I would like to write today but I don’t know if I will. I am still in that place where I’m trying to decide exactly what to work on.
Jenny and I have the reading tomorrow afternoon in Knoxville. I will be reading from Click, so that’s easy. Just pick a thing and read it. I may also read a couple poems or a short thing this or the other. We are planning a lunch before the reading which should be fun. It is possible that if we leave directly after the reading we would get back in time for Lessons and Carols, something Dale and I really, really want to see/hear/enjoy, but I may not have any energy left.
So just breaked a bit and put on some stew—I used an Indian Spice pack and put in celery, hamburger, minced onion (had no fresh), garlic, collards, potatoes, carrots, a small can of diced tomatoes. It smells amazing and supper is done! I hope that John and Net can come play tonight.
After having moved around a bit, I am in less pain this morning. The body work I had yesterday seems to have helped. I will try it again next week. I am going to go get in the water in just a bit. My snorkel/mask came yesterday and I’m eager to try it. Just must not over do. In, out in 30 mins. Period. No matter how good it feels. Then I will get into the hot tub and soak. Then I’m going for an eye exam as I’ve been having more trouble. Probably the fibro, but want to be sure. I do have cataracts that have been coming on.
If I do have time (and energy) this afternoon, I am going to read and comment on more of my student’s work. I did one piece yesterday afternoon. It felt good to do that teaching thing that I do and I am looking forward to doing more.
Still haven’t gotten my copy of Seneca Review. I am going to email them in just a bit and ask what’s up.
So that is my plan for the day. Move, but save. It’s the fifty percent rule. My therapist told me, again, that I have to do only half of what I feel I can do on any given day. And Jan, the new body work woman, told me to walk heel, toe, heel toe, which doesn’t come naturally to me.
Here’s to a good, rainy Saturday.
