morning babble / Tuesday 08-31-21
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!
Welcome to – Not Monday.
I ran. #243 of the 5K runs for the year – in a row.
As my daughter showered last night and I stood patiently awaiting my various check points of determining whether or not the 5 year old was cleaning herself, I starting reading the Austin Kleon book – Keep Going. Only into Chapter 2 and I found this nugget, which I already know, but have difficulty following through on. Every paperwork day (Mondays & Fridays), I have an alarm go off at 3:15pm to wrap up my day. It’s AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” song. My son exclaimed why’s that playing? My daughter responded, that’s his alarm to wrap things up but he doesn’t. I didn’t. Don’t get me wrong – I got a lot of needed work for the business done. That was good. What was bad – I didn’t get that early afternoon writing that I was hoping for.
I did write though. Countdown to 15,000 words continues for one more day. I think I’m hovering around 13,000 right now. I’ve got a day ahead of me filled with tapping the keyboard. Wish me luck!
IMPORTANT – Reminder: I’m doing the 5K run for the St. Jude Walk/Run in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 25th. I’ve joined the team – XTU to the Maxx – which is with Charlie Maxx who you can hear middays on 92.5 XTU. To donate, please click here – anything you can do will be greatly appreciated for this great cause. “St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer”

QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“I think I need to keep being creative not to prove anything but because it makes me happy just to do it . . . I think tryin to be creative, keeping busy, has a lot to do with keeping you alive.” – by Willie Nelson via Austin Kleon’s book: Keep Going
