A Difficult Day

All day Tuesday I felt as if I were trying to move through viscous liquid, both physically and mentally. Greenish glowy viscous liquid. Sort of like aloe gel but without the skin soothing effect.

Of course, in reality I was just tired and a little crabby, and not in the mood to work, and yet, I finished everything I’d planned to do, and managed to enjoy an afternoon of dark skies and rumbling thunder punctuated by the odd flash of lightning and softened by a steady, soaking rain.

We may or may not get more rain today, but even if we don’t I think I’m in a better mental place than I was all week.

I wrote another chapter of a fanfic today, and I’ve worked out some issues with the NOVEL so I know how to fix them, and just need to work diligently so I can have lots of time for personal writing this week and weekend.

Sometimes, the difficult days are the most rewarding.

Friday’s Feast (Catching Up)

I never did last week’s Friday’s Feast, so I’m catching up with this post, and later tonight / early tomorrow, you’ll see the new one.

How are you today?
Mostly good. The day started fabulously, but energy is waning, and my shoulders are tight, and I want to kill Bank of America.

Name 3 television shows you watch on a regular basis.
This changes as seasons change. Earlier this summer, I was watching:
Army Wives
Side Order of Life

but with all but the last on hiatus, and the last ending next week, it will change to:
Blood Ties (it returns on the 11th.)
Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style

What’s the scariest weather situation you’ve experienced?
There was a bad bad storm here earlier this year that ripped a tree out of our front yard – a mature plum tree – and did a whole bunch of other damage. It wasn’t quite a tornado, but almost. That frightened me. But only briefly.

Main Course
If you could wake up tomorrow morning in another country, where would you want to be?
Most people pick exotic locales, or major European locations. Me? I’m in the mood to hang out in Toronto or Montreal, so I’d have to say Canada.

What do you usually wear to sleep?
A scrunchie.
