Journal

When all is dark
And the world asleep,
Then cunning-like
The thoughts do creep.

Warily I go
Through mist and mott and fen,
Guided by a candle-light
And the scratching of my pen.

Hello!

Good morning, Readers!


I'm not actually posting today.  In fact, I'm not anywhere near a computer.  This is day one of a long trip to Australia where I will attempt to relax a bit (hah!).


I will give you a clue as to where I will be spending the majority of my time today:


I'll give you a hi...

I'm Going to Miss 'Em

Good afternoon, Readers.


You thought I had forgotten about you, didn't you?  Not so!  Today was day two of training my holiday replacement, so I let her at the computer all morning.  She has gone home now, so I have the machine.  MWAH HAH HAH HAH HAH!


This morning I awoke to the cats cuddling together on the end of my bed.  My heart melted a tiny bit.  I love the kitties.  I'm away for three weeks soon (I fly out tomorrow....

THREE DAYS!

Good morning, Readers.


I'm sure you're sick to death of the countdown, but I'm excited and nervous (therefore suffering) and thus you must be suffering along with me.  So there.


There are so many things I meant to do before this that I haven't yet done.  My room is still a disaster area.  I need to scrub out some things in the kitchen.  I have a lot of laundry to do, and I must pack.  Also, I have to record and upload a vlog, write ...

Gah! FOUR DAYS!

Good morning, Readers!


In four days I shall be sitting at the Ottawa aeroport waiting to get on a plane.  It's been many, many years since I travelled, and I'm quite nervous.  I'll be travelling alone this trip, until I meet family at my destination.  So... SQUEAK!


It still hasn't really sunk in yet.  I have the itinerary.  I have my passport.  I have my books (one for editing, one for pleasure reading and one to give to my sis...

Stuff and Things!

Good morning, Readers!


How is life in your neck of the woods?


I'm doing alright.  You remember when I wrote about the strike to the inside of the knee I received and how it didn't look like it was going to bruise?  Well, it bruised.  You can barely see the black right now, but it is extremely tender to touch and the blacks and blues are starting to show through.  Sigh.  There go any plans on wearing shorter skirts in the near future...

So Far, So Good

Good morning, Readers!


Yesterday went well.  My tummy behaved itself.  Training was ridiculous fun.  We got to work on knees and elbows.  Yay!  I managed to get kicked in the knee, though.  Right on the inside where seldom a strike lands.  It really hurt.  It's very sore today and a little swollen, but doesn't look like there'll be a bruise.  Phew!


Tonight is a very special night.


I have no plan...

Is it Stress?

Good morning, Readers!


Well last night was a complete write off.  I had things to do, places to go, things to do...


It all went to pot.  At the end of the day, my stomach decided it didn't want to live any more.  Consequently, neither did I.  I went home and collapsed into bed and there I stayed.  I did nothing but curl up into a ball and curse the fates.


The thing is, I didn't do or eat anything unusual yesterday....
