Monday All Over Again

Monday again babyI spent a good part of the weekend at the ballpark watching the 14Us play. They won their bracket on Saturday. Yay! As I’m typing this around noonish on Sunday, I have no clue as to the final outcome. Hopefully, I’ll have the energy to edit this post to update. 😆

Baseball stuffs: While I’m on the topic, things have changed tremendously since Only played softball. I remember when we first found her a wheeled equipment bag big enough for all her catcher’s gear and backup (for when she played a field position), extra gloves, bats, cleats. We carried canopies, “camp” chairs, and all equiment–like the trainer’s kit, ice chest, etc.

Sport wagon

Game day tent

Now there are collapsible wagons. And pop-up “game day” tents. I want to shake my cane and tell the whippersnappers how tough it was in our day! 😉 I got tickled at one of the boys on the team. He was trying to tease Only with a Yogi-ism. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a term applied to the wonderful malapropos used by Yogi Berra, one of Only’s heroes. He was using the “Half the game of baseball is 90% mental.” She countered with “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” He just sort of stared. Yeah, whippersnappers! Anyway, after sitting downwind of a dirt field with 30 mph winds blowing, Only and I are now proud owners of the pop-up tents. 😆 You can check them out HERE and HERE.

Reading/audio books: I finished off Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series. My eyes have appreciated the rest but time to get back to real words on the screen/page. I have many books waiting. Not sure which one I’ll glom onto in the next day or so.

TV: Finally clearing off some of last season’s Outlander episodes on the DVR. Yeah, about time since the new season started Saturday night. 😆 Ah well. I think I have 4 episodes left? But it’s baseball season!

Writing: Hollywood finally got his $h!+ together. In case y’all aren’t familiar, Eric “Hollywood” Hilton is the hero of NIGHT MOVES, the next Nightrider installment. I have lots of disjointed scenes written, including Lainey Walker’s entrance into the Nightrider world. She’s his heroine, FYI. Wood just didn’t want to cooperate with his intro. Because games were played late Saturday, I got chapters 1 and 2 written, so yay! Hopefully, I’ll have chapter 3 done by the time y’all read this. I posted Wood’s picture on my reader’s page on Facebook, in case any of you don’t follow me over there. You can click on the Facebook icon in the side bar, follow me, and scroll down to see Wood’s picture. All I can say is he’s a handful. 😉

That’s my update. What about y’all? What did you do this weekend? What are you reading? Writing? Watching?

Oh, fence update. The BiL is supposed to send a guy over to give us an estimate. LG does NOT need to be building a fence. Just sayin’…

  1. I thought I commented here this morning. Gah, I must’ve been coffee deprived. It’s one of those days where there just isn’t enough coffee in the world to wake me up.

    The weekend? Let’s see. I finished the edits on FG and sent them off to JC. Then I sat around, watched golf, and read. Loads of reading. Nothing else got accomplished. Same thing today. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I hope this is recharging my batteries, because I feel drained. Maybe I’ll get stuff done tomorrow. :fingers crossed:

      Yesterday was definitely that. Not sure today is starting much better. 😛 Yay for getting the edits done and off, though! I’m running on half battery power because recharging didn’t work. 😆

Got something to say?
