I have a window and the view is fine

A window with bright blue skies and crisp, brightly illuminated clouds


I love my window today. I had occasion to work near it, and caught sight of some gorgeous clouds. They’re moving quickly, though, with threats of flash flood causing thunderstorms this afternoon. I’ll take the blue sky while I have it – and the air conditioning inside that goes with.

Monday is here again

Good morning! ^_^

Yesterday was Father’s day, and I did my best to make sure my husband had a good day. I didn’t neglect my father, either, but I felt like I needed to compensate for my kids (instead of, you know, including them). At any rate, I hope my dad and husband know they’re loved as fathers.

I went shopping twice, once for sundries and once for groceries. I also made Cheese Toasties (grilled cheese sandwiches) for supper which went over very well. I got Elder Youth to mow, and Junior Youth to take care of some chores that had been neglected. All in all, it went well.

I also wrote, near the end of the day, but I did it solely so I could Minecraft without guilt. I’m trying desperately to build a slime farm, and it’s not working.

And there’s more!

Week 25 took a small hit to words. I plugged along diligently, managing more fiction than blog words nearly all days. In fact, the only reason there’s more blog than fiction is due to a particularly lengthy book review that took 600 words. Otherwise, the numbers would have leaned the other direction.

This coming week may be difficult to keep my counts up, unless I manage some spectacular numbers early. I have a quick trip to almost Chicago this weekend, starting Friday night and ending Sunday afternoon, and I don’t expect to get much more than token words done. It’s a 671 mile drive, and I’ll be trying it on my own on the way out. On the way back there will be an extra driver to trade with. I do plan on taking my writing laptop, so we’ll see.
