Riding The Fences
Just got in from riding the fences with Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Actually, I was tidying up a bit in the front yard, as I've deemed it the "front room" for flylady zone purposes. So, 15 minutes of sprucing up, accompanied by the world's talkiest cat. I also went for a nice little ride this morning, concentrating on some hill work. Hill, used with literary license.
Starting the countdown and packing for the trip next week. I'll hire my sister to come in every couple of days to water for me, otherwise I'll return to crispiness. The weather in NS is in the mid-fifties to mid-sixties. I hope layers will work for me. I'd prefer a nice 75, but it may not reach that.
Okay, so did you know that you can turn your coins into iTunes dollars at those coinstar machines at the grocery store? Well, you can. And I've got just enough of a credit for one good audiobook to download to my iPOD for the trip. I don't have an ereader, so audio it must be. Give me your best recommendation for a book that had a big impact on your life. Is there a book you reread for inspiration? I'm looking for something in the spiritual/self-help/motivational genre. What do you think I would most benefit from at this point in my life (and I promise not to take offense :-))? There will be some quite time on this trip and I plan to do some more reflecting, inventory work, reading (or listening) and writing. I welcome your suggestions.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get in the zone.
ETA: I've read Bossypants and loved it.
