Recent treats:

     The blessing of seeing a rainbow, not just one evening, but two evenings in a row! Friday night, and then Saturday night. Saturday's was not so high, but it was gorgeous to watch, and flared out beyond the usual color span for a little bit. I stood in the cat room with my nose to the window and just enjoyed it, while rain flashed down through the sunlight like shards of crystal. Gorgeous!

     I am also grateful for tornado alarms, since shortly after Saturday's rainbow, they went off. I'm grateful I live in a place where I can hear them, and grateful to have them, since my own tornado '6th sense' wasn't at all disturbed on Saturday. It was both amusing and relieving to hear the newscasters trying to calm us down, as everybody was still on edge after what happened in Hugo six days earlier.

     I'm very glad to have finished 'Vigil' at last on Sunday evening. At 17,000 words, it comes in as a rather long short story, but thankfully not a novella.

     And since I was late in crossing the finish line with 'Vigil' Sunday evening, I saved my junk food celebration binge for tonight, over a movie. YIPPEE!

Congratulations on finishing 'Vigil'! It shan't be looming over you anymroe now! *happy, thinks this is a Good Thing*

And you lucky, lucky person for rainbows... Although we had thunder without the rumbling which means I could watch it without freaking out. ^-^ Glad to hear that this tornado doesn't seem to have caused damage! (Unless it was just that the alarms went off. We get air-raid alarms every month to test if they work.)

Ooooooh, yes, I am so happy to not feel desperate to get it done before I stop for the summer or having dangling until autumn. That. Feels. So. Good! =) *hugs*

Er...what's 'thunder without the rumbling'? Do you mean lightning?

I think...that maybe the storms (which were somewhat strong) may have scared some people into thinking they saw a tornado and reporting it. Not sure. There certainly was a potential for a real tornado, but I don't think we actually got any. *has been too rushed to follow local news*

And yes, we have our tornado alarms go off the first Wednesday of every month around 1:00 pm. Heaven forbid a real tornado ever come then!

Goodness! From rainbow to tornado, it sounds rather rollar-coastery. I hope there'll be more of the former and less of the latter.

Congratulations on the story.

Hope you enjoy the movie!

Me too! That would be very nice. At least the forecast sounds like just rain for the next few days and no storms until Friday or so.

Thank you! Feels good to not have it hanging over me anymore...now I just need to edit. =P

I did. =)

It was a 'Llao day' today, all grey and gloomy. I'm glad for the coolness!

I had onion rings and mozzerella sticks and chips, num num num (after a salad, so it wasn't completely junk food! ;)

I hope your week is going well!

Very much a blessing! =)

It's just been gloomy and threatening today, maybe a few showers tomorrow. Thunderstorms in the forecast starting Thursday, and a warming trend. I am enjoying this!

It was indeed!

Just wanted to ask if you will be around tonight so we can talk memory cards. Been getting my brain overloaded with various types, brands, sizes, speeds, pros and cons, shipping, etc, so I figured it would be easier to just talk through it than try to create another spreadsheet.

Let me know when works for you!
