Just Two More

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. ~Vita Sackville-West

Two more scenes.

That's all I need to finish for the sequel to "Kitchen Matches" to be complete. More, I've already sent it through a couple of CPs for crits on what was there and polished it up.

Two more.

Why is that so hard?



My dog is going to peel her skin off. This morning, she couldn't even walk to the door, her back legs were twitching with each step in the need to scratch. We gave her a bath with medicated shampoo and two kinds of soothing leave on spray and it helped for a while. Last night, though, she woke me up several times scratching. And she has a big, red welt on her shoulder.

I've never wanted it to freeze early before, but I'm kinda pulling for one good hard freeze. Then in can warm up again.


No, I didn't feel the earthquake yesterday -- we were driving, and I expect that hid it from us. My SIL felt it pretty significantly, as did others around here. Poor folks down in that area! Hurricane Irene is supposed to come through, too. God's not pleased with that area right now.

Of course, Irene is supposed to hit US, too. So if I'm offline, it's cuz I lost power folks. We're pretty far inland, though, so hopefully it'll just be heavy rain and a little wind.



You Are a Pretzel

You are reliable and dependable. You can be counted on, through thick and thin.

You enjoy relaxation and quiet. You don't have a need to make things exciting.

You are comforting and stable. You know what you do best, and you stick to it.

You prefer a steady life, but you have been known to add some spice when things get routine.

That's about right!

I am so happy to hear your writing news! WOO HOO! I'm sitting here smiling. :)

Two more scenes--good for you!

So sorry about the dog. :(

We're supposed to get heavy rain and winds, too. I hope it's not too hairy.

Wishing you a peaceful day.

Good luck with Irene. Tell her she can spit some of her water at us.

Hope your power comes on soon.

OOh, only two more scenes? You Can Do It! I have faith you can get those two scenes written!

Irene was supposed to hit us and now they're saying it's moving further out. I don't think they actually know what the storm is going to do and are guessing at this point.

Poor Dakota. I've been there. Can she take benedryl? I don't blame you for not wanting to put her on the steroids. Those things are scary.

I hope you have a nice day!

Poor Dakota!!!

I hope Dakota gets some relief soon.

You Are Nachos

You are a cohesive force - able to bring many people together for a common cause. You are a uniter.

You love all sorts of things, and you have a very open mind. You like to understand why people love the things they do.

You are spirited and fun loving. You don't take yourself too seriously, and you know how to let loose.

You take things one day at a time, and you do your best to live in the moment. You don't like to get too carried away.

This is pretty accurate.

Hope your day was a good one.

Oh no, I hope Irene doesn't hit you. Good luck with that. Hope Breeann is doing well.
