The current temperature in the ATL is 38 degrees.
I am SO looking forward to this weekend. Just for a breather. And I hope to make the most of it.
The holidays are finally over. Like I said, it didn't really mean as much as it should have to me because I didn't take off (uh... I'm not working straight through next time. That was stupid. I'm STILL behind on my paperwork. Sigh).
I'm more focused on my February. In one month, on the 7th, I will be
41 years old. That seems so surreal to me. 41. I still think of myself as 21, lol.
I have a big cruise coming up. 8 long days. And I'm in a balcony room now, so I have this vision of myself sitting on that balcony with my laptop writing...
And writing more.
I would love to get 100 hours of writing done. That is lofty, I know. But I would absolutely LOVE that. WOW.
I also have a trip planned to New Orleans. My birthday falls on superbowl weekend, so I have tentative plans to run down there and hang out with my girl Gigi. That's one of the people who takes care of LadyLee's heart, so I am looking forward to seeing her. So hopefully I can make the pilgrimadege dwon to N'awlins!
I wanna throw another trip in there somewhere. It all depends on if I can get the month of February off from work. We will see.
As you can see, this is where my mind is right now. And I am a tad bit excited. Just a tad!
This week was the first week of the church fast, which is always interesting. I'm doing whatever I do. Of course fruits and veggies and water don't bother me one bit. On a personal note, I've decreased my television time by some 90%, and I spend more time doing some reading and writing. My mind is a lot clearer. Funny how the mind gets clearer when all the static is cleared out. It's good thing to not allow so much trash in. I know it affects my heart in some way.
Quotes: I have more fascinating quotes from the brother Consciuosskillz on Twitter:
Measuring your growth by someone else's success is a recipe for failure.
The chance to do better is contained within every new moment given
Gravitating to people who always tell you what you want to hear will not allow you to hear the things that you may need. The more I stayed with those who told me what I wanted to hear, the further it pushed me from what I truly need to know.
Wise is the one who doesn't always look for truth to fit their emotional composition. Wise is the one who listens, then implements what is beneficial for them despite how uncomfortable it may be. Wise is the one who in silence has learn to let their actions speak volumes. Wise is the one who seeks to understand more than being understood.
Uh, yeah. that's good food for thought... nutrient dense and nutrient packed!
That should get you through the WHOLE weekend! The WHOLE weekend!
Song of the Week. I don't know 'bout you, but I feel like hearing some Lady T. This is one of my favorites: "If I were a Bell"
Rest in peace, Teena Marie.
My weekend. I have a Writing Workshop tonight. I have a Triple F Possee finance meeting on Saturday morning. Then after that, LOTS of FOOTBALL!!! I am happy about that! I plan to find somewhere to watch the games and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
I have a bit of baking to do also. Cookies still going out. Oh joy!
With that said... You all have a great weekent... on purpose.
