Good Monday morning.
Okay this is going to be hard. I had written an entire blog. I was really pleased with it. I was so pleased with it - I forgot to save it. And guess what? Yep - it got deleted. I hit a button and it was gone. What's so sad about it - it was all about my cranky mood this past weekend. All about how I got through it. All about my cheerful wisdom. And now...poof!
Yes! Cranky mood! Returned in a second!
What can I do?
Start again. Write again.
I'm actually not sure what I want to write now. I feel so irritated and angry, but at the same time, I'm just going to write until something else stirs within me - so I can make this rewrite - this blog - even better than the last one.
But it was so good! I was funny! I was delightful! I was on such a roll! Let it go Rebecca. Take a sip of coffee and move on because that train has left the station.
I really want to curse like a sailor right now. Deep breath.
Well...see now I can't seem to just go back to that mood I had. I can't even remember how I even started the blog. I know I talked about my weekend a little bit. I was silly. I wrote something about OH!...the bougainvillea bush. Yeah - there is a really pretty - actually 3 of them - bushes on my walk. They were stunning this morning. And I decided to take a quick picture with the bush.
I'm trying to pull the excitement back and write about it. I had so many thoughts that I included. They really are beautiful bushes. But I just can't pull the vibe back, that really cool writing vibe that just flows out naturally, you know? Well - there's me in the picture. I was smiling - then.
Moods change. Moods come and go. I'm sure this one will pass soon and another one will show up. It's life right?
I did manage to do a podcast this morning. Forgive the rough sound of it. There were a lot of people out there and I was having a tough time staying on topic. So I rambled.
I am proud of myself that right before I attached today's podcast, I just saved my work. No sense in repeating the same mistake, right?
All right - so I've also been doing some silly videos and posting on Instagram. Here ya go:
I have been reading more lately. I would like to blog about these books. I guess no time like the present. I began reading the series by Douglas Adams called The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It really is good. I just finished the second book and I think it was better than the first book. I'm going to take a break and read another book first before I go back to the series. It's getting fun. If you like whimsical but thought provoking - these are fun books.
I finished a great book by Jennifer McCartney called The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place. It is hysterical. It's a great ride. If you, like me, are tired of everyone bragging about how they got rid of all their things and all they have now is the shirt on their back blah, blah, blah, but you (and me) just want to live in peace with your stuff and your way of life - this book is for you! It's great. I wanted to write this book.
I remember when it became this "fad" to minimize, downsize and get rid of clutter. I'm not saying I didn't think it was good idea to get rid of moldy, slimy crap stinking up your home. I'm not saying letting things go to people who can use them - if you aren't isn't a good idea. I'm not saying you have to keep everything. But come on! What's with the looks? Ugh....you're a clutter bug. Come on people! Let people live the way they want to live.
Deep breath. Got a little carried away there.
I'm still working on my drawing project. I'm sure I'll do the next exercise this week.
I've started on Jack Kerouac's book On The Road. I'm entertained. I'm not sure why this book passed me by in my younger days. But at the same time, I feel I'm in a different mindset now and I'm really enjoying it. It's not what I thought it was going to be. Kerouac isn't who I thought he was. I hear he was super conservative. I also took some time to watch a couple interviews. Talk about cranky. But all in all, I'm entertained. My brain is stimulated. That's the best part about reading. If you allow it - your mind goes on an adventure, you learn stuff, and your spirit soars.
Okay - so onward with Monday!
Thanks for being here.
Thanks for your support.
I'm glad you are here.
