Oof. I am wiped out. I got a few hours of sleep in, but most of my night was spent trying to comfort Stella. We had storms roll through overnight. She got bad enough that I finally gave her some medicine to calm her down. I think I got another hour nap in before something spooked her. We ended up on the couch in Chris’s office. He came to bed around 4am and that was about the time the storms started. I coaxed her out of bed and shut the door so Chris could get some sleep. I was about to convince her to leave the office around 8am. She is snoozing on the couch out here in the living room right now.
So here I am with my first cup of coffee for the day. Wondering what to do. Wondering because I would really like to be asleep right now. But if I do that I will throw off my sleep schedule even more. Ah well. I have phone calls that need to be made. I can also work on my writing. I have been working on my character development. I need to bring in characters from the Norwegian side of my main character’s family. I have the Italian side all covered. The Norwegian side just has a few names. I do have an uncle that I can see in my head, but there needs to be more.
Since our mower is down our awesome neighbor mowed his front yard then ours. Another reason I am glad it rained. The front yard was all dust and dried out mess when he mowed. I had to take allergy meds when he was done. But the yard looks a lot better. Meanwhile I have been on a documentary kick. Mostly about my horror movies. I am currently rewatching the one on the Friday the 13th series titled Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th. It is over 400 minutes long soooo….over 4 hours? I watched part of it last night and I will probably finish it tonight. I have been bouncing around on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Shudder for my documentaries. I really enjoy the back stories. And my little heart goes pitter patter when I see my favorite actors/stuntman/fx pros (that I met) on screen (Kane Hodder and Tom Savini).
I guess I ought to get myself motivated and get my day going. I can make my phone calls in my office so I don’t wake Chris. I need to see if I can coax little miss outside to go potty before the next chunk of rain comes through. Oh and plant updates! My awesome banana tree now has 3 new leaves, my orange tree is well on his way to becoming a full-fledged tree (he is branching off in various directions and the main trunk is becoming a thick woody type trunk) and I am going to have to repot George (my succulent) as he is growing like some kind of super charged weed (he’s probably 4 inches (10cm) tall and still growing! On that note I bid you adieu! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
