This past weekend was a quiet one at home, which suited us just fine. We don’t always feel the need to be on the move, and sometimes we like days like that.
Florida is in a real drought and in desperate need of rain. Wildfires are burning all over the state. We got a little bit of relief on Saturday when a storm system brought close to an inch of rain to us here in Edgewater, but that’s all gone now and it looks like it will be a while before we see much more.
I tried to get some writing done Saturday morning, but just couldn’t get into it for some reason. So instead, I parked myself in my recliner and spent about three hours reading. I mentioned a while back that I’m into a book called The Son by Phillip Meyer, which has been made into a series on AMC. While the TV series does not follow the book word for word, both of them are darned good. Check out the e-book, it’s only $1.99 on Amazon.
While I was busy doing that, Miss Terry was putting together her new little Kromski loom, which will go with us when we hit the road in a couple of weeks, as well as finishing up a weaving project on her Baby Wolf loom.
Yesterday I was back in writing mode, cranking out over 4,000 words in my next Big Lake book. I’m over 20,000 words now and hope to get some more done before my son Travis and his wife Geli arrive for their visit.
Since I can’t buy clothing off the rack in my size, dwarf portly, any pants I purchase have to be shortened. I had several pairs that I bought a while back, so that kept Terry busy yesterday. I think she likes having her own sewing room almost as much a she likes having her own loom room.
Something else Terry likes is the beautiful bouquet of roses that Travis and Geli sent her for Mother’s Day, along with a box of chocolates and some scented bath oil. It really made her day.
I offered to take Terry out for dinner yesterday, but she said that with it being the weekend and Mother’s Day, most restaurants would probably be pretty crowded and she would just as soon have something simple at home, so that’s what we did. All in all it was a very nice weekend.
As much as we like quiet days at home, eventually we feel the need to get out and do something. So I think either today or tomorrow we may run into Daytona Beach and goof off a little bit and have dinner out.
Congratulations Roy Vannoy, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of Big Lake Blizzard, the fourth book in my Big Lake mystery series. We had 87 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon.
