We'll see if it will accept the hearts I put in the subject field ☀

Hi,

I've been writing like mad - on stories - so I've not been around a great deal on here or forums or . . .
wherever.

I'm mostly well. Still battling the blues and the blahs.

Have had some surprisingly fantastic responses to "The Blessing". It is going very well and Golden and I are working well together.

Wrote two stories for the May Marigold's challenge.

As I said - writing like mad.

Been watching birds out my front window.

Been sorry it's getting so warm. Normal for this time of year and the summer but I never like the heat, especially with the humidity.

Play my fiddle off and on everyday. Not very disciplined of me - that's normal. Not the best way to improve, but at least I'm playing. I've found it to be very soothing when I'm feeling ruffled or down.

Do all sorts of errands and favors for Bruce and the kids, so I'm out and about more than usual. Another reason I'm not on here as much.

I miss you all. I really do. I'll try to catch up as I can.

Tonight I'm at Sarah's watching the boys then having a movie night :-)

Lots of hugs to you all!!
Pearl

Ditto on the heat - it's too soon! Especially with the humidity. Glad to hear the writing's going well. My current activity is finally being able to get my hands on the yard and clean it up.

Fun! good luck with the yard :-) I've been pecking away at ours. Slowly but surely it's improving.

I am very glad to hear you have stories in the challenge. I am looking forward to reading all of the challenge stories this weekend. I didn't take a starter this time because of work but I hope to be able to do one next time. I am hoping things will be better now that I have the system and can do some of my overtime from my home. Cross your fingers for me. (OH, but now while you're playing your fiddle.)

Enjoy movie night!

LOL No, not while I'm playing my fiddle ;-)

Cool that you can now do some of your work from home! Hopefully that will ease some of your stress, though I'm sure no where near all of it. I will most certainly keep my fingers crossed :-)

I am off tomorrow and I actually plan to do several hours of overtime from my house with a cat on my lap. I find I work better with a cat around. LOL

Busy is good. Glad to hear you are busy and doing things your own way. I was recently reading in a book about "conventional" wisdom. The book was explaining how "conventional" wisdom is not always the best because "conventional" mearly means that is the most commonly accepted idea. Conventional thought and wisdom used to say that the world was flat and that leeches were an effective means of ridding the body of illness. So conventinal wisdom might dictate that you should play your fiddle for a certain amount of time in a single sitting, daily, and in that time have a structure format to the practice, to improve upon a chosen set of skills. However, such conventional wisdom does not allow for the specialized needs and thinking of the individual. God made you an individual so I say screw conventional wisdom. You keep doing it all your way. Stick it to the man! Annarchy!! Attaka!! Viva la Revolution! I want my MTV!!!

I would go out and burn my bra but I really like my bra since it gives me all kinds of interesting cleavage and it is my bra with the little latte and esspresso coffee cups all over it, very cute.

MysteriousWays- I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.
