July 11, 2010
I woke up this beautiful Sunday morning with the feeling that I had forgotten something. As I pondered in the weird combination of pictures and itty bitty small words that passes for English in my brain before the caffeine was added, it hit me. I never did Friday's update here! What can I say, when weeks shift and flex to the degree that last week did, sometimes things slip through the cracks and get lost. I am here now though, and I suppose that's what is going to have to matter.
So the update goes as follows: The important weeds - the ones that were choking out the good mood in my head - are gone. The battle still rages for the flowerbeds, walkway and vegetable garden although I have conquered a large amount of them.
Sketches have begun on the new addition to the blog I have planned. I'm wanting to wait until I have a decent backlog of them to add it in. I may actually wait until September when everyone shifts out of summer mode and might be looking for something a little new.
I also admit that I didn't get to the critiques. That was the plan for yesterday as I accompanied my friend Theresa Flerx on a day trip. We met with Sandy Tritt with Inspiration for Writers who Theresa is having edit her manuscript. I had planned for a block of time where I would need to entertain myself while they discussed Theresa's book, but as it worked out that discussion flowed around lunch and a very enjoyable tour of Parkersburg, so no free time happened. Good thing I have a little time left!
The outcome is that although I made a LOT of forward progress, I don't get any new flowers this week. This has been happening quite a bit lately. I think it might have something to do with summer. Smaller list needed? I hate to downsize my personal expectations. I think I'll just take what comes, accept when I don't quite reach the goal and cheer when I do.
See you tomorrow with what comes next!
