Well, I got me some cowboy boots.
You might recall, from my Birthday post, that some of my friends pitched in to give me a gift card to buy a pair because I kept entering contests on Facebook trying to win some.
I debated on whether to be practical and buy an iPad or groceries with the gift card, but this past week I came to my senses and used the card as they intended me to, to buy boots.
I'm a Texan, after all.
And because I'm a girl, I used what was left on the card for a mani/pedi. I felt very self-indulgent.
(Thank you again, sweet friends!)
I was standing on the front porch after my morning walk, filling up the puppies' water bucket, when I heard this buzzing sound. Just three feet away from me, a tiny hummingbird was investigating our red birdhouse. He finally gave up and buzzed away, leaving me feeling very blessed.
Some things just remain amazing, no matter how many times you see them, don't they?
My son's wedding is getting ever closer, but I'm not nervous or anything. During my own wedding, I calmed myself down so much I was semi-comatose...sorta zombie-like, only without the killing... and barely remember it.
I hope that's not happening again...
My professional tagline is "writer, blogger, photographer" but I often doubt the veracity of it, and this is why:
I have written a dozen blog posts this past week - in my head. You'll never read them because I've already forgotten half of them, and wouldn't have time to write them even if I did remember them.
I have some great ideas for improving my books and stories, but haven't had time to actually sit and work on them, or start the new stories buzzing in my head, or edit the dozens of photos I've captured this past week of flowers and birds and trees and other visions of spring here in the Hollow, much less post them on sites where they can be purchased.
But I've decided to keep the tagline and consider myself a writer, blogger, photographer on hiatus, because...
