Looking at my paycheck this week last week was almost worth it. I will be able to catch up on a few things as well as take care of some purchases that I need to do. Simple things like jeans and shorts for work (I currently have a pair of each) and a pair of boots (my current loves are coming apart from the inside out).
The sun is out and the temperature is mild. I was gifted a bunch of plants last night as well as two broken bags of dirt so I want to get as many plants in the ground as I can. Well, pots. I think some of the plants will go into the memorial garden at the base of the tree as well. I got some unusual herbs as well as some common ones to grow. Once again I am trying a tomato plant. For whatever reason I can’t seem to grow tomatoes.
I got a page and a half written yesterday before work. I decided to put forth my novel in class instead of writing something new. The hard part is that I have several novel beginnings to choose from. I got almost a full page in when I discovered a more recent novel start that I think will be better suited. The problem is pulling all the information from all the starts together. I am also worried that some of my classmates might not like the genre so I might get some harsh critics because of that. I guess we’ll see. So the big question is do I finish that last half page today or tomorrow? I should do it today since I need to upload it onto out class page. But I am not sure if I will have enough time for all of it (I have to save the document, send it via email, upload it… oh and write that last half page). Yesterday I got called in early. Tomorrow I get out early so I will have time to get things together before class. I need to figure out a better writing schedule. Leaving all this last minute means no one really gets to read much before class. And I know that I haven’t read anyone else’s stuff. Maybe it is a good thing I don’t belong to a writer’s group. So much gets going on lately. It feels like I barely have time to breathe. And when I do try then I feel guilty because there is so much that needs to be done.
Stella actually got up with me this morning. With the nice weather she has been in and out of the house. She is also bored. Unlike Essie and Moose she will probably stay inside when I go out to putter in the gardens. Speaking of which I need to wrap this up of I am going to get anything else done before work. How dare I try to get some sleep and have a life! I will leave you with a few photos of my new plants. The potted plant that is all leaves is a hydrangea. Oh and the little bird on the grass? A woodpecker! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
