Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Natalie the Explorer. I’m moving like a conversation with a true Southern grandma on a hot porch. So I guess this calls for tea. 🙂 Have whatever you like.
Part of this long conversation on the porch would include long pauses, allowing one to take in the scenery, which is beautiful. It’s not the Mexican Riviera, but it is beautiful nonetheless. If you decide to love your life, it must be an unconditional embrace of the ups and downs and quiet moments of greenery, sunshine, or moonlight. In my humble opinion. 🙂
Yes, my first week of school went smoothly with the students, but I had a setback with the shoulder that involved more inflammation in my shoulder, arm, and hand. I have to use a computer at work but do so sparingly. I’m asking others for help with carrying heavy things and writing on the board. So, this is still a mystery. I will say that I seem to benefit from the energy of my 6th grade students and younger colleagues, so I’m grateful for that! Humor is an elixir that helps me survive each day.
An appointment in 10 days should give me some answers on the shoulder situation. I was quite teed at my primary doc’s office for never answering the phone this week and headed to a Care spot instead for help with the inflammation.
I feel like the man in the movie who only had 100 words left to speak for the rest of his entire life. He had to make them count. So, that’s my excuse for keeping this short. Honestly, I just woke up and started this on my phone. Half of it is through text to speech. LOL. I guess one benefit of text to speech is that it forces a person to really speak clearly or there will be a lot of ” typos.”
Oh well, I was able to sleep in late today and wake with my dog, my canine sympatico, at the foot of the bed. So I thought I’d keep this short, but it doesn’t seem that short. Such are the best laid plans of mice and men.
***Note: I wasn’t going to do this. Because of my arthritis. Therefore, in rebellion, I’ll start my challenge by writing about arthritis. Take that! I also wasn’t going to do this because of my many other writing projects; because of my busy full-time job, my family requirements, volunteer commitments, blah, blah, blah. Let’s face it. I am a writer. My students have been asking me about that a lot as the word seems to be going around. I want to inspire them to do an alphabet journal and I will share some of my A-Z entries to inspire them. Can anyone think of a better reason to rebel against my aches and my fatigue? I was sure I could not follow the rules and may not keep up with responding to others’ blogs. We will see; one can only try, right? I might as well let my mind take the helm!
The theme for my blog is “Who I am.” Yes, it’s wide open. It will include little tidbits about me, poems I’ll share, and stories. I hope you don’t think I’m a cheat. I am a little bit of a rebel, though. Just ask my yoga instructors. 🙂 As I said, one can only try, right? Let’s do this!
