It has been a busy week. I’ve been crocheting a bunch of things – finished a gift for a friend, bib, and worked on a baby afghan. I’ll be making a few more bibs today. One of Vicki’s friends wants some and one of my faculty is pregnant.
Today I spent most of the morning driving for the first time in six weeks or so. My foot is swollen but not too severely and it is slightly painful. This is a huge improvement from the last six weeks.
My gout has subsided enough that walking isn’t a painful thing. I’ve spent the week watching tv and reading. I finished the latest JD Robb book. It was pretty good. I’ve missed writing though. I feel like I’ve missed out on a good friend all week.
Vicki slipped and fell on the ice. She sprained her ankle, banged up her arm. She’s in don’t touch me and don’t move mode. Gotta love winter…
Today the plan is to get ready for Craft day tomorrow. I think I know what I’m going to work on. It is going to be one of three things. Hopefully I’ll decide before tomorrow. You just never know what mischief I’ll get up to.
I’m also hoping to have time at my keyboard with my story. I think I have the next chapter thought out. It is just a matter of getting it down on paper. I might even have two chapters in my head which is always a problem because I get to a point where the story takes over my dreams and all I can think about is the story.
Ken and I will be running an errand or two today. After the errands are done it will be back here to be cozy and warm in the house. Fireplace is going non-stop to battle the really cold temperatures we are having. There is snow drifting down but I think we are only supposed to get a dusting. It will be a good day to be home.
With luck, my gout will let me sit at the computer and get lots of writing done. Yes I’m likely obsessed with it but I’m going with that is okay because it isn’t hurting anyone accept the characters I kill off. So far those characters are bad guys but part of me is debating the death of one or two of my good characters in order to move the story along. This has to be done carefully. I don’t want to kill off just anyone and it has to be appropriately done. The right character at the right time in the right way. It will be a challenge to work out the details. I don’t think it will be in the next two chapters. I’ll have to see where they take me though.
Onward with my day I guess…
