A nice gratitude list for today:
What a supremely delicious day! It got down to 40 F/4 C overnight, and only up to 59 F/15 C during the day. It felt like I was on the North Shore at Grand Marais or something. PARADISE!!!
Happiness is three fresh books from the library, after running out of my last library book on Sunday. Those should keep me busy until I can pick up more next week.
The sardonic amusement of spotting the idiocy of Geren sheathing his sword twice in a row in Ch 19 of book 4. I'm glad I don't pull stunts like that very often, but it makes the editing labor worth it when I catch something ghastly like that.
Since I was out of library books today, I passed the bus rides reading a magazine from the International Wolf Center. There were a bunch of fascinating articles in there about the Isle Royale Wolf/Moose study (if one knows much ecology at all, one can't have missed hearing about this at some point). Anyway, 2008 is the 50th year of that ongoing study. Simply amazing.
After banging my head against the wall in futile frustration the entire holiday weekend...I actually managed some progress on 'Vigil' tonight and got myself set up for the (ghastly) last scene. Whew, I might finish this before the summer stop after all!
Heheh, Geren is so good with his sword, he has to sheath it twice just to put it away! XD
And as always, congrats on the progress with the writing! So wonderful to see such after the dry spell you suffered through, when was it, last year? *shudders* Hope you never have to go through one like that ever again.
Sounds like the temperatures around here lately. Perhaps one day I'll convince you to migrate down here for the summer. :D
Productive times indeed on both the reading and writing front.
Did you end up spending your long weekend watching those movies you were planning to?
