I’m not really a Monday kinda gal. Or I didn’t used to be. Now? I’m lucky if I remember what any day of the week is, much less Monday. Bein’ older’n dirt sucks. That said, it certainly beats the alternative. So what’s new in my world?
Let’s get the “ehh” out of the way. Writing. There was some. Not much, but some. On a happier note, I now have models for the major characters–both heroes and heroines. I had to do a switch, though. I’d picked out the model for Maura Brannigan, the assistant ADA who is in Ronan O’Connor’s crosshairs. Then I found another model and decided she was right for Maggie O’Brien, who lives nest door to Callum Fitzpatrick. I often download several pics of each character and I did with all these, as well. Then I decided I needed to put names with faces (can you say “procrastination”?) so I went into my digital file to rename all the photos. And as I compaired the original Maura with the original Maggie, I realized I had them backwards. So, that necessitated MORE renaming. I wasn’t really procrastinating. I was organizing. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Stormy was over several times. He’s a fun kid and I know he and Lawyer Guy are enjoying their time together. He’s here today and tomorrow and then his school starts on Wedneday. Second grade. And he keeps getting taller! Pardon me while I go do a little muppet flail in the corner.
Still in something of a reading slump so rather than ruining what might a really good book if my head space was right, I’m falling back on favorites that alwsays hit the spot. At the moment, that’s Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. Kate and Curran are a favorite couple and it’s been about 18 months so…
Baseball is much better! My Cards are starting to get the hits and winning games. They still have a LONG and bumpy road to the playoffs but there’s a chance now. It’s good to have starting pitcher Jack Flaherty back. He had an awesome game against Kansas City in his first start after coming back up from being injured. In softball news, Oklahoma’s Little League Softball team is in the national tournament. They could come into the semi’s/finals, as the top-seeded team. We may get to watch them on ESPN2 today and ESPN tomorrow. The games are televised, I just have to remember. 🙄 I should probably put a reminder in phone’s calendar.
Waking up at 5 or 5:30 every day after a restless night usually means that I’m nostly conked out by 9 p.m. See my comment above about age. I fall asleep during the ball game and therefore don’t manage to check out other shows on TV. I only mention it for something to say and tag. LOL
That’s pretty much my world at the moment. Nothing exciting. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing to brag about. And y’all don’t want me ranting about the state of the world. Trust me. When I can’t avoid the news, I end up wanting to b!tc# slap a whole bunch of people who are too stupid to understand the implications of their previous actions.
I’ll just add this, you always need to be careful what you wish for. And to illustrate that thought, my sister from another mister, B.E. Sanderson is celebrating the birthday of her book WISH IN ONE HAND, which is book 1 in her Once Upon a Djinn series. The series is some awesome Urban Fantasy so dip your toes in for free and then grab the other 3 books in the series.
Have a great week all. What would you wish for?
