So, as I said, I had a BUSY day today–not helped by the fact that it started at zero dark thirty when Sunshine began hoarking on the bed. I shoved him off in the dark, but not before he had ralphed all over my side of the bed. What fun!

I finally got back to sleep for a little while, but all too soon it was time to get up and moving.    9:30 is early for a Saturday, right?

I had a message already from Jim asking me a question about the story I sent him yesterday, and I told him he was nuts for expecting me to answer anything I got at 6:30 in the morning — especially on Saturday!

Off to Georgetown to meet the lovely Deb Grimsley for lunch, which was fabulous. We have such fun together. 🙂

Then to the Mystery Readers meeting, which was short and sweet with only 5 people there. Two of us went down to the Red Poppy Coffee Co. on the lower floor of the library to chat a little longer, and I was very good and had water. I SOOO wanted a soda, but after onion rings for lunch, I didn’t dare.

Next up was a trip to Cedar Park for the Steampunk LARP, which–sadly–didn’t happen. The poor woman who has been trying to start this game can’t get anyone to participate, so we sat around and had a nice visit, but no game. I was disappointed, but it did get me home by 8:00, which was refreshing. I was tired!

But, gentle reader, do not think that I shirked my writing duties today. No, sir, I did not. I started a new short story in a church parking lot when I was too early to go to Wendy’s house for the game on arrival in Cedar Park. I only had my tablet with me to work on. First time I’ve actually tried to write anything of substance on it, and I think it worked surprisingly well. Ever since I installed the Swiftkey apps on my phone and tablet, I’ve had a lot easier time typing on both.

So, recapping:


Today I cleaned ― changed the bed 😛

Today I weighed ― 185.2 — AGAIN! argh!

Today I wrote/revised ― beginning of new short story


And I will leave you with a photo I took rambling about Georgetown today:



I could have taken it without the branches — in fact, I did take one without the tree, but I like the effect.  Tomorrow, lovelies!
