Yet again, I missed my post for Sunday. I had one half-written in my drafts queue waiting for the ROW80 update part, but…
Well, I spent yesterday pretty much in the car… over the Mohawk River and through many, many woods After some pleasantly busy holidays, we went out to Syracuse for a day trip to visit family: my grandfather in the nursing home (my! can that man scarf down Lindor Truffles), my grandmother at her house, and my uncle and his wife at their home. Oh, yeah, and a Wegman’s stop on the way home for the Boodle because… well, if you’ve ever shopped at the Wegman’s in Dewitt, you’ll understand.
It was a busy, but fun day. Dan even indulged my obsession with driving along rt 5 for a time instead of the Thruway so I could see some of the cool old farm houses and my latest “dream home”. (I can’t help but wish I could open this place as a writer’s retreat/B&B.)
I got some writing done in the car… most of it on my (now late) sponsor post. I didn’t get much writing done on Saturday because I was trying to catch up on my forensics class (I’m behind again!). *sighs*
As far as my goals are going… I count more successes than failures, but I wish I could find a bit of clear headspace to shift modes for my writing. Courting is suffering from a lack of attention. I’m not feeling a connection with any of characters, with my office space, with… well most of the things that give me mental peace at the moment. Yesterday, for all of its busy-ness actually helped a lot.
Here’s to a more peaceful Wednesday.
