It’s not Thursday, but here are thirteen random things none-the-less…

  1. In case you haven’t seen it on Facebook or Twitter, I now have short and sassy red hair. Just reflecting my new attitude! Smile. (Maybe I’ll add “sassy” to my word for the year. What do you think? It goes well with “joy”!)
  2. I’m writing a book! Really truly! It’s happening and the words are flowing and I’m having so much fun. Chapter three is beginning to emerge this afternoon. (It may mean, however, that you won’t see a lot of profound writing around this little ol’ blog for awhile. Bear with me.)
  3. I’m also working on a little collaborative e-book that’s shaping up to be a lovely piece of work and I can’t wait to share it with you. In a few weeks.
  4. AND I’m working as a story coach for two people writing their own books, and I’m loving that too. It’s a line of work I didn’t think I’d get into, but I’m enjoying it so much I’d be happy to take on new clients. Know of anyone who could use my wisdom? Send them here for more info.
  5. Martyn Joseph is singing one of my favourite tunes to me right now and I am in love. “In the veil of circumstance, waiting for grace.” Mmmm… lovely.
  6. I ran today, even though I was so tired I wanted to crawl back into bed. More than 4 miles – the furthest ever! Do you think I can make it to 13 miles by June for the half-marathon?
  7. I started taking a new art class. Acrylics this time. At Forum Art Institute. I am LOVIN’ the vibe at that place. Don’t know why I didn’t go there sooner.
  8. Speaking of classes, it looks like I’ll be taking on more of them at the university. Classes that actually sound even MORE enjoyable than the one I’m teaching, if that’s possible. It seems my students raved enough about me to the administration that they want me back for more. Grin.
  9. On the flip side, for the second time since I started this self-employment thing, it looks like a government contract is being put on indefinite hold. Do you think perhaps I’m not meant to go back to government work? (This one may still pan out – just not right away.)
  10. Now Bruce Cockburn is singing “come all you stumblers who believe love rules, stand up and let it shine” and I’m lovin’ that too.
  11. I am becoming rather addicted to kalamata olives.
  12. An hour from now, I get to hang out with a good friend over chai lattes. A happy thing to do on a Friday afternoon.
  13. Olives, writing, teaching, coaching, running, red sassy hair, good music, good friends… it all adds up to a pretty contented version of me.
