Everyday Inspiration, Day 6; The Space to Write

Finding the right space to write in Seattle can be a bit challenging. I say it is challenging because it all depends on the the time of year. When it comes to late autumn, most if not all of winter and early spring I tend to write inside especially when it comes to blogging. That means my awesome cat, Billie sits by my side or on my lap when I am writing my blog. Occasionally, I do go to the library to blog. During the not so good weather months or what I call the yucky weather months, I tend to do most of my blogging at home so I can get some inspiration especially from my cat, Billie. Occasionally, I also go to a coffee shop to have a London Fog as I people watch as I write my blog. So, during the yucky weather months the blogging part of my writing is done inside especially since I live in Seattle.

Now when it comes to the nice late spring months as well as most of the summer months I tend to blog outside. I tend to go to both Cowen and Ravenna Parks since they not only connected but feels like you are in the middle of nature. It feels like the middle of nature despite being in a middle of a major city of Seattle. Cowen and Ravenna Parks feel like you are in a small forest which is why it feels like you are in the middle of nature. I personally prefer writing outside in nice weather, weather it is blogging or other types of writing.

As you can tell, my writing is dependent on the weather and sometimes my mood if my mental health symptoms are acting up. Mainly it is weather dependent. I love being inspired by writing in different places.

Best Part of Waking Up is Billie in My Lap as I Read

Good Morning and Happy Saturday, World!!! I slept in this morning which was awesome since I woke up in the middle of the night. It took me about two hours to get back to sleep but on the good note I was able to get back to sleep as well as sleep in.

In fact the best part of this morning was not the sleeping in part part; it was the Billie cuddling up in my lap as I finally chose a holiday book to read. In fact it is a Christmas book I am going to start reading after I am done posting this particular blog post. The book I will be reading is ” Sleigh Bells Riding” by RaeAnne Thayne. I’m not exactly sure what the book is about except it is set during Christmas time. It is going to be one of those days I stay in and read as well as hang out with my wonderful cat, Billie.

The weather is the typical Seattle weather. The ground is wet gut at least it is not raining. Do it’s a damp cold day in Seattle. I might even work on my jigsaw puzzle to today which is in the holiday spirit.

i co not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Looking Forward to Laid Back Weekend

Happy Friday, World!!! It is the day after Thanksgiving which most American call “Black Friday” due to the major sales retailers have for holidays shoppers seeking the perfect gift. Anyway, I have never liked “Black Friday” nor understand why you would want to stand in line hours before the butt crack of dawn.

On that note, I worked this more and am now off and home enjoying the company of my lovely cat, Billie. This is the time of year I pull out my winter and/or holiday jigsaw puzzles and start doing one or two of them. I also pull out a holiday book to read. I already started on one of my holiday jigsaw puzzles. I am not exactly sure what holiday book I will read. I am going to be coloring a holiday poster.

The weather in Seattle today sucks but it is the “normal” Seattle weather. Even though I currently don’t have a holiday book to read, I do have book that I am reading. So, I think I will make some hot tea and curl up in a blanket or two with my cat Billie on my lap as I read.

In fact I think this weekend is going to be a curl up and read type of weekend. Or at least stay in my pajama’s and do puzzles. I love this type of weather sometimes because it gives me an excuse to read, do puzzles, do art and just hang out in my pajama’s with my cat Billie.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciative from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Happy Thanksgiving from Seattle

Happy Thanksgiving, World!!! This is going to be a short post but just wanted to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. Yes, I know not every place around celebrates Thanksgiving. Today’s weather for Thanksgiving especially for Seattle was and still is absolutely beautiful and clear. You can even see Mount Rainier.

I started off Thanksgiving this morning at work. I did a four hour shift and loved it. I am beyond grateful to help young adults who do not have a home to go to. I then came home quickly, said hi to my cat Billie and grabbed a load of laundry to due on my grandpa’s while having Thanksgiving dinner. It was nice a holiday dinner without in arguing. I am also grateful for time with family. Now I am home blogging as my cat Billie purrs in my lap. It has been a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I do not have much more to say in this blog. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World

It’s the Tuesday Before Thanksgiving

Good Afternoon, World!!! It is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving here in the United States. Not much going on for me today as it is my day off from my very part time job which I am grateful for. I did go to the pharmacy to pick up meds and later on this afternoon I will be volunteering at PAWS Cat City. On that note the weather here is Seattle is finally back to being normal which is rain. It has been the driest November on record here in Seattle if I heard correctly. November is usually the wettest month of the year.

