fabulous friday...

It's been a good day so far, and a pretty good week as well.

I was up at a decent hour this morning despite not getting to bed until 3:30 am. I was reading a great book, The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult. I highly recommend it!

Miss Pottenger and I went to Panera at 11 to write for a few hours. I got over 2000 words, so I'm happy. And it's great to have another creative mind close at hand for those weird questions. Example, I asked, "Can you shimmy down a rope?" and "Does dew form in the evening or just in the morning?" We also discussed how a bad guy could get a woman out of a crowded hospital without a lot of silly threats. I think I may be writing the wrong genre as I had some great ideas for Miss Pottenger's plot and action.

Once I got home, I managed to do a load of dishes, put everything in the kitchen away where it belonged, cleaned the stove and then went out to the shed to get some things.

And it's only 4 in the afternoon! I was in a chatty mood so I thought I'd post something. Hope your week is going well.

thoughts I'm thinking...

Hi. It's been a while. Didn't mean to leave you all hanging like that. I was stuck in the land of seriously limited internet access, and it wasn't Africa :) It was Wyoming. I spent about 3 weeks up there finishing up some painting for my dad.

I'm back now and catching up on life. I'm trying to do some writing, but I'm at a point on my current project where I don't have a great desire to continue it. I will, I know, but I have to get past the "this is really boring" part.

I'm working, kinda. I've picked up a few shifts in the nursery at church. It's not much, but it gets me out of bed early a few days a week, so I can't complain. Otherwise, I stay up WAY too late, reading or watching movies. While that is great for getting my story mind in action, it's not a good way to get ME into action before 10 in the morning :).

As far as the future goes (because so many people have asked), I have no idea what my long term plan is. Perhaps because I don't have one at the moment. There is a lot that I could say about that, but I'm not quite ready to go into it all, so we'll just say, I'm waiting.

And to make waiting more interesting, I've taken up crocheting. Nothing fancy, I won't be making anything complicated, but I'm on my second blanket already. How's that for saying I have too much time on my hands? Dad better bring home some paint so I can paint this house!

Alright, don't forget to leave me a comment so I know you've been by!
