Pondering Thoughts

I’m sitting at the library parking lot waiting on middle son from school. Clouds are looking rather like winter. Not sure I’m ready for that.

I like winter but not the road mess and bitter temps. A nice snowfall is pretty. Just hate the messy streets. I’m hoping hubby can make it through the mountains safely, truck driver. Sounds like they will be wintery. Still shaking my head for him wanting to truck drive after military retirement. ๐Ÿ™‚

Earlier in the day I began editing my book. I went to print after I was done and looks like the printer has decided to die a slow broken ink death. I’m going to try one more cleaning and maybe order a cheap black ink before I let it go. I can’t complain it has lasted us about twelve years and was about hundred dollars. I sure will miss it. Of course, I don’t want to have to get use to a new one. Sigh.

I got home and did the cleaning on the printer and it worked. I hope to baby it along until after Christmas. Small budget so got to do what I got to do. ๐Ÿ™‚

I posted another chapter that I edited. Sorry for the wait. Last week was more about getting ready for the youngest son’s sleepover birthday celebration. One would think at his age he would be done with that. lol It went rather well. Good kids. They had fun. They even went outside and played hide in the dark tag. LOL. Glad kids will still play those fun games. I recall dark time was the fun time to do them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Later that evening I took them to the movie Hacksaw Ridge. Hubby was too tired so he stayed home. I think he didn’t want to put up with five teenagers. lol. Anyway, the movie was really good. A few laughs and definitely sad moments. One I will watch again, but wait until video.

It is expensive to go to the movies.

We might average one a month if we are lucky. We rent mostly. Of course, the boys picked the very front row! Well, it wasn’t too bad because the theatre is small and it has the rounded screen, so it seemed almost like you were right there. I guess we were right there. LOL Good times.

Have a great evening! Stay warm or stay cool, whichever. We are currently in between. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

Pondering or Procrastination…who cares!

Obeyville-Snoop-Book-Cover-1ย I am back to editing and writing!

I think I pondered enough, seven months worth! ๐Ÿ™‚ Or was it procrastination? Either way it felt good to write again today. I like my first chapter for the first time in the three years I began this quest. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think that is a good sign and I will run with it. Good vibes! ๐Ÿ™‚

I need to adjust my type on the cover but currently I do not have the software to do so. I do like the cover for the most partย but I think I need to ponder it some more. ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL

I do believe unless I get very windy at the end of the book it will become a novella. I think that is more my calling than a lengthy novel. Time will tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

laughing_kittenย Just had to insert this funny cat laughing. It shows the mood I am inย and when I am in a good mood the words flow! ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, who can resist a cute cat. Ok, don’t answer that.

smile bookNow for some fun passages from the first chapter to get you thinking about the book. Hopefully. ๐Ÿ™‚

“The memories I have with my friends sliding down the steep creek bank zooming across the frozen water to the other side were the best times.”

“I enjoy finding new things to sell especially at garage sales. I blame my mom for that one, she started me young going to those. One person’s tosses is another person’s treasures, she loves to say.”

“On the left side of the path I could see the old crooked tree that we loved to play truth, dare, or double dare around. We nicknamed it the Love Tree.”

“I could drop to the ground and hide among the tall grasses. Sting weed and snakes. I do not like that combination.”

“My head thumped the hard ground and the world went dark.”

Stay tuned! ๐Ÿ™‚

The adventure begins! ๐Ÿ™‚
