One of those days

We all have 'em, those days that just don't seem to gel no matter how hard we try. I've had 'em. You've had 'em. As I said, we've all had 'em.

Conversely, we've all have wonderfully flowing, everything-falls-easily-into-place days. You know the ones. The sun seems brighter than usual. The air smells sweeter. Every task requires less effort. Each moment seems like it shines.

I had one of those days yesterday. I woke to the winds of change, remember? We did have branches down in our yard. Tomatoes were blown clear off their plants. It sure made harvesting them interesting! I've never reaped tomatoes from the lawn but at least they were all unblemished. The silver lining, I guess, to having a crop blasted off the vine! But the wind, which persisted all day long, was an added attraction to a day that was...perfect.

We had breakfast on the back porch. The sun was shining and it was breezier than usual but it didn't matter. We enjoyed pancakes with blueberries still warm from the sun sprinkled on top.

Then, we spent some time in the gardens, rescuing crops that had been buffeted through the night. Like I said, nothing was much worse for the wear.

And yesterday afternoon I began writing something new. It began like a dream and snowballed. I love the feeling of fingers flying over keyboard. Honestly? There are few things I like more than bringing what I see in my mind to life on the screen. Days like yesterday make up for the ones when writing requires much more effort.

Not a bad Monday. In fact, it was a great day in every respect. I'm hoping the breezy influence lingers long enough to finish the story I began yesterday. I've already got a destination planned for it, and am anxious to finish writing...then send it off on a gust to, hopefully, find a good home.

What about you? How did your Monday go? I hope it was a good one.

Happy Tuesday!

Sounds like you had a very positive day and good luck with finishing your story.

The best news was hearing from my sister that she has a new job.

Sounds like a great day. There's nothing like that feeling of the words flowing and your fingers flying!

I was busy yesterday with kids, the house and writing. Typical day for me!

Glad your tomatoes are okay. Pancakes with blueberries sound yummy - wish I lived closer. :)

I'm excited for you that you started writing something new - I'm sure it was brilliant.

My Monday was spent outside cleaning up broken glass and picking up limbs from the yard. But that's okay - we got it done.

Sounds like a super day. I can't wait to hear more about what you're writing.

I did laundry. Loads and loads and loads of laundry. But between folding I"m reading Legal Tender. I love Granny! She is a hoot!!

Me too! I'm reading Legal Tender and it is super. Lindy has a lot on her plate but it looks like she can handle it all. Even Granny who is too funny! I love the book. What are you writing now? I am curious!!
