Memento and more

just jot it januaryThe host of the Just Jot It January challenge asked for daily word prompt suggestions. I was scrolling through Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day website at the time and memento jumped out at me. I suggested that and it was chosen for the inspiration for today’s post!

One might think that memento would urge me to write about an object obtained in my travels or from someone I care/d about, but nay. The first thing that popped into my head was a movie, and that’s making me revisit my infrequent Movie Monday series. YAY!

January Joy

The long lines everywhere have shortened and/or disappeared. The traffic’s back to normal and is even lighter than usual some mornings and evenings. It’s 2019 and everything’s getting back to the way it should be, without holiday hubbub (and The Sickness, which has finally ended). January is one of the most…. wonderful tiiiiiiiiiiimes…. of the year!

The Best Laid Plans

And so it goes, the best laid plans. Being sick for about half of the month was not how I planned to spend December. Alas, it was what happened. I had planned to do this or that the week before and the week of Christmas, but only what had to be done was completed, not by my choice. The rest of the time was spent relaxing, recouping, and recharging. It’s paying off and I feel like a human! For several days now. The cough lingers a wee bit, but…

Zen and the art of nose blowing

Such a farce, a tease, a carrot on the end of a stick that was so much further away than I realized. The day I thought I turned a corner, I did — but only to get hit by a second truck I never saw coming. I was better than I had been, but not well. The true meaning of that word wouldn’t arrive in any real way for another five days (read: until today).

So I’m recovering, still (sinuses are in a battle for their lives as we speak). I get out of the shower last night, super exhausted.

I think to myself, “You know what you need? You need a really good night’s sleep.”

Now, this wouldn’t be a This Is How My Mind Works post if that’s just how it went. The self-conversation actually went like this:

To myself:  “You know what you need?”

My inner Samantha Baker, to me:  “You need 4 inches of bod and a great birthday.”

Me, to me, as well as Samantha:  “No. You need a really good night’s sleep.”

… Although, a birthday would be nice. Mmm. Cake….


Note: If you don’t know that I often speak in movie quotes and/or song lyrics, and/or you’re not familiar with Sixteen Candles, thanks for reading this post that doesn’t make a lick of sense to you anyway.

The Chill Is Gone

It’s a monumental moment. After four days of feeling so ill I couldn’t do anything, I am sitting! In a chair! I ate food today! And I’m able to type this post. Am I well? Not completely, no. But am I better? The lack of hacking cough says yes (still coughing, just not nearly as much). Fear not, dear reader. In addition to this post being gluten free — as all posts here at Daisy Smiley Face are, this post is certified germ-free. Continue reading “The Chill Is Gone”

This is my second post in this year’s Advent Calendar blog series at Solveig’s blog. I intended to write more, but alas, I’ve been sick for the past few days. Better this weekend than next, with the holiday and all.

Check my entry today then read the posts by others from around the world. This series is really quite lovely and a great way to connect with other bloggers. Plus! You have to click the link to see the cute photo I included with my post.

 

These little critters greeted me on a Christmas tree at a senior living facility my choir sang at. It was the one member’s mom’s holiday party, and we were the entertainment. When I joined the choir, I thought it would be fun, but when I found out they perform for seniors as part of their […]

Dale at A Dalectable Life is sharing bloggers each day of the Advent Calendar of her creation. Today, she added me and I couldn’t be more appreciative and grateful. What a wonderful little world this blogosphere is….

 

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort. Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause […]
