My favorite sound here lately is our grandfather clock that we recently installed. We have had it for about 2 years sitting in my son’s closet. Finally the other day I asked my father in law to help my husband install it.
The clock was actually my father in laws parent’s, it was in their home for a long time. They had it till they were ready to go to a retirement home about a year before they passed away. I hesitated to put it up thinking the chime would drive me nuts but I felt bad not hanging it up as it is pretty. Also my husband’s parents gave it to him to keep it in the family.
Now I am so glad I decided to hang it up, because I love the sound it makes. It is actually very soothing to hear it go off every 15 minutes and on the hour. I don’t even hear it at night which I thought would be a big problem.
Do you have a favorite sound?
Our extra fridge that we keep in the garage broke. It is in excellent condition and we used it all the time to store extra items we found on sale or rebates. It has been broken since November and I miss it so much. Our indoor fridge is often over flowing with items that are cramped and packed in just so by my husband, who I have to say is the master of using space well. To fix our outdoor fridge it would be like $90.00 to purchase a new one that is comparable would cost us $440.00.
Hmmm I think I will fix it and keep using my fridge, plus it used to belong to my husbands grandparents and is only a few years old.
I get flustered when I have a good idea, but when I sit down to write it has gone bye bye. Lately I have taken up a few habits to keep me from letting those good idea slip away.
1- I use the notes apps on my i Phone to jot down notes on the fly, no matter where I am at or what I am doing.
2- I also have a little notebook in my purse with a small pen attached to it to write down quick small notes. This way I can jog my memory on topics I am wanting to write about.
3- At night I have a journal next to my bed that I use to write down ideas before bed. Also if I dream of anything that I want to write about I can turn on the light jot down the note and go back to bed.
These new habits are working great for me so far and I am sure I will develop other good habits as time passes. Making my writing life so much more about the writing than the sitting there trying to remember that good idea I had.
Do you have any good methods of remembering your good ideas so they don’t slip away? Share them in your comments below and inspire others.
It’s human nature not wanting to admit you are wrong, right . I can handle the truth depending on if I am right or wrong. This is according to my husband. He says I can’t handle the truth and that it takes me a while to think about the situation before I can handle the truth. I guess from an outsider looking in that is about right. I want some cheese with my whine darn it, I think I have earned my pouting right. sigh
Depending on the situation, I may deny the truth even when it is right in my face. But I do have to admit the truth even if it hurts is good accountability to have thrown at me.
So the response is no I can’t handle the truth, darn it. I will pout and stomp but the truth is the truth and all the pouting in the world won’t change it. It just take me sometime to swallow the pill, and yes I will need a little bit of water to gulp the truth down.
How about you Can You Handle the Truth?
