Mumbles … Conspicuous

Happy Flag Day in the USA!

June 14, 2021

There has been a conspicuous absence of posts on my blog recently.  I am back to being more than a week behind and I am trying to find a little time to write.  My usual writing time is the quiet of the night after everyone has gone to sleep.  However, life has kind of altered that as I have not been getting the sleep I need so therefor, I fall asleep many nights before I can write anything.

There has been a conspicuous void of words flowing during the day as there is usually too much going on and my boyfriend has the TV turned up so loud, I can’t think.  So, by the time it has quieted down I am usually too tired to write.  BUT a new week is here, and I have a plan or two for some me time.  I know I focus on many other things but if I can just narrow it down to some thoughts that come only one at a time, maybe I can get caught up this week.

So, keep your eyes posted for incoming words… I am going to try again to catch up.  Have a great week!  (((HUGS)))

I WON… ok, not really.

I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I (unfortunately) did not win the lottery either, but I have fallen behind.  A little lack of momentum, too many things happening at once and just not enough hours in the day.  But I am doing all I can to slowly catch up.  I will state here my goal is to be on track by the start of June.  I hope I am not reaching too far with that goal… I have a full two weeks yet. 

But speaking of the lottery, what are three things you would do if you won a big jackpot?  I would hire a construction crew to redo my house… it is 100 years old and needs a lot of TLC.  I would give my daughter a share for their house and a new car.  And the first thing I would do… hire a lawyer and financial advisor.  You have to make sure the money doesn’t destroy you, as I have heard of other winners doing.  What about you? Come on, dream a little!

Mumbles …. Assume

Everyone knows it.  It popped into my head the first time I saw the prompt.  To assume makes this (ass) out of this (u) and this (me).  I feel like I have made an ass of myself the last week or so.  I have not had many creative juices flowing and have fallen behind again on my daily reading and prompts.  But if all goes as planned I will only be one day behind by the end of tonight.  And I am hoping I can catch that up before Friday.

So don’t go assuming I have vanished from Word Press it just isn’t true.  I am plugging away as best as I can.  Be prepared for a little more activity until I get squared away with the days.  In the meantime I need to go write some more.  I hope everyone has a great week!

Now enjoy this song with assume in it that I think is pretty relevant about now…

Happy and Grateful – Day 107

We have reached the month of April and I am still on course to post daily with my happiness and gratitude I have found.  Please join in if you feel like doing this too by sharing in the comments or on your own blog.  There is so much to be happy and grateful for.

I have spent the day playing catch up.  The most strenuous thing I have done is two loads of laundry, otherwise I have been on my computer reading emails and posts from WordPress.  I also had a sunburn from yesterday “catching up” with the heat and itching on my face and arms.

It was good to not have a long list of things to do today.  I  think I regained some of the energy I lost over the last couple of days and I am grateful for that.  I am also happy I was able to just kind of take it easy today.  Holidays are nice but they can be a lot of work sometimes.
