Where was I?
Planted the rosebush (Blanc Double De Coubert Rugosa; call-name Colbert) on the afternoon of Friday the 13th. It was supposed to have been first thing in the morning, but there were a Truly Stupid number of telephone calls to cope with.
After playing in the dirt, and showering, and sharing a leisurely lunch with Steve, I returned to entering corrections to the manuscript of Liaden Universe® Constellation Volume Four, and Steve took up reading the manuscript of Accepting the Lance (insofar as there is a manuscript, &c &c).
Yesterday, I had some errands to run in town. Note to self: No More Grocery Shopping on Saturday, especially in summer. Ghod, what a zoo. Also, you’d think cold cuts were nectar straight from the heavens. Six deep at the deli section. I am not making this up.
Also yesterday, I washed my hat, which seems to have come through the experience in perfect shape. For values of shape including a wide-brimmed cotton hat specifically made to be rolled up and stuffed into a backpack.
Today, I need to do a Blankie Run; restock the Hummer Bar; get some business paperwork in order; enter the last 57 pages of correx into Constellation Four. . .and then it’s back to Accepting the Lance. After Constellation Four leaves for Baen this evening, I’ll only have two writing projects on my plate — Lance, and a short story for Release the Virgins. It’ll be almost like a vacation. . .
And I’m guessing it’s now time to get on with that work. I have four cats in my office, and they clearly expect something to get going pretty soon. . .
Hope everyone is having a pleasant weekend.
