Fly-By: Busy, Distracted and Distressed

As you might have no doubt guessed, I’m a bit distressed by the multiple punches of recent news both national and international. I’m busy writing a new insert chapter for Theadia. I’m also a bit distracted as I have a new part-time Day Job lined up and I’m having one of those waves of overthinking worry because they haven’t yet given me a solid start date and schedule and my brain is telling me they did and I just misunderstood or I never received it. So yeah, I don’t have anything planned here today.

On a lighter note, here’s a picture of some recent daffodils we picked up at the grocery store. The light is natural (kitchen window yesterday afternoon) and I’m using a fun and super cheap macro lens that I can clip onto my phone. [You can find it on Amazon here. Thanks to BBC’s Winterwatch for bringing it to my attention!]

Here’s to hoping my brain is on a bit tighter next week.

Fly-By: Christmas Prep and Booster Shots

Doing a fly-by today and tomorrow, as I am getting my COVID booster shot today and will most likely be out of commission tomorrow from the effects. I also need to head to the post office to drop off a few Christmas packages. Oh, and I also need to put up our tree today, which I didn’t get around to doing yesterday because I’d spent most of the afternoon watching Episode 3 of The Beatles: Get Back.

See you on Friday!

Fly-By: Keeping Healthy

Not much to report writingwise today, just that I’ve been super busy with the three main novel projects as well as juggling some other more immediate errands, micro-projects and otherwise keeping healthy. We may not have been walking the neighborhood nearly as much as we have in the recent past, but I’ve otherwise been trying to keep up with the twice-daily stretches, proper sitting positions, and whatnot. And I’m also happy to say that my blood pressure is finally down to normal levels after who knows how long. (It’s always been slightly high, partly due to it being hereditary and also to my copious amounts of caffeine and sugar over the years. I’m trying to do better in that respect too.)

Anyway! Keeping busy, starting in on a few long-delayed long-game plans and Doing All The Things. Exactly where I want and need to be right now!
