Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Thursday April 9, 2015. The temperature is 51.5°F and the humidity is 75% at 4:30 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 with gusts of 0 mph. The sky is clear. I saw a bright waning gibbous moon and the Big Dipper when I stuck my head out this morning. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 75 today.
Yesterday was pretty uneventful. I woke up with a cold, hacking and sneezing. I didn’t feel bad, but nixed going to visit Mr. Siduri’s mom. No sense risking getting her sick. I did some writing and some reading and snoozed on the couch. I went to get breakfast and slept most of the day. I didn’t get a walk in. I probably should have.
Abominable telemarketer called and woke me up from my best nap, promising me hers wasn’t a sale call and she wasn’t a telemarketer. Uh-huh. The friendly little girl just had six non-personal questions to ask to see whether I qualified for a 70% rate reduction by going solar. If I had a dime for every time we got such a non-sales call from such a non-telemarketer… But I was half asleep and just decided to see where this was going. The first non-personal question was whether I was the homeowner. (If that’s a non-personal question, I hate to see what she considers a personal question.) I told her I wasn’t. (Technically, since we haven’t re-recorded the house deed yet, I’m not). The friendly little girl hung up on me. Ya just can’t please some people.
So. The critique group is tonight. I’m going for the first time. I’m nervous and I shouldn’t be. I’ve chose a section of Siegfried where he finds the gold but loses the ability to communicate with birds. It’s a little short. Or maybe I’ll add a bit. Or keep it short. Well, I have 12 hours to decide. The woman hosting the critique lives in a pretty area of town. Maybe I’ll leave an hour early and go for walk so I won’t be a bundle of nerves when I get there and be too exhausted to care when they rip my baby to shreds.
With regard to walking, I did nothing yesterday, bringing my total to 9.81 miles, which leaves me with a mere 90.19 miles to go in the SpringintoAction Challenge, with idea of walking 100milesin90days .
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy.
So. Writing schedule. Do all the stuff I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of days now, particularly the Examiner review:
1. Review The Ancient Mesopotamian City by Marc Van De Mieroop for Examiner
2. Continue Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil .
3. Spend an hour with Siegfried. And get the six copies ready for the critique group.
4. Review “La Pulchra Nota”
