Keeping Up

Yeah, yeah, it's been over a month since I last posted. But in my defense, I've been finishing up the year at the restaurant, and gearing up for holiday season with my jewelry business. This used to be the time of year I sat around all day and read books, and wrote for hours on end. Not so much anymore.

Now if you count what I've posted on Twitter, I've written a novel's worth of Tweets. But we have Sunday night chats, so I don't count all of the Tweets as time I've wasted when I should have been doing something else. And just keeping up with the "friends" on Twitter is very time consuming. And worth every second spent on the darned sight.

So the restaurant is closed for the winter season, and the jewelry business is surpassing last year's numbers, and writing, well, I have plenty of time to write, but I've chosen to spend the first weeks off from the restaurant with my husband. Oh, that's right, just one more thing to keep up with, family and home. The house is the cleanest it's been all year, and the dogs are thrilled to have company all day.

The horses? What, horses too? Yup, I have a lot of things to keep me busy in my 24 hours a day. The horses have just been pasture ornaments, even though the weather has been in the 50's. Shame on me. Soon I'll be too old to enjoy them, and they'll be too old to enjoy the work.
On my gravestone (which I won't have, because I'm not going to be buried) it'd read, "She was always trying to keep up. And she milked every minute of life for what it's worth."
Hopefully those words won't be written for years and years. lol
And now I'm keeping a blog too.
Maybe I'll post a list of my things I do in the next post.
