A Day in My Life


I’m participating in the weekly blogging challenge at Long and Short Reviews.

I can’t say my days are terribly exciting. Go to work.  Laundry. Cooking. Laundry. Cleaning. Laundry. I hate laundry.  I don’t have a job where I can guarantee writing in the mornings or evenings. If freelance work is hectic, the only time I can dedicate to writing are stray thoughts in a notebook I keep with me constantly. But every now and then, I get to schedule writing days…particularly it I am working on the second draft-the edits and rewrites-which is the most difficult. (And my current struggle.)

Everyday is a reading day!!! I don’t know what I’d do without books.

But what I try to do everyday is make sure I get a chance to appreciate the outdoors.

It’s essential for me to get some physical exercise. I used to be really poor at this. I’d tell myself it was too much  trouble to go to the swimming pool; too much traffic to drive to the gym-any excuse. But I have learned that it is vital to move my body. I have to make sure my muscles are strong. I can sleep better and write better when my body is in shape.

I am a big fan of short hikes. I am fortunate to live in a place with lots of nature that has several parks and a small mountain right behind my house. There are several marked courses I can take-the shortest about 30 minutes, the longest about 2 hours- at a steady pace. So, I thought I’d share a few pictures. If I want to vary my excursions, I take a bicycle ride along the seaside.


And when I’m done-I watch some SF; usually an episode of Star Trek. A Trek a day keeps the doctor away. 🙂 Currently, I am working through THE EXPANSE. 

So, how was your day? Did you see anything beautiful you’d like to share?


*I also write romance books. I don’t promo myself much, but feel free to check out my website.

    1. Mt. Fuji actually! It is technically a volcano (didn’t know that). Though it’s dormant. I hope. Very nice view from the house. I think Mt. Rainer doubles as Mt. Fuji in movies because Japan is too crowded.:)

  1. I keep saying I’m going to start Jessica Jones, but I get sidetracked and I’d rather binge it anyway. Probably should get to it before it disappears from Netflix, too.
    Good post. 🙂 I hate laundry, too.

  2. I love the pics. What kind of tree is that in the first one? So pretty how it’s all white like that. How are you liking The Expanse? It’s something I’ve contemplated watching, but haven’t managed yet. I’m too busy watching anime. Hahaha.

    My post!

    1. The tree is a cherry blossom. I have only gotten up to ep. 5 and its pretty interesting. Lots of characters, but some neat ideas. I wish I had time to binge some episodes but it hasn’t worked out.


      1. That’s what I thought it was, but wasn’t sure. So pretty. Glad to hear that you’re enjoying it though, I’m going to have to find time to watch it now.


  3. So funny, I thought it was Mt. Rainer, too! I agree about staying active (thankfully, I have the dogs to help keep me moving). Thanks for stopping by earlier. Have a great day!
