Quote of the Day:
“Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.”
Despite having to get up at 3:30 in the morning and take DS to the bathroom, I feel surprisingly jolly today. I found a CD in my bag this morning and put it in the player in my car. I couldnâ€™t remember what was on it, so I figured Iâ€™d just give it a listen.
The first song that played was â€œHello, I Love Youâ€ by The Doors. I hadnâ€™t heard that song in ages and it was great to hear it again. The on to some Beatles â€“ â€œBlackbirdâ€ â€“ and (oh my gosh) â€œMidnight at the Oasisâ€. HAHA Some Mary Chapin Carpenter (did she do Midnight at the Oasis? I canâ€™t rememberâ€¦) next and then I got a real shocker. â€œI Think I Love Youâ€ by the Patridge Family. I laughed my butt off when I heard it on there. Apparently, when I made this CD, I was feeling rather nostalgic for old music.
Iâ€™m embarrassed to say I know all the words to â€œI Think I Love Youâ€, cheesy as they are.
When I arrived at my MILs house to drop off my son, he informed me that he didnâ€™t like my choice of music. â€œMom, I donâ€™t like those songs.â€ Sorry, son.
Children will always tell you what they think. They havenâ€™t learned to guard themselves yet. What if we, as adults, never learned that? What if we always said what we thought? Iâ€™d be in a world of trouble then. LOL
I got two issues of the serials done yesterday and turned in. Issue 113 of Scars and issue 99 of Ransom & Fortune are turned in! Iâ€™m going to try to get two more done (one of each) today or tomorrow. Very pleased with my progress on the serials.
I only got about 1000 words done yesterday on the new WIP. I can’t think of a name for my squire, so for the moment he is just called [the squire]. And I need a Count of something, so for the moment he is Count of Somesuchplace. Until I can figure out a proper name for each of them.
I should have written last night, but instead I played with my camera. Took some new pics for the Shoe Gallery (click left). I had fun snapping pictures and I got some great ones of DS.
Since my nieceâ€™s birthday is tomorrow, I wrapped up her gift to get ready to mail. I used some green tissue paper and then I found these cute stickers to sort of close up the tissue. They say things like girl power and itâ€™s a girl thing. Sheâ€™ll be nine, so I hope she likes it. And since sheâ€™s into figure skating, instead of buying a card, I made my own. I found some great skater-girl graphics to use. Very pleased with the result on that one. I brought it to work with me today so I can get it off in the mail for tomorrowâ€™s delivery.
So I tinkered again on the computer. Played with the digital camera. I think Iâ€™m going to take the camera and snap some pictures of things around the house. Sort of do a really up close shot. Just to see what I get. They did that on Extreme Home Makeover one episode and got some really cool prints, framed them, and hung them as artwork around the house. Iâ€™m not saying I want to do that but I just want to play.
My writing friend, Angela, posed the question: What’s your writing space? I figured I’d take a picture and post for all to see. And since I just cleaned it up, I figured this would be a good time to take a picture.
Folks, here’s where I’m brilliant (hehe):
The desk was made by hand. My darling husband built it for me from scratch. I don’t even think he had blueprints to go by; he just built it.
Welp… off to work!
