Yesterday, Gerry and I woke up early as normal; our bodies are accustomed to waking around 5:00am. He pulled out his Suduko and I grabbed my Android to read email, but after a while we both put our diversions away and went back to sleep. For. Three. Hours.
Oh how sweet the waking up was! It was that gentle kind of wakefulness when you feel yourself gradually become aware of the fact that you just slept well and are refreshed and ready for what the day brings. Gerry’s comment was the icing on the cake: this is what retirement will be like. Ah yes…three more years.
I spent a good part of the day today editing and revising my memoir. Exhausting. I needed a break so I did some blog-hopping at some of my favorite places to hang out and also stumbled across some new ones. Thought I would share a few with you.
Sharla Scroggs had a book suggestion on her last post. I am going to have to check out The Other Life by Ellen Meister. A few days earlier she posted a question that has me thinking: if you could go back and change five minutes of your life what would you do? Food for thought, isn’t it? What’s your answer?
I’ve been a fan of Angie Ledbetter (aka Gumbo Writer) for a long time. She shares dee-licious recipes and lotsa laughs on her blog and she is co-Publishing Editor of the Rose & Thorn Journal.
Deb Shuka just returned from New York City where she climbed to the top of Lady Liberty. Her description of the experience makes you feel like you’re right there with her.
If you are a woman of a certain age (or even if you’re not) check out Benchmark 60. I love her current post about aches and pains.
I enjoyed my blog-hopping trip this afternoon; it’s been too long since I got out and visited! As Sunday afternoon becomes Sunday evening, I hope you are enjoying the remnants of the weekend.
Okay, back to editing now.
I enjoy the revision stage of a manuscript, finding ways to layer, playing with the words, rearranging. It’s a way to get to know my story even better, inside-out. Enjoy!
I like that way of looking at it Joanne!
Aww, you are too sweet. Thanks for the linky love. I’ve been blog hopping the last couple of days too. Glad to stop by this refreshing place. xxo
Thanks, Linda, for the link and the mention. I find myself in some wonderful company.
The going back to sleep sounds like a bit of heaven!
