As I was writing this title, I remembered a coffee shop which, sadly, is no longer in existence. I thought it a very clever name for a coffee shop. I hope they moved on to greener pastures and weren't put down in their prime.
But I digress...
This weekend was wet, but good. It has been raining off and on for the past week and a half in the South. I like it. I love stormy weather and rain gets my creative juices flowing like no other weather can. I love when weekends seem to last longer than their actual two days. For one reason or another, this weekend did. Though I spent the majority of my time relaxing and enjoying the company of some friends for dinner, I was able to get a few things done. Nothing like starting a new project or three to make you feel like you really are on your way to making your life a closer reflection of what you dream it will one day be.
If you read my Woolgatherings blog, you already know I've got my query up and running for my fantasy trilogy. I also started a new story yesterday which I'm really excited about. I won't be able to give it my full attention until those queries are out and on their way to agents, but at least I know where my next literary trek will take me. Also, I'm plugging away at a few little crafty things for my go at a small business (which I do hope to have up and going by September 1 on etsy). Not sure how much I'll have, but it's just a way to keep my hands moving and my mind creating. It's also a way to keep my sanity! I have a few things up on my Polypodium blog (which just happens to be the name of my little business). If you're interested, pop on over there and see what's happening! I hope to have a few more pictures up by the end of this week. I'll give you fair warning: that blog is in it's humble beginnings so don't pass judgement too quickly!
Whew! All this and I just was asked if I could work until 5 instead of getting off at my usual time at 3. Honestly, I wanted to answer no, but, the more hours, the more cash, and the more cash, the quicker we can get out of debt. The quicker we're out of debt, the quicker we leave La Garage. As tired as the idea already makes me, the thought of having my own abode in a year's time (our self-imposed goal) makes it worthwhile!
Here's to staying busy (and keeping sane)!
