So we got more snow yesterday. Not just a dusting. No. We got several inches. As I sit here staring out the window at our yard, it looks more like mid-February than late April. I pray. I pray this is the last of it for this season. I want my Spring and I want it NOW! I was nervous as Jess – my husband was driving home from work last night. Visibility was wretched. It normally takes him about 10 minutes or less to get home. Last night it was closer to 40 minutes. Ugh. We had thunder snow last night with lightening. Such odd weather for this time of year. Makes me wonder what the summer will be like. I have a feeling we’ll go straight from this wintery weather to summer. Not sure that is a good thing. I am praying for a cool summer – highs in the 60’s to low 70’s and no humidity. That would be heavenly. My favorite temperature range is high 50’s to mid-60’s. I like it on the cool side.
Okay. I vented. Much better.
On a happier note, my new kettlbells arrived yesterday! Both of them – my brand new Dragon Door 12kg (26lb) kettlelbells arrived just THREE days after ordering them. I was quite surprised. Pleasantly so. I was able to use one of them for Day 2 of the 21 Day Kettlebell Challenge which, by the way, is going very well. Today is Day 3 and I shall do it later today. I love the concentration on swings because I feel like it is firming up my form and forcing me to focus on form more than anything – which is extremely important. Never underestimate the power of the swing!
Writing is going fairly well. I am going to reinstate my word count goals. I am going to write 500 words a day – which is basically what I am doing right now with my novel. It’s coming. I am referring to myself as a snowplow as I write. I am plowing a path – setting down the story and then I shall go back and add/delete/finesse once I get the actual story down. So far, it is working well this way so we shall see. It’s been hard turning off the internal editor in me. Blame it on journalism and writing for television news. LOL.
I’m sipping one of my new teas I ordered that arrived today. I love Republic of Tea. This cup is Honey Ginseng green tea and it is very nice – delicate and soothing. My next cup will be Ginger Peach green tea. I have Ginger Peach black tea and LOVE it so I can’t wait to try the green tea version. I also ordered the loose leaf Moroccan Tea for Jess. It smells so good. I will wait for Jess to get home so he can try it first. 🙂 I’m TRYING to drink more tea again and less coffee – even though I’ve had three cups coffee – or was it four – today so far. I got up late today. Pumpkin woke up at two this morning after having a bad dream. She tossed and turned after crawling in with us. We both slept in till 11 AM. I know – bad. Especially since I went to bed at 11 last night and CRASHED. The three of us played Portal 2 which was a lot of fun and then watched an episode of The IT Crowd (British sitcom) which is VERY funny. I just ordered season three and four.
I know this is a rather dull post. But sometimes it’s nice to just post. It helps me gather my thoughts. And I do know I like to read the day to day things of others from time to time.
I guess that is one nice thing about the aftermath of a snowstorm – the calm that settles in. I feel very calm and at peace today. It’s a nice feeling. 🙂
