My daughter just burst through the door, changed her clothes, grabbed a couple cups of water and is heading off to the barn to look after the horses before going to Toronto… the why is irrelevant.
But, at the last minute, she runs back upstairs and comes back down carrying a… sweater! It is currently 37 degrees here and feels close to 40! It’s HOT outside… which is great, but it’s HOT. Her boyfriend asks her if she nuts… she says it could snow in a half hour with our weather!
I pointed out that not even in MY wildest imagination, which has produced a dozen novels, would that, or could that, actually happen!
Our minds like to wander. When we’re angry, sad, disappointed, thrilled, excited, joyful, disgusted, horrified we all have stories and ideas that go through our minds… we think of things to tell people, we have conversations in our heads. We are all storytellers even if we think we’re not.
I have managed to get one of the four assignments completed and submitted. That felt good but very little is actually feeling good today. I’m very emotional for a wide array of reasons. Today is my last day of vacation… Monday I’m back to work. With the events of yesterday I wish I could gain more time.
I haven’t managed to get to my own work this week and I haven’t even managed to get the copy delivered to the person who wanted to read it. I’ve really fallen behind.
Additionally I’m still angry and sad about what happened to the new vehicle yesterday and… well, I’m feeling pretty lonely today and I don’t think that’s going to pass anytime soon.
Maybe it will encourage me to get back to my murder story and get the edits/proofreads done and move a step closer to finishing it!
