Shake and Bake 14: A Very Quick Chicken

Take it in Stride - the road.

Wherein Pam pops on for a quick chicken/check in and to say…

Halloo Hallay happy folk!

Being still a TAD off “schedule” this week….
And being… in town today helping with some un-decorating…
I hereby declare this a Super Quick Chicken.
But I did want to say “hello” and note how the week went… so here we go…

In homage to Havi’s Friday Chickens over on the The Fluent Self — This is the place I review my week – in an attempt to track some things – like progress on my novel and… living intentionally. I shake out my week and lay it out. Let the hard burn off and the good sink in. Call it an experiment in paying attention. Feel free to join in.

To shake things up – let us use a different form today.
Let me just say…

I have had a lovely week.
New Years Eve was spent by the fire with movies and tasty food with my lovely Raggedy Man.
New Years Day was spent in the glorious out doors and in our tune filled kitchen. Some dancing in our “sock feet” and some calls to and fro with friends far far away.

The Book from Goose (Mostly Happy)

I am working my way through last year’s SCRIBBLE books. It is taking me far longer than I thought it would – about 3 hours per month. I will begin reading through APRIL tomorrow.

I am reading through as a sort of … review of the year.
Making some notes.
Finding some treasures that were meant for the NIP and hadn’t made it in yet.
And other gems.

And… I’ve been thinking about how to proceed with this here blogthing. I’ve gotten a few suggestions…

Some possibilities:

  • Putting up some posts from a private journal I began last year called “Gimme Shelter: Two Writers in a Shakey Shack” It was meant to be a way for me to track… our life here. The work we do on the camp (cabin), and how the writing is going.
  • Responses to books I’m reading – not really REVIEWS, but more like… what the reading … leads me to.
  • An “Ask Pam” section – where I answer questions from readers and fellow scribblers. And a the first suggestions are… What exactly is THE SCRIB and how and why do you do it?

Any other suggestions for future posts are welcome…
Drop me a line if you have any ideas.

All I really know is that I would like to create a place where we can talk (if you’d like to), where you might find a giggle or at least something to make you smile, and perhaps some solace when the world gets spinning too fast.

I’m still thinking… reviewing… plotting…
Who knows what could happen here.

I do hope to DOODLE more.
I know that.


A doodle-filled blog of ramblings… that’s not so horrid to imagine.

OK me lovlies… I must fly.
It’s almost time to take down the tree.
But before I go…

Gotta have this bit…

The Doings that help me with the Being (Mustn’t lose these)
Work on NIP: Some good shifts – but not every day.
Walks: Took the form of some snow shoeing and SHOVELLING off the rink – 4 times. Still no skating though 😉
Guitar: Oh Pree… say you still love me. Some chord practice but not much fun playing.
Yoga/Meditation: Mmmmmm mat love continues.


Is to continue with my review of the SCRIB 2012 and see what I learn.
To get back on track with the ole sched-doolie.

Sending wishes for a year filled with grace and growth and giggles

to you all

Thanks for stopping by.
go easy -p
