth. I haven’t had many opportunities this year to listen to holiday music, but I am getting it in the car now.

Brrrrr. You know, it looks pretty out there, but it’s downright cold. Be careful. There have been too many accidents and pile-ups already. This is one of those cases where slow is good.
