Moon in Cancer

I have found myself wanting to write here all week long, but unsure of what to post. In the Project Downsize area, I took a ton of before-and-after pics of my bathroom decluttering and reorg, and I got a lot done in my closet too. But I ended up not wanting to write about that. I also thought I’d maybe do one of those this-is-what-I’m-packing posts for my trip to Portland this weekend, but the week has gotten away from me and I haven’t even gotten my suitcase out.

It’s been a very happy week. Even two days of some of the worst traffic ever (like it took 40 minutes just to get out of my office complex on Tuesday – then another 40 minutes home!!!) couldn’t bring me down. I don’t know if I’m still riding on that half-marathon high, or I have a good feeling about a job lead, or being scared about my flight is making me appreciative of how sweet my little life it, but whatever it is, I’ll take it. I have been full of joy. I saw that last night, the moon was in Cancer, so maybe it was that? Or maybe, it’s that mixed case of French wine I bought yesterday 😉

Anyway, this week has been lovely and flown by. I am looking forward to a run this morning, and drinks out tonight with Jack and maybe some friends. If the rain holds off, tomorrow we’ll hike by the river before I have to leave for the airport. There is a bottle of sparkling rosé in the fridge to take the edge off before my travels.

I’m still trying to decide the direction for this space. “Lifestyle blog” sorta seems like a cop-out. I don’t run seriously enough to have this just be about that. I’m not especially creative or productive or handy or inspiring. I do like sharing my progress on my goals for the year, but that’s not enough content. I also like telling you about new restaurants and bars we’re trying, but that’s usually just worth a couple of posts a month. I did update my tagline, which I feel sort of gives me some direction. All things in moderation! But for now, I’ll keep being random, and keep searching for the best plan.

What interests you in a blog? What content are you hoping to find? Do you enjoy the random mullings of a stranger?

Please keep your fingers crossed for my safe travels. Hopefully I’ll be writing to you next from the PNW.
