Hey Company Girls! It’s good to be back having coffee. I missed out on the last two because two weeks ago Thursday, I had a tubal ligation. I spent last week recovering and read three books! That was so much fun. I don’t remember the last time I sat down and read three books in one week. I read Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees, Ursula LeGuin’s The Left Hand of Darkness, and Princess Kasune Zulu’s Warrior Princess: Fighting for Life With Courage and Hope (Julie, I promise I will have that book review to you tomorrow! Sorry it’s taken so long!). I’m now reading Richard Wiseman’s 59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot. Last week I took it easy, read, and napped when I wanted to. A friend brought by dinner for us one night, and another friend did some cleaning for me too. The Hubby took fabulous care of me.
Unfortunately the week of recovery morphed into the week of sloth. I didn’t get much done this week. I started writing my book review Monday when Laura and I wrote together, and that’s all the writing I’ve done this week. The Book Proposal, which is so close to being finished, has not been touched. It’s obvious I have not blogged. I’ve been a lump, and The Cat has not been a good influence on me. I started turning that around yesterday. I made myself get off the couch and go for a walk. We’re having gorgeous fall weather here, and I went out and enjoyed it. I also went to a reception at a gallery where a friend of mine is showing some of her work. Movement is a good thing. I feel a lot better today. I also started saying my night prayers and doing my nighttime yoga routine last night. I have to get back to my nighttime rituals: they make the next to morning so much easier.
I’m feeling a lot better today, and I will be moving today too. I need to go to Target, and I want to dust and clean up the kitchen. I also plan on doing the final edit for punctuation and grammar on Sample Chapter 2 of The Book Proposal. And I’m blogging! But I really need to start planning the posts for The Blog and creating a schedule. That’s the goal for this weekend.
That’s was my week. How was your week?

Thank you for stopping by everyone! I was busy this weekend, but I will be by tonight and tomorrow to say hi on your blogs.
Joyce, as far as I’m concerned Sept 1 is the first day of fall, regardless of what the “meterological” definition of spring is. 🙂
Sounds like you needed to take it easy…sounds like a pretty nice week, actually. Hope you are back to 100% soon! Good luck with all on your plate!
Hope you are 100% recovered soon, and enjoy the fall weather. We had our Fall Festival in town today even though it’s not officially Fall yet. =p Take it easy.
Good to hear that you took it easy when you needed to….and reading is a great way to recover! Have a wonderful wknd!
In my book, a Target trip is the PERFECT way to rejoin the world 😉
