I am privileged as I am lucky enough to be able to work from home. Some days I dress up, others I do not.
Today is one of those days; I will not get out of my pajamas. I actually slept in which is often difficult due to you know who, (Mafi, my crazy cat. See picture below) I have stopped worrying about him bringing in birds. Let him eat them (yuk) saves me buying cat food. I know, a lot of cat lovers out there are going,” phew!! How disgusting. Cats should be kept indoors, away from all the dangers.” No, I feel it’s much more natural for them to go out. It’s the birds that are in peril.
So enough of cat talk. I am on my third day of doing an internet writing course. I didn’t think I would enjoy it, but I am. I can pause, go get a cuppa tea, go to the bathroom without disturbing any of the others. So this, my friends is my future. Writing classes in the morning, and part-time work in the afternoon.
Temperatures in Phoenix are unbearable right now, so evenings are spent in the pool, then maybe a movie. Such an exciting life I lead LOL. But I am happy.
We use Google for everything: addresses, recipes, homework …Have you ever googled your own name? It’s there for everyone to see. Privacy is no longer a choice. But this generation doesn’t seem to care. Look at all these realty shows where people air their dirty laundry. My poor mother is turning over in her grave. She was a very private person. Too private. I never knew much about her childhood. She did tell me stories about her time during the war in England. I just wish I had written it down. Family history is important and that’s why I started “A Personal History Business” if you know of any interesting characters, let me know.

As you get older, does your body suddenly say….less sleep, do more? Here I am again sitting at my computer at 5am watching the sun come up. I live in a friendly, over 55 community and I see other people out walking their dogs or their wives at this unearthly hour. That’s probably because we’r e in Arizona and this is the coolest part of the day. I mean who likes to go out in this 112 degree weather? Actually, we do hear about the crazy people hiking, becoming dehydrated and then having to be rescued. Doesn’t that come under “the stupid act law” ?
Actually it seems that my brain is more creative in these wee hours…

It is a pleasure to prosper myself and others.
yup … 1 am is the time some people go to bed..for me it’s in the middle of the night. (Early to bed, early to rise, especially in this summer heat) My cat woke me up so now I can’t sleep. It’s a good time to write but I’m not inspired. I just rewrote my last chapter of my novel for the third time! By the way this is the culprit.
“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”
