Today has been a hustling day!
I had a lunch date with an old friend, and on the way, I went by the grocery store for cat food and to run my piggy bank through Coinstar. Got enough for the groceries and lunch. 🙂 Amazing how spare change can add up. I had almost $40.
After that, I came home and started laundry so Newell would have work clothes tomorrow. Three loads done.
I also made several more pieces of jewelry today–including one that may be my favorite piece yet:
The discs are really copper and the owl silver, but the lighting was funky. I may have to keep this one, or at least make another one just like it. I only have two of the “Moon” disks (they are re-purposed earrings) so one more is all I can make. IF I have another owl this size.
My writing project today was a guest blog piece for National Horror Month. That was fun to do. When it is posted, I’ll link it.
Made delicious Chili Macaroni for dinner replacing most of the “hamburger” with a can of Amy’s Medium Chili. (I don’t buy it by the 12 pack, but that might be a smart idea…) Amazing what a little tinkering with a recipe can do.
And now for your poem of the day:
Windows Within Windows…
The building is abandoned…
rough wood silvered with weather
the glass long gone if ever it was there.
The room inside is hollow,
empty without essence.
Shadows cast by nothing…
But, through quirk of Fate,
or loving care,
through a window is a window…
And through that window–
is the world.
Today I cleaned ― laundry, went grocery shopping
Today I weighed ― 184.3
Today I wrote/revised ― Horror blog post and your moment of poem 🙂
