Last Day of Full Moon
Partly cloudy and warm
Busy weekend, but good. Got a lot of processing done on Friday and Saturday. I’m almost caught up from the vacation. Also did a lot of PR work, both for the library and for the wine event.
All the same, I was happy to get home after work on Saturday afternoon, put up my feet, have a martini and read on the deck!
I read GIRL WAITS WITH GUN, which was interesting and unusual. It feels like the first book in a series, so I’m interested to see where it goes.
I also read another book, by a well-regarded author. It’s paranormal romance, and supposed to be one of those “eternal love/true love” stories — only, to me, it came across as kind of stalky and disturbing. It gave lip service to the woman’s independence, but she was still completely in the man’s control. Turned me off that author completely.
Keeping up with the yoga practice and deepening the meditation practice. I’m not doing as much yoga as I did at Kripalu, but I’m trying not to backslide.
Finished watching Season Three of SIX FEET UNDER — mixed feelings about it, although I think the cast is great.
Watched AGENT CARTER — really liked Hayley Atwell and some of the rest of the cast. They made even the more ludicrous bits of it work. Looking forward to Season 2.
I’m in a stretch where I don’t have any days off now, so I’m trying to make the most of whatever hours off I get.
Yesterday, I did a lot of work on the upcoming book launch for my friend’s book this week, and read a little bit.
The Full Lunar Eclipse last night was magnificent. What an odd sensation, being cut off from the moon. It felt really odd — pinpricks all over the place, and then nothing. Disturbing. I found myself reaching down towards earth energy a lot more, to stay rooted, since I was cut off from the lunar energy I tend to gravitate towards first!
But it was beautiful, watching the whole thing, and I felt lucky to experience it.
I had an excellent writing session this morning, which was comforting.
Worked flat out all morning, on the wine event, on tonight’s NYU Meet-n-Greet, preparing a letter of support for the Bourne Library filed with the town for Thursday’s meeting, and filing remarks for a state senate hearing tomorrow on the rate hikes in homeowner’s insurance (obviously, I’m against them — if cost-of-living raises are 3% for a regular person and rate hikes are 9% while the CEO’s is 27% — there is no way that math works).
Also got some mowing and yard work done. A lot to do to prep the yard for winter!
Getting read for tonight. Tomorrow will be busy, between errands, working on the wine event,and more work on the book launch.
