Monday is the Day After

cute-puppy-pictures-hello-im-here-to-make-your-monday-suck-less Who had fun this weekend? Raise your hands. Who needs extra coffee this morning? *raises hand* That said, I thinking today is going to be okay. Not sure why but I’m ever hopeful. πŸ˜†

I cleared off the DVR/cable box in the bedroom. It spontaneously decided that two of the channels I watch A LOT should be temporarily unavailable. For two weeks. Yeah, that bad puppy is going for a trade-in today. In doing so, I watched the last few episodes of SyFy’s LOST GIRL. I do like this series. A lot. And the finale had me in tears. That doesn’t happen often. The show also introduced me to a new character model. Kyle Schmid played a character named The Wanderer, who turned out to be a warrior named Rainer, who handfasted with Bo to break a curse but they ended up causing the beginning of the end and oh, man! The sacrifices that were made.

Anyway, I digress. Kyle has been in several shows, including playing vampire Henry Fitzroy in BLOOD TIES, but it was his stint as Rainer, along with the darker hair and beard, that captured my imagination. He’ll be my visual for a British SAS operative in my Hard Target series. πŸ˜‰ Feel free to Google his pics, but I’ve added one of my favs below.

What else? Oh…I didn’t read much this weekend. I’ve been doing so much reading and computer work that my eyes were a bit wonky. My far vision is still not quite right, despite taking a couple of days off. Oh well.

And the last bit of news concerns COWGIRL’S SWEETHEART. There’ve been a couple of plot points that bugged the bejeesus out of me. I’ve got them figured out. I think Mr. HEd will be very happy with the solutions. And as a tease, you know that ol’ “A good friend will bail you out at 3 a.m. but a best friend will be sitting right next to you saying, ‘Damn that was fun?'” Yeah…While Cord won’t have anybody sitting next to him, he does end up in the slammer for a bit–at least until Chance can arrange bail. THAT’S going to be a fun scene to write!

So, today is post office, cable store, CP reading, and with luck, some new words on SWEETHEART. Then my plan for the rest of the week is BICHOK until I’m way closer to my 50K word goal on SWEETHEART. I’m thrilled to be starting the week of at just over 25K words. Halfway there!

What’s on your agendas this week? Oh…and here’s Kyle. You’re welcome. πŸ˜‰

    I was at Lori Foster’s RAGT all weekend so I spent time with lots of reader friends and authors. It was so much fun! I’m still recovering and really do need more sleep…wish I could sleep in. I did take today off from work to recover, so hopefully will be able to take a nap at some point this weekend. πŸ™‚

      *muppet flail* Murphy decided to camp out here today. So glad you had a great time at RAGT. That’s on my bucket list. Hope you got your nap in. πŸ˜€

  2. Ooo, he’s pretty. Thanks! And yes, I need extra coffee. Better yet, I need a good thwack on the head with a ballpeen hammer so I fall into unconsciousness and can maybe sleep.

    Agenda for the week: getting my shot at some point, groceries, clean the house… big fun.

      There wasn’t enough coffee in the whole world to fix today. You’re welcome. I like him much better with the beard and dark hair, if you Googled him. But dang, I should have saved him for Tuesday Tease because now I’m trying to figure out a post! πŸ˜†

      Get some sleep!

    It’s almost dinner time and I still haven’t got in the groove of Monday – coffee? I need a shot of energy, stat! Weekend was a blur – but it was nice enough yesterday that we were able to sit outside on the patio and have the first G&Ts of the season (yay). Other than that – nothing!

    Kyle’s awfully nice on the eyes πŸ˜‰

    • Silver James says:

      See my comment to B.E. re: coffee and Kyle. Sounds like there’s something in the air and isn’t just “us”. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. At the moment, I’m thinking G&Ts might be a very good thing. Except I don’t like the taste of gin. Maybe a margarita. Yeah…that’s the ticket! πŸ˜‰
