Crappy week leading up to Friday

I’ve had a crappy week of almost no writing.

My lower back is very sore. It means my core muscles are going to mush. I blame the damn lockdown. No bootcamp allowed, physio/chiro/massage shut down, and exercising at home isn’t the same.

My teens are being teens and that’s normal but I’m over it. Give me back my toddlers.

Anyway, I escaped to mom’s after chauffeuring my son to and from his highschool and I’ve been sitting here on her couch writing stuff. Mostly updating my Patreon page.

Home office away from home – my mom’s couch

Did I tell you I have not one, but two patrons already! These two ladies are supporting me on Patreon and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be able to give them a shout-out.

My very first patron is none other than Summerhill Lane. Some of you may have read her blog or seen her comment on mine. She’s this extraordinary person with an incredibly artistic mind – she writes, she paints, and she does a million other things. Best part (for me) is she lives in my city. One day soon, when this godforsaken virus moves on, we will meet for coffee (and lunch) (and dessert) (and a picnic) (and dog walks) and I’m really looking forward to it.

My second patron is a person I already met. I don’t recall the first time we met though, as we were both infants. πŸ™ƒ Her parents and my parents remained friends for decades, making Christine and her family part of my extended family.

Christine doesn’t blog, but she tweets (@brutes123) and here’s one interesting bit I’m going to call out: she is an avid Cory Hart fan AND she met him in person. Don’t believe me? Here’s proof:

“I wear my sunglasses at night” and “Never surrender” by Cory Hart

So, that’s my update for this dark, wet, cold Friday evening. I feel like crawling into bed with my new electric blanket and sleeping until spring. Can I do that?

Didn’t think so. πŸ™„

But things are not all bad.

First, mom is baking bread. The whole house smells delicious. This is the type of bread she’s baking. It has to do with Saint Nicholas day the Swiss (us) celebrate, and I’ll tell you about it another time.

Second, I don’t have to make food for dinner, clean anything, or delegate activities and chores. I can just sit here and write. Which I may continue if the dog lets me (he’s currently trying to hump my arm and my mouse) and maybe I’ll even pour a glass of wine.

That’s a pretty good start to the weekend, don’t you think?

Happy Friday!

  1. Thank you so very much Writer of Words for the shout out and all the kind things you said about me. I can’t wait to see you for coffee and lunch and dog walking too. I will bring Gibson as I think he and Tucker will be great pals.
    Lots of love and hugs too.

      1. Only parts of Europe, though.

        I know it’s celebrated in Belgium and the Netherlands, but I hadn’t realised it was celebrated in Switzerland until I saw your post.

      2. It’s a lot more widespread than I realised.

        I’d never encountered the tradition before I moved to the Netherlands but it appears quite a few countries do celebrate it.

  2. My two favorite parts about this post are “wet” and “cold.” I miss actual winter-like weather!

    My third favorite part is “wine,” because duh.

    Congrats on the Patreon support. That’s fantastic!
