Perfectly Positive Monday #6

In the spirit of positivity, I will try (and sometimes fail) to post something positive and true on Mondays. Because Monday is the day you need positivity the most. 

The last two weeks have been gorgeous! So there is that. I don't care that it's cold right now and it's supposed to snow. I'm clinging to the memory of how beautiful it was and will be.

What I'm most excited to tell you about was our mini-vacation to see a show in Saginaw. When my hubs and I met we found we shared two fairly obscure loves:

Alton Brown and The Red Green Show.

Alton was the host of many Food Network shows. He's funny and smart and teaches you the basics of cooking. Most people compare him to Bill Nye the Science Guy. Love him. The Red Green Show was a Canadian cable access show that came to PBS. I'll let Wikipedia describe it:

The Red Green Show is essentially a cross between a sitcom and a sketch comedy series, and is a parody of home improvement, do-it-yourself, fishing, and other outdoors shows (particularly The Red Fisher Show).

It was hilarious and I never met another person who watched it until my husband. So a friend got us tickets to see the actor who played Red Green on his How to Fix Everything Tour. We made day of it since it was two weeks before our wedding anniversary and stayed the night at a Ramada Inn that was pretty nice considering it was in the ghetto. It was next to a Family Dollar if that tells you anything. But we had a jacuzzi tub and that was awesome. Of course like every time we stay at a hotel, hubs got tired and went to sleep and Isoaked in the jacuzzi by my onesie. He's not a night owl. Whatevs, I put on my Pandora station of saddish-music and soaked and thought about my novel. It was so relaxing. I actually got up early the next day and got some writing done. Whee!

Novel is a bit stuck but mostly because I've been editing some previous stuff to make sense of whats to come. Still fighting my characters and their mean case of the sluts. It's a complicated disease. In an effort to keep me writing, I attended the Rally of Writers last weekend. Which is a writing conference. It was great. However, I missed the first session as I was running late. So I was sulking and irritable and not in the moment at all. They had a table full of tea, coffee and goodies so while I stewed, I grabbed a chocolate chunk cookie and some tea. Sometimes the universe delivers aridiculously happy moment and that was one of them as the tea ended up being the most delicious I've ever had (and the cookie was pretty good too). I kept the wrapper so I could remember the name and I absolutely did NOT pocket an extra tea bag for later. Ahem. Moving on. I met Beverly Jenkins at the conference. She was so funny and cool. I wanna be like her when I grow up (which should happen any day now).

How about you? Any challenges or successes to share with me?

Leave comments. I eat them up like chocolate chunk cookies and Constant Companion tea.
