*muppet flail* How can it be May? Where is Spring?!? I just turned off the heater–AGAIN–yesterday. Whee! Been a wild ride and May is supposed to be our crazy weather month. At leasat we got some rain last week. Every drop helps.
Writing. There was a very tiny little bit. I did manage an Honorable Mention on the Thursday Threads flash fiction challenge last week. Sadly, the snippet–which will appear on Wedneday Words this week, was set in Ariel’s book. Yeah. Iffy has spring fever. Or maybe hayfever. Anyway, I’ve basically been piddling around with CROSSFIRE and I need to get over that $h!+ like right now! No excuses. Just do it. Yada yada. Getting back into the swing of writing is sooo not like getting back on a bicycle. Or maybe it is, if you wobble around a lot.
Sports is a mixed bag. There was supposed to be a Stormy soccer game Saturday but it was canceled due to all the rain last week. That was good because Only and Stormy ran the Run to Remember Memorial 5K and the Kid’s Run on Saturday morning. They both ran their personal bests, shaving something like 10 secends off ther times from last year. So proud of them! My OSU Cowgirls split 2-1 with Texas Tech. Cowgirls run-ruled the first game 10-1 in the 6th inning, lost the second 4-3 in extra innings (after leading 3-0) and then run-ruled the third game 8-0 in the 5th. Go figure. The same with my Cards. They started out the season like gang-busters but they are skidding right now. Gives me a big ol’ sad. 😟
Books is a better topic. I got into Shelly Laurenston’s Pride series mode. I love her humor and the way she portrays her shifters. I took a break in the middle to listen to Ilona Andrew’s newly released dramatized version of MAGIC BITES, the first book in her Kate Daniels series. Big fan of this wife and husband writing team and their various series. The dramatized version was interesting but since I could get it from Hoopla to listen free, I didn’t spend an Audible credit. I might eventually. We’ll see. The dramatized version seems shorter and I noticed that it was adapated by someone other than the Gordons (Ilona and Andrew). Anyway, back to the Pride with glee and giggles. I’m only 6 books behind on my reading challenge now. The way I go through this series, I’ll be caught up and ahead in no time.
There’s not much else going on ’round here. Today is Wallyworld and then LG and I will likely hit the tag agency to get his tag updated on the new truck. I need to BICHOK all week. My royalty revenues are sucking big time and I sort of like eating, as do the critters. Luckily, this will be a cheaper week (though it’s hard to tell due to freaking inflation! Thanks, Joe 🙄 ) because I restocked all the critter foods last week. Soccer was moved to this coming Saturday so no siren test and no Alvarado’s Mexican for lunch. That gives me a big ol’ sad too! It’s been 3 months. Thanks, soccer. (Kidding. A little, anyway.) And, once again, the best intentions of actually writing. We’ll see. At least the weather is supposed to be more May-like. How’s life in your world?
