Two days...the gap is gapping.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010 - It was a calm day at the start. Worked on my novel. Did not hear back from the publisher. Got the trash together and Kent got Halloween colored (orange and purple) lights strung up outside. Talked to a nice friend on Yahoo. Got a message from Jonathan that he wanted to talk so we talked last night. Started out good ended on a sour note.

Thursday, October 28, 2010 - Got another message from Jonathan this morning. Wanting to talk this evening. Will be working on my novel most of the day. That's the plan for today. We'll see how the "talk" goes tonight.

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Gee, imagine this, no big gap in posting. lol.

Did a follow up note with the publisher yesterday (October 25) that I have a novel out to for consideration. Haven't heard anything back yet (not that I expected to). Spent a lot of time working on the next entry into the series. One in print (Snow Flower), one at the publisher for consideration, and the one I'm working on. I have several more ideas for that series as well.

Jonathan and I are no longer speaking to each other. It was a hard decision to make but I made it. Heather and I went to Blacklick Park for fresh air and "blowing out of cobweb" time. It did improve my attitude. Live and learn. All is well today.

We are supposed to be in a severe storm watch as I type. They say winds of 50-60 miles per hour are possible. I can believe that. The wind is howling around the trailer and shaking the skirting. Just hope that big, old, leaning pine behind us doesn't decide to "drop" in.

Monday, October 4, 2010 - Went to meet a school friend that was in town for a vendor fair. He's from Fostoria, Ohio and we visited for about an hour. It was nice to see him. We've been talking on facebook for several months. The next time he comes to town he says he'll bring his companion so I can meet her. Worked on my novel the rest of the day.

Monday, October 11, 2010 - Clear Creek Park is very rugged terrain. I did manage to climb up a steep hill (with help from Heather) to see a lake that was there. Lake Ramona was my reward. Getting off the hill was a challenge but with Heather's help and a ton of help from Kent we made it down in one piece. Worked on my novel and a new project. Talked to Jonathan for three hours on Yahoo.

Tuesday - September 27, 2010

Friday - October 1, 2010

Worked on my novel. Went to Blacklick Metro park to bow off some steam. It was a nice cool, breezy, afternoon and so nice to be out of the house without any distraction. Just Heather and I went, Kent opted to stay home. We had a late dinner then watched the DVD of the recent version of "Fame".

Saturday - October 2, 2010

Heather's on her way to a confest in Michigan. She and a friend are driving up and will be spending the night with friends. Kent and I are kicking around here. Last week was a little more stressful than I like, so I'm taking today and most of tomorrow chilling out. I'll do my laundry and some housecleaning to keep me otherwise occupied. Kent and I will have another at home movie night tonight. Not sure what we'll be seeing.
