This morning I heard a lawn mower somewhere in the neighborhood…at 6 am. Wow. I guess I can’t blame them. When it’s 95 degrees with high humidity I don’t want to get out and mow either. Our low last night was…79.
I did get some progress on the second chapter last night. Yes, it’s very slow going, but it’s going! I need to flesh out some of the emotion and give it more of a punch. So I’m hoping to do that with this second chapter. Plus, I came up with a good idea on how t make it do just that (thanks, Lara!). I also did some research on medieval weapons. Well, okay, fantasy medieval weapons. I’m trying to look at the big picture of the story so I can incorporate it with a series. I have two books planned so far with hopes of at least another two. I think this is can a really great epic fantasy. It’s certainly come a long way! I really want to get this story done because it’s been part of me for so long and I just can’t let it go…yet.
Anyway, this morning, as I was taking the baby boy to his grandparents for the day, we saw a guy walking across the street. He said, “That poor man.” So I asked him why. He told me he was walking all the way across the street (we happened to be at corner with Just Brakes on one and Service King on the other). I said, “I bet he dropped his car off to be fixed.”
There was a pause in the backseat and then, “Well, he should have called Enterprise. Because they pick you up.”
I giggled. Kids…they say some of the funniest stuff!
We had a good evening together last night. I had him laughing so hard he couldn’t breath. It was fantastic. I love those belly laughs! And I was laughing so hard I was crying. I wouldn’t trade those moments for anything in the world.
It’s Friday! Hope everyone has a smashing weekend! I have RWA in the morning and I’m looking forward to it!
