Assignments and Friends

Assignments - So DH says to me last night as I was looking carefully through Spectrum 18 (one of my happy things to do - LOL) that he wants assignments. "Assignments?" I query in return. "What do you mean? Do you want prompts for writing, a goal for artwork, a media in which to produce something, a deadline to meet? What kind of assignments?" "Yes" was his response - LOL.

I then go on to tell him that's why I belong to several on-line groups. They provide prompts and challenges that push me to produce writing and artwork, so they keep me busy and focused. I think, after a bit more conversation, that it is indeed this type of 'assignment' that he is looking for. So...how to couch it. What to do. If I don't give him something like that - a direction in which to head, he'll be like a rudderless boat meandering around the lake in circles and accomplishing nothing except getting in my way. I won't stand for that...so figuring something out will be very, very important.

Friends - aren't they the absolute best? I know I've spoken of Seth before, but he's such a fabulous person and I'm so lucky to have him back in my life again. His response to my post from yesterday may have solved some computer issues that I was having without my having to tear my hair out or having any additional white (we'll just call them silver...it's so much more civilized) hairs decorate my already pale head. Two on-line friends posted wonderful music videos by A-ha this morning that put me into a wonderful mood for the day, and the friend I do beta reading for had a fast turnaround on the latest chapter and already has her revisions waiting in my in-box for me. How wonderful!

And, finally, today is Saturday. I slept in an extra 20 minutes, getting up at 3:50 instead of my usual 3:30, I'll work an hour less because we close at 5:00 pm instead of 6:00 pm, and I'll treat myself to breakfast (maybe) or oatmeal (maybe) - I haven't made up my mind about which edible item sounds best just now. I'll have Italian for dinner (yippee!) - all in all, Saturdays are good days. Oh! And I can sleep in tomorrow morning, maybe even until 9:00 am! How fabulous! Have a fabulous Saturday on your own little part of the world and treat people with kindness, happiness, and love. Hug a person, a pet, a horse, and pass it on.
