Hey Everyone! I'm too lazy to look up the week number. It was a busy week.
Unfortunately, not the busiest week for writerly stuffs. I got 858 words out on Justice Served Tuesday night, though, and I'm pretty proud of that. Just the two agents talking in the car. Frank learns Olivia is a closet Cajun and they discuss overcoming other people's perceptions. I liked how it came out.
I didn't read much this past week either.
Or get much activity in. I walked on Tuesday and then last night I watered all the gardens. Despite the lack of activity, I did lose two pounds, though. Weight: 179.6
The reason for so little writing, reading, or activity is that I started my full-time job on Wednesday. I'm loving it and the people are all very nice. Of course, it isn't easy. Not yet anyway. They've been so slammed and without good help for long enough that I was kind of tossed into the deep end. Good thing I can swim, eh? Now, it's just a matter of getting used to working 8 hours in a row, 5 days worth in a row, with most of that in a seated position. I feel like I can do it. And I feel like I can excel at all the tasks they're asking of me once I get the hang of things. Right now, the hardest part seems to be remembering to answer the phone as B, instead of my whole first name. This, too, will pass.
I do need to find a way to be active while working 8-hr days. Might be time to start working the exercise bike again. Twenty minutes in the morning before I go to work or after I get home should be doable. We'll see how that goes.
Last night, Mama Raccoon finally brought her babies to the yard. She has FOUR this year! Wow. That's more than she's ever brought. Her biggest litter was 3 and that was last year. And they're all so cute. I wish the light had been good enough to get some pics.
Lumpy brought her twins again. Also very cute. I think she's got a mixed set again - boy/girl. One is definitely larger than the other and I read somewhere that the larger fawn is almost always a buck. Now, we need to come up with names. I mean, her last fawns were 2 years ago and we named them Sonny and Sissy. Speaking of that, Sissy is so tame with Hubs now that he can walk within a few feet of her on the way to the food pans and she just stands there. Then she follows him the rest of the way so she can be the first to the food. She only does that with Hubs. She avoids me like the plague. And that's a good thing. It's not safe for her to be too friendly with humans. Especially during hunting season.
The neighbor I gave zucchini plants to last year started bringing us zucchinis this year. He planted 6 plants and he said that three of those are ours. We told him that wasn't necessary, but he insisted. Anyway, he's probably brought us like 20 zukes so far. I spent part of yesterday getting those shredded or sliced and put away. I'm playing with the idea of making pickled zucchinis. I've left about 6 to take to the office and see if anyone wants them. If they don't, I'll bring them home and shred or slice those, too. Tuesday, I finally made bread with the last bag of shredded zuke I had put back in the freezer.
I think that's about it. How are things in your worlds?
