For me, yesterday did not happen. I awoke with a bad headache and the day passed with me on the couch, re-reading Keri Hulme's The Bone People, eating nothing but two bowls of rice, and feeling unwell. Finally, at about 7, the headache lifted. I watched a movie with the fella and then a movie on my own. (Parsley Days and Cold Comfort Farm). This morning I still have a ghost of a headache but will try and have a regular if a bit slow day.
We have sold the house! Oh, I suppose we aren't supposed to break open the champagne until the 3rd when we find out if their financing is good - or tomorrow night after the house inspector has come by - but I feel on the whole that we have sold it. And we have less than a month to move. I am very happy at this - only one family came to look at it - until Wednesday it had only been other Realtors. And we got what we wanted. I'm fairly gob-smacked at that - not that it isn't worth it - it is worth more - but that our luck seems to be turning. If you believe in such things. I don't generally but will welcome the feeling right now.
This morning early (sixish) my fella brought me to the living room window. Out in the front garden was a doe eating some of my flowers. So heavenly - her crazy tail flicking with enjoyment as she tucked in to what? I don't know - not the day lilies - they don't like them and not the hosta - oddly - the one I have just so they have something to eat that I don't care for. It doesn't matter. It was so very very nice to see it standing in our garden.
Today I am going to write a synopsis for my new work (Bright Angel) and see how it goes. I am still unsure of the climax so hope to loosen it up and see what is there. I will probably use the Hero's Journey to figure it as that is a tool I like. It is foggy here but it may burn off but I will not do anything to energetic at any rate - just putter about the house - thinking of what needs to be done.
So...I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday but here ya go - the day went walk-about and these are the fragments left to me.
