I am SO loving the new website. Now that this little diversion is done, I need to focus on Into Darkness. I’m not going to spend a whole post lamenting on all that needs to be done or things that have come up in the MS. Suffice to say each novel presents its own unique challenges and this one is no different. I’m still having a blast writing it – so that’s good. Now in other news the day job has been terribly hectic this week. But I expected as much with a payroll and billing in the same week.
On the garden front, the mandrake and belladonna are ready to be planted. I still need to pick up seeding soil. I’ll for sure do it this weekend. For now, the seeds are still in the fridge in water. The coriander and the chives didn’t come up. I’m sure they won’t now. The basil, however, is doing lovely. It’s getting big. I’m very happy about this.
I need to get the taxes together – maybe we can drop them off this weekend. April 15th is right around the corner and I’m messing around. Still have some readings to catch up on. I’m feeling, once again, like I have too much to do and not enough hours in my day. ::sigh:: Being busy all the time has advantages, but disadvantages, too. What I really need is a vacation from my life (a REAL vacation) for about two weeks. I’d say someplace tropical but DH isn’t a tropics fan. Last time we went to the Caribbean he got a terrible sunburn (we both did). So we’re still talking England or Scotland. We deserve it. Of course we’ve also discussed renting a cabin with friends on a lake in upstate NY. That might be fun, too. ::shrug:: Who knows. All I know is I’m ditching the computer next vacation and if I get a damn cold – I’m going to be SO pissed. lol! Nothing is worse than being on vacation and the relaxation itself causing the body to drop its guard. Of course I needed a good cold. I hadn’t had one in a few years. But if I have a repeat of November’s “vacation”… that would not be good.
Okay – enough of that. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends since November and I need to chill out. It’s all about the art of balance. I feel some Shadows Fall coming on…
