Wednesday Feels Random

| May 15, 2013

I think summer arrived. 80s in the forecast, as far as the eye can see, and I assume many of those 80s will turn into 90s, as often happens here. That makes me sad. Except for one thing. The pool will start warming up. Sadly, the beloved found a squirrel in the pool on Mother’s […]

Mother’s Day, the Adams Way!

| May 13, 2013

Last night we had a yummy dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant, and I’m swamped in beautiful bouquets and chocolates and loving, lovely cards. (One plays “Tequila!” Which always makes me want to dance!) I cannot resist stopping to breathe in the carnations. The scent brings back my own mom and the days I spent, […]

A Plan for Wednesday

| May 8, 2013

Wide awake at 5 a.m. Time to start the coffee. Time to start work. Yesterday’s progress: 1783 words of story. Several hand-written pages of spewing information about the hero until he began to form in a way that makes me feel “right” about him. Sometimes I get stuck on the craziest things–points that do not […]

Writing, Writing, Writing

| May 7, 2013

I’m working on a new story. I have my heroine, and I’m grabbing at my hero. He’s proving a little bit elusive, but I’m in charge around here!  😉 So–I started a synopsis because I was preparing a pitch, and I needed some coherent words. The synopsis I have is about three pages. It’ll probably […]

A Break in the Heat

| May 6, 2013

We’ve already had temps in the 80s this year, but the past few days have brought rain and a beautiful break in the heat. Right now, my house is at 63 degrees. Outside, it’s 46, but the low was down to 43 this morning. It won’t last long, but it’s nice right now! Today is […]

Hello, Friday!

| May 3, 2013

We did one of my favorite things in the world last night. We went to a baseball game. It was fun and rainy and a bit chilly. Perfect baseball weather! The rain may have depleted attendance, or it may have been the fact that the Braves aren’t playing as well as one might hope just […]

Busy Wednesday

| May 1, 2013

I thought I was way ahead of my own busy day. I’ve exercised and yanked a few weeds, cleaned the upstairs, washed bedding, and written a few hundred words. Sadly, I only use my phone as a clock/watch these days, and it’s an hour and seventeen minutes behind. Why an hour and seventeen minutes? Anyway, […]
