Lazin’ on all the summer afternoons..

August 20th, 2021Posted by Nancy

The heat continues and it has managed to sap a good deal of my motivation to do much more than read, lie under the fan, and watch Youtube videos.

On the positive side:

  • wrote 5,000 words in July.
  • went to the museum for a safely-masked visit of two excellent new exhibits.
  • had lunch on a patio twice.
  • had my hair cut for the first time since November 2019. This was long overdue.
  • had a wonderful visit with my brother and hugged my father for the first time since October 2019.
  • I am getting a steady supply of beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini from the garden. Anybody want some?
  • resumed pulling up invasive plants as part of the local stewardship program.
  • am on the verge of going back to dance class.

On the negative side:

  • have not progressed farther than spray painting the frame on my latest mosaic..
  • my 5,000 words may all get cut, as the scene I was writing seems to be neither necessary nor exciting.
  • I continue to be adrift with regards to where either of my WIPs are going. Every bit of potentially interesting information I acquire through the aforementioned YouTube videos is just another shiny object and I dart from one to the next without any of them actually solving the numerous problems.
  • it’s much too hot for either pulling weeds or dancing, so both activities are/will be less satisfying than they could be.
  • the world is going up in flames and shows every sign it will continue to burn.

But cottage country is beckoning shortly, so will hope a dip in a cold lake will wake me back up and lead to a productive fall.

And for your amusement, and after a great deal of computer angst, a before and after.
