I cracked an eye at the clock around 7am. I really didn’t want to get up that early. I could get a lot of writing done but I was just so tired. Then I couldn’t get my brain to shut up. I did manage to get a few minutes of meditation in before I fell asleep. Next time I cracked an eye it was almost 9:30am. Feeling a little behind I decided to get up.
I was part way through reading your various blogs when my laptop informed me that the battery was going to die unless I plugged it in. I read faster. When I finally checked the percent it was below 10. So here we are plugged in in the office.
The sun is out so that will help. Stella is laying in a puddle of sunshine by the sliding glass door. I need to go out and get the small metal trellis from the memorial garden for the cucumbers. They are getting huge and need to grow on something. The small metal kabob skewer I put in there for them is no longer adequate. I will water plants today as well.
Yesterday was good. I spent a good portion of it watching Asian horror films. Normally I don’t really care for them (too many zombie movies for one thing) but yesterday I was in the mood. Their cultures are so old and yet they can be so modern. The juxtaposition that the writers and directors use between the two I really enjoyed.
I am looking around my office and realizing that I need to start working on cleaning the house. Nothing major. Just a little at a time. There is just so much to do and so little time to do it. What’s worse is you bust your tail to get things clean and a few days later it just looks the same. But I think I good hardy cleaning is what is needed around here. Even if I don’t get it all done by the time we leave for the trip. It just needs to be done for us. Now to figure out where to begin.
I did make some headway with my characters. It’s more like more questions that need to be answered but it helps me get the juices flowing. I may tackle a few of those questions today. I need names as well. I have basic descriptions. But it will all come together.
So one last thing before I go… I let Chris take my car since I get better gas mileage. In return he offered to get Angus’s oil change and wipers. Apparently there was a nest of some kind in my air box! I mean seriously! I don’t mind helping the local wildlife but I am drawing the line! I am debating about what to do to prevent that in the future. I haven’t had my hood up unless we needed to jump start a vehicle. On that note I will wrap this up. Sorry it’s kind of all over the place. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
