Final Word Count: July 13, 2011- 2,017 (4 pages); 1 journal page

What’s going on this week? I’ve been irritated and cantankerous to varying degrees so far and certainly not as easy going as I usually am. I hate feeling this way and I’m blaming the heat. It’s certainly not been as hot here in Halifax as in most other places but it’s more than hot enough for me. I can’t wait for the fall. Give me cold and damp over hot and humid any day (until it’s been days of the same then I’ll want the heat but still not the humidity- ARGH).

I’ve finally gotten back into my preferred word count range and that makes me happy. Perhaps my slacking off has made me disgruntled right now and getting back into my groove will improve my mood. I’ve also been neglecting Yesterday’s walkies. She loves sunbathing with my roommate in the backyard but there’s something so sublime about going out for a walk with her. I never used to like walking dogs but with her it’s one of my favourite things to do. In the summer if I see an ice cream truck we’ll stop and share an ice cream (yes, I’m one of those people). It’s so wonderful to get out and watch her enjoy reading her newspapers and making new friends.

Over the past year or so I’ve really become aware of life and my interaction with the cosmos. Right now I’m really fighting unexpected change of plans, surprises and other peoples’ quirks. It makes it very easy to want to hibernate. Perhaps I need to get back to yoga for some re-balancing. At least I know the end of the week holds 2 days of dancing so I’m looking forward to some good old fashioned stress relief in the form of socializing.

It’s easy to get caught up in how you wanted your week to be but everything really does happen for a reason and it’s amazing how if you go with it, things some how manage to fit. It’s tough to remember. As long as I get my writing in, I things will be good. I have a feeling I need to get to bed earlier than I have been so far. It’s amazing what a good nights sleep will do for you.
