I’m not sure how long this will be. We have had steady rain and very strong winds for a few hours now. I finally got everyone settled and laying down. However the gusts of wind ae getting worse and things are thumping and at times flying through the air in the yard. The dogs keep getting spooked and I’m not sure how long we will have power.
Yesterday was wonderfully uneventful. I am about halfway through Joe Hill’s short story collection Full Throttle (thank you Mom). I have tried to keep the kids busy but not too busy. Essie is more active than she should be but there is very little that I can do to stop her. She will rest when she is tired and she has been careful of her stitches. I need to call to get her in to get the tubes out. Then a week later she will hopefully get her stitches out. It makes me cry to look at her sometimes.
There is almost no snow left anywhere. You might see a white patch here or there but it looks like March outside, not December going into January. There are also a lot of branches hanging randomly from trees. Going to be a bit of a clean up after this weather is over.
I did get my article written but still plugging along on the review. Still. It’s very frustrating. Part of it is me not trusting myself and the other part is not knowing what they want. Do they want more technical? Do they want my voice or a more straight laced I-know-what-I’m-talking-about voice? I’m not sure so I drag my feet. A review I did for another site still hasn’t seen the light of day. And the two reviews I busted butt to get written and delivered on time last year have been forgotten about once again. So I took them back. I have no idea where I am going to put them but they are mine to do with as I please.
We just had a brown out (lights went out then back on quickly). That really spooked everyone. And that means I might not have internet to post this. So I’d better wrap this up. I hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for reading!❤️
