Tonight I am grateful that I...

     Survived the long weekend. Sunday afternoon-evening and Monday morning were especially rough; worst bout in a while.

     Got to savor the beauty of a not-quite-full moon rising over the trees Sunday before church that evening. So gorgeous!

     Finally got my 'exhausted' avatar finished. It's only been leering at me from my projects list for over a year now, and I've certainly had much cause to use it! Of course I like the bigger version better...

     Finally watched 'The Magnificent Seven' that my parents loaned me. Westerns aren't generally my thing, so I was pleased to enjoy it more than I expected.

     Made some progress with writing! On Saturday I started my third story for this month (fourth if I include the gift dialogue). 'Saenna,' (or 'Sheltering Wings' for the proper title) which is pretty much smack in the middle of my 'What's cooking...' page. Nice little stretch too, because 'Hened,' 'Embers,' and 'Gift' were all pretty dialogue-heavy, the easiest thing for me to write. 'Saenna' and the next story I want to attack ('Allegiance') have hardly any at all--so great 'exercise'!

Hope things get better for you real soon.
Your exhausted Avatar sure fits the description.

I am glad you enjoyed the movie. It is one of my favorite westerns.
So glad about the writing progress.

Have a good productive Monday.

Me too!
Glad to hear it. =)

I think I'll have to watch 'High Noon' again some day, as that's the other one I like.
Me too! I'm glad I wasn't too down Monday evening to get a fair bit written.

You're losing track of the days, retired lady! Tuesday!

The avatar is gorgeous! Very expressive indeed.

I hope you make sure to take time to look after yourself, however you might envisage that. You deserve a reward after making it through such a tough time!

Heh, this weekend was supposed to be my 'have fun and relax' long weekend. Apparently I still do better with workdays.

I likes the big version. I had to compromise anyway, because if I had his whole body in there, then the eyes were almost too small to see!

I found myself thinking about it this morning. A good thing when a film gives me things to ponder afterward and it's not just forgettable 'fluff.' =)

Ooh, congrats and good luck with the essay-finishing!

*hugs* Hope things look up for you, hun. And that avatar is stunning and very fitting indeed.

Take care. I'm glad to hear that the writing isn't deserting you and hope it'll help bring some comfort at least.

Me too! And thanks! So nice to have it off the 'to do' list.

It does indeed, so long as I'm not too down to write. =) Work should cheer me up, so long as it doesn't wear me out too much!

I love that icon! Poor little hyarmi...he looks absolutely knackered. I want to put a pillow under his head or something...

Thanks! I'm happy to hear the intended 'mood' comes across!
