Weekends are wonderful:
I am grateful that light-induced headaches, no matter how crushingly nasty they may be by nightfall, are always gone by morning.
I'm also very grateful for sleeping pills. The sudden upsurge in temperature yesterday meant I wouldn't have had much sleep at all last night. But with the sleeping pill, I made it to 5:30 am, almost uninterrupted!
Got the Portal Page picture for 'Pranks' finished last night. Two down, three to go!
Yesterday's quote on my perpetual calendar was: "Great works are performed, not by strength but by perseverance." Samuel Johnson. That's always a pick-me-up, but even more fitting now, because...
I'm happy to still be making progress on 'Vigil,' even though it's feeling more and more like I'm Sisyphus, with that boulder of his getting heavier by the day as the late spring rise in light and heat saps me. Definitely past the half-way point now, and hopefully I can reach the end before that 'boulder' is too heavy to move!

Wow! Neat to hear that you are still making progress!
Your mom, I'm sure, has told you how incredibly hot it has gotten here just since Thursday... ugh. I'm definitely thanking God for good air conditioning!
Hope you have a nice weekend!
Feel like the little Engine that could, but I am! ;)
Yes she has! And then she ditched all you guys to roast and went off to beautiful, cool Lake Tahoe--the nerve of her! =) She just called me from sitting on the shore of the lake. I'm glad you have air conditioning, and I hope the heat breaks soon for you!
Thanks, you too!
