It’s sort of a gray cloudy day today, with intermittent bouts of bright sunshine. So it isn’t too bad. I’m one of those people who must have sunshine or I have a tendency to get down in the dumps. I know it’s silly, and I know you can put lightbulbs in your home to counteract this problem. But I can’t seem to help it. It’s like my mother used to say about rainy days, you can’t get anything done on a rainy day. And in many ways that’s true.
I am happy to report I have not seen any evidence of any more mice. The cats are not even stalking the washer bottom anymore. But they did decide to get me awake at 6 o’clock this morning, and would not let me go back to sleep. But animals are that way. When their little belly’s rumble they want you up and fixing and food.
I am venturing forth out of the house today, and taking a break from working. Going to go have lunch with a friend at Fargo’s restaurant. They have great salads and other food. I particularly like the little pizzas. It’s just the right size for one or two people, then I am going to come home and begin working on editing and writing or rewriting.
I do have to get my laundry started. I was having trouble with the plumbing going from the washer to the other drains and had to call a plumber to rotor-root it. Everything seems to be working fine now and draining nicely. So it’s time to get all my laundry caught up.
Right now I’m fighting with Tigger to making him stop slapping my microphone. It seems he likes to be wherever I am. When I go off he doesn’t like it at all. He acts like a dog and I believe he thinks he is one. He does everything JoJo does. He is growing like a weed and is going to be a very big cat. He has a tail as long as a monkeys, but he’s a beautiful cat. And so sweet and loving when he’s not trying to get in trouble. He and my small miniature Doberman are the best of friends. They wrestle from one end of this house to the other. As long as they have fun I don’t care. Plus it’s good exercise for them.
Well I’m ready to start another round of editing on The Hangman. I take a chapter at a time and go over it line by line. I am also rewriting All For The Love Of Hannah. I have to say I like how it’s coming along. It seems to be flowing nicely. I wrote it as a short novella of only about twenty-five or 30,000 words. So essentially the story was completely written in a very short version. All I am doing is expanding each chapter and putting more into the novel about each character, plus more action. I hope everything works out as I plan.
Since I need to jump in the shower and get ready for lunch I’m going to say goodbye for now.
Always remember, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER.
The best to you all, and please stay safe,
