I overslept this morning. Not enough to be late, just enough to rush through my early morning. When this happens, I end up sacrificing important things I do each morning. I planned on adding some simple body weight strength exercises in my morning routine. That is a plan that is happening. It didn't happen this morning, but it's happening. It'll be fun and easy to do. One of those, why didn't I start doing this sooner? ...type things.
There's always the potential for instability all day when a day starts rushed. Fortunately, I was determined this would be a great day. I made it great. I had a good show, I accomplished some things at work, I engaged support and I made a couple of really important phone calls. I also took extra care in preparing great food. I found a less than half price deal on fresh salmon, I resisted the coffee at the store (not too impressive--I did have coffee at home, tonight), and I enjoyed a great treadmill workout at the gym. I came home, prepared an outstanding dinner and enjoyed a nice call with a support buddy.
Now, I'm looking through my photo collection (over 1,700) and selecting some for a collection of before & now pictures.
Just for fun...
That was fun! Okay-- I plan on having a productive and enjoyable weekend with plenty of rest and some pure joy built in each day. I get to sleep in tomorrow morning before a 1-4pm location broadcast, then I'm traveling to the LOL Comedy Club in Stillwater to see the show and perform a couple of short ten minute guest sets in the 7pm and 9:30pm shows.
This is likely one of my earliest posting times on a Friday night in more than a year.
Oh-- one more thing... I was sitting at my desk this evening, waiting for an expected support call when suddenly I heard singing. It sounded amazing. I quickly made my way to the door, opening it up to the most wonderful thing. Christmas Carolers--right downstairs! They immediately looked up, smiled and continued singing their beautiful song. Then--my phone rang... I couldn't shut the door on them!!! So I whispered into the phone... "I'll call you back in a few minutes, carolers are outside." I smiled at the carolers as they performed and they smiled back.
Is it normal to get slightly emotional when a large group of people are singing so beautifully while looking at you? I couldn't help it. I didn't start crying, but I had some lip tremble happening. I've never experienced this before...carolers, not the lip tremble thing.
Do I sing along? Or do I just enjoy and smile? Do I tip them or give them food? Invite them in for dark roast with half and half? These are questions that ran through my mind. What a blessing. After two encores, they made their way to another neighborhood to make someone else's day... simply beautiful.
