Most important news first! The keys have been found! Why they were in my gym bag, when I never take Steve’s car to gym. . .
Secondly, in reference to the title of today’s blog post — we here in Central Maine are in the midst of a wind storm. The West Wind is smacking us pretty steadily with winds around 35 miles per hour, with the occasional 55 mph gust, just to confuse the power lines. I will note that today is bright and sunny and blue, which is NOT the kind of weather we’ve been used to seeing around here.
We continue to improve, health-wise. I’ve done the upfront for the taxes; now I need to wait for paperwork, and fill out the accountant’s form. Which has changed since last year, to the point where I may need a tutorial. But — the taxes, at least, are mostly under control.
Not so, the rest of the to-do list. I gotta tell you, I look at the to-do list and despair. I have an interview to do; I have files to continue to pull together for distribution to either an archive or a dumpster; I have at least two short stories to write — it might be three. Or four. I have notes here. . .somewhere — and I have, yes, a book to write. Now on extended deadline, sigh.
Tomorrow! Ah, tomorrow! is the Official Book Day for Carousel Seas — which has already had an eArc Day and a eBook Day, so you wouldn’t think I’d be excited about Paper Book Day, but. . .I am. I feel like I ought to at least bake Kate a cake, and, yanno, make a Big Noise. But neither of those is really very likely to happen.
Today, I started the laundry. I may, honestly, have to rethink that, considering that the wind has knocked the power out, briefly, twice, now.
And, Canon keeps sending me these notices, tempting me with the New Powershot — the newest with a 50x zoom, and. . .I really don’t need 50x zoom to take pictures of the cats. I mean, I know that. But — shiny.
In health news, I continue to feel better. Honestly, there’s got to be an upper limit to this, doesn’t there? How sick do I have to have been that I’m continuing to feel better?
Well. The to-do list isn’t going to do itself. I’ll concentrate on the interview this afternoon.
Hope your afternoon is decisive and profitable.
