Feels like the beginning, of what I am not quite certain.
This week was the first Monday I was not scheduled at my old job in over 5 years. Maybe that is what has me all weirded out. Anyway, I love my new job and the schedule so there you go.
I feel like I need to start my re-write and that has me all jittery and anticipatory inside. I am slightly excited and a little nervous, but it feels like I might get through it this time. The beginning keeps popping into my head...I just have to figure where I want to pick up, and I think I have worked out my issues with the character who was giving me fits. The pesky fairies will not let me rest until I tell their story and I am tired of fighting them, wicked, wondrous things.
Finally watched Walk the Line...it was marvelously done. I just love Johnny Cash and I thought all the players were outstanding.
My friend was deployed today. Left on a carrier for God only knows where. He is a good soldier and one tough article. The enemy will not be glad to see him arrive be assured. His wife is my friend as well, and they are expecting a baby in late January. Any thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
Also my grandparents' house is sold, officially closed today. Gone. No more Easter egg hunts, snow days, christmas sleepovers, walks to the creek, making salt dough Christmas ornaments with the cousins, family meals and birthdays...sleeping out in the 'big den'in sleeping bags to watch Willy Wonka and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. My grandparents lived in that house for over forty years. As I said...feels like changes are swirling round me like leaves on the wind.
On a completely unrelated note, it was a thousand degrees today and I am over it. It is FALL. Well, we are supposed to get storms and cool off tomorrow night so I will hope for cooler weather then.
I think I will bake a pie tomorrow.
