Good stuff:

     We had some fun on Friday, the three of us who were all that remained for 'my side' of the department. I put a sign on the door, and we all went out to lunch to the Gopher Bar for Coney Islands. It was Dawn's first time (for both venue and food) and she really enjoyed it. Quite fun!

     It getting up past 90 F/32 C again today was great motivation to make my first batch of nice cold Emerald Soup for the summer (never did get around to it last summer). And it sure hit the spot!

     Best of all, plenty of art and writing progress today. Chapter 4 of 'Delarun' section 4 is DONE! I'm actually ahead of schedule! Two days left of my holiday weekend to tackle the comparatively short (and final) chapter 5. *bounces* I think that merits me some onion rings or something, heh heh...

Emerald soup? What's that? And right now I've got another 4-5 chapters written before I get to the scene I want to write - so I'm going to work hard and reward myself with the scene I'm so excited about and the character I love so much finally getting into the story...and some chocolate chip cookies when I finally get it written. *grin*

I sure know that feeling! 'Reward' scenes are a treat, and so are reward goodies! =D

Emerald soup is spinach, cream of chicken or mushroom soup, milk, and garlic in a blender. I grew up with it--it might be an acquired taste. I've the feeling I've shared the recipe with you before, but...I just know I've shared it a bit!

Have a great and productive rest of the weekend! =)

You might have. I think it sounds vaguely familiar. LOL My memory isn't the greatest these days.

Sounds like your weather is cooling off some.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Re: Way to go!!
Thanks!

I ended up having mozzerella sticks instead, as it was already 8:30 and the onion rings take longer. Maybe I'll have those TODAY... ;)
