It is my full intention to do some power-blogging tonight. I've been so busy with life that I haven't really had a chance to do the writing I've been thinking in my head. I might need to invest in a mini recorder or a dictation machine. Everything I do...everything I see...I want to blog. It's insane. But by the time I get home, showered, fed and rested, it's time to start a brand new day. If it weren't for my digital camera, I might forget what's been keeping me so busy these days. I have movies from Netflix sitting here, collecting dust. And they will continue to do so tonight...till I get my fill of AOL-J. God help me stay awake and alert!
I know I keep saying pictures of Cheryl are coming ... and they really are. But I'm such a perfectionist that I can't choose just one picture. I can't find the best shot. They each tell a different story. I keep thinking I'll use the next one and then ... suddenly ... it's midnight. But I'm going to choose at least one to post tonight.
Perhaps I should just do what Cheryl does ... take only one picture! Makes for easy choosing. This is the only picture she got of today's try on the rings. I wasn't as strong as I was the other day. I had just come from a full day of dogwalking - and I'd just eaten a chocolate covered frozen banana. No joke. I've never had one before. It was amazing! But in this picture, I can see exactly where the chocolate landed in my body. Geesh, weeks off chocolate and still it knows exactly where to go. Ugh. Time for abdominal workouts. Not to mention rebuilding muscle in my scrawny arms. It's pathetic what a month of illness will do to my body. I digress.
My favorite thing about this picture is my Peter Pan shadow in the sand. Thanks Cheryl. Great shot!
After two tries today, I completely understand the difficulty Cheryl had holding the steering wheel. My palms were so tender - as if they'd been sunburned. No blisters or broken skin...yet. Let'shope I never see that day.
