Today’s shaping up to be a good day. I made an exquisite pot of coffee today — real top-shelf stuff, Volcano Roast (or as I prefer to think of it, Volcano Roast!) and just-opened Maxwell House. Superior stuff. Just as a mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems, I’m a machine for turning black coffee and sunflower seeds into the written word — torrents of it. Got to read on the deck again this morning — a treat, as the girls don’t always sleep in the AM & I’m not always awake enough to read. The stars aligned, or something, and I got to read about a quarter of my Stephen King novel.
I also did 70 Hindu pushups today, along with 70 Hindu squats, 30 full-length situps, 4X12 leg lift & holds, and the neck exercises. I felt like a beast when I was done. I’m definitely starting to see results, so even if nobody says anything or notices, I still think it’s good. I’ll keep doing them because I’ve seen too many lose what they should have had in strength & flexibility over time. Won’t be me…at least I intend it not to be.
And to top it all off, my other blog had 301 hits yesterday, as opposed to 25-30 on a regular day. That’s a lot! I have no idea why, but I’m glad. It’s nice to see that happen once in a while. So now it’s on to a few more crucial pieces of writing I’m under the gun on, and we’ll see from there. And going to a picnic too.
I feel like a world beater right now. We’ll see what the afternoon and evening hold! Deo gratias —
