Recent delights:

     Ended up taking a little detour on my walk from the bus stop Monday afternoon. Reason being, I spotted an itty bitty baby turtle crawling along the side of the street! So I picked him up and walked him to the nearest pond, a trip he would very likely have not managed on his own, with roads to cross and slopes to climb. It was a treat to set him down on the shoreline and watch him walk into the water. Brought back memories of Thalion and Harma from my turtle days, years ago. Anyway, all I had was my crappy cell phone camera, but I had to get a photo to show everyone how small he was.

     Work has been interesting lately, with a bunch of folks from another department using our secured area to spend hours sorting out 70+ different types of documents for upcoming Kofax configuration work. One nice thing is that they answer the doorbell for each other, so I don't have to get up and do it all that often.

     Despite not making extra progress with book 5 verbal edits or regular editing this weekend because of all the flooding fun, I am still quite pleased with my progress. If I make tonight's verbal editing 'quota,' I will only have two chapters and the epilogue left, yay! Also pleased with how my last book 5 reward is coming along; it's so nice to get progress shots from the artist and have fun anticipating the final results.

Too bad they do not stay little so you could keep him.

They're so adorable when they're that small. But I remember how much work it was to clean the tank every week when I had turtles...
