I finally slept. Unfortunately I think it did more harm than good. But we shall see. My goals today are to write the article for the paper and get that submitted and try to get a good chunk of the Anne Rice piece written. I am more familiar with her and her writings. That said I am still going through various reference books I have regarding her. She is such a complex person. I don’t know what I want to say about her. I have two research books regarding Shirley Jackson that should arrive tomorrow. I plan to binge read those as much as possible so I can get the piece on Shirley written asap. I am angry with myself for not doing more but there just hasn’t been enough time.
Right now I can barely keep my eyes open. My back feels like someone is trying to flay the muscle from the bone (which is an vast improvement to the pain that woke me up). If I go back to sleep then I feel as though I have wasted my day, my quiet time. I am contemplating transplanted the habanero seedlings to a hanging pot today. I should have enough dirt. I am very pleased to see that none of the seedlings got stressed when I moved them to the long window box. I have been trying to make sure that they stay watered. My green pepper plant has made a comeback and is not only flourishing but she has two new peppers budding! My goal is to be able to grow some food that we can eat (especially in the winter). If this goes well I might as for a small green house for the backyard.
Mom has decided that she isn’t going to move out here after all. I told her that was fine as long as she was happy. Unfortunately she has decided to unpack everything she had packed. All at once by the sound of it. So she is deep in the throes of rearranging and putting things away. But like I said, if she is happy go for it.
Ok, I need to wrap this up and get going on the articles. I spent a lot of time reading many of your post this morning. There are so many more I want to read! Keep up the good work! Thanks for taking the time to read my stuff too. Stay safe!
