I have a confession. I’m feeling a little burned out with reading books for reviews and posting two a week. There’s a lot going on these days in my life – including our youngest daughter’s upcoming wedding in about two weeks! Yes, about 16 months ago she met the love of her life and it was an instant connection. They were engaged five months after that, and soon … my “baby” will be a married woman! I’ll share some about it here when that exciting weekend is over.
Alas, I’m not even getting to my own writing, and I have yet to come up with a new story draft for this month of 12×12. This week at home I’m trying to get refreshed and have not pushed myself to keep up with computer stuff. Part of that includes that I’ve started doing Zumba. (Dance exercise) I am not nearly active enough anymore, usually sitting too much at the computer. Apparently the saying now is “sitting is the new cigarette.” Yikes! Means that it’s unhealthy to sit too much. And we know it is. Anyway, Zumba is a fun and challenging workout, my body is complaining at doing what it’s no longer used to doing and I’m enjoying it anyway despite the ouches.
A few days ago my husband and I got away for a day to visit his sister and brother-in-law in their new house in the port town of Lunenburg, N.S. Wow! Gorgeous, and with a close view of the water and the tall ships anchored there for a few days on their sail to different ports. We took the short walk around town and my sister-in-law and I went into a little dress shop. Lo! and behold! I found a dress to wear to my daughter’s wedding! What a load off my mind that was. The following day I bought shoes to go with it, usually quite an ordeal but this time it was easy and painless. I’ll be able to show up at my daughter’s wedding after all. 🙂
Now, I have a quiz for you to do. As you read in my subject line, it’s to find out what percent royal you are. 😉 Just follow THIS LINK to do the quiz. Afterward I hope you will come back here to comment so I can know your quiz results. Here’s mine, silly but fun:
100% You must be a long lost member of the royal family! Everyone bow down because we found the real Queen—and long may you reign! Now all you have to do is find your happily ever after…by reading ROMANCING THE THRONE!
I haven’t read Romancing the Throne. Have you? If so, should I? Did you like it?
SO if I’m 100% royal … where is my entourage? including someone to do the housework so I can write, and I’d like a chauffeur, please. 🙂 (laughing but .. wouldn’t it be nice…)
What are you doing this season? And … what percent royal are you?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
I got 100% Royal too. Helps I read a lot of British books.
We learn a lot through reading. Now you are royal! 🙂
I am 100% royal too. Maybe we are cousins?? 🙂 I have been doing Jazzercise (dance/stretch/strength) for almost 12 years and prefer it to Zumba because of the format and chance to learn strength training.
Maybe we are, Danielle! 🙂
I think I’ll stick with Zumba awhile, and maybe look into Jazzercise later. It sounds interesting. Do they have dvd’s so you can do it at home on your own schedule?
