Today was my flex day for the week. I had a lot to do, and feel like I accomplished everything I needed to. My daughter went to work early, and her cat cried behind her bedroom door. I had a choice to make here. Either listen to the cat yowl all day, or let him out and keep an eye on the dogs around her kitten. I told her to leave her door open so Jackson the cat could come and go. The dogs are getting close to understanding they aren’t supposed to be upstairs, so it gives him kind of a base.
All good. Maybe the dogs will hang out with him and leave me a bit of peace.
Yeah, didn’t quite work that way. All three of them decided to share my chair and workspace. Otto is the one with his back to the camera. Oh, and cats like to type – who knew? I suppose I should be impressed, I can’t even get the dogs to read my books. This cat wants to write one.
Still, I got some things done that didn’t have a lot to do with my keyboard. I started the process of waking Tituba the sourdough starter up. I also broke in the new oven. (Don’t get excited, I toasted a bagel under the broiler.)
I also paid the bills after I got a few cat wranglers home from work. This is one project I didn’t get finished during my trip to Nevada. Now it’s done.
On the writing front, I got the shtick out for a Lisa Burton Radio interview. We’re still working on it, but it feels productive. If you’re interested, Lisa needs guests. I’ll have time to work on them over the weekend if you catch me this week.
I also managed to add words to my current project. There weren’t a lot of words, but the characters hid some bodies, and a new character started making a shrunken head. Oh, and they recovered some old equipment that was hidden away, and it includes a couple of small black powder mortars. We’ll be blowing things up in no time.
I still have to get one more central character into the story, and she’s coming soon. I just have to figure out how they’re going to come across her.
Back to the office tomorrow, but I feel like it was a pretty good day.
