This morning when I was trying to get my morning pages done, I wondered if the weekends with Sweet Husband are so beautiful because we don’t get to see each other during the week….& if when we are back together full time, sleeping next to each other every night, the weekends won’t be so lovely. They continued to be good this summer but I have to wonder if that is because we were just reveling in so much time to be together. Or maybe it’s possible that our lives are just this good together.
Saturday was a beautiful day. SH was up much earlier than normal and we started our day by planning it. The. We were out the door for some outstanding lunch in Long Beach before SH took me around to three of the local Hudson’s – salvage stores. It’s been awhile since we’ve done that and while we didn’t buy much – a set of great plastic tiki lights for the front porch at one location and the best outfits for the dogs ever. So awesome that I’m still giggling about them. Best $7 we’ve ever spent. & we aren’t people who dress our animals).
After we did our shopping, I made my way out to Muddy Boots ranch in Pass Christian for a group photo shoot with members of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Photography Club. I enjoyed it. It was nice to meet people who are interested in the same things that I am, and it was nice to meet people who are at the same point of the journey that I am as well. The owners if the property were phenomenal, and the place was gorgeous. The horses were cooperative, and I took a bunch of pictures that I now need to edit. There are weekly shoots that I miss because I’m out of town so it was wonderful to be able to make this one.
Today hasn’t been so hot, and I kinda hate that. I don’t feel good. Over the last several days, I’ve noticed a ton of bug bites – many of them came Friday night when I was watering the porch plants. I had SH look at one particularly bothersome one last night and he didn’t think it was actually a bite. Probably more like an ingrown hair. This morning when I woke up, that spot, which happens to be on my hip, was killing me – swollen and hard. When I say killing me, I mean killing me. It hurts to walk. So SH looked at it again and said that it looked like a spider bite in the light of morning. Two small puncture wounds.
I don’t know if it is what is making me feel like hell but I feel like hell.
SH and I completed the ALS Ice Bucket challenge this afternoon. Our videos are on Facebook. I’ll try to get them uploaded after SH finishes his fantasy draft.
I also forgot my work laptop charger so all the work that I needed to do this weekend hasn’t gotten done. Whatever. I’ll get it taken care of tomorrow. Easy peasy.
As it is Sunday, it’s time to set intentions for the week. Tomorrow is the new moon so there is quite a lot for me to think about tomorrow. I always make new moon wishes – putting the energy out there into the Universe, hoping that it eventually comes back to me. Between now and then I need to read a bit more, think a bit more and come to decisions. Beyond that though, the following are my intentions for the week:
- complete week two of Couch-2-5k.
- eat healthfully during the week
- exercise (either walk or swim) on the days I’m not running
- write every day
- do my school work at school
- send a few letters
- take photos
Tell me about your weekend. Was it wonderful? And what do you have going on for the coming week?
