A good holiday

I have a large international following. In case you missed it on all the social media, today is a holiday in the USA.

Old What’s Her Face* took the grandkids to the water park. At some point, a man decides what isn’t a good time and bows out. That’s what I did today. There was a time when such things were fun, but I’m just not into it any more.

I decided to budget my alone time on three projects. I need to keep moving forward on getting Arson edited. I could probably get close to finished this weekend, but I’m being sociable despite bowing out of the water park.

I also want to spend some time on act one of my next story. I’m still trying out names and have changed one about five times. Nothing seems to fit for this character — yet. I’ve added a bunch of photos to my story board.

I’m also spending some time with Conor Kelly and the Four Treasures of Eirean. I’m just getting started, but I’m really enjoying it so far. Check out this book by Ali Isaac. She’s a fun blogger too, and posts about some really interesting topics.

This afternoon is going to be a big barbecue, followed by setting off all our illegal fireworks. Idaho is one of those places where it’s perfectly legal to sell all kinds of fireworks, and legal to buy and own them. It’s just illegal to set them off. I suppose the Legislature thought we were all collectors.

I don’t feel too bad. Our entire neighborhood sounds like a war zone every night for a week before the fourth and two weeks after. Of course the holiday gets the most action. This is going to be a good time with a large chunk of our family in attendance.

Whatever you’re up to, I hope you’re having a great time. For the rest of you Americans out there happy Independence Day.

  2. Have a good holiday! I am going to be writing today. I already re-vamped my resume, applied for many jobs and read most of the blogs that I am subscribed.


  3. Happy Independence Day!


  4. I’m now thinking about that episode of Malcom In The Middle with the firework…

    Sounds like a fun weekend! Makes me die that its legal to buy fireworks but not to set them off lol! How mad is that?!! Over here in Ireland its illegal on both counts, but living so close to the border with Northern Ireland, where it IS legal, there is a fair amount of trafficking… ahem! Altbough not at this time of year, it has to be said.

    Oh and thanks for the mention… you’re reading my book, thank you! That makes me nervous. I do hope you like it!


    • So far the book’s awesome. Might not finish this weekend, because of all the company. I always get nervous when someone’s reading one of my stories too. You have no reason to worry.


  6. Have a great Fourth and a wonderful weekend! 😀


  7. Hope you had a good fourth! Have you thought of asking us lot for name suggestions for that character? You could post a bit of a character description and see what we come up with, you never know!
