It is a steady rain this morning. The skies have darkened since we got up. It was another late night last night because I stayed up to see Chris when he got home last night. Unfortunately my body was awake at 7:30am. Yesterday was hard. I found out that a dear friend died from COVID-19. I shared the news on my Facebook account because it was honestly easier than having the conversation around twenty times over phone calls and messages.
I did get some time out in the sun in the afternoon. It got warm and the sun was shining so out I went with a book. Once 3pm hit it seemed that the dogs demanded I spend time with them so I packed up my goodies and we played and watched tv. I found more documentaries on writers I admire (or just enjoy their writing) on Amazon. The other day we watched one on Margret Atwood. Last night I watched one on Neil Gaiman (I respect him even more after watching) and then one on Harlan Ellison (I am still not sure how I feel about him; a brilliant mind but no filter). As I watched I complied a list of my heroes (in regards to writing). So I am trying to use that as inspiration.
I got an article written last night and I hope to get more done today. The temperature has dropped for today so I think it will be an inside day due to the rain. If it stops later I might venture out and continue weeding one of the raised beds out back. I did get all the indoor seeds planted in pots. I have been taking them in and out of the sun everyday. My Italian sweet basil is sprouting like crazy so I think I will have some inside and outside. I always seem to do well with herbs from seed. This will be the first time I will be doing other food stuffs from seed. We’ll see how I do.
I also want to thank everyone who has been reaching out over the past few weeks. It means a lot. I should get myself together and try working on a review or my novel. Thanks for reading. I hope you and your family stay safe. Have a great day!
