Tis the weekend! As I said last weekend, I would normally participate in the WeekendCoffeeShare, which some are still apparently trying to do, but our lovely host is MIA for the past few weeks and it looks like still today. I’m all for time away from tech and writing, but I like connecting each week with people. So I’ll write a lil’ post for the weekend, like I do. And it includes an update on last week’s wee announcement!
I’ll start with the news update: if you read last week, you may remember that I miss visiting with everybody in a conveniently located way to find them all each week, so I’m creating a blog linkup. It’s #DSFWeeklyRewind and it starts on Friday. A friend pointed out that the first day is Friday-The-Thirteenth, which I hadn’t even noticed, but I like black cats, so we’ll go with that’s a lucky day! #DSFWeeklyRewind’s linkup opens at noon (ET) on Fridays. The linkup will close at midnight (ET) on Sundays.
I’ll write a sticky post with some fun guidelines and all that jazz. In the meantime, please follow @DSFWeeklyRewind on The Twitter (only doing Twitter — I’m not on Facebook). If you tag your tweets with the fancy handle and/or the hashtag each week, I’ll retweet your posts on The Twitter.
I hope you’ll join in! I’ve visited with some of you these past few weeks, but not all. I know it’s easier if we’re all linked in one place, so I hope that my linkup will be helpful in that regard and also lots o’ fun! I’ll reveal all on Friday, but in the meantime, here’s one fun thing (I’m working on others) for all you rewinders:
I found this picture at Pixabay. There are so many talented people posting work for free there. Of course, I leave a “tip” — because I can’t make some of these types of images (yet) and it’s a great help.
So this week… This week was my vacation. I did what I wanted to do, spent a lot of time alone and indoors (that’s Introvert Me calling the shots) and not traveling too far (that’s Anxiety trying to control). I visited a museum I’d never been to, and other things, which I’ll write about in time. But summer reared its ugly head. I spent a little time outside, but eventually retreated. Too many bugs trying to dine on me and too much humidity for me to stand it. Here’s a photo from me, outside!
One particular inside thing I enjoyed (in addition to the museum) is The Empath’s Survival Guide online class I’m taking, part of the mental school work I’m doing this fall. Things popped up this week, for writing and also just for processing, that let me know I’m on the right track and doing what I need to do, to get where I want to be.
I also blogged! My inaugural Song Lyric Sunday: That Particular Time connected me to some new fun people (and let me listen to one of my favorite Alanis Morissette songs over and over). Wednesday’s review of This Is Us: Flaws and All had me contemplating whether week 2 was as good as week 1. Then, I made my triumphant return — Thursday Doors: Reopen. The door I posted goes with the theme of self-investigation for this Autumn. The fun people of Thursday Doors were very welcoming upon my return, which was so nice.
Two more days of vacation and whatever I want… or nothing at all. Hey, if I decide to do nothing, could one of you let me know when I’m done?
Until next time… peace.
