Homer's Travels: A Good Week

A Good Week

This last week was a pretty good week for me.  Nothing spectacular, mind you, but there were a few ups.

The first was the receipt of my copy of the March/April 2014 issue of American Spirit magazine.  This is the publication that used my Laura plantation pictures (I posted about it here).  The article, "The Women of Laura Plantation", starts on page 28 with a two page spread of one of my pictures - a picture of an old oak tree.  By the end the article three more of my pictures grace the pages.  There is something about seeing the pictures on glossy magazine copy.  Frankly the pictures look better in print than on my screen.

The next good thing that happened is receiving my latest blood test result.  My numbers this time around are better than they've been in years.  I have been playing around with my diet a bit and riding my bike (on a training stand for now because of the whole winter thing going on outside).  I think both of these have helped get my numbers under better control.

Both of these things have put me in a good place.  The first pumped up my ego a bit and the later came as a relief.  My mood lately has been pretty mellow ... in a good way.  Content.  Relaxed.  There is another reason for my mellow mood but, as I promised a couple posts ago, I will talk about it in a future post (I don't want to build it up too much since it's nothing spectacular ... I just need things to post about).

Not everything was good.  Over the past few weeks I've had to reset my router multiple times.  This week it went from resetting once a day to resetting multiple times a day.  I went out on Friday and bought a new ... and better ... router.  Things appear to be running smooth again.  Heaven forbid we were without WiFi.  *shudder*

I have a couple more Camino posts to write.  The first of these will come out next week.  I'll be writing it between the snow shoveling this weekend.

So that's my rather ordinary week.  Hope you all had a good one as well.

Oh ... and a very Happy Birthday to the Mother-in-Law!
