It’s 7:55 pm and I finally finished this chapter. I’ve been stuck at this place in my book for about a week but today was a GREAT day of writing and I victoriously ploughed through my writing block. It took twelve hours of writing, thinking and rewriting but I did it! I’m still wearing the same red and yellow striped flannel pajama bottoms and blue cotton nighty that I slept in last night BUT I added a fashionable pair of grey and white polka – dot socks and topped up my attire with a warm green sweater since the early morning hours around here were rather nippy. There’s not much beauty to behold but there’s a finished chapter!
I had to laugh – when I finally got up to stretch and grab yet another cup of tea, I looked back to my writing hole and this is what I saw.
Good thing that Chris is away! To be honest, the mess wouldn’t bother him but I think he would comment on my outfit!
I thought back through my day and other than being hunched over on the couch with my laptop, I took three bathroom breaks,(way too much tea!) one trip outside to the compost pile, two visits to the refrigerator, answered four telemarketing calls and took a couple of b-i-g stretches while I watched the sun set. That’s it. That was my day. I didn’t even make time to exercise and that’s very unusual for me.
How can a day like that feel so good?
I think it has something to do with the desires of my heart.
I never get tired of writing and the sense of accomplishment that I feel as I work my way through each chapter just tickles my fancy. It’s pure delight.
I love every minute of this mess and I am so thankful for this glorious season in my life.
