It feels like fall. I got cold last night, working at my desk as the sun went down, so I started a fire in the kitchen (in the fireplace, not the middle of the floor) and finished up what I had to do there. OMGosh, it felt so good. I really like my fireplace. Mr. C did a fabulous job putting it in. He built the hearth from stone they pulled from under the house when they shored up the foundation, and I had them take the extra time to put in a gas burner that allows a real wood fire atop it. I’ve got the best of both worlds with a quick starting fire using the gas, then turn it off and listen to the fire talk to me, telling me the story of the wood that’s burning. (Crap, there’s another short story for the anthology next year.)
The world book is going good. I’m right on schedule and should be turning it in at the end of the month as planned. Wow. I will be celebrating this one. I have learned tons and tons of in’s and out’s of how Word functions. I decided to use the original Al font for Takata, so his lyrics will be in his own handwriting. I’m working on chapter two today, and should finish up the brush through by tomorrow. Onward!
