A Week in Review.....

Friday, September 10, 2010....


I can't believe how quickly the summer went and that it's already the 10th of September. In 5 days, I begin national birthday week and for those of you remember from last year, I truly embrace the week.

This past week, I've applied for a position and was informed I was over qualified because I have a B.A. and not an Associates degree.

This past week, I discovered a new vegetable: Kale. I love it.

This past week, hubby befriended the cutest older gentleman who operates his own farm 1 mile from my house.

This past week, I had a break through in the piece I'm writing and realized it's crap and am ready to start over (seriously, I was writing a scene involving a conversation between 2 characters and I was bored).

This past week, I realized it's my sister's birthday on Sunday and I get to spend the day with her and YogaGirl participating in my first sprint triathlon. My sister, Science Girl, inspires and shows me that age should never inhibit you from pursuing your passion.

This past week, I added the "elusive" Tree Kangaroo to my Yahoo alerts. This is HUGE because the only other Yahoo alert I set up was in 2003 for the Snakehead fish. I'm still fascinated by them.

This past week, I got to know some women from my writing workshop outside our normal setting and really enjoyed talking with them.

This past week, I noticed it's getting darker earlier and it sucks.

There it is. My week in review. I hope everyone had a fun, if not, quirky week.

I have never tried kale, but I am now intrigued. Sounds like your week was full of ups and down. Hope you get to relax now. Happy weekend to you!

LMB, sounds like you had a great week. I too love Kale, add some white beans to it and make a soup, it's tasty! September also marks the time of the year when some of the best broccoli rabe is available...I recommend that too. I just love greens!

sounds like a great week!

I love it when it gets dark earlier... maybe just cuz I love fall so much.

I also have a thing for little old men. I can't help it, they make me smile. Except the one that bled all over my pharmacy today. That was kinda gross.

I love the fall but I don't like it getting dark so early! Evening is such a lovely time.

The farmer friend sounds like a nice way to meet neighbors. And I think it is more fun to have friends of all ages. Kale is one of my favorite veggies. Glad you like it too. If you are bored with your characters conversations, it is a wise person to see it, admit it, and change it.

Kale? I've never tried that. Heard it is really healthy. Will have to expand my palate. Hope you have a good week next week.
