August the 6th. So far, it's been six days in a row of writing and activity. Good start there. Now to keep this up. Yesterday, after spending the better part of the day crouched down over some spreadsheets, I so did not want to do anything, but I made myself sit down and write. Then when my hands got crampy, I made myself go for a walk. I will do this. See? I have a thing over on the right now to show my progress. Yay.
On the docket for today? Zucchini bread again. Some other neighbors are supposed to be bringing us tomatoes and peppers, and I'd like to have a loaf ready for them when they stop by. I can't have a garden - not with all the deer - so it's nice when neighbors bring us fresh produce. And I like to pay them back by presenting them with baked goods. Or maybe I'll make them oatmeal cookies and save the bread for the neighbor who brings us zucchinis. Hmm. I still have to make the bread because the zucchini is already defrosted, but... Hmm. I have to think on that.
I cut my hair again finally. It doesn't look bad. A little longer on the left than the right this time, but my head tilts to the right so it's not noticeable to anyone but me.
I have a note on my desk that says 'SSA waiting outside' (the next scene in CU), which keeps giving me pause this morning because even though I know SSA means Society for Sorceral Activity, my brain keeps defaulting to Social Security Administration. And I can't figure out why they'd be waiting outside. Derp.
One thing about having a new computer is that I keep having to add words to the dictionary I'd already added to the old computer's dictionary. There's probably a dictionary file somewhere on the old girl I could transfer to this one, but I'm lazy.
The fawns are accepting Hubs as part of the landscape now. When he went to feed this morning, a mom and her twins were munching on the lawn and they didn't even run away. In fact, one of the fawns approached him to see what he was doing. And then it thought better of it and backed off. Still, it's a pretty nice feeling for Hubs. Me? They at least don't run when I walk out of the house, as long as I don't walk toward them.
Okay, that's it for me today. What's on your radar?
