I have been truly awful on blogging regularly. Life just keeps getting in the way. I’m not even able to carve out much reading time.
But today I did finally take time to organize my poetry. I use Evernote to store all of my poetry. Still trying to figure out a back up system for it because it makes me very nervous that I don’t have it backed up somewhere else. Anyway, I use Evernote to keep all of my poems. But I just use my notepad to create them.
So, I got them all moved from my notepad into Evernote and categorized. I have found that I have lots and lots of poems that are not published on my blog or in my books – and here I was stressing out that I wasn’t writing and wouldn’t have enough for another collection by January. Ha! I should probably publish a collection now of mostly unpublished stuff and I will still have plenty by January.
It feels good to get it organized. I was writing and just pushing it aside and didn’t know what I had put on my blog and what I hadn’t.
It’s been a great Saturday for me. Again, just the normal get errands run, pick up the house and take time to read kind of day. Plus I got the poems organized. And my pseudo brother was in town so he stopped by for a visit. Only thing left to do is go see dad after his dinner. Then more reading – early to bed so I can get up early. Heading to Cincinnati to Trader’s World (it’s a giant flea market) and IKEA (to buy dad a dresser). I’m still fighting with the stupid insurance company that is keeping us from getting dad on Medicaid. But I think we may at least be in the last stages of that – but it’s been a four month ordeal with them. I will end with a picture of the flyest kindergartner (my daughter’s words, not mine). Although he is definitely adorable. Doesn’t every kindergartener go to school dressed like this? LOL
