Stephanie flies back home today. Moo Shoo and Gus Gus (her amazingly cute cats) miss her. I’ve enjoyed our time together. We cooked supper together last night. I chopped what was needed and she cooked. She made a shrimp stuffed flounder, Parmesan creamy rice, sweet peas, stuffed crab and a salad. It was delicious.
After I drop her at the airport it will be back to routine for me. I’ll be heading in to work. I’ll go back to looking at my long to do list and figuring out which will be my next task. There are so many to choose from it won’t take long for me to settle on one or three.
Most likely I’ll be focusing on production of the next poetry book – Moments in Spirit. I am also working on editing the second in the fantasy series. I have so many decisions to make sometimes I feel like I can’t make one more decision or my head will explode. Since that would be messy and probably slow down the entire process I try taking things one at a time.
My foot still twinges when I spend too much time with it down so I’m trying to take it easy and do as much as possible in the recliner. This does make life difficult because I use two screens when I’m writing and doing a lot of production tasks. However, it is better that I work with one screen than make my foot worse.
I’m going to miss Stephanie, her humor, her quiet assurance – pretty much everything about her. But we both have to go back to the demands of life. Her cats are probably going to scold her severely for deserting them for a week.
