No, I’m not having an affair. According to the dictionary, one of the definitions of the word fling when used as a noun is:
A short period of unrestrained pursuit of one’s wishes or desires.
February is the shortest month so I figured that I could pursue my wishes and desires this month unrestrained. (Well, as unrestrained as this introvert can get).
Used as a verb it means to throw, cast or hurl with violence. I’m not really a violent person but I can fling these blog posts out there can’t I?
We’ll start with this: Can you spot the differences?
Aside from me being in my craft room in the first one and in an office in the second of course.
How about here?
Yep! That’s the concrete foundation. Shed coming next week. It’s a process, but it’s started!
As you do sometimes, I stumbled upon another challenge for the month of February. This one is from Bee Writes and I found her through some comments on Linda’s last #JusJoJan post. The challenge is called “Love Is In Da Blog” and it looks like it is another musical one, which is fine by me.
Today’s prompt is “My favorite love song.” This is a hard one because there are a lot of love songs I like, but I think my all time favorite is “Faithfully” by Journey.
Of course, the story is that Jonathan Cain wrote this song for his wife and shortly thereafter they split up and we all know what happened to Steve Perry and Sherry but something about the song still gets to me. There was a time in our young married life when my husband worked graveyard and I worked regular hours so we did go through some periods where we didn’t see each other. Lately, since he is retired and I work from home we’re together 24/7 but being faithful to each other has always been very important. In my mind it even has to do with being faithful to each other, not just because of distance away but also in the way we have changed over the past 34 years. We are coming up on our 35th anniversary and I still feel toward him the same way I felt when we were first together, yet in some ways we are rediscovering each other now that the kids are grown and our lifestyle is changing.
So, there’s the First Fling of February. Hope it didn’t hurt. Play along with the #Loveisindablog too!
