Pardon the Mess

I'm fiddling with my blog. I am one of those people who can never keep the same design or background for the entirety of my blog's life. That would just be boring. So I've switched up my template and am in the process of creating a new header.

I've been hit with another flare up of my RA, which doesn't surprise me as I've been going strong for the past month without any problems. But I was laid up all weekend. I pretty much slept and watched t.v. and read. My daughter and I even watched the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton movie, Cleopatra, a four-hour odyssey that my daughter actually wanted to watch. She, like me, is a sucker for a love story.

That means, however, that I didn't get any writing done on the POW book or the novel, and I am anxious to remedy that except that I'm still not feeling good, but am at work instead of at home (and I'm not sure this was the best idea...).

But you know what? That's life. Gotta roll with the punches. Mourning the loss of this weekend isn't going to get me any closer to achieving my goals, and neither is pushing myself to work when I know my body will only rebel and force me to take it easy. I'm learning to listen to my body because if I don't...oh boy. The consequences are quite ruthless.

That's the update from this end. Not much, I know.

Oh! And our temperatures are in the high 90s all week long. Those who have been reading this blog for awhile know well my hatred for heat - and the fact that it's officially fall according to the school calendar if not the regular calendar just makes it that much worse that I have to endure heat now when the blasted weather had all summer to get up to its scorching temps.

I digress.

At any rate, it's gonna be a hot one, which means I won't be doing anything that requires me to be outside. In short, I'm retreating into hibernate mode.

And I'm okay with that.


  1. I love the look of the blog!
    And it's good to hibernate every so often. :) Just enjoy it; the work will get done in good time!

    1. Thanks, Faith! Wish I could go into hibernate mode with lots of blankets and warm cups of cocoa, but it's too hot for that!

  2. Okay, now that I'm signed in under the right ID.... :-)

    I'm with you! I keep tweaking my blog, as well. Now I've got the urge to switch it to a different hosting service. Stop me before I crash the Internet!

    As for the weather, it's so hot and yucky here that I'm seriously considering having ice cream for dinner. I'm a grown up, so I can do that, right?

  3. Ilene, I give you permission to eat ice cream for supper! In fact, I might have a soda and popcorn for my supper. Ha!

  4. You really can't do any better than listen to your body. The words will still be there - and like a good wine they will be maturing while they wait to make it onto the page!

    1. I like how you think, Linda. :)


I love to hear from you!
