It’s still Friday somewhere, yes?
I was exhausted from sorting and hauling and shopping and laughing and running through the lightning/rain yesterday, and fell asleep in my hotel room in Champaign last night before I could get the blog up. And today there was more of the same, though fortunately little rain. But my daughter has weeded everything out that she could and we took many, many clothes and domestic goods to Goodwill, and donated many books to the library. She’s just about ready to leave for her summer gig. Time flies.
I’ve told you before about the Mysterious Radio podcast. It’s full of tales of hauntings and myriad conspiracy theories. I listen purely for entertainment purposes, but there are some episodes that fascinate me more than others. Today I went back and listened to two episodes on Flat Earth theory. Yes, that’s a thing. Some of the guy’s points and the connections he made sounded strangely…plausible. But I confess I still think we live on a sphere, not a plane.
I’m home now. The garden is perky from watering and rain, and we watched the 2-episode finale of Supernatural tonight. Are you a Supernatural fan? I would feel much worse about the finale if I hadn’t read that the actors who play Dean, Sam, Crowley, and Castiel have signed up for season 13. Season 12 was oddly uneven, though the finale was excellent.
Now that I’m home, I have a couple of projects to finish up–including our taxes, for which we have an extension. So if I’m grouchy next week, you’ll know why. But once those projects are behind me, I have not one, but two novel projects to start outlining. And I need to get back up to speed on working out. I did great leading up to the Edgars, and don’t want to completely lose momentum. At the risk of sounding like a meme, I believe exercise is a gift we give to our future selves.
Speaking of memes–The pic is from a tee shirt I bought this week. It’s my new favorite. I love owls, and I was thoroughly charmed by the image of an owl in red glasses!
Laundry and writing this weekend for me. What’s your plan? 💜
