The Good and the Bad

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!
