Caught up with work, at last, and facing a weekend that I don't have to keyboard through unless I tackle my college assignments.
... which I won't.
Cypress Mountain is open, so guess where I'll be?
Anyway - a trip to Value Village was this afternoon's reward.
wardrobe notes: top, Betty Barclay; skinny jeans, Suki Silver Jeans; glass pendant, Mojacar; phone, Nexus 4; attitude, relaxed

A headless chat with Col. Moody.
Of it's not there, how can I tell you what's going on inside it?
How do I know what's going on inside it?
A little hint - it's not empty but it's not cluttered.
The light at the end of the tunnel.
... backing southerly, rain, 40 miles, rising ...

Seems like a lifetime ago, but it also feels just like yesterday.
I don't feel any older; maybe I feel a little wiser; I certainly feel complete.
We've come through some tough choices and done a lot of maturing together, learning to live with each other and enhance each other's existence. Some of it was welcome, and some we'd both rather not have had to face.
We've laughed together. We've ranted together. We've walked out on one another.
We've been told we're too smoochy. We've been described as perfect for each other. We've been asked, why do you stay together?
I've been accused of whining about my husband as I explored what wasn't working well, and told to keep it to myself.
Whatever - I don't see you with the same person you started out with - go figure.
It's been a twenty-year journey into growing up and making something of life together. It hasn't been easy, and it hasn't always been golden.
But I can honestly say, I cannot imagine growing older without this man at my side.
Happy anniversary mr ebb - thanks for sticking around xxx

self portrait Thursday: coming thru? Kicking off my spt routine once more and feeling that some headspace is returning., originally uploaded by ebbandflo_pomomama.
Spurred into activity by Tracey at Fashion Forward 40, I thought I'd better reinstate my narcissistic selfie posts asap.
So - this is me, today. Checking thru notes from a medical conference, prepping the contents for omissions in preparation for turning them into a report.
I prefer to get out during a day's writing.
And a coffee shop is a good place to head to.
Coffee. White noise of conversational hum. Food.
Using Toggl to keep track of time (well) spent.
This is how I freelance. This is how I write.
Fashion notes: sweater, thrift; attitude, feisty; confidence, variable

So - who's brilliant idea was it to entertain the Wee Guy one evening, to keep him occupied while mr ebb and I slogged thru our never-ending to-do lists of 'things that must be written', by sitting him in front of the complete Fast Show playlist on YouTube?
Brilliant, and he nails the accent bang on.

There's been a lot to keep me away from it, especially in the last week. I resigned from one contract and picked up a couple of new projects on another.
Why swap security for uncertainty?
In short, it came down to a matter of fit, finding my passions and not being willing to compromise.
What do you think?
