Things I Love Thursday: Green Nails

Things I Love Thursday

    I love having my nails some pretty color and this week I bought up one of Revlon's scented polishes.  Balsam Fir has a dark green color and smells like a Christmas tree.

    This week I am hustling on my writing for Camp NaNoWriMo.  It is tough at times, but other times it is so fulfilling.  I am taking a break to write down my gratitude list for the week.  So here we go.

Let's Celebrate Muse Day


    Every year on the fifteenth of August I celebrate.  What do I celebrate?  The muse, the genius, that which inspires me.

    For years I had wanted to set aside a day to celebrate the muse.  And for some reason I always gravitated to the same date.  So one year I just decided to do it.

    Often times I would ask other artist and writer friends if they would like to celebrate with me.  This year I am inviting everyone to celebrate what inspires them.

Things I Love Thursday: I Moved The Dome Of The Harlan J. Smith Telescope


       Taking a vacation can be a great way to open yourself up to new opportunities and the unexpected.  I took some vacation last week and I got to do some great things.  Some of which will be added to this weeks TiLT post.  One of the things I did that I was super excited about was visit the McDonald Observatory.  While on the tour we got to see two of the telescopes up close.  I got to move the dome on the 107 inch telescope.  It was awesome!

    There were several things we did on that trip.  And several more great things that I have loved from this week.

Writing Exercise: About Myself As A Writier

    When I was a teen I used to sit places and write poetry and dream up tales to tell.  I loved to play with words.  I am not sure at what age I started to do this.  I know I didn't start to love reading until I was older than most my friends were when they started to love reading.  The key for me was that I started to love reading when I was finally allowed to read for myself and not forced to read things.  I started to love reading when I didn't have to fill out a report or get up in front of class.  I do not know when I started to make my own stories.  It was likely long before I started to love reading.

Writing and Details

Image from CampNaNoWriMo.org

    I have been trying to focus on my writing for NaNoWriMo.  I have had to make some trips out on errands though.  Some for research for my novel.  One of these trips took me to the local library.  It started to sprinkle.  It was then I noticed the sound that the rain drops made on the leaves of a tree.  A soft plip noise.  I had been so caught up in things that I didn't seem to have been paying attention to these little details in life.  I decided that I could do a scene of it rain in my story soon.  I also made an effort to be more attentive of the little details in life.  I have notice several things.  I have also been inspired by some of the silly things I have done this week.

Things I Love Thursday: Vanilla Bean Is The Best Flavor Of Vanilla


    It has been an interesting week and has certainly had it's ups and downs.  I am grateful for my weekly gratitude list which is always a place I can come to get a great mood boost and remind me about so many of the good things.  I first started doing gratitude lists after seeing Gala Darling's Things I Love Thursday posts for so long.  It is a super simple way to make your-self happier and more positive.  Have you tried adding a gratitude list to the things you do on a weekly basis.  Try it for a couple months and see if it changes how you look at the world.
