Yes! Time is of the essence.

Posted on Updated on

I’m usually an instant coffee kinda gal. Preferring a quick fix over a slow brew. But for some reason, I have bypassed the microwave this a.m and I’ve rather jovially decided to use the machine instead. It’s not one of those hi-tech, shiny, stainless steel, state of the art, 3,000+ button, digital, manual having, remote control operated contraptions that are on the market and in some of your homes! Compared to all the rage in coffee makers, I’d have to say this one here is an antique, a relic, a dinosaur… Rwar! Still as I shuffle through the pile of papers that is today’s ‘To Do List’… I smile! The rich, hearty, tantalizing aroma has already awakened more than 1/2 my senses, proving the choice to brew was a good one. The smell wafting through the house is evident that some things are well worth the wait. Yes! Time is of the essence, but we each must remember to slow down long enough to ‘Stop and brew the coffee’.

Ways to kill time to keep from killing myself.

Posted on Updated on

Did the title of this post put you in a somber mood? Well fret not. I have no intent to leave this Earthly realm anytime soon. My eldest child and only son has sickle cell disease. We discovered this illness when he was just 3 years old. Why so late and not at birth? I’ll save that for another post. ‘Tre’ had been complaining of chest pains off and on for several hours. As the pain progressed and his description of how he felt grew pretty frightening, I knew it was time to take home care to another level. Mere minutes had passed when my nemesis boredom came creeping in. Sitting. Waiting. Watching. Every sense heightened. Hospital sights and sounds. Foot tapping. Thumb twiddling. Bored outta my mind. If a cure didn’t present itself soon, at least I was in the ER! Death by boredom. Clean up on aisle 3. If you should find yourself in my recent predicament, bored out of your mind and dieing for a way to kill time to keep from killing yourself as you WAIT in the ER…

  • Read
  • Write
  • Count the tiles on the ceiling of your cell, er um uh, waiting room
  • Count the tiles on the floor of said room
  • Meditate
  • Nap
  • Pray
  • Play the drums on the nearest counter with a pair of tongue depressors
  • Update your status at Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn…
  • Check and respond to emails
  • Search engine look up something random like ‘onomatopoeia

time

I’d love a few suggestions. What do you do to pass the time? By the way, ‘Tre’ is just fine. He and I both made it out alive. Unscathed from our latest venture into boredom at the ER!

I’m a Scorpio. Through & through!

Posted on Updated on

For me. Trusting another does not come easy. It’s like using a dull scalpel to divide my body and slowly bit by bit scooping away the other elements of me until the very core of my being…. My soul is revealed. Yes! It is a process and it is that painful. As a result, not only is it painfully difficult for me to trust, but I can be super secretive at times. Call it a character flaw or a smart precaution. My inner circle has a hidden chamber. Not many dwell there.

What can I say? I’m a SCORPIO… Through & through!

Dear Universe, may I have 1 more hour please?

Posted on Updated on

So I’m beyond convinced. Blogging is hard work. The decision to do so requires not only time, but a sincere dedication to follow through and actually do it!

Dear Universe, may I have 1 more hour please?

Just 60 lil ol minutes extra every day. I’m almost certain that will do the trick. I always seem to run out of time, not have enough, or remember when it’s too late. So i reiterate…

Dear Universe, may I have 1 more hour please?

I’m gonna do my best to commit and dedicate what moments I can to the update of this blog. I had a hard time coming up with a title. I didn’t want a specific topic, subject, audience. My moods are pretty random and I tend to rant and rave alot about pretty much a little of everything. So in the spirit of keeping it eccentric, I chose simplicity. This is the part where I ramble. Lol. I hope that you will follow and share the blog. Love Peace and FreedomInk. Read lots of books. Build your home libraries. Make love and not war. Use your inside voice outside and your outside voice inside. Go crazy. Walk in the rain. Live a little or a lot. Have fun and all dat jazz. Later…. Kat =)
