Hello dear readers, and happy Easter Sunday to you all. Thank you for making time for coffee and conversation with me on this holiday, I promise not to keep you long. I admit this holiday isn’t one I celebrate much, being an atheist and all, but I enjoy seeing my family and watching my niece and nephew enjoy their gifts is fun. I hope yours was a good one too, whether you are religious or not, it is a pretty big deal in this country.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that it is definitely Springtime here in Colorado. By that I mean the weather swings wildly from one extreme to another and last week was a perfect example. We started out with beautiful weather, our temps were in the 70s and we had beautiful blue skies on both Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday we woke to blizzard warnings and snow that shut down the whole city, which is a pretty big deal for us. The part of town I am in is reported to have gotten 25 inches of snow.By Thursday things had cleared up and the snow was being
The part of town I am in is reported to have gotten 25 inches of snow. Which makes sense considering I was sore for two days after shoveling the walk.
By Thursday things had cleared up and the snow was beginning to melt but we got more of the white stuff yesterday and we may get more by Wednesday. Hopefully, in the next few weeks, things will start getting more stable around here.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have been trying to write a tiny bit of fiction every day and I am proud to say I have actually done pretty good. I am not writing full stories here, just bits and pieces, small scenes I plan to use in my Blogging A to Z Challenge. I also have a bunch of little ideas, many stolen from prompts I found all over the internet, that I can mix and match into new stories.
I haven’ written a lot of fiction, not seriously anyway, before this and I have to say it is a very interesting experience. Something pops into my head from I don’t know where and I really do just follow it along until I come to the end. It might not be the end of the story but it is the end of what the creative part of myself is willing to give. I frantically write it all down and hope that I will still like it when it comes time to type it.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I did a little book shopping this afternoon and I picked up some really good ones. I got Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, and The Stranger by Albert Camus. I am currently reading The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus but it’s short and I expect to be done well before the end of the week. I was looking through the books I was supposed to be reading next and none of them felt right, so I got new ones.
So far this year I have read seven books which is more than I did all of last year. I am really proud of myself and I am very much enjoying the journey each author is taking me on.
If we were having coffee I would have just realized how late it is and I would apologize for keeping you so late. Thank you so much again for stopping by and listening to me ramble for so long. I appreciate you. I hope you had a good weekend and a happy easter. I’d love to hear how you have been too. Please, drop by the comments section and tell me a bit about what you have been up to.
Goodnight dear reader, and good luck in the coming week.
