63 degrees when I woke up this morning
Walked the dog
Drank some coffee
Read an old book I’d never read before
Chatted with a neighbor... for too long.
Teachers went back to school today.
A consultant now.
Love my freedom!
Freaked out by it...
Should I still be sitting here reading and writing?
On my own schedule...
But not on a pay schedule...
Another cup of coffee then I will paint the deck.
To some the thought of going to a “meeting” about your blog might dredge up images of offices with people in stuffy clothes and judgemental attitudes and deadlines and stress. Our blog meetings are quite the opposite.
We prefer to meet outside
Sitting on the patio
Lawnmowers and light traffic as soothing white noise
Helicopter seeds fall on our heads as we giggle and sip more champagne, relieved that it’s not bird poop
Angela’s chickens cluck and scamper around the yard
It takes a special kind of friendship to work on a project together
To share writing and ask for real feedback
So rewarding to share a creative experience with a friend
We are sitting on my back deck drinking Prosecco… no, it is not too early for a cocktail, September is just around the corner and Tuesday afternoon blogging sessions will soon be less relaxing and more worky-worky. We just started our blog, so we still meet each time we are about to post...confidence in numbers I suppose. I have a small back yard that backs into a parking lot of a failing shopping center; my house makes a triangle with the hospital and the fire house so we are easily distracted by the sirens, my neighbor cutting her lawn, my dog barking at people dropping unwanted clothes at the thrift shop collection bins and my chickens clucking around. We check our Twitter...the pride we felt last week at our first 4 followers has diminished as we still have 4 followers. Then we see Slice of Life. Another distraction...a wanted one this time. We set to typing... then we will get to editing each other’s proposed post and another glass of Prosecco.
