Running with a Cloud

6 Apr

Yesterday’s run was beautiful. My neighbor is training for a half marathon so, I join her on her runs. We hit the Montour Trail and there we were met by one lone cloud in the sky, perfectly shaped and, just amazing.



Our six mile run was good and, more clouds joined that one. Of course, it’s Pittsburgh and rarely is there a cloudless day! That’s ok, the clouds are beautiful.

The Sun is Out

30 Mar

I woke up this morning listening to the birds sing.  I sat up in my bed thinking maybe, JUST maybe the sun is shining. Sure enough it is!!! I took a picture to capture this monumental moment.


Not a cloud in the sky. Can there really be an entire sunny day in Pittsburgh? Hmmm… I’ll let you know that after the day is done because, I have yet to see that happen. I will not dwell on that though. I will focus on the sun right now, it is shining!  Every curtain, blind and window covering in my house has been opened to let it in. I’m back to my cat status, chasing the sun-rays in the house and snuggling in the warm embrace of the ray. I better enjoy it now because I hear it is going to snow on Thursday :/

Hope it is sunny wherever you are. If so let me know!

Procrastinate…Not Me!

9 Oct

What do you do when you are overwhelmed? I mean so overwhelmed you don’t know which way is up?  This is where I am right now.

When I get like this I escape to the couch, with a snack, a laptop and a nap. Escaping is fun. Having fun activities makes me happy. Happy is my cup of tea. A good cup of tea is a good way to escape too; that’s fun. However, my fun often comes at the expense of me doing what I am “suppose” to do.

I am coming out of the closet…

I am a procrastinator.

Many people don’t know this about me; I am the Mom, the SAHM, the one always on top of things…NOT ALWAYS! Those close to me (hi hubby) often find me frustrating. You see, I am pretty laid back (at times & with certain things) and that translates into procrastination  Now, I almost NEVER do so in a time crunch or when others are relying on me. But, give me some time and I will and do the “P” word.

SO, as I sit here typing my blog. I am aware of all the things I HAVE to do to prepare for my move to Pittsburgh, PA. BUT, guess what? I have not put off writing my blog!! I am NOT procrastinating now! I am also having a cup of tea! FUN AND NOT PROCRASTINATING! I am on it (did I mention ALL of the other stuff I have to do, pack, make calls, clean attic…never mind).

You see if you procrastinate in one area, you are not in another (good rationale), even if it is in a fun area. It all balances out!

So, what areas are you NOT procrastinating in?
