Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Wednesday May 20, 2015. The temperature is 57.3°F and the humidity is 87% at 5:39 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 with gusts of 2.2 mph. It was overcast when I stuck my head out. No stars whatsoever. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 69° today.
I have a load of wash going now and a second one ready to go. Made a batch of cookies yesterday. We had a plumber come out. Mr. Siduri was washing a small load of laundry when a whole bunch of water ended up on the garage floor. After some investigating, he realized it the line from the washer was clogged. He unsealed a clean-out that had not been unsealed for at least as long as he’s been living here. It took the plumber several tries to get the clog not broken up but moved farther down the line. It was an expensive morning.
Tomorrow morning will be my first trip back to the dentist for my first crown. Oh, joy.
The “Dark Shadows” DVDs I put up on eBay have a couple of bids, so at least I’m spared the humiliation of having to go back to the eBay store and pick them up. That’s a relief.
Mr. Siduri is continuing with his painting project. It’s looking quite nice.
Sunday, we’re having friends over for a Memorial Day barbecue. That’s always fun.
On June 3, I will have been at Examiner for a year. I thought I’d like to try to get 50 reviews up by that time. It sounds paltry, and it is, but that means five more reviews between now and June 2. I think I can do it, but that means ignoring a lot of stuff.
And I want to start shopping around a short story I wrote last year again. I’ll bring it to the critique group.
Time to get to work.
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
1. First, spend an hour with Siegfried
2. Goal of eight Examiner reviews before June 2. Three down, five to go. Write one more today.
3. Read and review “How to Use Public Relations.”
4. Read and review a selection of classic Greek poetry
5. Add two entries to the blog.
