POTD: Pete's Dragon

Little guy has fallen in love with the movie “Pete’s Dragon”. Had to hunt down the Golden Book for him.

POTD: Lemons

Lots of lemons on the lemon tree right now.

That’s all I could come up with today for a photo.  Getting hit hard by the fatigue stick, and it’s pretty much all I can manage to get writing done, keep the house running and do the bare minimum of exercise.  But I’m still going.

POTD: Groovy

The husband’s new shirt.

I’ve got nothing else today.  Part of my day was eaten by a medical appointment, but I still managed to get stuff done.  Kind of brain dead now, though.

Catching up from yesterday as well as today’s photo:

POTD: Shiny

Shininess in the mail from a very shiny person who I am going to miss dearly.

POTD: Scribe

One of my favourite necklaces, one of the Scribe series from Sihaya Designs.

I am having one of those horrible days when I just feel like I’ve forgotten to do something.  What that something is, I have no idea.  I have cleaned the house, I have written, I have done some admin type organisation of writing stuff.  I have no idea.

Routine will be getting interrupted tomorrow with a rheumatologist appointment.  Blah.  Still, it has to be done.  Hopefully I can still manage a decent writing day.  If not, I actually wrote on the weekend, so I have words banked, so to speak.

POTD: Fox!

Fox from le animale.

This little foxy guy arrived in the mail this week.  And yes, I am quite addicted to le animale totems, in case no one has noticed ;)  They’re kind of like that.

Australia Day today, for which we did absolutely nothing.  I was mildly productive this morning, managing to write up and post a review here, and finish writing up my notes for a novel I betaed for a friend.  And then I kind of crashed out.  I had actually wanted to do some writing, but that didn’t happen.  Oh well, the weekend is actually supposed to be my time to refill the well.

POTD: Contributer copies
My contributer copies of Bloodstones.

Shiny mail today, as you can see.  One of those copies has been gifted to my mother already (because without her helping out with kidlet sitting, this story would not exist).  I actually purchased a shiny hardback copy, and am tempted to do a giveaway of my other paperback copy now.  My only caveat is that I’d really like you to review it (so if you’re a seasoned reviewer, all the better).  It is a damn fine anthology.  And you can hate on my story all you like ;)  I’m a big girl, I can take criticism.

Good and productive day today, in which I have been the most well I’ve been in a week.  Managed a decent exercise session, got a good writing day in (2400 words), and finished betaing a novel for a friend.  Just need to sit down and write out some notes on said novel, and I’m done with that.

Now for the weekend.  Long weekend, too (for Australia Day, for those reading overseas).  Not that the long weekend affects me much.  I expect I’ll be writing Monday as usual.  Hope you all have a good one, though!

POTD: Cat TV

Jilly has a hard life.  Well, she would say she does, since she doesn’t get to get outside to get the birdies.

Kind of a rough day today.  Still recovering from the gastro, and I’m exhausted.  It took me all of my energy to just get the grocery shopping done.  I suspect that I’ll be sleeping hard tonight.  Hence the lack of imagination in the photo today.  But cats are always a good subject.

POTD: Totoro!

Collection of My Neighbour Totoro plushes.

Today I started rewriting Shaede.  A very new version, which has some of the bones of the old one, but a lot of new flesh.  And despite the fact that I am still in major recovery mode from the gastro, and my brain is a bit fuzzy, I managed a 2k writing session.  That’s pretty decent.  I’m hoping that having a really good outline will help me actually get this draft written quickly, rather than my usual meandering about.

No photo of the day for the last few days for a very good reason: gastro.  Or food poisoning, but really, when you’re sick as a very sick thing, you don’t really care.  On Sunday, in extreme amounts of pain, dehydrated and unable to get out of bed, I was very close to asking the husband to take me to the hospital so I could at least get put onto an I.V.  Thankfully, I managed to keep down some painkillers and water after that, and started to recover.

It came on Saturday night, and now, Tuesday evening, I’m just starting to feel normal again.  Even had something approximating a normal (albeit small) meal for dinner, so I’m calling that a win.

Somewhere in the middle of still being a bit dizzy and nauseated, I did manage this, though:
POTD: Outline

That would be the outline for the new, revamped version of Shaede.  All 33 pages of it.  Yeah, apparently I don’t write short outlines.  All going well, I will be starting with the actual writing tomorrow.

POTD: It must be bunnies

Bunny totem sculpture from le animale arrived in the mail today.  I don’t even have the words for how adorable he is – little pink paw pads and everything!!  Liam was utterly enchanted by him – I bought this one because it reminds me of how much Liam loves his favourite toy rabbit.

A prayer for a friend on my bedroom shrine.

POTD: Waiting

Two of the regular visitors to the garden, a pair of Australian Ravens.  Part of a larger group, which usually comprises four or five birds.

POTD: The ending of a thing

In the mail today.

I started reading the Wheel of Time books back when I was at uni, probably in first year if I remember correctly (which was when I was 18).  I am now 35, and I hold the last book in my hand.

I don’t read much epic fantasy at all these days, but for WoT, I make an exception.  I am going back to the beginning and starting from book one.  I could be a while.

POTD: Relaxed Jilly

Jilly has a hard life. Really.*

*Technically, she does have a three-year-old chasing her and “loving” her a lot.

POTD: Bye bye heater

Meet the old wall heater in our lounge room. As best as we can tell, it was installed when the house was built (1971). The people who lived here before us never used it in the ten years that they were here. I never dared to actually turn it on.

Enter the government’s gas appliance rectification program:

POTD: Heater gone

They came on Friday and removed the old heater, as well as the flue, gave us a new gas bayonet point and installed ventilation. We got a shiny new portable heater which we can actually move between rooms (and set to automatically come on in the morning before we get up – luxury!).  On Saturday, the builder came and bricked up the hole in the wall and plastered it.  We need to paint in the lounge room anyway (the whole house, really), so there’s no drama having the patched wall visible for a while.

The only annoying thing is that it’s the middle of summer and I have to wait months to use the new heater!

POTD Instagram book

Got a Blurb book printed out of some of my Instagram photos from last year.  Am quite pleased with it.

POTD: Vampires

Today involved a morning lost to medical issues.  Including visiting the pathology lab to give way too many vials of blood.  Next challenge is booking in some wonderfully invasive tests.  Chronic illness bites, especially when it looks like you might be developing another one.

POTD: Exterminate!

The son of two geeks has little hope of growing up to be non-geek.  Saw these in the shops yesterday, and Liam was enchanted, immediately imitating the “Exterminate!”.  Never mind that he’s never seen Doctor Who and has no idea what a Dalek is.  Yet ;)

POTD: Girl Who Would Be Kind Kickstarter rewards

 

Got my Kickstarter rewards for The Girl Who Would Be King Kickstarter today.  Very shiny indeed.  Apologies for the terrible photo, it was horribly humid and hot all day today and my brain was melting out of my ears.
