Signs

Well, hello there!

Are you still here? 

Wow!

You are a really kind person.

Thank you for that.

I sincerely appreciate your presence.

 

Obviously, I have been absent from this space for quite some time, but you know what? I miss it. I miss you. I miss this space. I miss being able to simply pop in and say hello, share a part of my day, ask how you’ve been, and wait in quiet contemplation and anticipation for any sign of life.

So thank you for all the times you have swung by.

I am eternally grateful for your silent support. I am also grateful for your LOUD support.

I’m not picky.

Fire: bad. Bread: bad. Support: good. 

 

So maybe I needed a sign.

Maybe I needed to seek one.

Maybe the sign I was looking for was so blatantly obvious that I couldn’t see it. 

Sometimes we see what we want and it seems so far away when what we need is sitting right in front of us.

It’s like lusting after a pair of Louboutin’s when what you really long for is a wicked cozy pair of fuzzy slippers. 

One might make people go “Wow!”, but will it make you go “Wow!”? No. No it won’t. Well, I suppose I can only speak for myself, but one of those would make me go “Oww!” not “Wow!” and is simply not my style, so why bother? I can’t afford the shoes or to waste a single second of my very limited and precious time on this planet trying to make someone else go “Wow!”. Can you? 

Allow me. 

No. No you can’t.

So …

 

All this to say, thank you for reading.

I hope you continue to stick around.

I have vowed to post every day in November with the hopes of getting my groove back and forming a new and improved writing habit.

 

My sign?

November is National Blog Posting Month. (This is where, if we were cartoons, an anvil – or perhaps an old timey typewriter – would fall on my head.) 

Yup.

That – in conjunction with a few other doozies from the Universe – is most definitely a sign.

 

Do you believe in signs? Does the Universe speak to you? 

Feel free to tell me a ‘signs from the Universe’ story in the comments. You know I’ll be replying because the Universe told me I have to be here every day in November. It’d be awesome to have something to do. 😉

M.O.N.D.A.Y. (Maybe Owl Never Develop A Yen)

 

It’s been over three weeks since I posted anything here.

Maybe no one else noticed, but it has been causing me some pretty gross anxiety and so I thought maybe if I make a pact with myself* to post something new every single day this week I can unblock the writer’s block that is plaguing me, of late.

 

I have lots to say. It’s the getting it out that has become an issue.

Here is a brief list of things I’d like to share with you.

 

  1. End of summer teeny road trip wrap-ups.
  2. Lost and found mysteries.
  3. Fun photos from around the Maritimes.
  4. Super Moon shenanigans.
  5. Cool local events coming up.
  6. Hot yoga perspectives.
  7. Back to school Thing news.
  8. Yummy recipe roundups.
  9. Return to Zumba high jinks.
  10. Guest blog post possibilities.**
  11. Friday Family Fun Night additions.
  12. Exciting movie news for families.
  13. After school special snacks.
  14. Happy-making organizing hacks.
  15. Meal planning mania.

 

So, what do you think? It’s worth a shot, no?

I am going to give it the old college try.***

 

*I’d try making a pact with the Devil, but Beelzebub often disguises himself as potato chips and well, we all know how that would end.

**I can’t make this stuff up. When I went to verify that, yes, in fact I *was* using the word “yen” correctly, (See? See how awful anxiety can be? Second guessing all the things that are typically old hat? Oh yeah! That’s a laugh and a half. NOT!), this is the definition that came up in my Apple “Dictionary”:

yen 2 |yeninformal noun [ in sing. ] a longing or yearning: [ with infinitive ] :  she always had a yen to be a writer. <– Really?!? Even my Mac Mini Mocks me. Ugh.

***Then I am going to change into my poodle skirt, sweater, scarf combo and celebrate with a malted at the soda shoppe! Gee whiz!
