I finished Phase 2 of the secret project a lot sooner than I thought I would. I’m thankful for this, as it gives me more time to work on other projects, such as editing Divided and catching up on How to Think Sideways.
I completed Lesson 6, though I still have to do the exercises for Lesson 5. I also printed out Lesson 7 to start reading through this week…there’s a lot to that one! So I’m slowly catching up. Another week or two and I’ll be back on track.
The past 2 weeks I’ve learned that it’s very beneficial for me to set aside Sundays to do nothing but work on writing. And by “do nothing” I mean don’t make any plans to do anything with anyone. I’m not writing all day long, but a good chunk of it. So I’m going to try to keep my Sundays open as much as possible. And it’s good for me to refresh by just staying home in my jammies all day and relaxing. I knew this, but had forgotten just how good it is recently with wedding planning.
Though today I took my bike out for a ride. It was almost 40 degrees, so I bundled up in a ton of layers, and discovered that I am able to ride comfortably in 40 degree weather. The only hitch was I’ve misplaced my heavy winter gloves, so was stuck with my lightweight summer gloves. That forced me to cut the ride shorter than I would have liked, but my fingers were going numb. So I’ll be paying a visit to my shop this week to order some new winter gloves, as well as a grip guard to block the wind from my hands to provide even more protection. Now that I know it’s possible for me to wear enough layers to be comfortable when it’s 40 degrees, I’ll be able to get more ride time in before spring. This makes me very happy. 🙂