It being Thanksgiving week I don’t have much planned. Like I mentioned I am volunteering later this afternoon. I am also going to be working Wednesday, Thursday (Thanksgiving) and Friday. I am excited to be working even if it only twelve hours a week. I work three days a week which are four hour shifts each day in the morning. I am really excited that I am working on Thanksgiving as it gives me great joy to help the folks I serve on such a hard for them as well as many others. Not only do I get to work on Thanksgiving, I will be having dinner with my dad, grandpa and two uncles.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Things Not Exactly Going My Way but I’m Okay With It

Let’s just start with the new job. I wasn’t exactly fired but I didn’t exactly quit. We (my supervisor and I) agreed the job wasn’t a good fit for me and I agree. Plus the commute sucked shit. Plus I missed spending time with my kitty cat, Billie Dean.

I spent a lot of time away from him at the new job I no longer have. I love my Billie and I know he loves me. He is a very sweet cat and I am sure he is grateful that the Seattle weather has cooled down a lot. Billie had expensive dental work done and will go back for a follow up with the vet a a couple of weeks.

I plan on going to the social security office next week to see if I can get back on it. As much as I wish I was working, maybe I need a break to take care of my disability.

On top of other issues I am having land phone line and internet issues which suck shit. I know a lot of small crap is going on and I am doing okay with it.

I don’t have much to say expect thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things. I hope you all have a great weekend. Peace Out, World!!!

Developing Your Eye; Day 7 Solitude

A Foggy Snowy 2021 Christmas Day in Olympia, Washington

Blast to the past of Christmas of 2021. I took this this picture from my hotel room on Christmas morning of 2021 before I bundled myself up and walked around Capitol Lake twice. In fact it was mainly a solitude walk as only saw two other walkers when on a typical non holiday there are more walkers. I enjoyed the solitude and enjoyed my Christmas walk before spending it with family.

I Think I Might Like the Job but Could it Be the Job that is Best for Me

Hello, World!!! After three days of training at my new job has worn me the fuck out with all the training the last three days. I am thinking I’m going to like the new job but worry it could not be best for me. I really hope it is a good fit for me. I just don’t like the commute on public transportation part of work. I think that which ever direction this new job is to me is what I need to do at the moment. I have the day off but will still be looking work stuff all newbies need to look at.

On that note I plan on doing a math workbook to help me better at math and understand math terms better. It will give me an education in math that I’ve need since leaving California and getting a shitty education in the Bellevue School District.

On another note I will be doing two workbooks tomorrow. One on mindfulness and the other on recovery. Recovery with mental health workbooks. This is to help me become a better me to help other be their better selves.

I don’t have anything else to say. I just want to say thanks for reading my blog.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 9: Writing & Not Writing

Hello, World!!! To write or not to write is very dependent on the day as was as the time and what is going on in my life at the moment. For example there are times I like to go out to eat and take my laptop with me to writer. I sadly was not able to do that when we had the not so lovely pandemic of Covid-19 which is sadly still around. I do some of my best writing when I eat in a restaurant and Covid-19 prevent me from doing that but that’s okay as I found other ways to write or not to write.

When I comes to blogging I either write in my bedroom or my recliner if my cat Billie doesn’t want to sit on my lap. I also like to blog out doors as it can give me similar inspiration like blogging at a restaurant does.

As far as not writing, sometimes my cat can get in the way but I am more than okay with that. Other reasons for not writing is due to work or my mental health is acting up. As far as blogging outside it is all dependent on the weather out side. Seattle is known to have gloomy weather days which sucks but I’ve learned to deal with it.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 6: A Place to Write

It’s hard to choose where to write as weather in Seattle can be not very predictable. Usually in the summer on a nice day I write outside. When It iis autumn and spring it alll depends if the weather is stormy outside then I write in the living room. As far as the winter goes its too cold and raining so I writing inside my living room. That’s all I have to say.
