For the final full week of October I set a goal in my calendar to write to larger blog posts per week. When I woke up this morning I was drawing a blank, and quite honestly, I still am. Then I thought I'd make a list of things, because that is the way my brain is functioning right now. LIsts upon lists as I prepare for a mini-relaunch of FitPOWER this November. My control freak mind took over again and said, "Lists are for daily roasts." I told it to shut up, because my blog my rules. So here is a list of things that are on my mind. Enjoy.
1. I love reading. There is nothing wrong with a good Netflix binge, but I read to create the world in my image. Such an egotistical thing to do, but when you think about it, any time you read a fictional tale, even though the author gives you descriptors of the characters, the settings, and the mood, it is still done in your image. Your spin on how their hair will look, even though you know the color. You made it the way you enjoy and perceive that color. If the character is poor and there is a description of their clothing, you still take those descriptors and it evolves into the way you view the clothing of a poor person. It's like no matter what you get to play the role of the creator.
3. All of the art in our house was either a. painted by a friend while they were wined up at a drink and draw, b. from an artist local to the city/region we visited on a trip, c. bought from one of our own local art festivals where the artist also lives in the area, or d. one of the many sketches that kids ages 8 and under have drawn for me while waiting for mom or dad to get done lifting. I'm opening a mini gallery for d. OH! And e. one of my insta/bjj/lifting friends does art as a hobby so I buy off of them, as well. I just enjoy supporting passionate people.
5. As a side hobby, I enjoy restoring old furniture. One of my favorite things to do is go to Goodwill and find a sturdy piece of wood furniture, bring it home.......and store it because eventually I'm going to pursue this hobby! Calling myself out here. Alright, this winter I will complete 2 restorative projects. You heard it here first! Otherwise, I'm just turning into a hoarder, and that is NOT the way I want to get famous.
Until next time folks. Cheers!
Thoughts on Vacation Coffee
The world is brighter, the moments sweeter, and the coffee bolder while on vacation. Vacation coffee is the slowness of the morning before the world wakes up. It is the smell of your favorite roast and the rustling of crisp pages turning in a book.
