Monday Flowers

(c) Silver James, 2013

I’m totally glad that last week is over and done.Tuesday was the 27th anniversary of the OKC Bombing. I’m on an upswing of emotions, despite totally vegging out yesterday. We had storms Saturday night and I’m always a little on edge. Sleep was light and the storm front and rain cooled off the temps. I turned off the AC and opened windows. The house cooled down and I was pretty darn comfy under the covers watching softball. I also have irises blooming. Big dark blue ones, like the one pictured here. Pretty. Also, my peony is getting bushy and the giant phlox are sprouting up. I ❤ flowers, especially the kind I don’t really have to baby because…totally have a black thumb. LOL

Speaking of, my OSU Cowgirls swept Texas. They played Friday evening, then there was a tornado warning so Saturday night’s game was postponed until yesterday. They played a doubleheader. OU swept Iowa State. My Cardinals won 2 of three against the Reds. They’re still leading the NL Central but it’s a tight race.

There was writing and revisioning done last week. Not much writing but some new words on CROSSFIRE. I thought I’d finished RESCUE MOON revisions but then I woke up with an idea and it’s taking more writing than I originaly anticipated but that’s a good thing. It means a longer story, right? Right!

We had lots of Stormy time last week, and much shuffling of cars when BaseBall Boy’s Jeep needed two rounds of repairs. Only and Stormy ran the Memorial 5K on Saturday (she beat her personal best by 30 seconds!) and then they turned right around and ran the 1.2 mile Kids Marathon, which is more of a fun run. Only ran that one with her camera to get candid shots for her job and then se was back for the full Marathon Sunday morning to get more photos. The Museuim and Marathon are clients of her agency. Proud of both of them. I could probably do a 5K in about the same time the good runners complet the full marathon in. 🙄

On that note, I’m off to Wallyworld for my weekly grocery run. We may or may not be grabbing Stormy after school. BB’s game schedule is a bit fluid at the moment. How are things in your world?

  1. Yay for vegging out and cooler weather. And for pretty flowers. Yay for your teams! Yay for some new words and for a lengthier book. Yay for Stormy time and congratulations to Only and Stormy for their runs. Take care and have fun at Wallyworld.

    Nothing much is happening here. They held the memorial for my aunt and all the Michigan family was there. It was a nice day with some good remembrances. Mom’s sympathy gift arrived – a hummingbird windchime, because my aunt was sort of like a hummingbird. Small, pretty, always zipping to and fro, and someone who would totally kick your ass if you crossed her. Today, now that the rain is done, I need to get back to work in the gardens.

    It’s a bitch when *those anniversaries* derail our lives, but you did the right thing by honoring your body’s need to grieve. You took a pause, now can move forward.
    We had lots of rain here last night, and the world is cool & sodden.
    Working on words for my 2 WIPs, and doing alpha-reading for a friend’s 1st draft, in anticipation of a full on edit later. YA-fantasy.
    Right now, the Edit-purr-ial Assistant is my coffee companion.
