Shake and Bake 42: The Whiz-By Edition

Whoo-boy! Another whiz-by-week.

A wonderful week was had with the fella from the Westlands.  And today is busy busy busy with the cleaning and preparing for more company.

I’ll be brief…

The Quick Chicken (The Doings that help me with the Being):

  • Yoga/Meditation: 0/7
  • Active Fun: 2 lane walks and one strolling day in the big city.
  • Write: Goodo-Goodo on the Scrib… and the NIP spell checked and quick tidied into a readable format…. 
  • Play Music:  0/7


Getting the draft in a shape I’m willing to share….

The Result:


But I do believe I’m OK with this decision.


  • fear and doubt and fear and doubt.
  • much running away into books and movies… distract me! Distract me!
  • finding a smelly mess in the tent …. oooooog for the leaking!

THE good BITS:

  • Walks and talks
  • no talking
  • reading
  • sleeping
  • tasty food shared
  • singing loud
  • solar power
  • roaming about in Timmins at my favourite boutique – VALUE VILLAGE!

AND THIS is The Thing that needs Baking In MOST:

Well… OK… I must note and allow to sink in the observation and wisdom of the fella from the Westlands….

Though a large part of what I’ve been aiming for these last few years is… to stop … WHIPPING myself…. apparently I am still rathaw hard on Pam.


I have an urge to go and … pout about it.

But let me just… acknowledge that this whole dang THING – meaning ME here on this earth in this body doing these things (writing these books, having these relationships, cooking this food) – is a work in progress.

And hey… let’s just all relax this week and enjoy the show.  Yeah that’s it.

Next Week’s Playful CHALLENGE?

Exactly THAT…

Enjoy the show.

As the wonderful Casey (Kerris Dorsey) sings…. in Moneyball …


Let us all enjoy the show!

Thanks for stopping by.

go easy


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.

Comments are cherished here. Discussion is adored. If you’d rather talk in private – drop me a line.
