Daily Prompt–On The Edge

We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ACTIVITY.

I have several things I do to keep an even keel. The first is walking my dogs in the morning. The morning doesn’t start unless I walk Ernie for 15 minutes and then Ralphy for 15 minutes. I get my 30 minutes of walking exercise in and they get a little exercise, too.

Then I answer my e-mail and send out my Postcrossing postcards. I belong to a postcard club and I see how many postcards I should be sending out and to whom, and if I have received any the day before in the mail, I register them.

Then I blog. I usually answer the daily prompt after I have read the blogs of the bloggers I follow. Then I often blog about a book I have finished reading for my Book Challenge Update.

Then I eat my breakfast. I never miss my breakfast of a banana and apricots. They are an important source of potassium and I have a problem keeping potassium in my system so I always eat these fruits.

Now I’m set for a day of reading and crocheting and knitting, if I don’t have to be out tutoring or going out on a CASA case. I can spend the entire day reading, broken up by some crocheting or knitting. I read several books at once. I read rather fast. I live to read.

And that’s how I keep myself on an even keel. Even if I have to go out, I make sure to stay as close as possible to my routine. It helps to steady me.

Am I nuts? Possibly. But this is the way I live. You asked. I answered. Here’s the story.


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. I laughed at your last line. You’re just charming (and how do you keep all those books straight if you read multiple ones at once! amazing)

    You’re far from crazy, my lovely friend.
