Monday the 12th of Never

Sunrise. Sunset. Day. Night. This old world just keeps spinning along and time passes. Totally beats the altermative, I’m thinking. I do wish Mother Nature would stop drinking though. Yesteray? 80+ degrees, blue skies, gorgeous, so long as you were out of the wind. However, this is Oklahoma and the wind does come sweeping down the plain. Today? A high of 60, cloudy, and a chance of rain, with that sweeping wind from the north. Brrr.

Last week was mostly a bust when it came to writing but I have a few gangbuster days, including yesterday. Several things happened–the timeline got itself sorted, as did the bad guys. A plot thread that had been dangling got nicely woven into some semblance of sense. Also, quite a few words written and scenes rearranged into good order. This book continues to surprise me.

Reading/listening was okay. I finished off the Jayne Castle marathon. I procrastinated a lot on Saturday after I finished ORCHID, book 3 in the St. Helen’s trilogy. I went through my Audible library. Then I went through my Want to Read list on Goodreads. The same with Hoopla. I went back to Audible and did some searches on the Plus catalog. Nothing jumped out at me so I gave up and tried to write. Got a little bit done. I finally settled on a Kristen Ashley reread of one of the books in her Colorado Mountain series, SWEET DREAMS.

Got caught up on some of the DVR’d shows last week–my usual paranormal, strange evidence, and SciFi fare. And The Masked Singer. The unmasked singer wasn’t a big surprise. Nick Cannon, the usual host, has been out this season with Covid. Niecy Nash filled in for him. This season, they’ve been tossing in a Wild Card contestant during each group’s finals. In last week’s show, Niecy preempted the vote and she decided who would be unmasked. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the WC was Nick Cannon and he’ll be back to hosting next week. Anyway…the contestants can really sing this season and as usualy, I have no clue (from either the clues or the voices) of who they are.

My Cards are winning more than losing. That’s good. Injuries are starting to pop up and that’s concerning. Still, baseball feels more like baseball this year and I hope that means we’re getting closer to a new-old normal. #1 OU is still undefeated in softball and my Cowgirls had an awesome weekend. They’re currently at #12. I personally think they are playing better and deserved to be in the Top 10 but whatever. Regionals, Super-regionals, and the Women’s College World Series will tell the tale.

Loki reappeared. He was being a jerk and hiding in the garage. He eventually made his presence known and darted back into the house about 3 a.m. on Tuesday. Cat. Stormy was here on Monday and it was fun having him here. We played catch for a bit and he watched cartoons while I did a little work. Hard to believe he’s 7 now. *flail* Time is moving waaay to fast.

And speaking of time, this darn book ain’t gonna write itself. Time to get off the itnrawebz and get some words typed out. 🤞 today is as productive as yesterday was. I promise I can see The End just over the horizon. That’s my plan for the day. What’s yours? Did you have a good weekend? Anything exciting happen to you last week? Looking forward to anything this week?

  1. Oh, darlin’, I am so toast this morning I can’t even think enough to comment on all your stuffs. Yay for all your good stuff, boo for the roller coaster weather and the not-writing days.

    I had a good weekend, I guess. Until last night when I got jumped by insomnia and thrashed soundly. Nothing exciting happened. Unless you count tomato sprouts as exciting. No big plans. More coffee. Loads and loads of coffee.

      Coffee is my BFF. Insomnia is obviously on spring break and running wild. I was up at 3:41 this morning. That’s two in a row and I’m ready to break the I’s winning streak. I purposely didn’t nap yesterday. Didn’t help. Totally gonna be livin’ la vida caffeine today. Hang in there!

  2. Ahhh, I sure do miss that Oklahoma weather. Really. I’m not kidding. Why does no one ever believe me when I say that?!

    • Silver James says:

      Because those of us who live here know better? 🤣 Also, sorry for being slow to respond. It’s been one of those weeks.

      Psst. I may gritch about the weather but I kinda like it better than most places I’ve lived, too. Just sayin’… 😉

Got something to say?
