I made good on one of my "New Year's" growth goals..(I've given up on resolutions...so...I'm focused on growing this year)..I wanted to learn a new language...well..yesterday, I got an email offer from Rossetta Stone...The whole package is 45% off and will cost only $290 instead of the ususal $499! I almost canceled the order...even though the savings were there..I could use the money for something elso..FORGET THAT! this year is for ME...MY HEALTH...MY GROWTH! So here is a promise I made to myself....
If any of you were interested in learning a new language...check out their website...I think the offer is good til the end of the month..

Fall seven times...get up eight.

Be still and know I am God

"I vow to let go of all worries and anxiety in order to be light and free... Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It's a daily practice

It's Dewi Sant today - happy St David's Day to everybody!

Actually Richard isn't too bad most of the time, but he can't resist a bargain from the Reduced For Quick Sale, even if it's masses of calories. Plus he claims he still feels too run down to go to the gym. My blood sugar levels are still on the high side, and it would do them a lot of good, I'm convinced, if we could start exercising again.

Think not. Do.

That's Bob's reaction too for the most part. He is talking about groceries we're buying tomorrow and what "healthy" things we'll get instead of the junk stuff, so that's a start.

What irks me is the fact that if Bob would just cut his carbs, he wouldn't need the metformin at all. The doctor just put him on it because he wouldn't cut his carbs. I'd much rather cut carbs than have to take pills every day.

They have me on the maximum dose of Metformin, it didn't cure the blood sugar problem so I'm back on Gliclazide and poking holes in my finger every morning. Sugar levels are still high, so they will probably increase the dosage - they're doing a review next month. Unless I can bully Richrd back to the gym and that has a good effect. He's now admitting that he's just about over the bronchitis we both had last November - boy how that hung around. He actually enjoys the gym, wherea I'm the one that hates it. A television programme was talking about the endorphin high from exercising. This is something I've never felt.

Think not. Do.

Good Morning, or what's left of it. Hope you're having a good day.
I just called to pre-register Bob for blood work in the morning for 2 doctor's. Luckily it only takes one needle to do it all as he's needle phobic. Hoping the lab work doesn't show he's having new issues. I'm afraid his sugar could be up. He's a borderline diabetic and take Metformin for that, but they may want to increase his dosage if it's an issue and he won't be happy with that. But we'll see what the lab work shows.

Fee's book now has nearly 200 downloads, she's very pleased, and some reviews as well.

I've done another beta read, and it was a good book which I hope I've been able to give decent feedback for. Now for my homework for tomorrow's creative writing class.

Fee's first book is up on Smashwords, not on Amazon yet but maybe they're still vetting it. It's called Away With The Fairies by Felicity Knight - she kept her name when she got married. I've very proud, and I'm going to find my notebook from my creative writing group and get up a collection of flash fiction because after all I can't let her outdo me.

I'm making my hero less nice at the beginning of the book. And my heroine is going to quarrel with him over decisions she had to make in his absence.

My daughter came over to perform my Christmas present from her and her husband - two hours of cleaning and handyman services! What a wonderful present - Richard isn't good at DIY, and we've been feeling too ill to do much else. Not that I'm a big fan of housework at the best of times.

Think not. Do.

Happy New Year, everybody!

At last I'm beginning to feel better, though now it makes me pant just going up and down the stairs. So I suppose the first thing is to get back to the gym and get my muscle tone back after 6 weeks of illness.

Apart from that, I now have two manuscripts in first draft which need edits and rewrites. I made a start on my NaNo novel yesterday, 1st January, and if I do some each day it will soon be done. That's what I intend.

Think not. Do.

Busy time. Creative Writing group - good meeting, exercise on character building. Meet with some other people in the area who are also doing NaNoWriMo. We have agreed to meet on Sundays in November for mutual comfort, brainstorming and fixing plot holes.

Had friends staying last week, so the unread e-mails built up a bit. Now today we've come down south for a family funeral, but luckily the hotel has free wi-fi. Richard wanted to wear an inappropriate tie because his Uncle Gord wore one to Richard's Mum's wedding, but I persuaded him to save it for the reception. Uncle Gord would have laughed, his widow did laugh, but somebody or other would have been offended. (It was Betty Boop in scanty underwear,)

The breadmaker came in the end, and it turned out to be a better model than I was expecting. Will be trying it out this weekend, we have visitors coming, and one of them is a big bread eater.

