It seems I've been all about the heavy-hitting and thought-provoking posts of late, so I thought I'd change it up a bit today. And once again, I'm filching (and twisting) an idea from Barbara. Shh... don't.tell.anyone.
The ABCs of ME! (My only hope is that this entertains someone other than me...)
A - Anxious for time Alone
B - Brainstorming Blurbs for the little Book I'm making the hubs for Valentine's Day
C - Can't get Cold toes warmed up
D - Disappointed in the book I started reading this morning
E - Excited about my WIP!
F - Fulfilling the demands of a sweet (and busy!) three-year-old
G - Glad it's Friday
H - Hoping my oldest makes it through the full school day (she's been sick all week) and can enjoy her Valentine's party this afternoon
I - Ignoring the pile of laundry... for now
J - Juggling lots of tasks
K - Kicking myself for bad habits I've fallen into
L - Looking out my window, over the falling snow
M - Massaging my head to keep its ache at bay
N - Not hungry, which is unusual
O - (trying to) Overlook frustrations, so I don't get bogged down by them
P - Plots and premises are on my mind, thanks to Donald Maass's Writing the Breakout Novel
Q - Quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson: You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
R - Relishing the warmth and light two new lamps throw from my bedroom
S - Sipping on a (homemade!) iced mocha... *sluuuurp* Oh no! It's all gone!
T - Thinking of renting Fireproof for the weekend
U - Urging thoughts to travel to my fingertips and onto my WIP's document
V - Valentine's Day wishes fill my mind...
W - Waiting for the roast and peppers to heat up and fill the house with thick aroma
X - X-rays showed a need to return to the dentist
Y - YouTube's playin' a beat, got me dancin' in my seat
Z - Zippin' around to music - that's how I best accomplish housework
What are your ABCs?
Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it's filled with blessings and love.
