Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at eclecticali.com. I normally would be drinking coffee right now, but I’m putting it off since I want to maximize my relaxation today. I really need to relax, (spoken with a nervous tick in my eye).
Do you know what middle-schoolers are like in the springtime? You do? Okay, multiply that by twenty. Add in a dash of test anxiety and total relief when it’s all over. I mean, nobody wants to learn anything right after taking an hour and a half test. That describes my week.
Add to that my participation in a screenplay contest that required me to learn a whole new format for my story ideas. Formatting in Word? Not my forte. I am thinking short stories are more for me. But I did it! I finished and sent it off. Now we wait for feedback. I don’t expect to win anything. At any rate, I’ll be editing a novel in the meantime, so I guess these two months will go by quite quickly. I have a crick in my neck and a tick in my eye. Hence, the reason I am delaying my coffee. No, you go right ahead. I really don’t mind.
I can delay my coffee need; I have an appointment at noon for ninety minutes in a float tank! I remember how much better my stressed shoulders felt after the last time. Except, last time, I kept coming back to my thoughts and observations. I had a cup of coffee before I went. I don’t need to be so alert. Maybe I just need to slip a way for a little while…
It’s worth a try. I feel like a mermaid in the tank, and while it’s not as stylish and roomy as the one pictured here (plus the fact that my face is above water), I love the feeling of floating. Either way, it’ll be good for relaxing my body. I’m sure, when I’m done, I’ll head right for the coffee shop on the corner.
That’s my life lately. I still have half of my editing to do on Undercurrents in Time. Have you read Detours in Time yet? The sequel is coming…
In the meantime, I’ve listened to Lana del Rey a lot lately. Do you have any suggestions for inspiring music? I always like something new.
Have a great week! How are things in your corner of the world? Please send your suggestions for music to inspire and help me kick back. Not the kind to put me to sleep, but to take me away from the day’s frustrations and checklists of what is undone. It’ll all wait.