In other news: I've spent a lot of time walking the new baby up and down. "Look baby, lights, no lights, baby in the mirror, lights ..." I think he gets bored. As my health visitor said to me when I had my daughter, there's not a lot you can do at that age, feed, cry and sleep just about covers it. If you can sit with him on your lap and re-apply the dummy from time to time he's not too bad though. He's put on 1 lb in a fortnight, which is quite a bit when you're only 8 lb to start with.

I've also zoomed past 40k words in my book, must have done at least 5k this week. Joining up the scenes I've already written. The ending is done already, but still have gaps in the middle. Onward and upward.

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

This is the third day we're sitting in waiting for a 24 hr delivery to be made. We had to do our and our daughter's shopping after dinner - figured they wouldn't be coming after 6 pm - which meant that we dropped her stuff off after 9 pm. Luckily she ws till up, you can't always rely on tht with a new baby around, she has to grab sleep when she can. But it meant unloading stuff in the dark, as she lives in deep countryside with no street lamps, and Richard missed the packs of nappies on the floor of the car. She thinks she has enough to get by till we see her again on Saturday.

The Tour of Britain bicycle race is going past her road this morning, so all the roads nearby are closed off. Not that we were going anywhere. We're still hoping that our parcel will arrive.

Think not. Do.

Sitting in my library with fleece, blanket and shawl, and my fingers are freezing. We are going to have to put on the central heating soon. Richard had the log-burning stove lit a couple of evenings ago. We have a good supply of logs thanks to our SIL, plus a few trees he hasn't cut up yet, but the heat doesn't travel well in the house from the wood-burner, it's just to heat the sitting room. Heating oil isn't too low just yet, but given a cold spell we can go through it quite quickly.

Think not. Do.

Ah Doreen, wish I could send you some Arizona sunshine....our somewhat limited rainy season is gasping to a close; and it's still warm. Even hot. It'll be warm and hot till November, which is fine with me. Ultimately as long as I don't have to shovel it, I'm fine!

Be a voice, not an echo!

Just spent a day and a half with Fee and the boys. She and Dominic have a cold, which seems to involve him waking himself up coughing and sneezing, so she's quite sleep-deprived. Her husband's paternity leave has run out. He works part-time in care, so has arranged to do his hours in long shifts, which means he's out for maybe a day and a half at a time. Means he has all the rest of the time at home, but she needs help with the toddler, who is a bundle of energy at the moment. And the weather isn't good. Apparently the cheerful weather forecasters are predicting an early winter and snow in October. Happy days.

Think not. Do.

As of today I'm down 10 lbs!! emoticon It can keep going down too.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'll be so glad when Tuesday gets here and Bob is thru his surgery. I hate this waiting. I can much better deal with what comes after the surgery than I can the waiting.

Thanks. I've loved the period ever since reading my first Georgette Heyer at the age of about 13. I just love the fashions, too. Can't beat a man in a cravat!

I'm sure it'll be a wonderful book once finished.
I love romantic intrigue books. Never been overly crazy about the historical romance ones though. But I'm sure yours will be well worth reading.

Yes, but all my life people have been saying "You ought to write a book." When I retired I was presented with pens and a pad as part of my leaving present.

Actually when I was 11 I co-wrote a book with 2 friends. I still am in touch with them. Wonder if they remember.

It's a Regency Romance, with I hope a bit of everything - humour, excitement, sentiment ... I've actually written lots of bits of it, not just the one chapter, but that chapter is the only one so far that is complete in first draft.

Not feeling too well - all that Camembert from the dead fridge! Still, I've finished the first draft of the first chapter of my novel, at last, I've set an alarm on my phone which tells me "Write the damn novel, already!" at 9:30 every morning. Have to admit I didn't obey this morning, maybe in a little while.

Good Morning,
I'm washing clothes this morning. Got 3 loads to do since I'm also washing sheets and the comforter off the bed. Since Bob got sick and was put on so much medicine, he puts off an odor when he sweats that is very unpleasant. So I find myself washing the bed stuff a lot more often than in the past.
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday.

Didn't get a new fridge, the electrical shop was very expensive. However called in on daughter, who wasn't there, but abetted by her mother-in-law we stole their spare fridge. It's a bit smaller than our old one, which wasn't big enough, but it will do till we can get a new one delivered. After the end of the credit card month, that is.

Think not. Do.
