Working, writing, and feeling hungry.

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a plate of one of your beautiful dished, Robin.

I'm sitting here on Sunday working. I'm trying to get invoices out and Sunday is so much quieter than the rest of the week.

I'm finishing an invoice, writing a little, reading some Anthony one shots, and starting the next invoice. Sure wish he'd talk to you again. ;-)

Even a postcard; Sudan; camel; sand; bang; lost; tired; thirsty; Mo...

Oh, wait. Mo is -your- furry baby. Such a doll.

And one of the things that keeps me going. Fun pics of cats that I can finally look at and not cry. I miss my writing friend:

Back to work. Hope all is well with you and that you're feeling better.


P.S. - Not Anthony, but I bet one of my characters can send that postcard. NaNoWriMo makes me a word whore. I'll steal anything from anywhere...even my own blog.

P.P.S. - I had no sooner written that I was hungry when my Dear One walked in with sandwiches and Red Bull. A trip next door to our new building to see what the magician who is our landscape contractor did yesterday. (Our lot keeps getting bigger as he clears away two years of untouched vines and weeds.) A trip down the hall to the restroom. The final gulps of the 12 ounce Red Bull and I'm off working again. Three more invoices to go and then home.

Our new building

We're expanding.

The building needs a lot of love and the sound of laughing children. Here are some older pics of the building. No one has loved it for two years.



This isn't quite how it looks now, but it'll look great again. I'll take some now shots later.


As I expected, most of my NaNo writing is going to have to be on the weekend. I fell asleep in the chair last night.
Just wanted to say "Hi." I'm going to go grab about a half hour of writing time.
Hope all is well with you.

Typing along.

I have to make a lot of progress during the weekends. Writing during work days is going to be challenging. I'll probably be lucky if I get 100 words a day.

I'd write at lunch, but we don't usually have lunch.

We'll see how it goes.

Work calls later today. We bought the building next door to our leased space. We're expanding, not moving. The place needs more work than you could believe. It's like rehabbing a condo, except it has 3,600 sq ft.

The water is being turned on today. I have to go see if there are leaks.

We bought it at public auction since the previous owner lost his businesses and all his property. Don't feel badly for him, though. He was selling counterfeit art so he deserved to feel the pain. Karma, as they say, is a bitch.

He hadn't done any maintenance on the place for over two years. He was trying to keep his wife from getting anything of value from him during their nasty divorce. She ended up getting $500,000. Who knows how much she actually received after lawyers and taxes.

Back to NaNo. I may have to work out a way to incorporate my blog posts into my writing count. I bet one of my main characters keeps a blog. ;-)

Hope you're having a great day.
