I was on a conference call earlier today with a group of colleagues who have become friends, and we took a moment to go around and say what is going on with us.
I find that, for purposes of reporting in such a situation, nothing much is going on. However, in other ways much is going on.
In the As Reported column: I took a staycation in June, and will be traveling with my parents a bit in July: in 2 weeks we'll go to Houston for a week to meet Lucy, their great-granddaughter and my great-niece.
Here's Lucy, who in this photo had just eaten her first solid food: sweet potatoes. She liked them! Photo courtesy of her mama.
And the next week, we'll go to Florida, to The Beach: St. Teresa. THE Beach. There is no other.
Really looking forward to it. This is southeast of Tallahassee...we hope there will not be oil there, but if there is, so be it.
In the Other Things column:
I'm working along with the FlyLady again. I've been working with her, more and less, for years...mostly less, lately. And having a set of daily routines really, really helps me, As an Enneagram 9 I often look at the big picture and say, "What an order! I can't go through with it!" therefore opting to do nothing...at all. But the truth is, the better I do, the better I do. It spills over into other areas of my life.
I'm feeling a lot of feelings. This is somewhat bizarre and, while I know it's a GOOD thing, I'm not much used to it.
I'm trying to finish a knitting project...a small one...some puppy hand-puppets. I'm at the point (the mouth) where I need to pay attention to the pattern, but every time I go to knit, there's something else I need to be paying attention to. Recipe for disaster!
It's hot. And today, hot and wet. O, well. We have the AC.
I finally have my "window" for my windowless office, a print by Alice Dalton Brown. See it larger by clicking on her name...
Mine is actually quite large, 30" x 39". Thanks to Mom and Dad, Sarah, and Qualan, who contributed to this for my birthday! When I get it hung in my office (waiting for them to do it now) I'll post a pic of the real thing.
