The End of — a ST4S/ROW80 post

As a break from my normally verbose Some Thing 4 Sunday, please enjoy a picture from last October I rediscovered today while cleaning my PC.

Yes, the skies really were that intense.  It was an amazing evening.

After a Storm–October 7. 2013

ROW80 Check-in

Not tons of progress since Wednesday…  Life happened.  I was sick Friday; Saturday, my parents decided to make a “surprise the Boodle” trip down to visit us, and last night, I discovered that the strange beeping of the fire alarm that oddly only started around 1am was probably a Carbon Monoxide warning… not a dying battery.

Still, I made some progress:

  • write every day; at the minimum, do 5 sentences  I missed one day
  • finish a complete (rough) draft of Courting the Swan Song  I looked at the draft a few times and reread some sections
  • make twice weekly blog posts (WIPpet Wednesdays and Some Thing 4 Sundays) on a consistent schedule check
  • maintain active sponsor participation I still need to write my sponsor post (see above about surprise company); all else on track
  • energize myself with more physical activity a full workout on Thursday, laid on the couch all Friday, moved furniture yesterday
  • reclaim my writing space  paid bills gathered on my desk
  • go through some piece of my electronic home (desktop, laptop, server space, Dropbox, etc.) started sorting three years of RAW photos
  • laugh more, hug my family more, share myself with friends more…  the hugs doth flow fast and profuse at our house, and there was visiting, though not planned

Enjoy your Sunday evening, whatever you have planned for it.

    Hey Eden, if you have a CO issue at your house, don’t mess around with it, okay? Have it checked out immediately. I nearly lost a very dear friend to CO poisoning last year. Her husband didn’t recover. It kills before you know it. It’s possible you feeling sick Friday and the CO detector sounding are related.

    I think most local fire departments have CO equipment. Yours may be able to determine if you have an issue. Act on it. Today. Okay?

    • No problem about the PSA, Joe. It’s an important issue.

      On the other hand, I’m very aware of the dangers of CO poisoning, both on a personal level and an academic one. While less painful than a friend’s death, I lost a pet to CO poisoning as a child when our old furnace (remember those big basement octopods they used to make) stopped firing correctly.

      As for now, my husband’s brother is wonderful at furnace and boiler repair. This time it was a few rusty pipes going from the boiler to the furnace. All fixed. And no alarms anymore. 😀
