A thick fog has creeped its way in since I got up this morning. It gets so that you can’t see across the street then the trees and neighbor’s house appear for a few minutes before getting swallowed up again. Reminds me of Stephen King’s The Mist. Stella is snoring behind me beneath a pile of blankets. No birds are out around here. Both the front and back yards were busy right up until dark last night. But this morning? Not a feather to be seen. Even through the fog.
I busted tail at work and came home with an upset stomach. I had gotten a sparkling water to try and it really did not agree with me. The longer I was home the more my stomach rebelled. I also got home to find my Kane Hodder signed Jason mask and his biography had been delivered. The box was half smashed with tape on it saying that was how the post office received it. The spine of the book is crushed down from the top and the mask is cracked all the way through. So I sent a message to the placed I ordered it from. We’ll see what they do. I did pay with PayPal so if they don’t offer to replace everything I will contact PayPal and let them fight with them for me. I don’t think I will need to though. I hope.
I tried to watch tv with Chris but I kept feeling worse. So I relinquished control of the tv and hunkered down in bed to read some of my comfort novels. I finished Agatha Christie’s Murder at the Vicarage and then fell into one of my favorite Elizabeth Peter novels The Curse of the Pharaohs. I needed a dose of Amelia Peabody and her husband Emerson. I also realized how much I missed Elizabeth Peters, aka Barbara Mertz. She will forever be one of my heros. She had a PhD in Egyptology and still found time to raise a family and write not only mysteries (she had several series) but romance/thrillers and several very good books on Egyptology.
I did no work on my novel yesterday but that is ok. I did do a mental run through of where I wanted the story to go as I dosed off. I will try to get this wrapped up and try to work on it before work. I have outlines for my characters and physical descriptions but I still don’t see them clearly in my mind’s eye. When I am writing I see through their eyes and write what I see and feel. We’ll see how that goes. I don’t have any new photos so I will reshare some of my old ones. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
